i wonder who the commentators and umpires and ICC match referees etc for these “white” games? I would love to see some asian representation as asians do invite outsiders in their locally played games. let me count on it.

leading cause of death map for women

Image

As you can see breast cancer on these charts are found to be negligible but social awareness & media buffoonery is more towards breast cancer than other causes of death for FEMALE gender. Is it because men want to give more focus to women breasts?
I would love to raise funds & research for leading cause of death more than fashionable ones. Yes they are important too, but you need to set your priorities right.

let women’s cricket or sports teams wear blue for a day in support of prostate cancer for men? ridiculous ? eh?

i would love to see pink dress in sports for 5 more top causes rather than a fancy low priority one.

GS, it is not just that it is 4% - it is the fact it afflicts and kills women 30 to 55, as well as older. Everyone dies of something at old age, but a killer of 1 in 25 women as young as in their 20's, is a bit different to a 90 year old dying of heart or brain failure or a 95 year old dying of the flu.

how many younger girls die of breast cancer ? what is the top causes of death for young girls? I am sure it’s not breast cancer. i say there is too much unwarranted noise for just one cause.

According to the World Health Org, breast cancer is the number 1 killer of women aged 20 to 59.

Now - to the tri series. NZ fans are very keen to see more of Chapman and Seifert, as well as KW to continue in the vein of form and style fisplayed in the last match.

Is Finch going to captain Aus without Warner and Smith, or will a youngster get a go?

Doubtful. This has been a complete winter tour for England, with the first tour match in Australia commenced on 4 November, and the players will be in NZ playing tests on April.

But Root was already sent home for a break (he thought he was going to the IPL), and it is the young guys looking to advance their careers in Ball, Malan and T Curran who have been the only constants on tour so far, and have missed selection for plenty of games between them. Woakes, Ali and Bairstow with Root have been rested from the t20s. Vince missed the ODI matches.

So this is an impressive effort from England, who regularly get pushed to the extreme with long winter tours that would really test the depth in English cricket. But luckily for England, they do have depth and use it wisely to get a fair team rotation going. I think the current t20 team is much weaker than what they'd send out at home, but it was a strong a odi team that they produced, and barring injury and Stokes, it was their best test and odi team.

While the t20 side is lacking a lot of the allrounders on break or Stokes that provide such batting depth for England to play their way, for such a long and testing tour of NZ and Australia, something had to give, the selectors chose it to be the t20's, but with Hales, Roy, Morgan, and Butler, England are still not of it yet. And if they continue to lose, the selectors and public are well aware that the t20 team is deliberately not at full strength, but that in a nigh 6 month tour - something had to give.

Given NZC's reliance on Boult at present in all formats, NZ would struggle to do what England is doing. It wasn't that long ago that he was an iffy selection in t20, and not long before that he was a questionable selection in ODI. Now he is our goto new ball bowler in all formats. But with no winter tour last year nor this year scheduled at present, it is maintainable.

Wow!
Ben Wheeler 3.1 - 0 - 64 - 0.

This match was the T20 version of that SA-Aus ODI game when SA chased 430-odd successfully.

D Arcy Short, who I'd never heard of before the IPL auction, seems to b a good pick for Rajasthan Royals.

NZ are Eden Park specialists and Guptil was at home in front of his fans and friends. Bit like Matt Hayden at the Gabba.

Australia did well considering I thought they were gone.

Ian Smith was paired with AB as co commentators.

Poor Smithy went from elation to despair in the second innings.
Poor Ian got so excited in the late overs he called Finch out caught on a free hit. :)

England post a very strong 194/7 in their 20.
Irishman Morgan 80 off 46, Malan 53 off 36.
18 off the last over, thanks to Dawson and Jordan.
Well done, England.

Now to see if the Kiwis can win this.
It's a small ground, so it's still anybody's game.

England are 1.60 favourites to win the game at the break.

The trick is to qualify for the final by how many? Nobody seems to know.

NZ need 175.00 (update)

I looked at his stats earlier today. One of those with a low thirties F.C. average yet a mid fifties LA average.

I’m still of the old fashioned school of your F.C. average normally being higher than your one day one.

Oh, that explains why I've never heard of this guy.
Was surprised he already had so many T20Is to his name.
I generally follow only Test cricket keenly.
With only a passing interest in ODIs/T20s.
I might watch the odd one with more interest (esp if it's a series-clincher or if there's a major milestone involved), but generally most ODIs/T20s pass me by. I sometimes check out scorecards - sometimes even miss out on that.

I watched the last 7 balls of this match. I dont think I've watched much of any of the rest of this series. Care factor is low.
Dunno why. Just doesn't capture the imagination.

I’ve always fancied going to watch a Test in New Zealand. Largely because it would mean I was in New Zealand.

I would grab the nearest local and say “HAVE YOU SEEN THE WHITE CITY ARAGORN?! HAVE YOU EVER BEEN CALLED HOME BY THE PLAYING OF SILVER TRUMPETS?!”

WHERE IS THE HORSE AND THE RIDER?!

AHHHH!!

Then I’d be thrown out by security

Surely Australia will play Zampa and drop one of the quicks they still have Stoinis and even Maxie could be used to try to slow the flow of boundaries.

Santner is back for the kiwis and Sodhi was their best bowler.

This wicket may be prepared for spin.

If Zampa gets the nod, Australia will be faced with a dilemma of culling one of their frontline quicks of Billy Stanlake, Kane Richardson and Andrew Tye, who have each starred at various stages during the tri-series. Australia's fresh team has matured quickly but the pressure will be intensified in an away final amid an electrifying atmosphere.


Zampa in for Stanlake who apart from his first match has done very little. Richardson has been the best of the quicks so he stays and Tye has a multitude of clever changeups. so he stays. Bye Billy. I would open with either Zamps or Ashton as the Kiwis, like us, are not all that great against the turning ball. Early wickets are a must on this postage stamp ground.

Dumb selectors have stuck with the same side. Kiwis have gone in with two spinners.. that alone should have told us to do the same. We are bowling so early wickets are a must here on this tiny outfield.
