Gone, but quite an improvement :-?
NZ need to lift their run rate if they want to lift the Cup.

I think NZ have made a very good start. They're only 1 down, have played sensibly, weathered the early storm and are set for a good total.

We could, yet, be in for a thrilling finish. Let's hope so!

I don't fully understand the review process. Only allowed 2 or whatever, The Umpire gives out but on review not out.
Why cant all them not sure results be reviewed ? Like in Rugby and League.
No room for error,

I agree, Jep. At the end of the day, all of us want to see consistency and fair results. There are a lot of faults with the DRS system; it isn't perfect; but it works, most of the time.

Roy's 'dismissal' in the semi was a perfect example - everyone knew he wasn't 'out', but there were no reviews left.

I'm not about to disagree, nor agree with you Horace. Let's see what the NZ bowlers have up their sleeves. I will predict NZ are a few runs short of a win as it stands now.,..but its a funny old game.
