So have the Black Caps said anything about Milne? Any indication if he is going to play tomorrow?

He's out for both the Dunedin games but might possibly play in Wellington.

He's a white, wealthy Australian male. You're being far too kind to him.

And of course the thing that makes Warner much worse than all the other racist Australian dickheads is that he is really, really genuinely stupidly thick to go along with it. He's the complete package really.

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.

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.

Are you guys saying that Ross Taylor is actually thick or that he just makes poor decisions on the field?

He seems like a decent enough guy from the interviews i've seen, I don't know where this retarded stuff is coming from

I don't have my sky so I can't sync it.

If you listen straight off the iheart website on your computer it's only slightly ahead of the TV so it's alright to listen to without adjustment.

e. if you really want i think you can load it in VLC and adjust it to be in sync on using that

Yeah he's been absolute quality. I wanted Neesham or BJ as I thought they were slightly better and, especially Neesham, will be around for a while. Happy to be wrong ☺

Have to say that I would be leaning towards Mills and Vettori to join Southee and Boult as our starting attack Vs Sri Lanka

I'd agree except i'd probably have Mccleneghan instead of Boult for that raw wicket taking power.

Yeah I didn't like her when she was just on The Cricket Show and I sure as hell don't like her more after all these inane cutaway interviews saturating the coverage.

I would include pushing for less crap and more insight to be part of a sport broadcasters role especially in relation to their own contribution. She fails completely on that measure. Her segments are the worst part of the cricket coverage in New Zealand hands down.

She is just doing her job man. Less crap and more insight is kind of a lost cause when it comes to sports coverage the world over anyway. A perfectly competent presenter doing fluff pieces is hardly the worst offender in that area.

Doull loving sucks rear end. He talks endlessly about poo poo he doesn't know dick about and he constantly fucks up the most important part of being a cricket commentator; calling the cricket.

He's on TV, it's much less important to actually call the cricket when the viewer can see what's going on.

This is so poo poo. Is it just because they want to try and encourage people to go to the non-Australia matches rather than watching at home or is it general Nine fuckery? There's something like 42 matches before the finals begin and they're showing a total of 10. Surely utilise Gem for some of the non-Australian matches.

They probably just didn't want to pay for the rights to all those matches.

ireland have currently scored 100 more runs than the West Indies had until this point - they've consistently been around 6.5 runs an over at all points while the West Indies didn't score at all between 10 and 35, but then west mental at the end.

You can tell they don't care with that drop

I don't know, that was the captain, he seemed mad with himself. If anyone in the team cares it should be the captain at least

IceAgeComing posted:

is there a reason bar "We need an India-Pakistan game!!!" that they don't go for a four groups of four thing? They did it in 2007 and that was a very bad tournament, but that was for reasons other than the structure (although the super 8s are lovely)

Funnily enough I think the reason for the current tournament's structure is so that every team was guaranteed 6 games at least. And now the minnows are being removed because there are too many games in the tournament? how does that work, just change up the structure.

Some days including weekends will have 2 games but yeah there really should be 2 every day, especially the games involving the minnows.

Anyone know what Ross Taylor and Brendon McCullum have averaged the past like, 5 games? I don't remember either of them making a mark, both of them are out for another sad score in this game too.

Brendon averaged 39 in the SL series before the World Cup

I would really like to think that the reason this is happening is because no-one is bothering. Guess we'll find out when we play Australia.

Yeah, small totals mess with the mind a bit and cause a bit of batting silliness. Not that there was ever any chance they wouldn't chase it down

You'll get a decent amount of wickets, Mushfiqur got some runs and one of them will probably get man of the match bonus, you'll get some good points.
