I have really enjoyed the recent ODI series against the West Indies and India - because the Black Caps have played so brilliantly and have been winning.

However, with actual and suspected cases of match fixing swirling around (particularly in India) it does make me wonder how the world's top-ranked ODI team and the reigning world champions can come here and not win one out of five ODI games, against the eighth-ranked ODI side.

Not a Conspiracy Theorist and all this is mainly tongue-in-cheek - but as I said, it made me wonder.

Who knows.I have hardly watched any due to disenchantment over Black Caps, but I saw some last night. Woeful batting. You are better to bat to close to the required run rate and be bowled out rather than bat to watch a soaring Req Run Rate. I did notice that some batting strokes appeared too poor, no timing, amateurish, and I did wonder about intention. Hard to bat like a dummy if you aren't, it looks too obvious, as it did.

Dude ... in cricket anything can happen ... I also think Chris cairns is being stuffed over as revenge ... Apparently he has been given zero detail about the mystery investigation that apparently involves him

So who knows ... Maybe the match fixing involves chasing 400+ which could mean a cool Sunday to watch if the weather holds up
