New Zealand face huge defeat against Pakistan in first Test: New Zealand were staring at a comprehensive defeat in the first test after Pakistan set them an improbable victory target before wrecking their top order on the penultimate day of the contest in Abu Dhabi on Wednesday. After their first innings run-feast of 566-3, Pakistan declared their second innings on 175-2 to set New Zealand a nominal 480-run victory target in the first match of the three-test series. New Zealand openers Brendon McCullum (39) and Tom Latham (20) made a bright start before Pakistani spinners Yasir Shah (2-15) and Zulfiqar Babar (1-10) struck to reduce the tourists to 69-3 at tea. Kane Williamson was yet to open his account when leg-spinner Yasir dismissed Ross Taylor and tea was called with New Zealand needing to bat out four more sessions to force a draw with seven wickets in hand. Earlier, Pakistan declared their second stint in the middle as soon as opener Mohammad Hafeez (101 not out) brought up his sixth test century. T ...

Black Caps call up young guns as cover Wellington, February 10 New Zealand named an unchanged starting XI Tuesday for the second Test against India but called in new injury cover to replace disgraced duo Jesse Ryder and Doug Bracewell. The selectors turned to Otago all-rounder Jimmy Neesham and Canterbury batsman Tom Latham after dropping Ryder and Bracewell over their booze-fuelled antics before the first Test in Auckland. Neesham is on standby in case of a late injury to the Black Caps' bowling attack, while Latham will replace Ross Taylor if the veteran's second child, expected at any time, has not arrived by the start of the Test. Both Neesham, 23, and Latham, 21, are uncapped in the Test arena. "We see Jimmy as a genuine all-rounder who can play a number of roles for us," selector Bruce Edgar said. "Tom's an incredibly exciting prospect and is constantly pushing for selection. If called upon, we're confident that he'll take the opportunity with both hands." If Taylor plays in the match beginning in W ...
New Zealand v India, 1st Test, Auckland Form guide (last five completed matches, most recent first) New Zealand WWDDD India LDWWW Teams news New Zealand have a pretty settled combination with Corey Anderson batting at No. 6 and wicketkeeper BJ Watling coming in at No. 7. They have resisted the temptation of playing four quicks, which means Doug Bracewell will sit out, making this a big match for the India-born legspinner Ish Sodhi, against some of the best players of spin.

India’s humiliation in the One-Day International leg of their five-week tour of New Zealand was complete in front of 13,729 relatively muted spectators at Westpac Stadium on Friday (January 31). The cohesion India were looking for all through the series deserted them yet again as they were blown away by established order and newcomer alike, their reputation as a limited-overs side outside of the subcontinent lying in tatters with their sixth defeat in seven completed matches, this time by 87 runs, in eight completed matches in the last two months. Having already surrendered the series 3-0, India would have hoped for a better result in the final game, but when hope isn’t met by determination, there lies nothing but abject failure. New Zealand had familiar heroes in Kane Williamson and Ross Taylor, and an unexpected one in Matt Henry, the 22-year-old, who capped a fairytale initiation into International Cricket with a four-wicket haul. India could hardly look beyond Virat Kohli. That in essence summed u ...
Virat Kohli`s 82 was the only saving grace as the visitors failed to put up a fight against the Kiwi bowlers, led superbly by debutant Matt Henry (4/38). Earlier, Ross Taylor slammed his second successive hundred to power the hosts to an imposing 303 for five. Besides the tie in the third ODI in Auckland, India had suffered defeats in Napier and Hamilton (twice) and today`s defeat continued their disastrous overseas performance as they had lost the ODI series against South Africa before coming here. India had lost 2-5 to New Zealand in a seven-match ODI series in 2002-03. The last time the Indians failed to win even a single match in New Zealand was in 1975-76 and 1980-81, losing 0-2 in both the two-match series. Put into bat, Taylor (102) shared a 152-run partnership with Kane Williamson (88), who scored his fifth consecutive half-century, for the third wicket to rescue New Zealand from a precarious 41-2 at one stage. Taylor`s 106-ball innings was studded with 10 hits to the fence and one six, while Will ...
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 ...
ICC Rankings: Pujara achieves career-best rating; Kohli 11th Dubai, Jan 6: India's Cheteshwar Pujara today achieved career-best 851 rating points in the latest ICC Test Rankings for batsmen. India's number three batsman, Pujara has moved two places to be at the fifth position in the batsmen's rankings in Tests that were released Monday by the International Cricket Council (ICC). Pujara, with a century in the just concluded two-Test series against South Africa, gained two places. Virat Kohli, who too hit a ton against the Proteas, however, maintained his 11th position in the rankings. Pujara is the only Indian in the top-10. His 851 rating points are the best for him so far in his short Test career. Apart from Pujara and Kohli, there is no other Indian in the top-20 list headed by South Africa's AB de Villiers. Shivnarine Chanderpaul of West Indies is second followed by Ross Taylor of New Zealand. In the bowlers' Test rankings, Ashes hero Ryan Harris of Australia moved two places up to be the third behind ...
Cheteshwar Pujara moves to career-best fifth in ICC Test rankings, Virat Kohli remains static at No. 11! In the all-rounder's ranking, Ashwin continued to rule the roost at the top. South Africa's AB de Villiers leads the Test batsmen table with 912 points followed by Shivnarine Chanderpaul(876) of West Indies and Ross Taylor (871) from New Zealand. Left-arm spinner Pragyan Ojha fell one spot to ninth position in the bowlers' table, led by South Africa's Vernon Philander. Ojha lost his place to Australian speedster Mitchell Johnson, who had a sensational Ashes series gained three points to jump to 8th in the bowling list. Johnson's teammate Ryan Harris, jumped to a career-best third. Philander was followed by his teammate Dale Steyn.

