Not quite just yet.....

I know you’ve become used to my reasonable level of quickness to get these blogs written and posted; sometimes though it’s just not possible.

I just have not had the time to get anything down since the last game in Wellington.  I will though, of course, cover it off in my next post after this 3rd match in Christchurch.  Sometimes life just gets in the way of a good story, and at the moment there are a couple of things that have to take precedent over getting the blog done.  No apologies, it just hasn’t been possible.

Fair enough mate.... we Indian fans can be very demanding at times....blog when u r in right state of mind.....

I guess you and Dan were desperately missed in the 3rd ODI....you could have done lot better than Southie......

Anyways you have gathered a lot of Indian fans though your blogs, you will realise that when you will come to India... dont get dissapointed by comments from some of our idiot lots.....

a question if u have the time to answer,

WHY we never see you bowl holding the ball CROSS SEAM.

a lot of other bowlers have done it however never get to see NEWZELANDERS
do it.

Any obvious reasons?

Hi Iain,

In the line of my comments to your pervious post, Yuvraj did come good and provided the impetus to propell India to that mammoth total of 392. It was always gonna be had to overhaul that kind of a total, but boy! what an innings Ryder played!

This is exactly what I meant when I said you have got one of the most exciting one day sides in the world today.

I doubt if Daniel playing in this match would have made too much of a difference. At best his overs would have gone for lesser but another bowler in the line up would have ended up more expensive.

Now, even after countering a rampaging Sehwag, if you land up in such a mess, what does one really do? Imagine Sehwag batting for a good 35-overs at least for once in this series....You'll need more than a couple of Ryder's to chase that down.

But excellent batting track mate.....I just loved watching it.

I hope both you and Dan are playing in the next match.

Best of luck.

"I got hit in my abs (abdominals) off O'Brien and the muscle was quite sore," said Tendulkar, explaining the discomfort intensified when he entered the 60s.

I agree you were reasonably quick posting ur previous blogs....but now u r going at a snail's pace ! I had bookmarked ur page for ur upcoming blogs but i dont see it happening untill new zealand win a match !! Nd that does not look likely......... It must be tough to keep writing praises for ur opposition....but wasnt it a kiwi tactic to make indians complacent ??? Come on 0brien.......wasnt it ...?
