    We don't have enought threads in FFNZ, so, here's one to boost the discussion a tiny amount.

    Yesterday's abandoned Dunedin match should be starting in 15 minutes (noon) depending on today's weather and forest fires.

    And Harry's been recalled to the squad*! Yippee!

    * Not for this match though.


    Anyway, NZ has never beaten South Africa in any sort of cricket series ever, and so a win today will mean we can't lose this one. The fact there's an even number of matches in this series is ridiculous, but I digress...

    Well there's a TV in the cafe, if I recall.

    You can get updates at cricinfo.com (but I guess that eats your internet credit being a non-NZ site)

    SA batting first 53/2 off 14


    Edit: I want that pie! :_|

    Well, I don't use the uni computers - so no "eating of any net time". I use parents connection when they aren't using it :D Scammer.

    mmmm that pie was goooood. I thought of you as I ate it, oh and the sausage roll (with heaps of kiwi gravey). Yum.

    Yea, there is a tv in "Mrs O's Cafe", but I can't afford a beer or a coffee to sit down with :p

    I feel like a souvlaki... (ok sorry, I'll stop ;) :p)

    Well it's wet here so there's no work and I'm bored so the cricket will enertain me for the rest of today.

    The final match in the ODI serieas against S.A. which we lead 4-1. And currently at my home ground of McLean Park Napier we are giving it opt them again, with the yappies at 60/6.

    5-1 would be bloody great for the Black Caps :)