A unique double, and an Ashes record The Dunedin Test featured a double-century in the first innings of the match, and another in the third, but no centuries at all in the second. How unusual is this? asked Thomas Baines from London It's actually very unusual, as it has never happened in 2103 previous Test matches! In Dunedin, Ross Taylor made 217 not out for New Zealand, then Darren Bravo responded with 218 as West Indies followed on: it was a maiden Test double-century for both of them. The nearest approach was in Bridgetown in 1957-58, when Everton Weekes scored 197 for West Indies, then Hanif Mohammad famously made 337 - in 970 minutes - to force a draw after Pakistan followed on. There was another near-miss in Nagpur in November 2000, when Sachin Tendulkar scored 201 not out for India and Andy Flower 232 not out as Zimbabwe saved the match in the follow-on - but there had been a century in the second innings of the match, as Grant Flower had managed 106.

Kyle Mills says its a fresh wicket and with the rain around, Duckworth-Lewis will come into play and we'd rather chase. Its an opportunity for the youngsters to stand up, especially away from home in Sri Lanka, and hopefully set things up for the home season and the World Cup later. We've got Grant Elliot at No. 4 and hopefully he can replicate what Ross does for us and things go well New Zealand, apart from having to brace against the absences of seniors like Ross Taylor and Brendon McCullum, are 5-16 in Sri Lanka. Even worse, since 2004, they are yet to win an ODI game here. Razmi from Saudi: "I prefer to give youngesters to open the innings & dilshan go to 5th down to play in the 30th overs power play. India's success was on dhoni playing in later order & youngesters trying their luck in the top order." 2.18pmWeather-wise, things look very good in Hambantota.

