    The only good about being part of Tasmania was that we would of got Ricky Ponting at 3, but who needs him now?

    New Zealand now officially better than all other non-subcontinental teams.

    NZ has played more ODI's in the sub-continent than any of the non-SC sides in the last six months. I guess all those thrashings by BD and India are now finally paying off. I don't think they will progress any further but who knows? They are peaking at the right time and you can never write off a team with the likes of Taylor and Vettori. They are the best fielding side left in the tournament. If they do somehow make it past SL and if India beats Pakistan, I would actually be quite worried. The Indian team will be on a huge high and will probably underestimate NZ with potentially fatal consequences.

    Agreed. You can see that the likes of NcCullum and Southee are finding their feet in these conditions. Compare that to the performance of say, Anderson, or Morkel who haven't had the same opportunities, and you can see the difference.

    If we have an NZ and Pak final I'd probably put my money on NZ.

    Too sensitive. That was a blatant attempt at being funny.
