Holy shit, 2-0?

Too good to be true. I mean, we're all about snatching defeat from the jaws of victory!

Yeah, Ponting and Marsh weren't there, neither was Tait.

I think Warner should be replaced.

Even Bangladesh could beat the Aussies at the moment

Aus would probably only beat them by 50 runs.

Whatever happened to all that depth that Australia liked to think it had? Two individuals don't make a team, but now it's the only excuse Australian supporters seem to be able to offer. Epic inconsistency, people!

(And if we want to play by the argument of "so-and-so wasn't playing", note the lack of Oram on the Kiwi team.)

On another note, shouldn't we start a 'Cricket 09/10' thread, this thread is pretty much dated.

A new thread to represent the decline of Aussie cricket and the new era of South Africa and India should be posted

Ok folks feel free to take the George Michael

Eng are the worst team ever

Aussies should complain that they are playing amateurs this summer - should tour Kenya instead, a much tougher test

I'm starting to wonder about that, too...

Well, 2-all in the series, Oz have a chance to win, and I predict they will.

I think so, always had faith.

Still much prefer tests though.

Chance against South Africa in South Africa? I'd think not.

Weeelll... Boucher and Smith both may not play.

And from what I hear Duminy still may be dropped for Prince

Get rid of McKenzie, he's boring as shit and useless to boot

Well, this series suddenly got bloody close.

Doesn't help Australia probably have shitloads of motivation from wounded pride, while New Zealand's trying to figure out how it came within striking distance of a series win.

The 3rd lowest England score ever

and considering they made the game in the 19th Century (i think it was that era), to think of all the innings played before that one in Jamaica
England came up with the 3rd worst ever - at least they will be remembered for something

I bet NZ were praying for Eng to be out for under 26 - they still hold the all time lowest innings in test cricket

Interesting scenario going on here. Match has been reduced to 22 overs a side, thanks to monsoonal rain up there, and New Zealand are well on top with Australia 3/42. Hopes out to a woeful shot, Ponting out to a beauty from Mills, and David Hussey out trying to belt a ball that moved half a mile off the seam to the onside.

But we still don't get rolled by the West Indies for 51 in test cricket.

Oh fucking hell. The game being rained off has to be the biggest letdown. Guptill was playing the innings of his life. He was unstoppable. We were going to win the fucking series.

Declare the Sunday Twenty20 game to be the decider. Come on, today's game was essentially a Twenty20 anyway. Do the right thing, guys. Let's have this thing out.

Also, I can't believe there wasn't a reserve day scheduled for the decider. Sheer idiocy.