Ross Taylor made a fine century; Colin Munro played his best innings for New Zealand; Anton Devcich added a bracing contribution at the start. None of that will be remembered as the - New Zealand Herald
Bangladesh handed New Zealand a second consecutive whitewash winning the final match by four wickets on Sunday. The hosts surpassed New Zealand’s 307 losing six wickets with four balls to spare, which was also the second highest successful chase for Bangladesh. The Kiwis had also been mauled by the Tigers 4-0 in a five-ODI series back in 2010. Nasir Hossain’s cool-headed finishing, followed by match winning innings from Shamsur Rahman and Naeem Islam at the Khan Shaheb Osman Ali Stadium in Fatullah propelled Bangladesh to their seventh consecutive ODI win over the visiting side. Shamsur Rahman, topscored with 96 for the hosts, became the Man of the Match, while skipper of the winning side Mushfiqur Rahim was awarded the Man the Series honour. Winning the toss, Bangladesh asked the visitors to bat first who posted a formidable 307 for five on the back of Ross Taylor and Colin Munro. Taylor, who reached his eighth ODI ton from 91 deliveries with eight fours and three sixes, was unbeaten on 107. Munro (8 ...
Bangladesh chase 308, sweep series 3-0 Bangladesh 309 for 6 (Shamsur 96, Naeem 63, Nasir 44*) beat New Zealand 307 for 5 (Taylor 107*, Munro 85) by four wickets Bangladesh banked on a string of partnerships and two fine knocks by Shamsur Rahman and Naeem Islam, as they swept the ODI series 3-0 after chasing 309 in the final over in Fatullah. The four-wicket win matched the 2010 clean sweep at home, which New Zealand lost 4-0. This was also Bangladesh's second successful chase of a target of 300 or above in ODIs. The home side took full advantage of the new ODI rules that allow only four fielders outside the 30-yard circle during the non Powerplay overs, continually chipping the ball over the infield, and making sure they used the shorter, straight boundaries. New Zealand's 307 for 5 was the highest score at this ground at the innings break, but it wasn't enough in the end. Ross Taylor shored up an inexperienced batting line-up with his eighth hundred, but his efforts went in vain. Mahmudullah and Nasir ad ...

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).
McCullum heads home with back trouble Brendon McCullum, the New Zealand captain, is returning home immediately after being ruled out of the final two matches of the Bangladesh tour with "significant" pain from a long-standing back problem. McCullum had already been withdrawn from the forthcoming short tour to Sri Lanka, alongside Ross Taylor, so that he could play some domestic first-class cricket in preparation for the Test series against West Indies which starts on December 3. Now fitness, as well as form, is a concern for McCullum who endured a lean time with the bat in Bangladesh. He made scores of 21, 22 and 11 in the Test series followed by 0 and 14 in the first two one-day internationals which New Zealand lost to concede the series to Bangladesh. Following an MRI scan in Dhaka, Paul Close, the New Zealand physio, said: "Brendon's back needs careful management - it's flared up and is giving him significant pain. The best course of action is getting him home for rehabilitation as soon as possible." A ...

Bangladesh clinch series win with one match left. Bangladesh strike bowler Mashrafe Bin Mortaza and off-spinner Sohag Gazi’s brilliant bowling helped their team Bangladesh to crush over the visitor New Zealand 40 runs defeat held at the Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium in Mirpur on Thursday. Bangladesh off-spinner Sohag Gazi was adjudged the player of the match for his all-round performance. Chasing a 248-run target set by the visiting New Zealand for victory, Bangladesh strike bowler Mashrafe Bin Mortoza brought his team rapid glory when he bowled Kiwi opener Hamish Rutherford in his second over. Things were going in favour of the Tigers as spinners were able to send another two top-order Kiwi batsmen to dressing room within 45 runs. At a point, it was thought that Bangladesh could get another comprehensive win like the previous match. The speculation was changing suddenly when Kiwis’ notable figure Ross Taylor and pinch hitter Corey Anderson made a joint counter and eased the early collapse af ...
Drawn Tests give ODIs more context : New Zealand will be out to take revenge for their 0-4 embarrassment in 2010. Bangladesh, like they have been since the 4-0 win, will once again be out to prove that they are indeed making steady progress. Their improvement is marked in the ODI format, more than in Tests or Twenty20s, but the visitors too have been in good form over the last 12 months. New Zealand have won two of their last four bilateral series, against South Africa and England. They are, however, without Martin Guptill due to an ankle injury, and have to put together a new opening partnership. Hamish Rutherford could open with newcomer Anton Devcich, as captain Brendon McCullum has preferred batting at No. 5 or 6 in the recent past. Kane Williamson and Ross Taylor are batsmen in form while there are plenty of allrounders in the line-up to be used at different occasions. Grant Elliott, Corey Anderson, James Neesham and Colin Munro are all options that are available to McCullum, alongside his brother Na ...

