Finally, but needed him out 80 runs ago, great innings. India has 2 very dangerous sloggers to come.

Not sure whose collapse was worse, India's batting or our bowling.

Yeah and as soon as we bring on the strike bowlers they collapse.

Boult needs to bowl surely, he has 4 overs left.

I told you he was dangerous, 3x6s in a row.

But what is Astle doing bowling at the death, well I guess they know thats not the way to go in the future.

2 innings have killed us. Pandya 45 from 22, and Rayudu, did have a SR of 30 off 60 odd balls, finished at SR79, 113 balls. And 2 Cameos. what does India need Kholi and their top 5 batsmen for haha.

This is going to really test NZ

Nz best bowlers leaving out Boult, Henry with 4 wickets and Munro for his economy. i still think Williamson should have gone for the throat and bowled both henry and boult out when they were like 30/4.

India went from being 22/4 to posting over 250. Let that sink in. 

 

We have one bowler firing on all cylinders (Boult) but seem reluctant to use him, even when the game is getting away from us. 

 

We now need to chase down a score 100 runs higher than it should have been with a batting lineup we've also been playing silly buggers with right up until the last minute before the World Cup. And we're meant to be optimistic?

Yep I agree, we should have bowled Boult and Henry out like the last game, but Kane probably got told off for winning too fast and not getting to test Munro, Neesham, Astle, Santner, with only Munro being good.

I dont see the point of giving Santner 2 overs, but hes in the team to test his batting and ability to put on runs at the end, much like India have done.

I think Southee who hasnt played this series and Fergusson and Boult will be our fire seamers, Sodhi the spinner, possibly Colin D or Munro and Santner or Nesham (one has good bowling economy the other can bat), as our bowlers.

Oh Nochols has a terrible record last 11 games, surely they need to dump him like Munro who has a similar average at a higher SR?

Just jokes, but Nichols ODI record is suspect, hes a good Test player but seems to struggle with white ball cricket. Perhaps putting Watling to replace Nichols, move latham to open, move Munro to Lathams spot.

Only Munro being good?? Is he seen as a top notch water boy? From what Ive read Santner is already locked in

Actually this team, if they just drop Astle and put Guptil back in, wow thats a long batting line up haha. Of course Sodhi would replace somebody on some pitches.

But for me boult southee henry fergusson Sodhi is our obvious wicket taking bowling attack. One we havnt seen this series.

Its a vastly weakened India team, it should not test us, it should be 50/50. If this will test us, our WC campaign is already over?

When the commentators talk about Munro and they say words such as sucker delivery, kitchen sink, you have to wonder.

At 24 and out he has increased his average....  When he lined up for that shot it was going to be a good hit, no matter what the ball was.

Munro again falls to the sucker ball, wide of off stump but drags it on, it is bad luck, but stop hitting wide off stump balls. I guess at least he got the run rate up after Nichols playing like a true test opener and out.
