Are you New Zealand in disguise?

The Aussies are going down as fast as they can, it almost seems like MSD may have paid them a ‘bit’ to all fly home.

I can understand Lee, Siddle and Paine, but Henriques? Come on, the season’s just started for them and he just came off a 2 week T20CL and he already goes down! Hmmph!

It does bring that extremely funny question to my mind, Are you New Zealand in disguise? I saw it first used to describe Australia’s loss against Bangladesh in 2005 @ Cardiff. The crowd was said to have chanted, “Are you England in disguise?”.

New Zealand, too, have a big probs with injuries. I’m not sure if most of you know it, but, during the 1st test here @ Galle, during the last day, when they were fielding, they were down to less than 11 fit men that the reserve keeper, Reece Young, who wasn’t in the first XII, was given permission by Sanga to come on as keeper after Baz was out with the bug. There was a situation where Andy Moles and the physio were prepared to come and field (no jokes, ppl, I ain’t shitting you), but Ross Taylor and Jesse Ryder, obviously knowing the possible psychological scars that could come about by seeing Moles field, decided to stay on.

It even prompted a local Sunday newspaper to say that they all had the ‘air’ bug! šŸ˜€

Meanwhile, there’s a particular player in the Aussie dressing (or injury) room who’s showing the finger to all those wusses….

    Watson's a friggin possessed monster. Someone call the exorsist to Hydi.

  2. Som says:

    I still can't help but doff my hat at Punter & co for keeping the series levelled.

  3. Cricket Tragic says:

    @SujithYep, those centuries in South Africa as well as the 93 today confirm that! :P@SomWell, Som, it just shows that its that fighting spirit of the Aussies that keeps them above all the other nations..they may not be as consistent as they used to be, but they're still not going down without a whimper, at least! šŸ™‚

  4. Sujith says:

    Un-friggin-believable.This is going to take a monumental effort from our batsmen. Where's Ajit Agarkar when you need him the most? Oh well. Atleast I got 1 prediction right so far : Shaun Marsh getting 60+. You guys are the witnesses. I called it before! Check out the other predictions on this game at our blog below. Looks like I'll get most others

  5. Purna says:

    I'm glad this 7 match series is interesting. So, India's going to win the next two?

  6. Sujith says:

    I think I should officially stop

  7. Cricket Tragic says:

    Purna, this is now a 3-match ODI series and the Aussies have drawn first blood and are now 1-0 up in the series!
