    Can anyone beleive it? The best team in the world getting getting beaten or should i say thrashed by the Black Caps without getting a wicket. This is a first in history.

    Well played NZ. But having lost 3 games to England (equally surprising) and having 4 top players missing it is a little less surprising.

    If Aussie lose to any team in WI by 10 wickets I'll be very surprised.

    Well done the kiwis.
    First time ever, in the 36 year history of One Day Cricket.
    Woeful in all departments, so sack most of these numbnuts and put some in form guys from our state competitions.
    For example, the fast bowler Stuart Clarke gets not considered for any position and gets an 8 for 56 after tearing the English apart all summer.
    Well done Black Caps.

    I do find that strange. Clarke was the best bowler in the Ashes series. I suppose it's similar to the way England don't pick Hoggard (the theory being his length is too predictable and hittable in one-day matches), but it's not as if the bowlers in place are playing particularly well.

    I'm quite happy to see him not in the squad, but I don't understand it.

    Congratulations to the Kiwis!

    Another nail biter which they won to clean sweep the Aussies - never would have imagined the series ending up like it has a week ago!
