I was going to a post on the aftermaths of NZ and India and share my sorrows with fellow Kiwi lovers. But I've had a long day and just got a chance to sit in front of my computer...only to find out that India is playing Sri Lanka already! I swear, the 2nd ODI was only just yesterday!
Anyway, NZ was a disgrace. They were worse than awful. I saw them batting and had to switch off the t.v. to stop myself from uttering any more obscenities. There highest score was 25..scored by non other than Daniel Vettori. Their highest wicket taker was also a certain Daniel Vettori. Enough is enough. Dan must hang up his boots till his team figures out what exactly their problem is. Baz has become a T20 specialist, Ryder is the new sumo wrestler on the rise and Rossy is just plain shit! These are moments when I need to be reminded why I like the Kiwis so much. Someone? Anyone?
BTW, India only won because the Kiwis wanted to go home. Their batting was equally horrific, as their 156 runs from 40.3 overs will tell you. This seems to be becoming a trend. With T20 around, ODI's have become Tests and Tests have become some late night talk show. Michael Atherton has been officially made host, after his mind numbingly boring work at the Ashes. Catch it live starting next May.
