3 T20, 3 ODI, 3 Test. I like this fixture. It's balanced, though I'd prefer 5 ODIs, but with 3 T20s it makes sense not to have those 2 extra games. This should be a good series. SA is the obvious favorite, and they are also the chockers. And you can never call off NZ.

Yeeeeah that way you will have no one to support. Everyone's trashed us some way or the other.

If any thing NZ's trashed us the most.

I hate NZ broadcast. I mean it's good quality and everything, and I like the fact that they stuck with the old school score-bar thingi, but their on field mic are way too loud, just as loud as the commies! And their commies, as always, SO BAISED!

Levi! New beast in making! 100 from 45! SR 222, 12 6s!! That's how you bat in T20. Fastest T20 ton, with most amount of 6s. Gayle Jr!

Now he can easily beat Gayle/McCullum's tie top score! 17 runs away.

Southee to Levi, 1 run, there it is, the fastest ever Twenty20 International hundred from Richard Levi! What a maiden hundred to make for your country, drove a full ball outside off into the deep and shrieked in delight, kissed the badge and beamed a grin as wide as the Antarctic Ocean

When Guptil was batting, the biased NZ commies were talking about him playing in the MLB. syyaahryte! With those skinny hands he won't even make the Tripple-A teams. Then Levi came to bat and I was laughing my butt off.

Only Gayle and Warner would have a shot. But Gayle can't run, or field, so he is out.

Ya NZ aren't on SA's level. The way I look at it is, Aus, SA, SL, Pak, England, and India are 1st tier teams while WI and NZ are 2nd tier teams, and to round it up, Zim and us are 3rd tier teams. And it shows in the ranking system. If you don't have 100 points, then you don't belong in the top tier.

They're a very good team in their own conditions but in the subcontinental conditions, it's a very different story. That's what really pulls them down at the end. If they can learn how to play spin better on low and slow tracks, they could become a good team.

That they do, my friend, that they most certainly do. Most of all teams they just love to take us down, which is OK, and really a little flattering. We have a somewhat brotherly relationship, always giving each other a hard time but attacks from outside on one or the other tend to bring us together to support the other. You will of course find some who don't share that sense of camerarderie but they are very much in the minority. Overall we have a grudging respect for the other. Our relationship with the English is similar.

True, no doubt, but for a nation of only 4.5 million they're not too shabby really. Where they really excel is in Rugby Union, and they are every bit our equal at that. One or other of us is almost always the top team in the world. Occasionally the South Africans or English put together a team to challenge that but it's not all that common. Tough as nails the Kiwis are as a people, and we respect that.

^ spoke too soon!
Billy Doctrove stays play will start at 10.30 am. They were concerned about the dew on the outfield. Aleem Dar says they are putting the players' safety first. So basically a bunch of trees bordering the ground cast a shadow on one part of the Oval, and prevented the sun from doing its thing and dry the dew. Well the outfield can't be wetter than it was last morning. Surely.

Steyn to Martin, 5 runs, Martin scores a five! He pushes the ball in front of point and runs a risky run, there would have been a run out had Petersen hit at the non-striker's end, Martin was miles out. But the throw missed, and there was no one backing up

Chris Gayle can hit 100's of sixes in a year but can he guarantee a 5, well Chris Martin can.

Dilscoop
March 8, 2012, 04:14 PM
^ What if the fielder was really powerful/dumb enough to fire a throw that went flat/flying over the rope? Would that be 7 runs? Never gonna happen but what if it did?

That'd also raise quite about "spot fixing" lawl.
