New Zealand's South African Safari Thread

Last Friday New Zealand began my 2nd favourite tour on the ICC 5 year calandar. New Zealand in South Africa.

The series itenery is as follows:

October 2005
Fri 14 (D/N) v South Africa A Willowmoore Park, Benoni
Sun 16 v South Africa A Sedgars Park, Potchefstroom
Fri 21 (D/N) PRO20 Wanderers, Johannesburg
Sun 23 1st ODI Goodyear Park, Bloemfontein
Fri 28 (D/N) 2nd ODI Newlands, Cape Town
Sun 30 3rd ODI St George’s Park, Port Elizabeth
November 2005
Fri 04 (D/N) 4th ODI Kingsmead, Durban
Sun 06 5th ODI SuperSport Park, Centurion

A three match test series was planned to follow however, the ICC in it's infinite wisdom decided to play the ICC Super Series instead, causing the test portion of this series to be played in April/May next year. Somthing too look foward too.

South Africa will be keen to erase all memories from their last encounter with New Zealand in South Africa, as well as the 4-1 humiliation they suffered on New Zealand soil the following year.

New Zealand will want to continue to consolidate their reputation as the worlds greatest ODI nation with Shane Bond, Jacob Oram and Daneil Vettori all returning from various injuries over the past few months.

It all shapes up to 6 very sleepless nights for this here New Zealander, and one great series.

Discuss.

Shakey start for NZ.

Aside from McMillan's gallant century, Adams' whackfest at the end and Bond's economical spell of bowling there isn't a great deal of comfort to take from this. :S

Benoni is a very small ground, so it is dissapointing a few more boundaries were hit.

If we overlook the fact half our top and middle order collapsed (a very large point to overlook) we did pretty okay.

Flem's century would have been just . Kyle Mills (unfourtunetly) played himself into the team for the 20/20 and McCullum consolidating his position as the worlds best keeper/batsman.

Bond takes 5 wickets in a little over 5 overs. Bond is dangerous. Consider yourself warned South Africa. Astle and Adams bowled two economical spells as well.

I'm glad Flem is finally using Astle as a first string bowling option - it is after all what he was picked in this side to do!

I'm confident for Friday.

Those were 2 fairly comprehensive victories. I don't think the first one was as close as the final score indicated.

Looking ahead, I'm a little curious about how the returning Super Series players will perform. You'd think that there would be a bit of a letdown after participating in something like that.

I think it will affect Pollock and Kallis moreso than Smith and Vettori.

Pollock & Kallis' form was pretty horrendous - and with a fairly frenzied rush back to South Africa for Friday (20 hour transit minimum plus a day or so for time adjustment) I don't quite know where they will find their form? Singapore perhaps.

Vettori had a good performance first game and didn't regularly embaress himself - so his confidence will still be in tact. Smith captained very well, and only being there for 1 game I don't think it will have had a terrible affect on him.

South Africa's doomed with having to face the combined powers of Vettori and Bond.

Bond & Vettori. The best thing since Hadlee & Bracewell.

Fleming always plays well in South Africa too.

I suppose this won't be broadcast on free to air?

I need to get Foxtel put through to my room.

Yep, we still suck. Honestly, it's downright embarassing to be South African when cricket's involved. I fully expect the Proteas to be pwned throughout this series, unless, by some miraculous stroke of luck, they decide to stop being a bunch of moffies.

I wonder if they are webcasting audio.

Surely South Africa have the internet now (they were big on CompuServe last time I was there - 2003).

At least wait until the first game to write them off.

Axver & I will look after you don't worry.

Also a request... can we have more Afrikanner swearing in the thread?

Bad news for New Zealand, as it appears Vettori will no longer be playing for them:

http://content-usa.cricinfo.com/rank...ge/211270.html

I feel bad for the three players on the ODI Batsmen list who didn't even get to join the row crowd.



By the way, before any Kiwis jump off a bridge, read the link.

*Jumps off a bridge regardless*

That's awful news!

Now we must patiently wait for Shane Bond to end the summer in the top spot for ODI & Test bowling.
