Kiwis rally late to win by 4 wickets published by ikhan on Tue, 01/14/2014 - 21:24 Wellington, New Zealand - New Zealand came from behind to win the 2nd and final Twenty20 International against the West Indies and take the series 2-0. It was a close match heading into the final stages, after the West Indies made 159/5 from their 20 overs. Denesh Ramdn top scored for the Windies with 55 not out while Andre Fletcher made 40. Both batsmen put on 70 runs for the 5th wicket. New Zealand lost early wickets in their chase. But just like Ramdin and Fletcher, the hosts found a good partnership when they needed one. Ross Taylor and Luke Ronchi combined in a 68 runs stand to put the Kiwis back on track. Taylor hit 39 but Ronchi was the star of the show, blazing an unbeatn 51 from 28 balls as New Zealand won by 4 wickets. The West Indies won the toss in the second and final Twenty20 International and elected t bat first against the Kiwis. There were a few changes around with Mitchell McClenaghan back in the squad in ...

Latham, Ronchi power incredible NZ chase Zealand 203 for 6 (Latham 86, Ronchi 49) beat Sri Lanka 138 for 1 (Sangakkara 71*, Dilshan 55*) by four wickets (D/L method) Before this match, 21-year-old Tom Latham had boasted that even this depleted New Zealand side backed themselves to chase tall scores against Sri Lanka. Striking a scintillating career-best 86 off 68 deliveries, Latham proved that threat was not just bluster, as he carried the visitors most of the distance of their 8.6-an-over, rain-shortened chase before an ebullient Nathan McCullum pulled the match from the brink again, plundering the required 20 off the final over to propel New Zealand beyond the target of 198 off the last ball. Along the way, Luke Ronchi hit his best score for New Zealand, making 49 in the belligerent 93-run partnership with Latham that resurrected the innings, after four wickets had fallen early. The match had earlier been interrupted for five-and-a-half hours by rain and lightning, as Kumar Sangakkara and Tillakaratne D ...
Cricket: Sri Lanka bat against New Zealand Sri Lanka's captain Angelo Mathews won the toss and chose to bat in the second one-day international against New Zealand in Hambantota on Tuesday. The first match on Sunday at the same venue was rained off, with the Black Caps on 13-1 off 4.2 overs in reply to the home team's 288-9. Bad weather is also expected to hit Tuesday's match as rain clouds gathered over the southern coastal town. New Zealand: Kyle Mills (capt), Tom Latham, Anton Devcich, Rob Nicol, Grant Elliott, Colin Munro, Luke Ronchi, James Neesham, Nathan McCullum, Adam Milne, Andrew Ellis. Sri Lanka: Angelo Mathews (capt), Tillakaratne Dilshan, Dimuth Karunaratne, Kumar Sangakkara, Mahela Jayawardene, Dinesh Chandimal, Lahiru Thirimanne, Nuwan Kulasekara, Lasith Malinga, Rangana Herath, Sachithra Senanayake.

