First game of the series is under way. It would be interesting to see how NZ do without their key players Taylor, Southee and Vettori.

http://oi46.tinypic.com/bs6b.jpg
For SA, Q.De Kock (http://www.espncricinfo.com/south-africa-v-new-zealand-2012/content/player/379143.html) gets the SA T20 cap in this game.

I think he will be a top wk batsman for SA in the upcoming years. He should also make Test debut ASAP(would have been perfect in this series but he wasn#t picked) as i think AB de Villiers keeping is not int standard, specially in TEST!!!!


BTW Q.De Kock's B'day is on the 17th December. born a day after Anamul :) Coincidently, both are top order batsman and a wk :D

And many were complaining how we put Anamul in too early. Even though SA is 1 of the top teams, they've decided to start having him in the national side already. Look for Chand of India and Babar of Pakistan to also feature in their respective countries soon as well.

TBH, SA have no option. it seems their wk pipeline is very poor that a part timer like ABD have to keep even in test.

Well we have a weak pipeline of top order batsmen which is why Anamul got in earlier than expected and didn't have to wait as long as Mominul. If a young promising player is there and there aren't better options, then why go with the "experienced" players if they already proved they aren't very good. This is the point people were trying to make with Anamul and so far Anamul is proving to be the best of our other top order batsmen despite having some technical issues.

New Zealand are minnows now and are clearly declining, won't be surprised if Bangladesh beat them in the Test and ODI series when they meet eachother next year. Saw the brief highlights of that match and they were playing like Kenya.

I made a pole a few weeks back on who is the most promising youngster and one of them included De Kock and boy he's some talent. But Anamul Haque in my opinion is better than him mind you he too can wicket-keep.

Gowza

TBH, SA have no option. it seems their wk pipeline is very poor that a part timer like ABD have to keep even in test.

i don't know about the quality of keeping but SA do have a couple of keepers who have pretty good FC batting averages. as far as de kock goes apparently he doesn't keep for his province side when they are full strength, but he also apparently has a lot of talent with the gloves as he does with the bat so he could be someone really special if it all develops along well. but i'm sure SA have good quality glovemen, they also have decent keeper batsmen (a couple that average in the 40s) so i don't think SA have a poor keeper pipeline, i think at the time boucher had to leave they didn't want to lose any batting strength and AB keeps in ODIs and bats well so they figured they'd give him ago with that role in tests so that they already have someone experienced in there and someone who is proven quality batsman.

i don't think they were ready to bring de kock into the side, at least not the test team. i think they've giving him ago in the shorter formats to see where he's at, if he can handle it and if he's ready.

also when is luke ronchi eligible for NZ selection? he's not the best with the gloves but they really could use his batting ability, not as consistent as gjuys like flower, gilchrist, dhoni etc but when he's onsong he scores lots of runs fast, even in test cricket, a genuine match winner with the bat on his day and like gilly he can change a test match within a matter of 30 minutes.

NZ might perform like kenya but the talent is much higher. i guess they're in a similar situation to BD, the talent is there but the consistent performance is not.

Ronchi was a machine years back when he played in Australia. Consistency is his worst enemy. He was in poor form for a while and im happy for him that he moved to NZ to keep his playing career alive. As you said he is that type of batsmen that can take the game away from you.

I think he is regaining his lost form which is good to see. Made back to back centuries in the same match 2 days ago in the Plunket Shield. Both centuries were at a 90+ strike rate :applause: One of them was at a strike rate of 120 :eek:

Did you see this horrible show? Really cricket was put to shame by Black Caps. Some idiot commented in cricinfo that Bangladesh is wrongly put in top of NZ and look how they performed. It shows that how much they are depended on McCullum. He fails, the whole team fails. Even with half the RSA team filled with debutants, they remained outplayed in every area. Fielding was so eye-soaring to watch.

New Zealand are minnows now and one of those declining teams, won't be surprised if we beat them in the ODI and Test series next year, we know how seductive they are too slow spin bowlers. They are going to get crushed in the coming test series. If they most likely lose all the 3 ODI matches against South Africa and Bangladesh for once beat Pakistan in that one-off ODI game then Bangladesh stay even more clear of New Zealand in the ODI rankings.

They have somehow beat AUS and SL in the past year, granted beating SL isn't much of an achievement these days. Unless and until we either win a couple of tests or beat NZ in a series, we have no right to criticize their team apart from in jest.

We seem to forget that NZ beat Australia last year and recently beat Sri Lanka so everyone knows they can go neck and neck with the top teams in world cricket. Today they just had a bad day and Philander was bowling really well with the balling whipping from side to side. Also lets not forget Australia were rolled for 47 against South Africa as well and were even at one stage on 9/21. Even though Australia played that badly in one innings it doesnt tarnish the fact that they are still one of the best test teams going around in world cricket.

for a side that has been playing test for 100 odd years, to make 45 in 2013 is unbelievable. we never made 45 even our first few tests did we? I an't wait to have them for tests this years, stick to them so bad! stick to rugby mate!!

Mathematically the more matches you play the more chances you have in getting bundled out for a low score ala Australia. Australia throughout the course of history has played 744 test matches whereas Bangladesh have played 73 test matches. So i think its fair to say its acceptable for Australia to be bundled out for a low score once in a hundred years.

Proteas for cricket.

When South Africa returned to cricket, I used to read Bangladesh Observer at that time and their Headlines used the term whenever there was news about their matches. Since then I have found out mostly through cricinfo that they use Proteas for the team.

But, I guess Cronje, GRHSIP, wouldn't have mind although it is considered racist for some blokes.

This Kiwi team is probably considerably worse than us. No Taylor, vettori, Southee. But even with those guys they'd lose by an innings in SA most of the time.

taylor is the main loss, easily their best batsman, i'm not sure southee is really any better than the other pacers they have on the scene, ryder and vettori are obviously a bit of a loss to but vettori isn't the spinner he use to be so really not as big of a loss as people might think imo.

Can't believe this New Zealand team with a much much smaller population plays more than twice the amount of Cricket compared to us. BCB needs to do something to get us more and more matches even if its against associate teams. This New Zealand team is simply going downhill!

Good match. This upset win by #9 over #1 changed drastically on ODI raking table; India beating England, Lankan beating Ausies, all favoured India to go back to #1 again. Top teams are all very closed to each other now.
I wish SL could rank up more before we meet them with high stake of rank points.

Spiderman
January 19, 2013, 01:47 PM
These ranking tables are pointless because the matches are unevenly distributed with bottom teams playing less than half the top teams. There's no chance for us to climb up, I think we should break away from ICC and form a a whole new council i.e. WCC where many nations can play Cricket full time. ICC is just an organisation and restricting Cricket to a 'small' club of 8 countries.
