Black Caps v Bangladesh



  • No problem with the weather today for the first ODI in Napier.

    Not a cloud in the sky and no wind at all currently.

    You have no idea how much you have made my day!! I didn't think these started until next week!

    Love and kisses to you bro! 🙂



  • @Hooroo and I think the innings break will be timed for the sun strike lol. They were talking about it on RS Breaky with Coney this morning.

    A lot riding on this series, hoping we see Kane and Guppy put the foot down - as both have been a bit sub-par for their level of talent/consistency.

    Still a number of questions to be answered too!

    • All rounders outside of CdG and Neesham - who makes it?
    • Spin (with all rounder overlap) Ish or Astle?
    • Does Southee pull a Kyle Mills and make the squad, only to not play a match at the WC?
    • Munro? yeah, nah? Seifert? ... or Nicholls?
    • Will Taylor snare another century? or run himself and half the team out?
    • Will the bangers go Bang!!?

    Juicy stuff!



  • How much will we learn about the guys on the bubble playing these guys? I expect the coach has more or less made up his mind already and Munro is in regardless. He's been a fixture for the last couple of years and it's probably too late to turn back now



  • Did Siefert make the squad for this series?



  • The squad for ease of reference:

    Kane Williamson (c) (Games 1 & 2)
    Todd Astle
    Trent Boult
    Colin de Grandhomme
    Lockie Ferguson
    Martin Guptill
    Matt Henry
    Tom Latham
    Colin Munro (Game 3)
    Jimmy Neesham
    Henry Nicholls
    Ross Taylor
    Mitchell Santner
    Tim Southee



  • @No-Quarter so one way or another they've seen enough of Seifert



  • @canefan I don't think he was ever a real contender. He's done pretty well in T20s this year, but Munro does well in T20s as well so I'd take that with a grain of salt.

    Edit - given it's 15 to the CWC, he actually probably is in with a good shot. I'd like to see more of him in ODIs first though.



  • When do they actually finalise the CWC squad? Is it after this series?

    Williamson, Astle, Boult, de Grandhomme, Ferguson, Guptill, Henry, Latham, Neesham, Nicholls, Taylor, Santner, Seifret, Sodhi & Southee is my CWC squad. If there is to be a bolter it will be Corey Anderson if he proves he is fit enough.



  • Did they move the pitch? Or put up a tarp? Or are we going to need a sunlight break again at village park?



  • Anything less than a 3-0 victory will be a massive disappointment.

    Nah, ah. That comment in the interview with JC was a theoretical along the lines of "wouldn't it be good if they could time the innings break to conincide with the sun strike". But I think the sun strike issue is likely to around 6.30pm when play in the second inings will be underway.



  • @shark maybe they should have tweaked the starting time then!



  • @shark bloody big crowd in Napier.......

    Satisfactory start after losing toss. 19/2mwith both openers gone. Some lovely shots by their number 3 as he is looking ominous

    Hopefully they get a decent score
    Not a lot to get out of only chasing 120..



  • Bang bang and all of a sudden they are 42/4

    Be lucky to reach 120..



  • 42/4, could be over before I get home.



  • @No-Quarter remember the Indians!!

    well, not that bangers have their batting quality but stranger things have happened!



  • Sun strike may not be an issue..



  • Henry and Boult are both real wicket takers at the top of the innings. That has to be our opening combo for the CWC, no respite particularly if the ball is nipping around a bit.
