Useless, I'll probably be in Wellington by then anyway - which kind of sucks because I don't know anyone in Wellington who'd like to get drunk and violent at the cricket...a shame really.

Oh cool, some Aussie vs NZ tests next year. Something interesting after the predicably boring West Indies and Pakistan tests here.

2 meter Peter, what a fucking idiot!!

He knew he got some bat on it but doesn't appeal. I thought cricket was a thinking mans game.

He deserves to be dropped for that alone let alone the fact he can't buy a run

There's 20 minutes before tea. Let's declare and have a bit of a bowl at the Windies to try and put a bit of pressure on them ...

West Indies 41/0 off 6 overs at tea

Jacob Oram is the most injury prone cricketer ever!

What a fucking joke this team is

5 fucking ducks on a placid pitch, surely it is time for someone else to get a go.

From having a strangle hold on the game after day 1 to be where we are now is bullshit

you know playing at home is meant to have some sort of advantage

you know the conditions and you have the home support

thats usually the case for all teams bar the black caps

the batting yesterday was friggin appalling

we always play this 50/50 style of batting were we are half attacking half defensive

or just dont know if we are arthur or martha

that reflects in our consistency, hot one day cold the other

we may have the talents physically but we are one of the weaker sides mentally

Quote from: Fran O\'Sullivan
The best thing about Finance Minister Bill English\'s latest Budget is that it does finally signal a much greater role for the private sector in the New Zealand economy. And another step along the way to extract this country from the political cul-de-sac in which Helen Clark\'s Labour Government parked us.

A bus ain't gonna help them Tof, no matter what its accoutrements are or how well appointed it is.

The soft cocks need to harden up and get in the nets and not stop until they are hurting.

This is part of the problem with Bond et al. Too much gym work developing muscles that don't need it whereas nets practice ensures your cricket muscles are being developed.

Go Richard Hadlee!
