    Only way Canada can win this is if Davison counterattacks Southee. If not, Southee will get a 5-fer I reckon'.

    Also, Cheema needs to come good.

    Only way for Canada to win is if NZ bats first and folds for 200 and Davison scores a ton in the chase.

    I want NZ to take this game seriously, and that means bowling first so that we skittle them for 80 runs and then knock it off professionally. The reason why we are minnow bashers is that we never take someone lightly. Canada bowled well against Pakistan and their opening bowler looks decent. Reckon we should treat him with respect.

    NZ shouldn't give a flying **** about entertaining the crowd in this game.

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

    Hope Nathan McCullum bowls a good spell in Vettori's absence.

    Is this match being played in Kandy, and if so what are the conditions expected to be like?

    Canada have a few good bowlers but their top order batting has been consistently poor, even against other associates. I'm as fair as anyone to the minnows but Canada really don't have much of a chance at this level.
    Every 5 years we have an election and have to decide who are the least obnoxious out of all the men. Then one gets in and they age really quickly. Which is always fun to watch.

    If Canada repeat their bowling performance against Pakistan with the ball, then the match might get interesting. I can't see it happening though, should be a one-sided match.

    New Zealand easily. They love thrashing minnows.

    FFS, I hope NZ bat first against a minnow for once. The 10 wicket wins against Zim & Kenya were so boring ...

    Canada fields first. Good to see Williamson back, though I'd have liked woodcock to get a game.
