    I thought the winner plays either Sri Lanka or England.

    Yep, it could be Australia vs Pakistan and Sri Lanka vs New Zealand all over again.

    Heh, seems I'm outvoted on the NZ-must-not-bat-first approach. That would be our weakness vs SA's alleged weakness, as opposed to our slightly-not-as-weakness vs SA's strength. When you look at it that way.... It's just I can't see us scoring anything remotely competitive batting first - will struggle to make 200 imo. Our bowling is alright, but unlike England (who defended under 200), we don't have the strikepower to knock over a side really cheaply on a good day.

    NZ team picks itself - it's the one Flem posted. No need to play Williamson or Tuffey.

    Guptill, McCullum and Franklin - Lock them in for single digit figures against this attack. If New Zealand are to post/chase a decent score they'll be relying solely on Ryder, Taylor and Styris.

    Lower order good for a few runs too.

    I have to play cricket on saturday and have a prize giving to go to - so won't be pulling an all nighter for this. Even though many of you blokes will be. I will come to this thread in the morning to read what happened.

    I guess not to sound defeatist - but at least we made the quarters and won a game against Pakistan. I think we are really relying on Ross Taylor to have the best inning of his career and you still can't say that he is in form yet.

    Vettori and Mills need to pop as many pain killers as humanly possible and play.

    This game feels more important than the champions trophy final we were in. Chance for a Kiwi to make himself into a legend. That means you Ross. No pressure though.
    1) Ross is Boss.
    2) See point 1.

    Leading the charge against nuances being used in posts.

    Overrated XI M Bracewell, Burns, Rahane, Don Voges, Bairstow, Alecz Day, Donovan Grobelaar, Luke Ronchi, Faulkner, Dan Christian, Permaul

    I think you are remembering the team we used to be - when we were good at chasing. Now days we basically need the other day to have an off day. So I would go with whatever South Africa least prefer rather than what we are reputed to be better at.
    If our team was still playing well then I would say bat 2nd for sure.

    In the past I would have liked New Zealand to bat second, but we are at our strongest when Mills and Southee are bowling with the new ball under lights. Therefore, I think we should bat first, even though we will stutter, fart and stumble our way to 210.

    We need to get Amla, Kallis and AB early or we are in trouble.

    SA has got some tough choices...Can't believe it but Botha might have to miss out. I can see Van Wyk keeping his spot ahead of Ingram sadly. Van Wyk is a good player but has to bat in the top 3 then if he plays.

    1. SMITH
    2. AMLA
    3. VAN WYK
    4. KALLIS
    5. AB
    6. JP
    7. FAF
    8. PETERSON
    9. STEYN
    10. MORKEL
    11. TAHIR

    If Styris gets in with enough overs to go to ton up that is a worrying thought.

    Pig is usually very consistent against South Africa, has a solid record with the bat and has chipped in with some vital wickets in the past. Oram and Mills are the other guys who historically like South Africa. The likes of Taylor, McCullum and Vettori don't have much previous. Vettori in fact has a terrible career record against South Africa in tests and ODIs. Cue a bucket load and vital runs from Dan on Friday night!

    Is there a reserve day for any of the quarter finals? If not, then South Africa wouldn't mind a wash out. Rain is forecast for later this week in Dhaka.
