Black Caps v South Africa



  • Yeah - we've got some batting power, so if the deck is true we should be able to go close - or completely self-destruct...though that's part of the game.

    I don't really understand our bowling plan at all. Surely the last thing you want to bowl is a ball short of the length on off stump e.g. the first ball of Southee's final over. I think I'd rather see a half volley.

    If you can't bowl a yorker, do you really have much business bowling in T20?

    Yorker...a foot outside off stump...not many places you can hit it. Yorker on the stumps as another variation. Gives the batsman much more to think about.



  • Munro the dirty slogger continues.......



  • Fuck.
    Munro misses a half volley first ball and is bowled.
    Fuck.
    Fuck.

    Where the fuck is Martin Guptil when you need him?
    Ross Taylor anyone?

    I knew he'd go first ball.



  • .... imagine if we had a proper batsman available with experience in the top order. I suppose there's no chance of that happening though...



  • Colin fucking Munroe

    I don't think we have any of those around....
    scratches head......

    Nup, cant think of anyone.

    Hesson might know of a 17 year old who just hit his first 50 in a T20 college game though.



  • Gee im glad Munro got picked over Taylor...



  • Finally a shot with some fucking attitude.

    Still, hardly rollicking along at 19/2 off 4....



  • I already hate this Morris fluffybunny, fuck him and his accurate disciplined bowling.

    Someone fucking smack him already.

    Please.

  • I don't really mind this selection experiment.

    They've basically picked Kane to anchor the innings and then a bunch of hitters around him.

    Philips, Munro, Bruce, Anderson, Ronchi, De Grandhomme - even the guys who follow - Boult and Southee.

    Most of the time a couple of those are going to come off and do some damage.

    It might be going a bit over the top with muscle, but I'm interested to see what happens.



  • Kane gone.

    Everybody get rain dancing.



  • Bloody hell, the NZ bowling. Boult absolutely top class, with a staggering 2-8, economy rate 2. The other bowlers clocked up economy rates of 12.25 (Wheeler) 11.75 (Southee) 10.0 (Santner) 7.33 (CDG) and 11.0 (Munro).



  • @Mokey nope. We lose if it rains now.



  • @Damo We are going to lose anyway.

    How the fuck Anderson is asking such a high IPL price, I'm sure I don't know.



  • Luke Ronchi. Why?



  • Men against boys.
    What a fucking joke



  • @Donsteppa Luke FUCKING ROCHI can fuck the fuck off! why the fuck do we persist with that mother-effing muppet
    best keeper in NZ this format my arse.