England Fall Short In Run-Fest New Zealand 201-4 (B McCullum 68) beat England 196-5 (Wright 52) by 5 runs First Twenty20 International, The Oval The first balls of the final two overs both went for six but England ended narrowly short in a 20-over run chase for the second time in three days as New Zealand won a high-scoring thriller at The Oval. Set an imposing 202 for victory after a boundary barrage from Brendon McCullum and Hamish Rutherford, England began well but looked to be slipping behind around the time of their captain Eoin Morgan’s dismissal in the 14th over. He was brilliantly caught one-handed by Ross Taylor after Brendon McCullum - again showcasing his innovative style of captaincy - posted a slip. However, Jos Buttler clearly learnt from the ungainly slog that saw him dismissed first ball against India on Sunday and took a couple of balls to get his eye in before unveiling his trademark ramp shot which travelled for six. He and Ravi Bopara added 45 in 22 balls to get the equation down to ...
"Ross Taylor will be crucial to New Zealand's chances today." Waqar Younis
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!
South Australian and ICC Champion's Trophy winning batsmen Callum Ferguson feels that Australia's potential defence of the tournament hinges on victory against New Zealand on Wednesday. "Batters like (Martin) Guptill (who made two centuries in three games recently against England) who if they get through the first 10 overs, are not going to look back too often. He is in such good form," said Ferguson. "It is going to be a massive game, they are in great touch and we aren't at the moment. "You see a lot of New Zealand sides not blast opposition out (with the ball) but be very tight with their lines. "Under all their captains, from Stephen Fleming, Dan Vettori, Ross Taylor and Brendon McCullum, there has been a clear game plan and they know the conditions better than some of the other teams which has given them an advantage over the years."

CADRIFF: New Zealand defeated Sri Lanka by one wicket in a dramatic Champions Trophy group A match in Cardiff on Sunday. The Black Caps messed up a simple chase of Sri Lanka's 138 all out and were reduced to 122-8, before the last-wicket pair of Tim Southee and Mitchell McClenaghan saw them through in the 37th over. eft-arm seamer McClenaghan set up the victory with 4-43 after Sri Lanka won the toss and elected to bat, but Malinga stole the thunder with 4-34 that almost secured his team an improbable victory. The dramatic win helped New Zealand end a six-match losing streak against the Sri Lankans and claim full points in their first match of the eight-nation tournament. New Zealand were cruising at 48-1 when Sri Lanka hit back with three wickets for one run in the space of eight deliveries. Malinga triggered the collapse with a full toss that crashed into Kane Williamson's pads. Umpire Rod Tucker upheld an appeal for leg-before. Ross Taylor was leg-before to spinner Rangana Herath for zero, before Martin ...
Five keys to NZ Champions Trophy success OPINION: If the Black Caps are to have a chance at winning the Champions Trophy, a number of things need to go right for them. Batting Martin Guptill potentially holds the key to how far New Zealand progress in this tournament, as evidenced by games one and two. Teams like Sri Lanka will have noted his issues with spin, though. With Guptill and Ross Taylor firing, New Zealand have most bases covered. Taylor's smile has returned for the first time in a while, he's relaxed and the runs are flowing. Kicking on from half-centuries to three figures is the only gripe. Ronchi Watching Ronchi flay hard at the new ball raised the question as to whether he's in his ideal spot as an opener. He got a flyer at Trent Bridge, then got too ambitious with a pull shot to Stuart Broad. His regular slot at No 7 looks a better fit, and there's an argument to swap positions with James Franklin who's opened with success before. Ronchi will be better for a break from England's pacemen thi ...
ENGLAND V AUSTRALIA - ICC Champions Trophy England open their ICC Champions Trophy campaign at Edgbaston, against old foes Australia. The two teams are in Group A, with New Zealand and Sri Lanka for company. This will be the first match from this group; South Africa, India, West Indies and Pakistan have already played one round of matches each from Group B. England beat New Zealand by 34 runs in their last One Day International (ODI). The match was the third of a three-match series; Alastair Cook's men's win did nothing to change the outcome of that series for the Kiwis had already won the first two. Cook was dismissed for a duck but Ian Bell, Jonathan Trott, Joe Root and Eoin Morgan managed reasonable scores with the bat. A whirlwind 47 off 16 balls by Jos Buttler pushed England to 287 in their innings. The visitors made England sweat for their win. Ross Taylor top scored with 71 but the star of the first two ODIs - Martin Guptill - was the big wicket. The New Zealand opener followed his unbeaten 103 at ...