Toss New Zealand chose to bowl v Sri Lanka Live scorecard and ball-by-ball details New Zealand's stand-in captain Kyle Mills chose to bowl in the first ODI against Sri Lanka, on a pitch with a layer of grass that promised movement for the seam bowlers. The threat of rain, which would put the team bowling second at a disadvantage - as they contend with a wet ball - may have influenced Mills' decision as well. Angelo Mathews, however, said he was happy to bat first, and expected the pitch to wear later in the evening. Tom Latham was slated to open alongside Anton Devcich for New Zealand, with Luke Ronchi also in the team, as wicketkeeper. Fast bowlers Adam Milne and Mitchell McClenaghan both made the XI, as did Corey Anderson, but James Neesham missed out due to a groin injury. He was expected to recover in time for Tuesday's second ODI. Neil Broome was also not considered for this match, as he has not yet arrived in the country. Dimuth Karunaratne will open for Sri Lanka, after three months of excellent fi ...
Bangladesh aim for T20 improvement November 6, 2013 Start time 13:30 local (07:30 GMT) This is probably the best time for Bangladesh to begin fixing their horrible Twenty20 record. They have lost six of their last seven matches, and went down to teams like Netherlands and Scotland in recent times. A fast improving team in the ODI format, Bangladesh have not yet adapted to the game's shortest version. New Zealand, on the other hand, are a skilled team in this format and could use it to end their tour of Bangladesh positively, after failing to win a Test and losing the ODIs 0-3. Led by Kyle Mills, they performed a little better in the final one-dayer, scoring 307 for 5 but were let down by the bowlers. New Zealand are bolstered by Luke Ronchi in the middle order while Corey Anderson, Jimmy Neesham and Grant Elliott will be expected to pull weight as allrounders. Their pace attack has struggled and so has their solitary spinner in Nathan McCullum. The absence of more quality slow bowlers has been a weakness ...
Shamsur leads Bangladesh to clean sweep over New Zealand Bangladesh beat New Zealand by four wickets in the third ODI to take the three-match series 3-0 Shamsur Rahman led Bangladesh to a stunning victory over New Zealand on Sunday, chasing down more than 300 to complete a 3-0 sweep of the one-day international series. Shamsur's 96 rocketed the home side to 309-6, steaming past New Zealand's 307 with four balls and four wickets to spare at the packed Khan Shaheb Osman Ali stadium at Fatullah just outside Dhaka. The 25-year-old opener hit seven fours and four sixes in his 107-ball knock as Bangladesh successfully chased down a 300-plus total for only the second time in their playing history. Shamsur, playing only his second one-day international, fell short of what would have been a well- deserved century when his attempted drive off a Corey Anderson delivery became an edge and flew to wicketkeeper Luke Ronchi. Naeem Islam continued to lead the charge after Shamsur's departure before he was run out for 63 ...
Excellent first innings from New Zealand and Mushfiqur Rahim would be ruing his decision to bowl first after winning the toss. The two man dictators on the pitch were Colin Munro and Ross Taylor. Munro initially snitched a crucial stand with Taylor to consolidate in the middle with an array of innovative shots while Taylor then made use of the platform to get the license for the big shots with a quickly-paced stand with Luke Ronchi.(who hardly had to contribute much to the partnership).
Kane_Williamson will lead NZ in the three ODIs & two T20Is in SL. Luke Ronchi and Ian Butler will replace B_McCullum & R_Taylor in the squad
Team news Williamson's thumb injury is a big blow for New Zealand as he was their best batsman on the tour. Luke Ronchi is slated to replace Williamson, but will only reach Bangladesh before the final ODI, so the team management will have to pick between Colin Munro and Tom Latham in the second. Brendon McCullum has talked about rotating his bowlers, so Adam Milne or Kyle Mills could feature in place of Mitchell McClenaghan.
Kane Williamson ruled out, Luke Ronchi will replace him.
Sir I am innocent, I thought I was going to see Luke Ronchi dance.

New Zealand captain Brendon McCullum believes it's only a matter of time before Luke Ronchi "tears a team apart" with the bat.
Disciplined New Zealand bowling restricted Australia to a total of 243/8 in their Champions Trophy Group A match at Edgbaston, Birmingham on Wednesday. The Australians, missing injured captain Michael Clarke and suspended opener David Warner for a game they must win to retain a chance of reaching the semi-finals, struggled on a slow wicket after winning the toss. Shane Watson was caught by wicketkeeper Luke Ronchi off fast bowler Mitchell McClenaghan for five and Phil Hughes was run out for nought after sharp work by Martin Guptill to leave Australia reeling on 10/2. Captain George Bailey and Matthew Wade steadied the innings with a third-wicket partnership of 64 and Bailey scored 55 off 91 balls before he was bowled by spinner Nathan McCullum. Adam Voges made a breezy 71 off 76 balls, including seven fours, but he became McClenaghan's third victim when he mistimed a full toss straight to Brendon McCullum at short extra cover. Experienced New Zealand spinner Daniel Vettori completed miserly figures of non ...
Australia vs New Zealand, Edgbaston New Zealand (possible) 1 Martin Guptill, 2 Luke Ronchi (wk), 3 Kane Williamson, 4 Ross Taylor, 5 James Franklin, 6 Brendon McCullum (capt), 7 Colin Munro / Grant Elliott, 8 Nathan McCullum, 9 Tim Southee, 10 Kyle Mills, 11 Mitchell McClenaghan. Australia (possible) 1 Shane Watson, 2 David Warner, 3 Phillip Hughes, 4 George Bailey (capt), 5 Adam Voges, 6 Mitchell Marsh / Glenn Maxwell, 7 Matthew Wade (wk), 8 James Faulkner, 9 Mitchell Johnson, 10 Mitchell Starc / Xavier Doherty, 11 Clint McKay. This is another Do or Die match. If Australia lose there chances of making it is very slim. But if they win, they will be back in the mix. For New Zealand, winning will put them in a good position and they should qualify if they win. Daniel Vettori and Micheal Clarke will not play in this game. Both teams will try and win the trans-tasman game!

2013 Champions Trophy: Meet the teams GROUP A AUSTRALIA: The two-time champions kick off their campaign against hosts England on June 8, with whom they are expected to spar for the next few months. On paper, it can be said that the Australian pace attack might be a little short on experience, barring Johnson and Starc that is. But at the end of the day, they will have to be judged by what they do on the field. David Warner and Shane Watson, bring the fireworks to a batting line-up that should be up to scratch against the moving ball, given that most of them have county experience. But will they be able to do enough to become the last team to win the Champions Trophy? Sri Lanka: The men from the island nation, who were joint winners in 2002, are playing under a new captain- Angelo Mathews. In Mahela Jayawardene and Kumar Sangakkara- the men who preceded Mathews, it can be said that the Lankans have the ‘proper’ batsmen to handle the heat in England. Lasith Malinga is pretty much the most dangerous bowl ...

