Vettori wasn't bowled walking across his stumps for a third ball duck, I assume rain has stopped play and I'm watching highlights from 5 years ago?

Southee is kind of a dunce, he actually had time to play himself in there. Mills, Southee, McLenaghan are plenty capable of smoking boundaries if they stick around, no need to force the issue.

Mills did quite well there I think we could have had a shot at the improbable victory if Southee wasn't such a doofus with the bat.

Is everyone excited for the England-India game, which will decide which team gets to play three more ODIs against Australia?

Also when did they gently caress up the cricinfo website and make it ugly as poo poo?

The tri series final is a one off isn't it? I actually don't mind this format. Certainly better than playing 1 team 5 or 7 times in a row.

these things are usually best of three

If it is a one-off, then that's good. I agree that its better than a tri-series: although I could have done with it not being the two teams that England have played against the last two years and are going to play against next year...

It's definitely a one off final this time around but I agree. It would have been cool if NZ had hosted England and India and Aus hosted the Lankans and someone else, alas, they are not top tier teams.

Taylor's loving gently caress up face, lol

I had hoped he'd have a great career, but I reckon he wont. Lovely technique, but Taylor self destructs on the field like Ryder does off it.

Well he averages over 40 in both forms of the game so i'd say he's doing alright for himself so far.
