I think your comment may be a little too kind.

Dan Vettori - what a great story.

So far this World Cup his bowling figures are 2/34, 3/24, 1/19, 2/41 and 4/18.

And he's 36 years old - he played his first test in Feb 1997.

Yep, almost good enough to be classed as an Aussie.















Almost.

You wish.
He's actually the only thing the Aussie team is missing.
He's also the guy that was most responsible for the Aussie loss at Eden Park (I was there, and I loved it).

Haha, I bet you loved it ya preck.

I watched the first 4 overs and we were belting along at almost 10 an over. Even by my piss poor maths it looked every bit of 500 +.


Aaaaaand then the shit hit the fan, well and truly.
