    Very much looking forward to this match. Actually think NZ may take it out.

    Let the jinxing, The anti jinxing, and the New Zealand pessimism/realism begin in all earnestness.

    I have voted for NZ to win - but I think we are the underdogs. Pakistan seem to be a better squad than us.

    Our only hope for this tournament is for our top 4 to get on a hot streak.

    When in the days of yore we used to be ranked 4th in the world - we had 4 or 5 good batsman who would perform close to every game. Right now we seem to be down to nobody performing. Hopefully John Wright can turn it around. He seems to be off to a slow start, Wright, trying different things to see what will work and having trouble getting the batsman to turn up.

    I think Taylor is a class act. And while he may not come good this tournament he should be persevered with at all costs.

    Proudly against the bring back Bennett movement since he is injury prone and won't last 5 days.

    The fact we have recently played these guys should be a major advantage, compared to coming up against Sri Lanka bowlers such as Malinga and Murali that we have not faced in a while.

    Pakistan to win easily, Afridi to murder us on a track that actually takes turn.

    Would usually say Pakistan but in this case, I think NZ might finally play decent. I dunno. Seems hard to believe the batting could conceivably fail again.

    Where do you get such unwavering optimism?

    Afridi seems to have become a real handful with the ball these days and he has good support from the others as well. With Misbah and Younis to steady the ship and the Akmals to score quick runs they will be really handy with the bat. Tough team to beat at the moment so I think Pakistan will take this one.

    NZ will have their work cut out to handle Pakistan's attack. If they again end up in a situation where they're dependent on Vettori and NcCullum to score the bulk of their runs, they'll struggle.

    Pakistan start as clear favourites. But New Zealand are capable of springing more than a suprise. The New Zealand pace attack looks good and even their openers look good. Their only problem is the middle order. They havent been scoring for a while. Pakistan on the other hand look a balanced side and bat deep. They've got a good blend of aggression and experience
    I would like to watch bowlers dominate batsmen like a dog would a tail-wagging contest against a rabbit. Which means I spend most of my days fuming and cursing the game. The Newlands Test between South Africa and Australia has vindicated my belief that batsmen are a bunch of weak-minded, inept fools only good for waving about sponsor logos.
