  • Emma Hart,

    I don't want to second guess Vettori, or suggest that he wasn't justified in being angry. Declining to shake hands at the end of the game certainly suggested that he was rather annoyed by Collingwood's decision.

    I was thinking about this last night while listening to the game, and I wonder how much of that annoyance stemmed from the rain-affected one-dayer, when England's habitual slow over rate took another victory away from NZ.

    Yeah. If Gillespie hadn't gotten those last two runs, NZ could have claimed to have been robbed of two victories by the English cricket captain.

  • Hadyn Green,

    And now we don't have to worry/complain so much. 3-1 series victory.

  • Paul Williams,

    Hadyn, well said.

    I got up for the middle overs in which Vettori exacted precisely the kind of revenge I'm only capable of dreaming about! What a brilliant spell of bowling (mostly) ably backed up by his field.

  • Grant Dexter,

    I was just saying that cricket has not always been played in accordance with the spirit, that people disagree as to what the spirit requires, and that many people think its better to go for the doctor and win than play in the spirit and lose.

    Can't argue with that :)

    Good win to round off the series. Congratulations to the Black Caps :)

  • Peter Ashby,

    Mind you the Windies were incented by the overs in time rule, they saw and see it as directed at their traditional reliance on an all pace attack, and indeed it rather does force a team to have at least a part time spinner/Styris clone to speed things up so I think they have a bit of a point.