England have been upsetted again by New Zealand in the 2nd one day international. New Zealand batted first and posted 359/3 in 50 overs, with Martin Guptill performing brilliantly again with 189 not out. Other decent performances from the New Zealand batting line up included Kane Williamson and Ross Taylor both pulling up half centuries. England, in reply, posted 273/10 in 44.1 overs to have another gruesome defeat. Great performance by Jonathan Trott, who held the team by posting 103 not out before the rest of his England team got out. New Zealand are now 2-0 up in the one day series. AS
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.

Top New Zealand batsman - Ross Taylor @ 4.50 - 1 point Has looked pretty good in the test series and I think he will be New Zealand's best batsman in the ODI series. T.J
England will return for the final day of the second Test needing four more New Zealand wickets to seal a series sweep - and hoping the weather doesn't have the last word at Headingley. Alastair Cook hit his 25th Test century as the hosts declared their second innings on 287-5, leaving their opponents the small matter of 468 for victory. The Black Caps were struggling at 158-6 before bad light stopped play. It seemed a Monday finish could be on the cards - effectively making it a three-day game after Friday's washout - when the tourists lost three wickets in the space of 10 runs having at one stage reached 144-3. Steven Finn ended a fourth-wicket stand of 79 by getting Dean Brownlie (25) to glove a brutish short ball to Ian Bell at gully, but it was always Graeme Swann who posed the biggest danger. The off-spinner had Martin Guptill caught at slip to leave New Zealand five down and then claimed the major scalp of Ross Taylor, who battled superbly to reach 70 before playing over the top of a full ball to be ...

Stuart Broad took seven wickets to rip through the New Zealand batting order and bowl England to an emphatic 170-run victory on the fourth day of the first test at Lord's on Sunday. The touring side were skittled for 68 in just 22.3 overs, putting England 1-0 up in the two-match series and giving them the perfect start to a summer in which they also host Australia in five Ashes tests. New Zealand, chasing 239 for victory after bowling England out for 213 in their second innings, collapsed to 29 for six at lunch and Broad and James Anderson finished them off 45 minutes into the afternoon session. Broad removed Peter Fulton (1), Hamish Rutherford (9), Ross Taylor (0), Kane Williamson (6) and Brendon McCullum (8) in the space of 32 balls in the morning. Fulton was caught by wicketkeeper Matt Prior in Broad's first over and he sent Rutherford's off-stump cart-wheeling with a fine swinging delivery.

New Zealand v England, 2nd ODI, Napier Anderson and Root deliver big win England 270 for 2 (Root 79*, Cook 78, Trott 65*) beat New Zealand 269 (Taylor 100, McCullum 74, Anderson 5-34) by eight wickets England marched to a business-like eight-wicket win in Napier, completing their second-highest successful run chase against New Zealand in the process, to square the series at 1-1 after an unruly burst from Ross Taylor and Brendon McCullum had threatened Alastair Cook's masterplan. Cook and Jonathan Trott made solid half-centuries, while Joe Root twinkled with impudent brilliance in top-scoring with an unbeaten 79 but it was James Anderson's 5 for 34 that set up victory on an excellent batting surface. Having asked his bowlers to keep New Zealand to a manageable total, Cook was rewarded with early wickets and a modest run rate, only for Taylor's seventh ODI hundred to provide a rallying standard and McCullum to launch a familiar riposte. The fifth-wicket partnership was outside England's parameters of accept ...
Martin Guptill won New Zealand Top Cricket Award. Opening batsman of New Zealand Cricket team Martin Guptill on 18 October 2012 claimed the top honour at the New Zealand Cricket Awards in Auckland, winning the Sir Richard Hadlee Medal for 2011-12. Martin Guptill was also named ODI and Twenty20 player of the year, based on performances between 1 September 2011 and 31 August 2012. Also, Young fast bowler of New Zealand Cricket team Doug Bracewell picked up the other big award of Test Player of the Year. Bracewell finished the 2011-12 season with taking up of 37 wickets at an average of 24.05 Martin Guptill played terrifically in all forms of the game during the 2011-12 season. With 490 Test runs he is only second behind skipper Ross Taylor, while he top-scored for the New Zealand team in one-day with 579 and in T20 with 378.
England absentees and New Zealand's form make ODI series hard to call Ross Taylor's return and Kevin Pietersen's leave suggest that the forthcoming one-day series will be another tight affair England decided to rest Kevin Pietersen from the three-match ODI leg of the New Zealand tour. Photograph: Reuters It perhaps slipped under the radar that the former Somerset off-spinner Brian Langford died this week. But Langford possesses a record in one-day cricket that is unique and will remain unchallenged for all time. One afternoon, in the early days of the 40-overs-a-side Sunday League in England, when one-day cricket was still in its infancy, Langford produced figures of 8-8-0-0. ~SportsMan

