Hmm.. duty calls.. in the meantime, keep going.. or you can decide to go back, plan and then regroup.. I am fine with both the scenarios..

please keep the running totals.. I will only give points going forward.. this totalling takes too much time and then I get lost.. so..

we can tally scores in the end.. winner gets a surprise trophy :)

Right - I'm off.

Katto, good night, sleep tight, stop being an angry man looking for a fight.

Laters Lungi and Scrub.

I'll be careful to add "proofreading my grammar and further adding clarification quotes so you cannot have any excuse not to clearly comprehend my meaning" for you in future.

The irony of this nut calling Katto angry. Sanctimonious crybully confirmed. :cool:

You're such an angry man. Calm down. I don't want you going off and beating your wife or anything.

It is only the internet.

You lost some face on a forum and displayed poor communication skills and lazy reading. Who cares?

katto.. "at least".. yup verity.. you wanna jump in or help me score? I prefer the former even if it makes scoring a tad iffy.. I will ensconse Giant also to throw in his might.. what says? May be GS and raja will join the picnic (they will be assigned sides.. I think GS fits with Paddles and raja to katto.. sort of lends a balance.. you and giant are sort of equals so does not matter who goes where.. may be Giant will take katto team and you paddles.. dunno.. time will tell..

So lets up this a bit from a one on one to a group orgy.. what says?

The score however for round 1 of the bout remains at 2 all.. the 1 mark given to katto by verity for that eloquent F**k off is withdrawn after careful deliberation.. the objection raised was that it was told to verity and not to the opponent viz paddles.. so cannot count for points against paddles.. the objection, found to be valid has been upheld.

However, katto opened a new account against verity.. so verity 0 katto 1 in that segment. Verity is encouraged to join in and settle scores.

New Zealand Cricket had a successful night at the National Halberg Sports Awards.

The team of the year went to the All Blacks, again, and coach of the year went to the All Blacks coach.

But, Kane Williamson won sportsman of the year - well deserved.

Brendon McCullum got a leadership prize. And Grant Elliot's 6 in the semi final was the sporting moment of the year.

Not bad for a rowing/kayaking obsessed country where rugby union is a religion and this is reflective that the current Black Caps team is building a fair sporting profile in NZ.

Supreme Award went to the All Blacks, but no surprises there.

The Black Caps need to win a significant world event to take the next level at the Halbergs.

All Blacks ( rugby union) won all the big awards: team, coach and supreme award (all main winners are eligible for this).

Rowers and Kayakers didn't get far this year. Nor did Scott Dixon. Lydia Ko won sportswoman of the year.

But it was nice to see Cricket get some attention for once in NZ.

Rugby and olympic type sports typically dominate these awards. Valerie Adams, yachting, rowing kayaking- that kinda thing.

All the blocks is different from black caps. The black caps has a choice wearing other-than black shirts, pants, undies & lingees but all black has it all in black be it cap or lungi.

So the first tough selection has been made. Matt Henry will play.

This leaves Neil Wagner and Mark Craig fighting it out.

If Wagner plays, the ridiculousness of Corey Anderson is ever present, with a 5 seamer attack then playing, with a tail that starts at 8, or if Watling batted ahead of Anderson, it could be said that the tail starts at 7.

Guptill
Latham
Williamson
Nicholls
McCullum
Anderson
Watling
Craig/Wagner
Henry
Southee
Boult

If Wagner plays, that batting line up looks atrocious, and in all seriousness, one of the weakest in test cricket.

If Craig plays, Aussies will fancy many runs.

Tough decision for the selectors.

http://www.stuff.co.nz/sport/cricket/77069841/black-caps-eye-fourseam-attack-against-australia-on-green-hagley-oval

If four seamers play, Anderson should not play. A specialist batsman should take that role with KW and Guptill to bowl some spin.

I understand the strategy now. Play five seamers, bowl 20 overs per session. BMac gets banned for slow over rates, but who cares, he's retiring!

Wish he'd done it at the Gabba and Welly then.

No bans, not an icc tournament match.

I was unequivocal with regards Katto.

Come on now Lungi you failed to allocate minus points for uber use of verbosity by our kiwi friend in an effort to overwhelm his opponent and who obviously doesn't heed the Occam's razor principle.

Whereas Katto certainly does. ;)
