If we were talking about Ross Taylor, who seems to either get single figures or a century, then I would understand. But Guptil just looks really sketchy opening; He usually takes a dozen balls to get off the mark, and then another dozen before he's got his eye in. Which is a lot of balls when you have a tendancy to just hang your bat out like that.

The highest 6th wicket partnership in all ODI's is 218 -- by Jayawardene and MS Dhoni!

It was great, because you went from "Holy poo poo, did you see that wicket, these athletes are in their prime and can land it on a loving penny! Woo!" to "Huh, it really is just spray and hope isn't it."

This was a diamond duck, no?

A platinum duck is first ball of the innings (so, basically Martin Guptill).

I quite like the pace of the world cup so far. Really liking there being a game each day, which gives me the opportunity to catch pretty much every match. If the tournament was more condensed, then what, we'd have more time in the schedule for IPL, an extra Ashes series each year, and maybe even a nine test match series between Australia and India?

batsmen should be made to keep batting with the bat they started with regardless of whether they break during an innings or not
