Almost a classic

Australia vs New Zealand 1/ 11/ 06  

There are so many things in today’s match that were exemplary. The manner in which the Kiwis came out to field, every sinew ready to strain, every gun set to blaze. The way Kyle Mills and particularly Shane Bond bowled initially would have been delightful for any cricket fan. And then from 4 for 2, the positive intent and skill Ponting and Martyn showed to take the score to 70. Later, the stunning counter attack of Symonds, even before Australia was ostensibly safe. And finally, in that innings, the discipline with which the Kiwi bowlers struck back (just 52 runs in the last 10 overs by Australia even though they started the 40th over with six wickets left).