England in New Zealand 2012-13 Morgan doubtful for second T20 Eoin Morgan is a doubt for England's second T20 against New Zealand after jarring his back in the field during their 40-run win in Auckland on Saturday. Morgan, who was England's top scorer with 46 from 26 balls and took a brilliant running catch to dismiss Brendon McCullum, tweaked his back later in the New Zealand innings. The team have moved on to Hamilton, venue for the second T20 on Tuesday, and the England management will *** Morgan's fitness on Monday. If he is unable to train, Morgan's place in the side is likely to be taken by Joe Root, who came on as a substitute fielder in Auckland. Losing Morgan would leave England without one of their most experienced T20 players as they look to secure the three-match series with a game to spare. Morgan has played 33 times in T20 internationals, putting him sixth for England, with Stuart Broad and the rested Kevin Pietersen among those above him. The most-capped England batsman in the shortest f .. ...

New Zealand v England: Eoin Morgan wary of danger posed by returning Ross Taylor
New Zealand news: Ross Taylor will make his return to New Zealand colours in the Twenty20 series against England, having been named in the squads for both the T20s and the one-day internationals that follow. Taylor, who took a self-imposed break from the international scene following his controversial removal as captain after the Sri Lanka tour, recently returned to action in the Plunket Shield and has also been included in the New Zealand XI squad to face England in two warm-up matches next week. The other notable inclusion comes in the Twenty20 squad where Hamish Rutherford, the son of former New Zealand captain Ken, has been handed his first international call-up. Rutherford, 23, has been in consistent form for Otago this season. There is a recall to both squads for allrounder Andrew Ellis after he missed the South Africa tour through injury. Ian Butler, the pace bowler, has also been recalled to the New Zealand set-up for the first time since December 2010, when he played the last of his 15 T20 inter ...

CAPE TOWN, Jan 2 - Fast bowler Vernon Philander claimed five early wickets as South Africa ripped out New Zealand for 45 inside 20 overs on the opening morning of the first test at Newlands on Wednesday. New Zealand skipper Brendon McCullum's decision to bat first backfired completely as Philander produced astonishing figures of five for seven and the touring side were dismissed for their third lowest total in tests. South Africa lost their captain Graeme Smith for one in the second over and the world's top-ranked team reached three for one in reply at lunch after an extraordinary morning session. New Zealand came into the series in disarray following the controversial sacking of Ross Taylor from the captaincy and Philander struck in the second over when he had Martin Guptill caught behind for one. That triggered an ignominious procession for the New Zealanders with Philander removing McCullum, Dean Brownlie and Kane Williamson in his next three overs as the visitors lost their top order for 27 runs insi ...
Big Picture In the last year, New Zealand have been practically living out of a suitcase, making trips to West Indies, India, Sri Lanka, and now South Africa. The most well-travelled team of 2012 has had more disappointment than joy. A sequence of five consecutive Test defeats started in the West Indies and ended in Colombo, where they recorded an odds-defying win. There were few positives to emerge from the clean sweeps suffered in the West Indies and India. The top order did not contribute enough and was criticised for irresponsibility. As a result, New Zealand's impressive seam attack never had enough runs to work with. Another clean sweep loomed in Sri Lanka after they were vanquished in three days in Galle, but the captain Ross Taylor led by example in Colombo and it rubbed off on his team-mates as New Zealand proved they had the resilience to fight back. What New Zealand did not need was the internal turmoil that subsequently led to Taylor pulling out of the South Africa tour. With Daniel Vettori ou ...
Guptill praises Taylor-made last-ball victory: Advice from former captain Ross Taylor helped Martin Guptill to hit a thrilling century and clinch a last-ball, eight-wicket victory for New Zealand in the second Twenty20 international against South Africa at Buffalo Park on Sunday.

