And you thought England sucked

Posted on/at 9:40 AM by The Cricket Corollary

It's official New Zealand suck! They lost a warm-up game against a South African Domestic Team. The Warriors have not won a trophy in the last 6 years, but they managed a 2 wicket win with 6 balls to spare.

The Black Caps lost the toss and were sent in to bat. Martin Guptill made 78 off 97, Ross Taylor hit 51 from 70 and Grant Elliott contributed 47 off 48, but their last six wickets fell for only 27 and they were dismissed for 237.

Seam bowler Juan Theron, was the star of the show, getting 5/42. Davey Jacobs scored 54 off 56. Ian Butler did what he could getting 4/53, and Daryl Tuffey,  took 3/49.

Not gonna happen

Well I wont say anything against the English cause they won the Ashes. That's enough. Expecting more from them is a sin and being plain greedy.

But New Zealand is a team that plays better cricket when the game id shorter. in other words performance is inversely proportional to the overs. That's y they r good in T20.
