Chappell-Hadlee Series (Australia-New Zealand)

I can't believe no one has started a thread for this!

McGrath stayed home! Gilchrist wanted to! Vettori will be the captain! Australia are still overwhelming favorites!


(current odds, for entertainment purposes only!)

Australia 1.33
New Zealand 3.25

I think the question is not who will win, but by what margin.

I don't think it'll be a whitewash for the Aussies, but I don't expect NZ to win more than one match either.

I'm tipping a close 3-0, or 2-1 Series.

Resting McGrath isnt a great idea, could come back to bite us on the arse.

Not unusual

He either makes runs, or goes out

Australia's over-confident. I'm predicting 2-1 to New Zealand.

I must say, I'm delighted Vettori is captain. I've been saying he should be captain for a good while now.

Vettori was superb, and Australia only made it to 252, a low number for them.

We'll see how it goes, but it seems that since they don't have to face McGrath, New Zealand at least have a decent chance.

New Zealand is making the West Indies look good.

They nearly gave your typical Melbourne crowd a run for there money aye?

Didn't watch the game sadly, but it sounds like the NZ side were very rusty... Really hoping for a much better effort in Wellington.

I couldn't stand to watch at about 3/19 ... thought we'd be gone for fifty when I heard we were 6/33.

Utterly humiliating.

Aussies !!!!!!

Glad to see the NZCB are taking action against the crowd and putting player safety first. Hope it works and stops those fools who think it is okay to throw stuff. (Everywhere)
