A number seven who's played four games guided the tail through 220 runs and fell seven runs short of winning the game, against a nearly-full strength NZ attack. Not your most impressive victory.

Yeah, after I posted that you made a nice save. At the time it wasn't looking particularly promising.

And the more experienced members on your team fell to pieces. Not impressive for Australia either.

Also, love how Australia still can't win at the postage stamp.

And Stoinis only has an average of under 30 in List A matches. Australia should have been bowled out for under 200 comfortably, especially after being down 6 for 67.

We had trouble dismissing one player. The rest of the Aussie team collapsed like a house of cards. Stoinis was impressive and his teammates ought to be embarrassed.

Also rich given we got the winning total from fucking Jimmy Neesham, Neil Broom and Trent Boult.

One guy had the game of his life (and truly, it was a performance that deserved a win, as now it'll go by the wayside) and we're pathetic?

The bowlers were poor towards the end but I wouldn't question the tactics New Zealand employed at all. Before the first ball I was walking around the concourse and everyone I had a chat to agreed that you'd do well to defend 300, and I think even Australia thought that when they won the toss.

Stoinis played an innings he never should have had to play in the first place is the more realistic headline.

Go find the averages for Neesham and Broom and come back to me.

I also happened to see that a Rose Bowl ODI is free entry late Feb. Welp, I'm there.

It's annoying I forgot so quickly how easy it was to become a petty winner.
