A good brew beckons

Another potentially interesting finish brewing over at Napier even though New Zealand lost their best chance of winning by their failure to take more than four wickets by the close of play yesterday. Still, if the last three wickets fall in reasonably good time, New Zealand will have an interesting chase on their hands. In a way, their bowling, despite the inability to take more than seven wickets in 180 overs, has done the next best thing: kept things close enough to keep them in the hunt after lunch on the fifth day.

58 overs still remain. New Zealand still need those three wickets, and when they come out to bat, they will face a close-to-200 target. That won't be trivial, and given the Pakistani bowling, we could have a treat on our hands.

Here's hoping for a little "Double, double toil and trouble; Fire burn, and caldron bubble." If we're going for a stew, it'd better be good.

well, rain ruined it after all the see saw and all the expectations of a result and probably in favor of NZ

Good day guys!

I'm Kelvin from Malaysia. I visit your blog quite often for cricket news as I am enticed by the views presented by you guys on this blog.
As Malaysia is not a cricket crazy country, this blog has indeed become one of the important websites for me to read about cricket. (:

Due to my interest in your blog, I would like to recommend a deal for you. I'm currently helping a friend to find bloggers who are interested in putting paid text links on their blogs. Since you're consistently looking for advertisements, I think you might be interested.

For more details, do contact me via the e-mail, Thank you in advance. (:
Keep up the good work, guys!

With regards,
Kelvin Lye
