Evening Anon,

Surely it's only an anticlimax if it's unexpected?

Always knew you were not a genuine BC fan. We always see that coming. :nod:

Can't argue with that. Dominant series from the poms. Too good. :thumbup:

I know it's scant consolation, but NZ did far far better against England than the Crims did.

Was a strange series

NZ were on target for an easy win before the freakish run out of santner then NZ wouldve been 3-1 up going into the last game and series won

But then 2/3 games we lost we were hammered- English deserved to win because our batting wasn’t up to scratch and your death bowling is better

This.

But England were bloody impressive. Totally deserved winners and such nice guys too.

Bastards :x :x :x :x



We've had some good series v NZ - and they are invariably played in a great spirit.

All went a bit pear shaped for NZ today - but it was a very competitive series. NZ, perhaps, a bit too reliant on a handful of players that always need to be at their best. Munro was very disappointing and Chapman had a terrible start to his international career. Guptil not quite at his dominant best.

Taylor was superb, as was Williamson. Santner had a brilliant series with the bat - they could bat him one or two place higher - he seems to be a much smarter player than DeGrandhomme.


Test series will be interesting.

It's pretty much always been the case though. Hadlee/Crowe, Taylor/Williamson, Bond/Flem sort of. It's very rare our entire top order fires and bowlers clean up as a unit.

I honestly believe we set up our players for failure. This Chapman kid has been fairly prolific for Hong Kong and domestically and throw him in to the wolves. I would play him around 5/6 and let him work is way into international cricket. Now he's most likely going to be dropped. Score some runs, come back in and fail. Same shit, different day. Colin Munro should be tossed for a while. Or dropped down the order until he finds his mojo.
We really need some tall plum to come in and hit the deck back of a length. Theyre all very much the same at the minute. Tallish, medium swing bowlers and of there's no movement, it's a long day.

Someone at work was claiming England are now on 5 series winning streak in 50 over games. Had the vague notion they somehow dropped a series to WI ???

Astle is seen as the better option as he strengthens the batting. Which isn't that strong.

I find that ridiculous and negative from hesson etc

We need to take 20 wickets to win the match - not worry about whether the no. 8 batsman can score -that’s the job for our specialist batsman, anyway sodhi is no mug with the bat

Astle is hardly going to win us a game, sodhi has more potential - gladly proved wrong but I can’t see it

Yep. Sodhi has been the only one to really trouble the english batsmen so far. Ridiculous decision.
