NZ media was criticizing the Indian batsmen a lot for their inability
to bat 50 overs...The NZ batsmen failed to do the same in the 5th
odi...If they are put to bat first tomorrow, do you guys think they
can bat the 50 overs under home conditions, the conditions on which
they have been playing from childhood?

NZ are a avg team. If they were to bat first in the Test matches (ODI
also),they would have been in the same position as India.
Making seaming pitch just becos you can beat the opposition easily is
not fair. They will not play so well in WC 2003.

Probably not. The Indians bowl so slowly it is almost impossibvle to
stay awake that long

BTW they havent been playing on these wickets since childhood. In an
effort to suffer less of what the Indian team does by not coping
overseas, our wickets have changed substantially over the last 3 - 5
years. All our cricketers are still coming to terms with the new
characteristics.

BTW check NZs one day record over the 12 months b4 playing India. We
really aren't very good at the short form of the game.

You'll find few NZers who think their team are very good at ODOs
currently which makes India performance even more pathetic. I've seen
club sides play better

There will be no cricket tomorrow. Auckland is in the middle of a huge
storm.

I disagree. The wickets have been changes especially for this tour.

True. But how well would have NZ performed batting first in ODIs and
tests? Will Fleming again choose to bat first, unlikely. And the NZ
doesnt seem too much above the club side. None of the NZ batsman
except Jacob Oram has made any mark. The WC pitches will be only
mildly seaming.

I was responding to a qwuestion saying NZ batsmen having been playing
on them since your childhood. Make up your mind which is it? Always
like thsi or made just specially for India?
