Karl on ... finding the edge

The Listener's Paul Lewis wrote an article recently which I agree with wholeheartedly. In Finding the Edge, he writes that the key to New Zealand succeeding in one-day cricket is succeeding in test match cricket. Have a read of it - I find it convincing, but then on this matter i'm easily convinced. My one area of disagreement with the article is that Lewis says that the focus on one-dayers in recent years has been in addition to, rather than at the expense of, test cricket. I disagree. I think we are playing much less test cricket than ever before. Although later today I'll do an analysis of how much we have played and report back!
