A place for me to indulge my passion for New Zealand cricket, post those stories that don't make the back pages of the morning paper and discuss cricket with my friends.
I left the match when Australia were halfway toward the total. It was awful to watch. The last two games have been like watching a train crash that you know is coming - you know it's carnage but you can't take your eyes off of it. Only 3 players to my mind come out of the series with their reputations enhanced - H Marshall, McCullum and Vettori.Astle is now injured (again), Cairns is out of sorts (those run outs in Auckland were woeful), Mills just can't bowl. At least McMillan is looking a better cricketer than he has in years.
Hey Mike,Dont feel to rushed about losing again. The team was undermanned and NZ without Shane Bond and Daniel Vettori is always going to be a lesser unit. Look on the bright side..Astle and Fleming both showed encouraging form and I wouldn't be suprised if Fleming blasts NZ to a competitive total in the final game. Should be a tight game!