Tell that to Kruger van Wyk, Neil Wagner, Imran Tahir, Brendan Nash and Luke Ronchi.
I am still expecting Luke Ronchi to come good with the bat.wait am i the only one?
Right, an admirable chase from New Zealand, but some things it needs to sort out before the Champions Trophy: 1. Finding a fifth bowler. James Franklin, Kane Williamson and Colin Munro do not equal a fifth bowler. Williamson is a sixth bowling option, Franklin ideally should not be bowling, and Munro should not be seen without ten metres of a bowling crease. 2. Finding an opening batsman. Still can’t understand why Luke Ronchi was selected in the first place, and he’s been shown to be hopelessly out of his depth at this level. If BJ Watling can’t recover in time, we are effectively one down before we walk out to bat. 3. Not playing Colin Munro. Munro’s footwork makes Mathew Sinclair look like a majestic Martin Crowe. An embarrassment at this level. Grant Elliott is not a fashionable choice, but he knows his game, scores runs and rotates the strike. 4. Bowling Yorkers. What happened to our death bowling? Not so long ago Tim Southee was the best death bowler in the world. Maybe he’s struggling to ...

Tim Bresnan, who is waiting on news of his heavily pregnant wife, was also economical with the new ball as England kept control during the first Powerplay; New Zealand were 36 for 1. It added further heady context to what happened during the rest of the innings. Woakes, after suffering the dropped catch off his bowling for the second time in three days, sent down another expensive opening spell which cost 29 as New Zealand's second-wicket pair increased the tempo. Both Guptill and Williamson timed the ball beautifully square of the wicket particularly off the back foot. Joe Root ...
ICC Champions Trophy 2013 Team Preview – New Zealand::: (NZ men, Possible XI and NZ fixtures) Over the last few tears, Kyle Mills has been the spearhead of the New Zealand Bowling attack in ODI’s.

2013 Champions Trophy: Meet the teams New Zealand Champions in 2000, the Black Caps are also the dark horses in a group, where the other three teams are superior, at least on paper. Luke Ronchi should have an interesting time, if he gets to play against his previous employers- Australia on June 12. Some of the names in this team, have the skill and talent to match the best in the world. But what matters is what they register under the ‘matchs won’ column in the points table. Squad: Brendon McCullum (captain), Trent Boult, Doug Bracewell, Grant Elliott, James Franklin, Martin Guptill, Mitchell McClenaghan, Nathan McCullum, Kyle Mills, Colin Munro, Luke Ronchi, Tim Southee, Ross Taylor, Daniel Vettori, Kane Williamson.

Martin Guptill's fluent unbeaten 103 led New Zealand to a comfortable five-wicket victory over England in the first ODI at Lord's on Friday. Guptill shared a third-wicket partnership of 120 with Ross Taylor which laid the platform for the touring side to chase down their target of 228 with 3.1 overs to spare. England, who completed a 2-0 win over New Zealand in the test series on Tuesday, started well after being put into bat, Alastair Cook and Ian Bell sharing a smooth opening partnership of 45. But Bell, on 18, edged Tim Southee through to wicketkeeper Luke Ronchi and the captain fell in identical fashion for 30. Jonathan Trott and Joe Root repaired the damage with a third-wicket stand of 67 before England lost three wickets in quick succession. Root was bowled for 30 trying to reverse sweep spinner Nathan McCullum. Trott, on 37, was caught at deep mid-wicket off McCullum and Eoin Morgan top-edged Mitchell McClenaghan to Ronchi to leave the hosts reeling at 126 for five. Chris Woakes made 36 and Tim Bre ...

Australia traded Luke Ronchi to New Zealand for a third-round draft pick. Australia on-traded that pick to Pakistan for Fawad Ahmed.
Former Australian ODI and T20 wicket-keeper Luke Ronchi is set to make his international début for New Zealand. It is expected that Ronchi will keep wickets, even though captain Brendan McCullum (who is also a keeper) is in the side, and that he will open the batting for the Black Caps, Ronchi hopes to replicate Aussie legend Adam Gilchrist at the role. "If I can do the slightest bit like that, it would be amazing," Ronchi told reporters at Lord's on Thursday. "I played at the same club in Perth (Perth Cricket Club), he was someone I looked up to. Our games are hopefully quite similar." This is what Ronchi said of his move from WA in Australian to Wellington in New Zealand: "I moved to Australia just before I turned seven, played most of my career here until I moved back home a year ago. "It's interesting, I don't think anyone's done it before. If I didn't try it in New Zealand I'd regret not doing it." Best of luck Luke ! NH