Host of debuts for new-look teams South Africa will begin their home season in the field after New Zealand decided to bat first in the opening Twenty20 at Kingsmead. Both sides included a number of new or recalled faces as they start afresh after disappointing World Twenty20 campaigns earlier in the season. Between the two teams there are seven players earning Twenty20 debuts. For New Zealand batsman Colin Munro, allrounders Corey Anderson and Jimmy Neesham and paceman Mitchell McClenaghan, who took three wickets in the warm-up match, get their first caps. South Africa have included Henry Davids to open, Quinton de Kock to keep wicket and the quick bowler Chris Morris. Faf du Plessis is captaining South Africa after AB de Villiers withdrew from the series in order to rest and has a strong hand of quick bowlers available with Dale Steyn, Rory Kleinveldt and Ryan McLaren alongside Morris. New Zealand enter this tour in something verging on disarray following the poorly handled demotion of Ross Taylor in fav ...

Martin Crowe tells Kiwi's 'struggling' top order 'batting six hours in test is better than sex' By ANI | ANI – Sun 25 Nov, 2012 11:58 AM IST Sydney, Nov. 25 ( ANI ): Former New Zealand captain Martin Crowe had lend some words of wisdom for the embattled Black Caps' top order, saying that 'batting six hours in a testis better than sex'. Crowe delivered batting pointers to Brendon McCullum , Martin Guptill , Kane Williamson , Ross Taylor , Daniel Flynn and James Franklin , ahead of the second test against Sri Lanka, which starts in Colombo today. "Overall, lads, we just want a bit of individual spirit and some internal fortitude over a reasonable period atthe crease. Deep down I do hope youare thinking of churning out a ton. I know there is no greater feeling as abatsman. To bat six hours in a test is better than sex," Stuff.co.nz quoted Crowe as writing in an open letter to New Zealand 's batting order published on Cricinfo.

Sri Lanka v NZ, 2nd Test, Colombo, 2nd day Spinners strike to lift Sri Lanka The Report by Kanishkaa Balachandran November 25, 2012 Share: New Zealand 223 for 2 (Taylor 119*, Williamson 95*) v Sri Lanka In an otherwise one-sided tour, New Zealand finally took ownership of anentire day. Kane Williamson and Ross Taylor showed refreshing patience and application to wear down the Sri Lanka bowlers for the better part of three sessions to set a solid platform for a big score. All talk of a bouncy pitch and seaming conditions were put to rest as the bowlers struggled to create chances, with both batsmen adding an unbeaten 209. One of the main reasons for New Zealand's slump in Test form was theinability of their batsmen to occupy the crease and build partnerships. New Zealand have only five century stands this year, the highest being 124 between Martin Guptill and Brendon McCullum against Zimbabwe in Napier, until Taylor andWilliamson overtook it, against a far superior bowling attack in foreign conditions.

Sri Lanka v New Zealand, 1st Test, Galle, 1st day NZ struggle as Herath picks up five The Report by Siddhartha Talya November 17, 2012 Share: Tea New Zealand 155 for 6 (McCullum 68, Flynn 53, van Wk 9*, Herath 3-40, Eranga 2-40)) v Sri Lanka New Zealand may have been denied by the weather on a couple of occasions during the limited-overs series but they had themselves to blame after failing to take advantage of good batting conditions under sunny skies in the first Test in Galle. The visitors could have applied more patience to their approach during the first hour in which they lost threewickets and though Brendon McCullum and Daniel Flynn stabilisedthe innings with a 90-run stand, NewZealand's recovery was pegged back when the pair was dismissed after lunch. Shaminda Eranga and Rangana Herath were the highlights of Sri Lanka's day so far, during which they showed discipline and probed the opposition batsmen enough to prompt mistakes that wonthem wickets. Eranga, who last played a Test in September 2011, ...

