You must be pleased SKl, keep it up N.Z, you are more than half way to history.
Especially with Australia's no 1 arrogant bowler unlikely to bowl. ohmy.gif

I have noticed in past post the soubriquet "Arrogant Australians" appearing under your contribution to enlightenment of the "not so arrogant" Is this Jealousy at a country more successful in sport, having the highest of standards of living, having year after year won the most liveable cities in the world for most of its' capital cities has the highest amount of home ownership, and a lifestyle that stands out in the world as desirable and on top of that the highest listed minimum wage.

Arrogant!!! What a petty little put down of a great sporting identity.

We have to beat England first, Dave, which will be a challenge. Their batsmen are good but so are our bowlers.

Sadly, we don't have Brendan McCullum now and our batsmen have not been exactly consistent. Here's hoping Martin Guptill keeps up his good record this competition. The game is on around 4.00 am Thursday New Zealand, so not such a good time!

For the life of me, I cannot understand the mentality of the Australians in this latest cricket debacle in South Africa. They have the best players in the world yet feel the need to cheat when the chips are down. They are the world experts in sledging but can't take it from the opposing teams.

I've never rated Steve Smith as a captain. He is probably the top batsman in the world, but as a captain he is not capable (in my opinion). I have no words to describe David Warner but just can't stand the man. All I will say is he is no sportsman.

So pleased I am not an Aussie supporter - they must be cringing at this latest carry-on.

On the positive side, the Black Caps beat England on the final day of the first test yesterday. What a strange game after England were bowled out for 59 in their first innings. Despite two days of heavy rain, I thought England could just about manage a draw but although they rallied in the second innings, NZ stuck with it and won in the end. Well done, New Zealand.

All this cheating in cricket is outrageous. I’m still trying to figure out how the West Indies got it to rain in Zimbabwe last week to knock Scotland out of the World Cup sad.gif And if I meet those guys, Duckworth, Lewis and Stern, they’d better watch out, that’s all eyebrow.gif

The Duckworth Lewis system is supposed to be fair but really, how often it seems to be the opposite! I didn't see the Scotland qualifying game but felt their disappointment. It's just not cricket!

The team backing second should try to ensure they are always marginally ahead on the DL system
just in case of rain.
