It seems churlish to whine after winning, but fuck it.

Also what the HELL has happened to Tim Southee?

He's gone south, as his name always suggested he might.

A very good result today, and the Chappell-Hadlee is back on the right side of the ditch. What a performance by Trent Boult with the ball, and by Ross Taylor to equal the most ODI tonnes for New Zealand. We've now won our last eight home ODI series.

Can't wait for all the Aussie wingeing. Hey fuckers, no use pointing out who wasn't in the team - you could have selected them if you wanted to, but you didn't, and whether the result would've been any different is a matter of conjecture (especially as I'd say Stoinis's form right now puts him ahead of Wade or either Marsh). New Zealand's absences, both in the last series and this one, have on the other hand been through injury or retirement. Not shabby for a team undergoing major generational change in its middle order.

I dare say I can speak for both myself and Vlad when I say we're happy about the result!

Warner and Smith can't bat in New Zealand so who really cares?

Would've been nice to put a dent in their averages.

Afghanistan's domestic competitions have been granted first class and list A status.

In other great news, the new ICC chief wants to expand cricket. Whether it happens remains to be seen, but fuck I would love if it did

The most exciting thing about cricket in the future would be the introduction/rise of new countries. If you have an opportunity to grow the game, then just bloody grow it.

It shits me that it hasn't already been happening for years. I really hope it does from now on.

Seriously, the sluggishness of cricket as an institution to grow and expand is baffling. Ireland should have been playing Tests a decade ago, for example.

Now it seems that Ireland will get the chance soon, but you can mount an argument that despite gaining domestic first-class status, their side has declined in the past few years.

Yep, needed more support when they were surging to ensure they could maintain it and bring in a new generation.
