The Samoan Maori who arguably shouldn't even be in the team due to concentration issues has been confirmed ruled out due to a quadricep injury.

From Cricinfo:
NZC have confirmed Taylor's absence. Here's what they had to say: "Taylor, who has been battling a quadricep injury from the previous match, was only able to run at 70 percent without discomfort while taking a fitness examination this morning. After discussion between Taylor and medical staff, a joint decision was made that he would not be able to play in the deciding match and would be at high risk of significantly aggravating the injury ahead of the upcoming Test series."

The 5th ODI kicks off in Christchurch in about 25 minutes.

Ross Taylor and Jason Roy both out.

England has won the toss and will bowl.

I'd prefer NZ chasing. I think we lose thepblot a bit trying to work out what a good total is. Munro aims for 500 with 7 runs off 3 balls and then out. Williamson then comes in and scores 8 off 30.

Re: the polynesian thing in cricket.

I think it is a cultural/upbringing thing. If the game is big in your upbringing, you'll be into it. If not, it won't.

I am of samoan-heritage but I spent my formative years in Perth, WA (Australia) and cricket was a regular part of my life. After school, during school, hell even at parties we'd get the cricket bat and ball out and play drunken cricket. There are cricket nets at every local "oval" (local park) in the vicinity. There were 4 just within walking distance of my last house. As a result, I was hooked on the game and even went down to the nets by myself to practice my bowling. When I moved back to NZ, I found that cricket was nowhere the done thing among my family or in the wider Samoan community (except for Kilikiti during summer; and only then for the church teams but it wasn't a regular "go down to the local park and play kilikiti" type thing). Touch rugby (or even full tackle "touch" rugby) was the regular thing to do on social occasions. The cricket infrastructure in Auckland is also really poor. I went from 4 local parks with cricket nets within 10-20mins walk in Perth to 1 park with a cricket net nearly 10kms away (40min walk) in Manurewa, Auckland.

Most of the local parks here in Perth are actually laid out in ovals too. AFL in winter, cricket in summer. I dropped a friend off in the northern suburbs last week and drove past a succession of ovals on the way. It's a marked difference, you can see it from the air flying into any Australian city.

Can we please have multiple pages about Mark Champan's Chinese heritage?

I wonder if he is good at piano and maths.

Yep, that's where I lived (greenwood). There are cricket nets everywhere. :thumbup:

Why does Sky TV always notify us about the yellow button alternative commentary when there nothing on it?

How good is a proper sized ground!

I actually enjoy seeing batsmen having to work.

We don't need to panic! Run rate is slow but you can make that up later as long as you have wickets in hand.

Not Taylor, chapman. Hopefully he'll bat like Taylor as much he looks like him with my bung eye.

Chapman proving a none too able replacement for Taylor :)

Little bit in this for the spinners.
