    My stats lecturer is Sri Lankan and has been lording it over me since their win over us.

    Have stats tomorrow. Want to be able to brag for the rest of the semester.

    Presuming you're not a stats major and don't like stats, you already have bragging rights.

    That's true. But a win would be the icing on the cake.

    nervous?

    We're playing one more game then I thought we would, if we lose tonight I just hope they go down fighting and not spectacularly bad like always.

    I will get off the fence. Out of Woodcock Tuffey and McKay - i would play Tuffey. I think McKay will be tired from jet lag. He bowled in yesterday's practice on zero sleep apparently. Takes about 3 or 4 days to get over jet lag.

    I reckon Tuffey has more experience that Woodcock and will be less overwhelmed by the atmosphere.

    Hence Tuffey. Plus then people can post Tuffeh - tonight.

    Really I am a bit meh over the selection - the person will only bowl 5 overs hopefully.
    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

    Well that's why I am asking. I am wondering whether it's now a case of the team already exceeding expectations, so the NZ fans are already delighted. Or alternatively, they're in the semi now, they've got a capable team (albeit missing Mills), and there's strong belief that they can go one step further (and maybe two!).

    I'm not just happy we got here tbh. I want us to prove a point tonight, instead of having to listen to "they fought hard and tried their best" after another limp performance in a semi-final.

    Smash 'em NZ.

    For me because we have lost so many semis before I figure we have to win one eventually. Gamblers fallacy I know. I am not nervous just full of anticipation. If we had a 50% chance of winning then I would be nervous but we are underdogs.

    Looks like our team is making a big deal out of playing on a used wicket. I reckon we should just pick a team to play to the conditions and stop thinking about it. Vettori was almost insinuating something suspicious was afoot in his interview.

    Only sounds good when KiwiNinja says it.

    Who's in for watching the game tonight in NZ and who has to work tomorrow and get up in the morning...

    I have one lecture at 9am tomorrow. It's my easy day. So I'll get up for that, come home and crash again from 10-2 or so.

    i think vettori should play mind tricks on sanga and when the raise his comment at the the toss vettori should say " on reflection Im glad we are playing on the same track, it looks like eden park or sneddon and a good lot of our boys were raised on pitches like this one here, me included."

    I`m in Japan and the game starts at 6pm here. Going to get the beer and corn chips on the way home from work.

    The game finishes at 2am. Luckily, tomorrow I just need to show my face at city hall at 9:30am since it`s the end of term.

    I`m getting worked up now. I give us a 30% chance if we bat first, and a 10% chance if we bowl first.

    I am wondering if a half-fit Murali will be more dangerous than another fully-fit spinner. I think if they wheeled Murali up to the crease he could still take 4/30 since mentally he ****s all over us.

    We have to attack the parttime spinners. If some of the batsmen perish doing so, then so be it.


    If we bat first, I'd be happy with anything above 250.

    If we bowl first, I would be comfortable with anything under 220.

    That's my random thoughts for the match.

    ****ing smash 'em, New Zealand!

    The game starts at 3am here and I have work tomorrow. The plan was to get a few hours sleep in before the game starts, but I couldn't get to sleep.

    We have a software release on Thursday, so tomorrow's not going to be fun, but a win would make the lack of sleep a lot more bearable
