Having said that! Wooo hoooo! Time to Bangla-wash the Kiwis!
no, incomparable in my opinion.
looking back, that was very much a B side at best. roach, sammy, and bernard were there only decent players. and maybe one of their spinners, forgot. u need at least 7-8 first string players to even begin to consider it a "real" side. this NZ team has all first stringers, and the only guys missing are oram and styris (who are more than balanced by the absence of mash and tamim).
