There will always be a doubt about the final result.

How the ICC should have settled the World Cup final

I would have Burns over Harris as well.

Bancroft or Labuschagne could take Khawaja's Ashes spot

I can’t wait for the match though. It should be good.

Good delivery no doubt, but a better forward defence may have helped the batsman in this situation.

Ellyse Perry destroys England opener's stumps with an absolute seed

World Class.

Ellyse Perry brings up another superb century

Have fair pitches and things should be good. Something for the bowlers and batsman.

A proposal to save Test cricket

Hahaha. What? Gee that’s funny. Yeah, I can’t wait for the series later this year. It should be a good one. Wagner might get under the Poms skins a bit.

World Cup final a game for the ages

Great article man. It certainly one, if not, the greatest night of sport ever.

The curious case of the Sunday night angst

Stokes one was a blinder.

Geez, really Jeff?

Glenn Maxwell's Test career cruelled by World Cup flop

Yes Jeff. Keep him for next year’s World T20.

NZ can beat Australia this summer

I reckon they will keep him for a couple for the next World Cup. The ODIs, well I don’t know Jeff. He hasn’t really performed consistently in the last couple of months. If he wants to play the next World Cup I reckon he is going to have to be in really sublime form as there are a few young guns coming through the ranks that might get a look in. Guptill is our greatest ODI opener along with Glenn Turner but it will be hard to see him play the next World Cup if he doesn’t have any sort of solid form behind him.

Sorry, 1985.*

Sorry, Williamson.*

#JeSuisGuppy: Martin Guptill's pivotal and hopeless World Cup

Guptill will not be considered for the Tests, Jeff. He has had plenty of chances to cement a spot in the team but he hasn’t quite fired in the longest format of the game.

Targa, Ravindra will definitely come into the equation in the near future. Especially considering that the next World Cup will be held exclusively in India. Another guy to watch out for is South African born batsman, Devon Conway. He has been brilliant in the First Class scene for a few seasons and is close to being illegible to be play for the Blackcaps. The pace stocks are good with Duffy, Scotty K and a few others trying pushing for a spot in the Blackcaps.

Will Young is out for quite some time. I think it’s 6-7 months now. He underwent a shoulder surgery and has to recover. It is unfortunate as he was bound to get selected for the Blackcaps.

Best final I have seen in any sport. That match was worthy of a final.

World Cup final a game for the ages

Australia vs Australia A concept would help in the near future.

Tim Paine says upcoming Australia v Australia A game isn't an Ashes play-off

Tough one. Really tough. The Blackcaps were really unlucky. Match being decided by a technicality is unfortunate for Kane Williamson’s men. They should be proud of the effort they put in. They have plenty of supporters all over the cricketing fraternity.

Darren Lehmann laments 'crap' rule that decided 'the greatest game of cricket' he's seen

Plenty of rippers in there. The Cotrell one is hard to beat. Saw it live and I couldn’t believe it. Simply brilliant.

Best catches of the 2019 Cricket World Cup

True Ric. Besides Williamson nobody from the Blackcaps averaged above 40. Latham averaged below 20 with the bat and the other two openers used in the tournament averaged below 30. Willaimson was a class above for the Blackcaps. The other player who had a wonderful tournament was Jimmy Neesham. He really has come of age now and will be integral to the team’s future games.

#JeSuisGuppy: Martin Guptill's pivotal and hopeless World Cup

I don’t know why, but the Blackcaps seem to have tight contests at World Cups. NZ vs Bangladesh, NZ vs South Africa, NZ vs West Indies, NZ vs India and NZ vs England were all tight and memorable matches. I thought that the NZ vs West Indies wouldn’t be beaten in terms of a tight contest. The final trumped that game. I nearly had a heart attack watching the final. Great game, gutted about the ending but life goes on. NZ have a good future ahead.

I can’t believe he made that decision. The Pakistani batsmen were struggling to play the Afghani spinners, even the part-timers.

The 1996 World Cup semi-final springs to mind Paul when you mention the word, ‘riot’.
