Newzealand has just finished it’s series against India and does not have any fond memories to bring back home. The whole season has been very much disappointing for the kiwis as they could not bring back home a single victory back home including the Bangladesh series . The worst news for the kiwis is that ,looking back @ the stats they have lost 10 consecutive matches and all in the sub-continent and no prizes for guesses as the world cup is going to be played in the Sub-Continent and the distinctly different selection committee of the kiwis which includes The coach and the Captain of the the team as prominent members and sometimes on away tours the vice-captain also has a vote in the selection . The selection worries for the kiwis is adding up pressure on vettori’s captaincy and it also shows on his performance this series where he took just 2 wickets in four matches and scored just 80 runs of that many matches.
The Kiwis with the exception of J.Franklin could not show any character in the series and also does not look fit enough for the world cup squad. Especially Ross Taylor, what happened to the extravagant stroke maker in him? no body could understand.
Definitely, New Zealand does not seem as the unit to look out for in the upcoming world cup . Practically speaking, They are now less favored than Bangladesh in the world cup tournment.
The bottom line is “The cricket in any part down under does not seem good”
