bit of a yawn game TBH

 

 

You are a hard man to please, Ross looks sublime and Nichols is over 100SR. :-)

It wont be Yawn if Sri Lanka finally score in the middle order and leave Perera 60 off 80 balls.

 

 

It's a dead rubber, SL is ranked low, it doesnt really prove too much. yes those two are playing well, bowling is less than sublime for sure. I(d get bored watching All Blacks play Scotland over and over as well

Yeah I gotcha, I thought thats what you meant. Cricket isnt your fav sport but you enjoy it? What would be your Fav sports to watch? I know you like F1.

 

I think I love league and cricket because they were the sports I played post school. Although i did win an under 16s nationals field hockey champs. Havnt followed the sport in years. I also played B Ball, so find that interesting. And I enjoy football, but prefer playing it on Xbox :-). Oh and NFL. Ive always had a curiosity toward it, played some flag Grid Iron in Aus for a year, was less fun to play for me than watch.

Its a fave sport of mine for sure, but like I said, hard to watch AB's play Scotland week in and week out , or Federer play the 65th ranked guys week in and week out. Grand Slam Tennis is big for me as is F1.

 

Im waiting for India that's our prep for the WC

Always sensational to hit a 6 to bring up a ton. Nice one Henry.

 

Im really digging how our middle order is hitting form just before the WC.

I think you will enjoy some of the newer bowlers. Clearly the batsmen are insanely good.

If we play India like we are today, we actually have a chance of winning a game or 2.

Looking at those fasted 100s, corey anderson stands out by a long shot with 36 balls. He was mentioned prior to the series. Im not sure what happened there. If hes injured or not.

Avg 28 with the bat but more importantly only 25 with the ball, Corey is in the class level all rounder category vs Colins 30 and 30.

ill have to find out if hes injured. Definitely would make a great option in the 15.

 

Edit: Yep heal injury on return from UAE. Not sure if that heals before July.

Thats a big call.  We have talent, a good and better amount than usual. But part of today and the other days is the opposition. If India is that good (I havent been watching, plus OZ is weak ) if we compete even if we dont win thats a plus. SL hasnt proven how we compete with top teams

So I am happy but are sensible and take us on trust at the WC and with India. India will let us see where we are on the pointy end

Its going to be the bowling that may struggle for us to get 10 wickets. In saying that their main seamer got MOT Series vs Aus, and their new Spinner took a 5fa on Debut.

But that fighting NZ spirit can beat any team on any given day. id say we are about 80% there abouts as good, so there is no doubt we CAN win. I hope if we lose it just isnt 5-0

Great throw Williamson, brilliant keeping Seifert, but man thats not out, Rubbish.

The one thing unlike League or Rugby that Cricket adheres to is the batsman gets the benefit of the doubt when technology is 50/50 and one view said safe, the split view said on the line but tell me 100% they are lined up at millisecond frames. Bad call.
