New Zealand heard us

They tried guys. They won against Sri Lanka to give the Saffers a chance. We messed it up big time.

Somebody scored 74 runs off 58 balls and gave Ryder the credit. The real Jesse was sitting down and chilling under the sun.

See?

Dan was impressive with both the ball and the bat. As is customary of him in this current Kiwi side. I wonder how many M-O-M awards Dan has. Hopefully enough to buy a new team :P.

Although some of the bowlers showed up today as well. Other than 007. More like 00 fullstop. The Kiwis need to find a new fast bowler. Seriously. It's high time.

Dilshan nearly killed their chances, as he is the lone Lankan assassin. Jayawardene wanted in on the action but couldn't save the match. Koolboy Kula also contributed. I was saddened by Kandambi's failure however. He should always score big. Just as a birth-right kind of thing.

I am really sorry I didn't wake up at 3am to watch this match. I haven't watched a brilliant NZ performance in a long time. I just hope they do the same on Tuesday to avenge South Africa. If they do, I'll write something nice about Ryder. I promise!

I am so proud of them, I knew they had it in them. Tuesday is the big game, they should humiliate Strauss.

Sadly Ryder won't be playing the match!

Hoping to see a good match!

Is there anyway by which NZ loose the match and still go to the semis? i mean them loosing by a small margin like 1-2 runs so that their net run rate will go above SL's ..that should be fun! :D

Does Jesse's moustache creep anyone else out? It like a cross between Hitler & some creepy old man. *shudders*

They rock! They always did.

Aditya, the injury list keeps on growing longer and longer. What is going on with these cricketers?

Es, Ryder's face gives me the creeps. Check out the mugshot...he looks like a serial killer!

New Zealand did not hear you! If the Sri Lankans had made 13 fewer runs, the Lankans would have been on a plane home! They just let those tailenders keep hitting boundaries.

Krish, it's not NZ's job to calculate the game to perfection so Saffers can screw up miserably and go through anyway :P.
