New Zealand Versus England Part Two

New Zealand is all set for some sweet revenge against the Poms. After losing the home series 2-1, which was more disappointing considering we were 1-0 up!, the Blackcaps will take on the English on their home soil.

Now the 20/20 match will be fun, the one dayers will be interesting, but all that really matters is the three test matches, England are red hot favorites, but I'm predicting that the Blackcaps will win the series 2-0.

My main reason is pictured, a young man named Tim Southee who is brilliant with the ball, like a young Hadlee and is devastating with the bat like Chris Cairns, some say hes too young to be playing tests, I disagree.

When you have a guy like him batting way down the order, it helps the brittle batting of the top order, and then if the conditions are overcast, he will start swinging the ball, he will have several warm up games under his belt, and I think even at the tender age of 19, he will be player of the series.

With some batsman coming into form and the team being captain by the brillant Daniel Vetorri, we are in with a real chance. The Blackcaps need this series victory, and I thinking the timing is right.

Roll on the Tests!!!!

i would love it if the Black Caps won 2-0, but to do that requires more than Tim Southee - just look at the Napier Test. It not only means getting 40 England wickets in the games we win, but scoring more runs than them - and that seems to be the hardest part at the moment.
