What an UTTER shambles. Calling them pitiful would be an act of kindness; Under 16’s would probably have made a better showing. LINK
The crazy thing is that, even though it is called the World Cup, a team can lose three games, at a squeeze even more, and STILL get through to the next stage! All about money? We couldn’t possibly comment.
It has to be said that Tim Southee and Brendon McCullum just ripped England to shreds. Everyone else in the New Zealand team did exactly what was asked of them. Southee took 7 wickets for just 33 runs and McCullum scored 77 runs off of just 25 balls.
Brendon McCullum was just awesome. He batted like a high-class cricketer but he was thinking like a top-rated baseball player – “Bowl it and I will hit it out of the ground.” A treat to witness. The England team could only watch and wonder.
