    6* Times

    New Zealand has reached the semi's 5 times and has not of yet progressed further. This will be our 6th time can this be the one.

    1975...nz 158/10 vs wi 159/5
    1979...eng 221/8 vs nz 212/9 (pretty close also)
    1992...nz 262/7 vs pak 263/6 (probably our best chance)
    1999...nz 241/7 vs pak 242/1
    2007...sl 289/5 vs nz 208/10

    I'm not confident, but I'm not counting us out either.

    Do we have the ability? Yes

    Can we afford to play silly buggers against top notch sides? No way

    I don't think NZ will progress further.Both England and Srilanka have better sides,and i don't see NZ beating either.

    When James makes the post for the semi final - I am going to vote yes we will win regardless of who we are playing. But we will be underdogs.

    As posted earlier this game will be won for us by the video analyst. Regardless of who we play we need a plan to get their top players out.

    Our odds against Sri Lanka in Sri Lanka with an inspired Murali - 25%
    Our odds against England 40%

    Styris must bat again at number 5 and he must perform the innings of his lifetime. If I could pay $10 to send an email to the blackcaps wishing them good luck I would.

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

    I'd back us to smash England tbh. They have a history of bending over to even understrength NZ sides.

    England are certainly capable of beating us, but I think an NZ win is more likely at this stage. Especially with all the injury trouble England are having.

    Sri Lanka in subcontinental conditions...well I hope they miss their bus.

    We have two top batsman in Ryder and Taylor who are both capable of getting a century in the semi. And if Mills plays we have two of the better ODI bowlers going around.

    That said we are underdogs. But we were underdogs against SA - I was more despondent about our chances against them. That Tahir fellow intimidated me. I thought he was SA's missing piece of the jigsaw puzzle.

    The Smart Money will go against us no doubt.

    I am going to go sign into my twitter account to see if I can find any black caps to follow - I will try to see if I can message them.

    SL and pakistan are our main foes. England and India simply shouldn't/aren't allowed to win world cups.

    It was just said on the news 20 minutes ago the Kyle Mills will miss the semi and Andy McKay is being flown over.

    ****!

    Mills is an absolute must in the side. We really do need him, even if we beat SA without him.

    McKay being flown over? Interesting call. he's supposedly been in great rythym lately hasn't he? He's certainly been getting wickets, and if the rumour I heard that he's bowling real quick is true then that is always handy too.

    Can't message them through Twitter unless they follow me back - should have known.

    Found this quote by Guptil though on his acting in that commercial that amused me.

    @LizPuranam @Jez_Brown I did do some drama. 4th form was where it ended though! That sky ad, some of my best work.

    I'd actually back us to beat England but I also think England would fancy their chances against us - after all, they've been equally as random to NZ with regard to their form. I doubt we'd beat Sri Lanka, particularly at home. Given our struggles against them in recent times, and not to mention the thrashing they gave us in in the group stage, it'd be an unreal result if we were to upset them.

    I imagine if Mills is gone and we're looking to replace Woodcock with a seamer for the semi final, it'd be Tuffey getting a place in the side - would look a little bizarre if McKay played ahead of Tuffey given Tuffey's already with the side. In saying that McKay seems to have produced some impressive spells for Wellington in the Plunkett Shield as of late whereas I can't recall Tuffey being quite so dominant.

    I guess Tuffey was the wrong choice then. I think McKay will be jet lagged when he arrives...

    McKay got thumped in that India series in India

    Might be better off with Woodcock?

    Jesus is gone;Injury rules Kyle Mills out of cricket World Cup | Stuff.co.nz

    And back to reality aka The Injury Curse.

    Hope we can do well without our one world class seamer. It's Southee time.

    Tuffey has been rubbish for Auckland iirc. I'd play McKay if we removed Woodcock.
