    Another fantastic over from Mascerenas - 4 sixes in a row - and it isn't looking toooooo bad. I'm reckoning that 200 is a reasonable score for these games, and we're not going to be a million miles off, hopefully.

    Just too many wickets lost to prevent a really good score.

    May be hard to defend

    Nice hitting from Dimitri Jayasuriya.

    OK, so much for my less than 180 ramblings; England seem to be dishing out a thrashing.

    Which is great, obviously.

    At the moment the only thrashing being dealt is by Oram. We could lose this...

    EDIT: It should be all right. NZ require more than I thought they did.

    I'm not sure this was really a thrashing - 90% of the difference was the Mascerenas over. This is going to be a competitive series.

    We won? Fabbo. Cairns retired at just the wrong time (or right time for England!) - he's the sort of player who'd have been perfect for 20/20.

    It will be a competitive series, but to be fair, it never looked like NZ were going to reach our total. Pietersen played well and everyone chipped in with runs.

    It was a good team performance and saying 90% of the difference was the Mascerenas over is not really fair. It did change the game, but England still had to bowl and field well, which they did.

    Whoops, bit late to the party. I see we lost. Good.

    May as well reuse Tuesday's thread.

    I'd like to see a big score today from one of the openers.

    heh, I listened to about 10 minutes of this this morning, and it was the 10 minutes when we lost four wickets and I left it when Collingwood and Shah were both at the crease with no runs.

    I was delighted to hear that when radio 4 did a bulletin they'd scored 198 :D

    Are there any proper cricket grounds in New Zealand? These converted rugby pitches are freakish o_O

    Another comofrtable victory for England.

    Sidebottom, despite his silly name and the fact that he needs a haircut, was impressive yet again. Mustard has also played very well in both 20/20s.

    There are "proper" grounds - I guess they thought that using the rugby grounds for the 20/20 would a) share the love; and b) produce more "exciting" cricket - ie. more sixes!

    Col. Mustard has done well - I guess that telling him he'd make the test team *if* he played some blinders in the ODIs has galvanised him - nothing like a bit of competition!

    RE: Rugby pitches vs proper ricket grounds.

    The internal politics of New Zealand sport and the use of venues is the most ridiculous and petty political debacle ever.

    Also, I see we lost. Again. Thats good then.

    Sidebottom and Massiveanus killed us and I really don't think Peter Fulton is better at Twenty20 than Lou Vincent. Nathan Astle was on RadioSport on Friday morning really sticking it to the selectors for batting people out of position.

    Did you guys hears that a knife-wiedling African terrorist on a plane made both teams late getting up from Christchurch to Wellington?

    @ FL:

    The 2nd ODI and the first two tests will be played a cricket-only grounds, Seddon Park in Hamilton and the Basin Reserve in Wellington.

    Cairns is playing in the ICL for the Chandigarh Lions.