On 1st Oct. No.1 had to shine. First West Indies which adds to 1 they won. Now Lasith Malinga is no.1(28 aug.) is man of the match for his 5 wkts. He sends England out. As 4 & 8 together creates disaster. England adds to 26(8). It was match no. 22(4). Venue Pallekele also adds to 35(8). West Indies adds to 1 & New Zealand adds to 6. Today was 1st oct. So numerology was supporting West Indies today. They won on their lucky day. 1 is very good for 8. Man of the match is Narine who is no.8(26 may) for his 3 wkts. Another no.8 Ross Taylor(8 march) made 62(8) not out.
The format of T-20 is very exciting in itself and when, one gets to see a super over then, the excitement gets doubled. A super over to a T-20 game is as good as manchurian is to fried rice or additional toppings are to a pizza. The first match of the day saw the pendulum swinging to and fro between West Indies and NewZeland. Ross taylor tried his best to see his team home but, Samules proved too much for him and the match was taken into the super over. New Zealand left no stone unturned in that over and raced to 17 runs. When you have Gayle at the other end, even 17 runs in an over look as tiny as the people and cars on the road look when one sees them from skyscrapers. Samules and Gayle did nothing wrong and overcame this total in just 5 balls to take their team to victory and into the Semi Finals alongwith Sri Lanka who toppled the reigning champions England in the second match of the day where Malinga destroyed them with his 3 wicket first over.
They took the New Zealand spirit, trampled on it, and handed over the broken pieces along with their boarding passes. The team that provided the most entertainment in the Super Eights, with two ties, lost both the Super Overs to end up with zero points. West Indies stayed alive, and were not leaving the ground anytime soon. They were done with their celebratory dances, and were now hoping for Sri Lanka to beat England and help them through to the semi- final. There was no way New Zealand should have lost this, though. Not in regulation time, not in extra time. It was a day for heroes and villains, and they were often the same men. The same Tim Southee that foxed Chris Gayle and went for 3 for 21 in regulation time failed to defend 16 runs in the Super Over. The same Sunil Narine who bowled overs 17 and 19 for five runs and two wickets to keep the match alive fielded appallingly, most noticeably in the final over, allowing Ross Taylor to retain the strike, and force the tie. What of Taylor, though? He didn ...

World T20: New Zealand skipper Ross Taylor wins the toss and opts to bowl first against West Indies.
Sri Lanka's captain Mahela Jayawardene extolled Lasith Malinga as the finest death bowler in world cricket after he bowled an imperturbable Super Over that finally killed off a persistent New Zealand challenge in their Super Eights tie in Pallakele. Sri Lanka, emotionally if not in actuality, felt as though they had to win the match twice. New Zealand had looked out of the contest, but they dragged it into the Super Over with the help off a disputable run-out off the last ball of the regular match, when Ross Taylor was held to have deflected the ball off what replays suggested was his hand but the fielder himself thought must have been his knee. When Sri Lanka scrambled 13 from their Super Over, failing to find the boundary but helped by three wides from Tim Southee, it fell to Malinga to protect their advantage. It was a close-run thing - had Tillakaratne Dilshan not held a skier at long-off, New Zealand would have needed two to win off the final ball, but Malinga produced the last-ball yorker to leave h ...
Brendon McCullum notched the highest individual score in all Twenty20 internationalsto help New Zealand humble Bangladesh by 59 runs at Pallekele stadium on Friday. The 30-year-old right hander smashed seven sixes and 11 boundaries during his 58-ball123 to give New Zealand, who reached 191-3 in their 20 allotted overs, a rampaging start to the group D match played under overcast conditions. McCullum's clean hitting madeit gloomy for Bangladesh who were restricted to 132-8in their 20 overs, with Tim Southee (3-16) and Kyle Mills (3-33) sharing the spoils. Nasir Hossain played a lone fighting hand with an impressive 39-ball 50, studded with six boundaries and a six while opener Mohammad Ashraful made 21. Shakib Al Hasan fell for 11. New Zealand skipper Ross Taylor praised McCullum's robust innings. "When you have someone score a century in T20 you're always in the box seat," said Taylor. "The wicket nipped around early on and seemed to zip on a little bit under the lights. Hopefully this win will give us mo ...
