Bangers have won the toss and will bat first.

So no Southee again. Looks like he's definitely on the outer for the ODI's then.

Good to see Guppy back. Still not sold on Henry as an opener.

Big swing from Trent's first two balls.

Jaffa to get rid of Iqbal :thumbup:

Hadlee/Bond with Boult first change would be my all-time NZ pace attack.

We seem very confused in regards to tactics and team selection. Something between Williamson and Gary Stead ain't in synch.

Southee isn't a great ODI bowler imo. He's too loose at times.

Matt Henry picks up an inside edge onto the stumps.

Chris Cairns as the 4th bowler, that is some attack.

I meant Henry Nicholls, not sure why I typed Henry.

Matt Henry is a good bowler, I'm happy with him but would still like to see Southee in the team.

That probably was not the smartest review. It always looked like an inside edge.

Chris Martin, if it was swinging, would make that a powerful attack. Of course, you would need to roll the opposition because he would add nothing with that bat (laughs and good times aside).

No way you'd be playing Martin if you already had Hadlee, Bond and Boult. If Martin is in he replaces Boult.

6/7 Cairns
8 Vetorri
9 Hadlee
10 Bond
11 Boult

Wouldn't matter as cairns would have the result stitched up anyway.

Interesting to note the commentators having a go at the selectors weird selection policies as well. Mostly in respect to Astle but the fact remains they are making some inexplicable decisions.

We have no idea who our best spinner is. Whoever it is, they should be playing.

Santner is clear No.1 in ODI's so they should be playing Astle or Sodhi as well as /Instead of him if tyhe plan is to take two spinners to the world cup.

Same as the backup keeper, why the fudge isn't Seifert or Nicholls keeping?

Southee hasn't played for the entire Indian series.

It's just dumb.


Great catch from Rosco there, that was flying.

Yes, they are only chasing 233 but even so, I think the openers are taking things a bit too steady as she goes.

EDIT: Sorry, Guppy, didn't realise you were listening.

Yeh this game won’t prove anything about Nichols chasing such a small total - easy to accelerate later to make his innings look good in the final standings- but no pressure

We need to bat first or hope the banglas post a decent total next time

Not sure how he managed to get out to that ball.

Nicholls really needs to be consistently striking at 80+ on the modern game otherwise he's eating up too many balls. He probably left 10-15 runs short of a reasonable innings off the number of balls he faced.

Yep with our bowling attack we will be facing some big totals to chase down in England - that was the idea with Monroe at the top of the order

60/0 after 15 overs isn’t going to cut the mustard and will put immense pressure on the rest of the batting line up

Be interesting to see if he can up the strike rate during this series because can’t just rely on guptil

His career strike rate is in the high 80s but most of that will be batting with the field back, so more gaps and runs run. At the top he has to have the skill and confidence to hit over the ring.

The problem is exacerbated if guptil goes out early - as he does a bit

Then you kane coming in for the power play and he’s not known for hitting over the top in Odis either (seems to go ok in the ipl though)

I like the idea of a big hitter at the top- just a shame Monroe couldn’t be consistent and control himself

I was thinking that - the problem with One Day cricket is that you often know the result with 6 hours still to go.

No wonder T20 has taken off.

Chris Cairns can fuck off out any NZ side for the ages. Bent scummer has no place in the history books and should only be looked back at with derision.

They're trying to nail down their CWC squad. Their was always going to be a lot of chopping and changing.
