game starts - 2130pm uk time

Australia will be huge favourites to win series 3-0 like they did on last visit. please place updates on here. :-D
 
Bit nervous about this game...the Kiwis are under the pump and look like they're ripe for a hammering - that's what makes me nervous.
 
aussies are on a roll @ mo... i can see aussies hammering kiwis here!
 
I never count my chickens until the eggshell's just about cracked and I can see their little heads poking out. Too much can happen in Test cricket. :)
 
new zealand will compete for 2/3 days and then aussies overall power will take over, if wickets a green seamer match will end in 3 days.

however in test cricket u never know like u said...!
 
NZ v Aus 1st test @ Christchurch

Aussies win the toss and put the Kiwis in. Fleming and Cumming open
I know lots dont care as Ind v Pak is more i important than this.
 
Bret Lee 12th man - wow .

he sould change nationalaity to pakistan - i am sure he will get a place in the squad :eek:D :eek:D :eek:D :eek:D :eek:D :eek:D
 
Marshall's gutted it out well. Took some rough blows on the arm with Gillespie peppering him with a few short ones, but he's shown excellent technique and mental strength - and just smashed Shane Warne for a straight six an over ago.

Cumming's looked good as well - nice way to start your career against the no.1 test team.

139/1 right now.
 
wicket looks a good one for batting, new zealand batted negatively for 1st part off day and then increased scoring as day went on.
 
Excellent stuff from unknown batsman. Great application by starting slow and speeding up. End result is 1 fifty 1 century and a excellent score against the best in the world. Something pak should learn from. Pak would have been 250 all out at tea.

Worry about the Craps is that they only seem to perform when completely written off. There were expectations in the ODIs, and they choked BIG TIME... now they've done well.

Hamish Marshall looks like a true class player. Cumming - suspect against raw pace as he showed against Lee, but decent looking against McGrath/Dizzy/Kasper on a flatter wicket. Of course, given his dismissal, I'd say he has John Bracewell's brain capacity.

hehehe apparently nething that isnt dhum shoom dhamaka is negative cricket

NZ got thrashed in the ODI's. they were merely being careful. Not negative.. u shud use that word mpre appropriately. itll make more sense. they almost scored @ 3 an over by the end against the best bowling attack in the world currently
 
latest on day 2 --> New Zealand 275/3 (98.0 ov)
 
386/5 - Astle getting stuck into McGrath.

Aussies for once not having the best of luck with the umpires.Warne having a valid appeal turned down by FatBoy Shep off McCullum just now.
 
aus 75/2
Langer Hayden GONE

can NZ beat these guys...!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
 
close off day 2

NZ - 433 ALL OUT

Aus - 141/3

new zealand on top here
 
What did I tell you Amjid? I told you I had a feeling about this mate...but still, it's only the second day. Haydo and Langer haven't been involved in the team recently. Ponting, Clarke and Katich need to stand up big here.
 
It is amazing to think Gillespie may be dropped from the next game! It seems if he doesn't come up with the goods he may indeed be replaced by Brett Lee. Over the past couple of months Gillespie has strangely lost a bit of zip and hasn't looked like getting wickets.

I thought Lee should have played this test. He looks a much improved bowler and its time to give him another go in tests. He really troubled the Kiwis with his pace in the odis and that would have left a scar.

Also, on pitches that don't have much for the bowlers it is someone like Lee with that extra pace you can rely on to get breakthroughs even if he is a tad expensive. The Mcgrath, Kasper and Gillespie combo just looks a little one d.

OZGOD, i told you... ok match didnt finish until 4th day but new zealand competed for 1 inns as per usual then aussies went right... we need a day off 2 do some surfing or have a barbie so will slip from 1st gear to 5th and hammer them....

and so they did
 
We let ourselves down - Fleming

New Zealand captain Stephen Fleming said his players had repeated recent failings by going down to a heavy four-day defeat against Australia.

Fleming said: "We let ourselves down. Day four got us again through poor batsmanship and lack of application.

"We need to take the game by the scruff of the neck. At the moment we pinch the scruff of the neck and let it go."

His opposite number Ricky Ponting said his team were "pretty proud" of what they had achieved in Christchurch.

Ponting said: "Coming here today the game was even, to think that it's over and done with now is pretty remarkable.

"It is very satisfying, I think all the guys know what we've just achieved.

"It's not just another Test match win, it's something we've done in a slightly different way."

Australia had conceded a first innings lead, albeit of one run, before New Zealand edged to 9-0 in their second innings following three days of even cricket.

But on Sunday, the Black Caps were skittled for just 131, with Shane Warne taking 5-39.

It contrasted sharply with New Zealand's first innings, when they had been 330-3 at one stage before registering 433 all out.
 
Once again the Aussies crush everyone in their path. Eng will be next

Hamish Marshall looks like a true class player. Cumming - suspect against raw pace as he showed against Lee, but decent looking against McGrath/Dizzy/Kasper on a flatter wicket. Of course, given his dismissal, I'd say he has John Bracewell's brain capacity.

Is that you mate? Geez you get around the place. :-D
