I think zimbabwe start as favourites considering that is their home turf. But we all know NZ are more than a half decent ODI side, and will give zimboks a run for the money
 
Come On NZ, beat Zimbabwe in the Warmups atleast. BTW, I dont understand the logic between these 2 meeting, when they will face eac other anyway in the group stages?

Because this isn't a warmup for the Champions Trophy, it's the ODI leg of New Zealand's tour of England.
 
Its all about finances satifying the sponsors........does not matter how stupid the schedule looks

Now i understand :yk

This England-NZ affair is turning out to become A India-Lanka affair :asadrauf

What's more odd is that Pakistan are playing South Africa in a warmup on Monday, and then playing them again exactly a week later in the Champions Trophy!

The reason for that is that obviously England and New Zealand aren't available because they're taking part in their own series.

Root
Morgan
Buttler

I think it's fair to say that we have the most exciting middle order in the world. Throw in Cook & Trott and we look formidable. We'll thrash NZ even with the rubbish Dernbach playing.

And you have the most boring top order :))
It balances out to be ok

Nice to see you my Kiwi friend. Do you expect Guptill to thrash a century today? :))
 
I'll wait until Morgan walks out.

He's the one exciting guy to watch from their batting line-up, aside from which it's one-dimensional to the core.

Okay, Buttler has potential too.
 
Re: England v New Zealand | 1st ODI |31/5/13 | Lords - England Innings

Against the english bowling line-up?

Fat chance!

Kiwi claimed that Guptill was going to thrash our attack all round the park in the last test match. :))
 
If Root, Morgan and Buttler are the most exciting middle order in world cricket there's something really wrong...
 
NZ playing well.. disciplined bowling supported well by sharp fielding..
 
I agree.

But with KP, Morgan & Buttler Malaikan probably has a point.
Buttlers yet to do anything and he'll make way for KP. Isn't it funny how all their entertaining players aren't English xD

Buttler or Butler? Probably the latter.

In the meanwhile, the England batting is getting me bored. Damn, if only KP was playing :(

It's the former not the latter.

Both these guys are showing some intent especially against Franklin. Also you have to remember the way that England play in ODI's. The top 4 are sent in to score the majority of the runs at around 4/5 an over and then the likes of Morgan, Buttler etc. are sent in for the last 10/15 overs to boost them up to around 300. In the middle overs the scoreboard will tick over and not be very entertaining but it usually ends up being a fairly good tactic.

Root out, now time for a big innings from Trott and Morgan.
 
A few quick wickets should see England struggle to 200-220
 
England 123/3 after 28 overs...

maybe 220-30 here?
 
Trott gone, probably a good thing for england the way he was batting!
 
Mcullum and Ronchi to open later we could see either some fireworks or two very quick wickets.

Poor batting here, giving the game away.
 
Good to see New Zealand playing well every now and then.
 
England are our bunny side in ODIs but this side will be tough to beat in 3 games.
 
If England can get it up to 220 somehow...
 
Woakes just about keeping england afloat here....
 
230 would be a good score against a fragile NZ batting line up.

COME ON NZ!
 
We'll have to bat pretty poorly to lose it from here

If Finn and Broad were playing I'd still bet on ENG, but Jade is bowling so your boys will get about 70 runs off him alone.
 
Zimbabwe back to their usual self after beating BD, in the batting department.

Can NZ batsman score 228?

Weren't they bowling in NZ?.. If Ryder was playing we would have this game wrapped up in 35-40 overs.

Yes, but with the Kookaburra ball. Here they've got the Dukes instead.
Oh yeah, I forgot your bowlers need the 'right' ball to bowl well :))
Good bowlers should be able to bowl well regardless of which ball their using, if they can't they just aren't good bowlers now are they?

Hmmm.... they managed to bowl well with the Kookaburra in beating the Aussies 1-3 in the Ashes.

I don't know why they had that malaise in NZ. Could be a feeling of 'mission accomplished' after India, like when they didn't show up mentally at the WC after winning the Ashes.
 
What a brilliant exhibition of swing bowling, slip catching and wicket keeping all in one over.
