West Indies started their NZ tour with a dismal bowling performance at Auckland outer oval. The opener McIntosh made a patient 78 (for what he is known for) while no name poor averaged players in International arena RA Jones and GJ Hopkins both in their thirties were rewarded with a double and a century respectively as Auckland declared after pummelling the Carribean bowlers for 156.1 overs making 587 runs while loosing only 7 wickets.

In reply WI made 82/0 while a patient start from both the openers Chattergoon and Marshall made it possible to keep any wickets to fall bringing cheers to the district side.

The rest of the tour as follows:

Good to see Franklin back as a BATTING ALLROUNDER, he is a much better batsmen than Oram will ever.

Note though I dont think it is wise for you to go around calling them no name players, imagine what there averages would be if they played in your joke of a domestic competition

Sorry to hurt your feelings bro. But truth is I checked their averages. Performance wise they are well below average than a lot of the younger players who played for NZ. I stricted my comment on Intl. for that reason.

Calling BD domestic competition a joke is not wise. Although my context was not about domestic league but I think we all agree that BD is somewhere in between. Look at our ICL performance. Also consider that how we managed to win a match against the said semifinalist before the WC began.

How could you forget that if DV was not so resistant it would have been our second test win this year in CTG?
We also earned a precious win against NZ this year.

welcome to your world.

at any rate, even great players "throw their wicket away" 90% of the time. even the greatest bowler doesn't "earn" 3/4s of his wickets.

difference a good batsman will score 40-50+ runs on average before throwing his wicket, and occaisionally score 100+ and rarely 200+

bangladesh batsman will score average of 20+, with the occasional 50, and rare 100.

your boys will score 30 on average, with fair amounts of 50s, and rare 100s.

**********************************

this series should be a good contest though. NZ's poor batting versus WI poorer bowling. NZ's solid bowling against WI solid batting.

who will come out on top???

So when was the last time that a white guy played for the West Indies?

I was watching the game yesterday (being on vacation in Bangladesh and having access to chorai satellite with channels that I don't even know the names of) and Brendon Nash looked pretty good until he got out (sound familiar)? I know a Chinese dude had once played for them and the term "Chinaman bowler" originated from the way he used to bowl, but when was the last time they had a white kid in the squad?

edwards got a good delivery that would have undone a much better batsman. But i am furious at the other 3 tailenders u mention especially powell; he only contributes once in a blue moon with the ball and his approach to batting is a joke..

Having said all that, the windies top order must step up more often and stop relying on chanderpaul and playing wreckless shots!

if windies could bat ten more overs and add 20 more runs then this match would be a draw

They say test match cricket is struggling and they ruin the chance for us to pull off an astonishing win with a decision like that, im utterly fuming we have the audacity to chase after a total 312 off 60 overs and its thrown in our face

So it was 2 super overs instead of 'bowl out'

Sovik
December 26, 2008, 08:34 AM
i missed the super overs

Baundule
December 26, 2008, 12:58 PM
I watched the match almost from the beginning to the end. I was trying my best not to support the west indian losers; but that Gayle guy was not letting me doing that. New Zealand scored a very mediocre score of 155 and Gayle alone scored 67 in a very quick time. Marshall provided some support for a while; but everyone else tried their ultimate best to lose the match. Those losers failed in doing that too! And after 20 overs, the score was a tie.

I watched the first bowl out in 20-20 (also between these same teams, if i can recall correctly) and now they have introduced that super over thing. In a super over elimination, every team chooses 3 batsmen and a bowler. The bowler obviously bowls one over, while the 3 batsmen bat as usual, applying all the usual rules of no balls, wides etc. The batting team can lose 2 wickets at the most (there is no single man batting). The team scoring more runs in this super over obviously wins; but if scored runs are the same, number of wickets lost are counted, then the team scoring more number of sixes (including the main innings plus this super over) wins; if this also means a tie, then the total number of 4s....etc. The team batting 2nd in the main match will bat first in the super over.

So, WI batted first in the super over. Gayle and Marshall opened the innings. Gayle hit the first ball for a SIX, the 2nd ball was a mishit and Marshall was runout while taking the 2nd run, Gayle retained the strike however. 3rd and 4th deliveries from Vettori also went for 6, the fifth one was a 4 and Gayle and chanderpaul collected 2 runs off the last ball resulting a total of 25 runs.

Sulieman Benn was the chosen bowler for WI. Oram hit the first ball for a SIX. They took 2 byes from the 2nd one and in the 3rd ball, Oram was out (caught). So, NZ needed 18 off the last 3 deliveries. The equation was straight forward, NZ needed 3 SIXes off 3 deliveries. At this moment, Benn bowled a chest high full toss no-ball which Ross Taylot hit for SIX. So, 7 runs were scored as a Christmas gift. 10 needed, 3 balls to go. Taylor was bowled in the 4th delivery and Gayle finally could smile.

unfortunately the west indies are a example of how 20-20 ruins a infrastructure. If you look at the last two tours the only people stepping up in batting are gayle, chanderpaul and sarwan. on occasion maybe someone else. everyone needs to be step up in the batting department. if they had better domestic ODI cricket rather than this stanford 20-20 they would be better. they had some much potential after the australia tour and they threw that away.
