    Here is proof Kyle Mills can walk on air.





    Because water is more dense than air, Kyle Mills has exceeded Jesus's feats and will now be taking over Jesus's position as Son of God.
    I logged in after doing my usual lurking just to acknowledge how many lulz this brought me.

    So stoked with the win. If South Africa B can win against SL I think it's game on. If we meet SL in the Semi, then I hope we've learned our lesson and studied how to pick the Murali doosra.

    Kiwi ground fielding is a thing of beauty BTW. Guptill is surely the best ring fielder in the world right now. They close in like a pack of wolves. It was amazing how they pushed up the RR from a comfortable 4.3 or something when Kallis was there to 6.5 in a matter of 10-15 overs.

    I presume this was aimed at me since I was the previous post above this comment.

    I re-read my post and couldn't see anything offensive or unintelligent in it.

    Possibly some banter when I said don't leave the fold next time.

    Anyways best wishes to you,

    New Zealand should be the seventh state of Australia.

    We'd get decent skiing and some of those Marlborough Pinots, you'd get a measure of relevance.

    But what would happen to all the Kiwi jokes then if we were the 7th state...I forget one of them I heard..something along the lines of...

    my brother is an alcholic and a convicted criminal
    my father does hard drugs and steals money from the rest of us to support his habit
    my mother cheats on my father and embezzles money from her company
    And then there's Tara but we don't mention her because she's married to a New Zealander.

That they are performing at this level should not surprise anyone too much. They have certainly picked the right time to lift their performance levels to match their ability.
    I kept saying this during their tour of India in the ODIs.. They are piecing together a very good batting unit... Congrats to them and all their supporters here.. One of the nicest bunch in CW.
    We miss you, Fardin. :(. RIP.

    The Son of God needs to recover from his quad strain first.

    In all seriousness,the gap between NZ and Australia has not been so close in a long time.

    Definite cause for celebration.

    good one
    And smalishah's avatar is the most classy one by far Jan certainly echoes the sentiments of CW

    Yeah we don't crap in the first world; most of us would actually have no idea what that was emanating from Ajmal's backside. Why isn't it roses and rainbows like what happens here? PEWS's retort to Ganeshran on Daemon's picture depicting Ajmal's excreta

    It's true. If we had another decent bowler and were scheduled to play test cricket between now and the next Australia series then that series could be quite interesting - I think we'd have a glimmer of hope.

    As it is though we'll be starting the season (slowly, as usual) and will not be able to bowl Australia out.
