    Looks like a potent bowling attack. Might pay to bowl first if we can help it.

    Remember we picked Chapman on the back of plenty of T20 runs at home? Well, he flopped. Phillips has been tearing up on slow T20 pitches all year in the CPL and got two fifties this tour in the T20's for NZA, flopped for BC's.

    11 match winning streak v PAK in ODI's. Our T20 team is just pretty weak. Glad Milne didn't make the ODI squad... just another Anderson.

    In that he is always injured?
    Was he injured for the last t20 or just rested?

    Ferguson is more reliable than Milne but goes for 5 more runs every ten overs of bowling

    Skill testing question for anyone without googling
    Who has the better odi sr out of the two of them ?

    That's more like it.

    "Pakistan in ODIs in 2018:

    Played NZ 6 times, lost all 6
    Played India 2 times, lost 2
    Played Bangladesh 1 time and lost"

    They're like the opposite to us. I'd rather be good at ODI's than T20 though...

    Lots of positives to take from this game...

    Munro got a start
    Ross and Kane and Latham (our engine room and one of the better ones in the world came through)
    The tail wagged. We were 7 for 210 and made it to 265. I can't remember the last time that happened. First time Southee has scored a twenty in a while.

    Nicholls and Worker didn't get starts and will want to do better in the next game(s).

    Exactly why I wasn't a fan of breaking up the Kane-Ross-Latham order for Young. Sure, Worker failed... but it did allow our best to fire and bat most of the innings. Worker certainly needs a big final two matches to keep in contention.

    Not sure who is the next in line really.

    New kit...

    The win was more of a relief than anything else, would've been a bit of a shocker if we had lost our first 4 matches on tour, even though 3 were only 20/20s, now we can go into the 2nd ODI with some decent confidence.

    The only down side to that game was Hafeez still gets away with chucking.

    Half the team barely featured in the T20's, doubt there was a confidence issue.

    "Henry Nicholls has had an Interesting year in ODI Cricket.

    50, 0, 52*, 1, 0, 1, 0, 13*, 55, 0.

    Average of 21.50 in 10 Innings, 3 Fifties and 4 Ducks."

    They seemed to go easy on Nicholls in all formats. Way harder on guys like Neesham.

    My observation is that they go by career average quite a bit. Nicholls averages 31 which is still ok. Neesham ended up with 27 and anything less than 30 gets you dropped.

    If Nicholls fails in the next two games he will go below 30 as well and his place will come into question.

    I would replace him with Santner.

    yeah i saw on the news that Taylor signalled it to the umpires and the pakis spat the dummy and complained

    I think they see Worker as emergency cover . Somehow they forsee a low probability he will be needed in the world cup and as such they are chilled about how many runs he scores.

    At least he chewed up 8 balls before getting out. He had a 13 run partnership for the 1st wicket last night. Sometimes as a number three I just wanted my openers to at least last the first two overs and Worker did that.

    Yep. They were saying it is not in the spirit of the game. Yet cheating is? Okay buddy. The guy has been banned before for chucking. It ain't like this is new.

    I reckon Ross has faced enough chuckers in his day to be able to spot something off with an action, better than umpires. Hafeez should not be allowed to bowl, simple. How many times can one get banned ffs? He's going to revert during games.

    Chuckers are hard to face because they come on at an awkward speed off the pitch

    Just a comment

    Todd Astle, come on man. I can understand fast bowlers going down often, but a lightweight spinner? Ah well, chance for Ish.

    lol, apart from the collar it's almost identical. Black and white is better than black and silver.

    Don’t leg spinners rotate their planted leg to get more turn? Those repeated rotational forces could be quite significant

    Somerville called up to replace Astle

    Some off spinner kiwi born who played for new south wales

    Larsen reckons he has good control & variation, also the height to get that added bounce, bats well too... be interesting to see how he goes.
