Kiwi's will get dominated in the tests, Twenty20's you never know but we might have a chance. The ODI Series is pretty average, only play 2 games if you don't make the final. We've beaten both of those teams in the past, just not consistently. Will be good to see Bondage bowl, if he doesn't break down before the series.

The current Sri Lanka vs Pakistan games are starting around 4:30pm NZ time so its a fairly good time for viewers over here they don't seem to play many night games over there.

Yeah it looks as though we should be able to catch most of the game over here, they should finish around 11-12 I think, so that's to bad.

Why would they give Hopkins a contract but not even pick him for the test matches, I find that really odd. I can't see Young being any good with the bat though. I've seen a lot of his keeping over the years and he is pretty good, but his batting is really bad.

Also why wasn't Franklin included in the test team, he would be a far better option then Grant Elliott. Man our selcetors can be really bad sometimes. Why play Franklin against the Windies when he isn't fit, and then drop him when he starts to come good?

The Grant Elliott selection isn't that bad. Over the last 5-6 months his batting has really improved, I don't think our selectors would see him of much as a bowling threat. I'm just surprised they have droped Franklin for Oram basically, who has done nothing since last year.

Franklin was droped because he didn't perform. Did anyone see Tendulkar rough him over, we are going to Sri Lanka and we don't need guys that can't even play Tendulkar going over. I don't think his bowling would of been that great over there either.

The pitches have favoured seamers in the Pak-Sri Lanka series, Franklin would be really good with his swing. I don't know why he was batting so high in the order for NZ to begin with.

Good to see how Ryder goes after his performance against India, lets see what he's like overseas against Mendis and Murali.

The rain at Yankee Stadium fell in a steady stream. In the clubhouse, Garcia was left with more time to think about how dangerous the lineup for the Texas Rangers can be.When it was finally time for Garcia to finally pitch, however, at 8:50 p.m., he fell in line with the whirling arms that have somehow holstered the explosive Rangers for three consecutive nights. Garcia allowed four hits and two runs in six and two-thirds innings in the Yankees’ 3-2 victory.canada goose jackets sale
