I feel like the one area where minnows should be competitive is in their fielding but they always let themselves down in that department.

Do any of you know if there's any way to watch these warm ups?

The Australian ones are allegedly being broadcast, but the New Zealand ones aren't. Cricvid will probably have the ones that they are broadcasting on, and I'd imagine that Sky will have them on in the UK. Although quite why they aren't able to broadcast these warmups when they were able to broadcast all of the warm up games for the World T20 (which were held during the first round of the competition!) I'll never know...

Whoever designed the graphics package for this needs to be shot, or at least reminded that we are in 2015 and that widescreen is a thing

Watching the score updates for the NZ-SA Match assumed the pitch must be a belter. Thinking NZ probably needed another 20 or so runs. Check the score just now SA is 32/4 in reply.

Possibly my least favourite but that's ok, we cool.

Mine would be the one from around 1985-88, predominantly yellow and a Footscray-style green hoop around the middle. Or just when it was still mostly whites in 78-79 but with green and yellow stripes on the shoulders.

Just got back from the NZ v SA match (left when it became apparent Duminy was just going to have an open net rather than attempt to chase). We loving thrashed them. The batsmen all looked pretty good, Taylor got out just before the powerplay which probably set us back by 30-40 in the end, but it didn't matter since Boult scythed through the top order. Steyn didn't bowl and Amla didn't bat but we thrashed them all the same.

SL losing to Zim.

Yeah, the hoops were pretty good (and retro kits of it get released on occasions), the one that followed it with the script on the front wasn't bad either. From 2000 onwards when competition templates were done away with, one day uniforms have been pretty blah.

Didn't there used to be a thing where a bowler got 6 balls to hit the stumps the most.

Or did I make that up.
