Very poor batting and typical of our continued approach. We will probably win this game but our batting resilience needs to improve greatly. Soft underbelly
I don’t get what the change in the batting order was meant to achieve
Surely after the great start like we got if your going to make changes to play around with a pinch hitter …which is what we will need to chase down a 350 + score v India or England
Cricket grounds are going the same way as golf courses …technology is making them inadequate
Watching one batsmen hit 17 6’s in one innings and 33 6’s in one game tells me we need to make the playing arenas bigger
Be interesting to see what players who had retired 5-10 years ago think after using modern bats
Remember seeing Jack Nicklaus only a few years ago saying he hit his driver further now than he did in his prime 40 - 45 years ago
SA could have won that but chocked . Kane Williamson played a top Knock.
SA got lucky even being in the game …one batsmen slips and is out hit wicket …another gets an edge on a bad delivery that would’ve been called a wide if he doesn’t feather it
The Saffas lack a Lance Klusener type in their line up at that 7 spot to be a worry and many in their top order are out of form
- NZ - 11 points played 6 games
- AUS- 10 points played 6 games
- IND - 9 points played 5 games
- ENG - 8 points played 6 games
The top teams start to play each other this week. It will be interesting to see how the semi finals pan out. Id imagine it Won’t be too long before India are in top spot .
England have. S.L and the Bangers behind them in 5&6 respectively.
