    Not so much a "New Zealand Day"

    The frustration for Kiwi supporters continued yesterday as their side chocked a spluttered their way through the final overs of the final One Dayer in the preliminary stages of the Commonwealth Bank Series. So disappointing after such a great start.

    Steve Flemming looked elegant at times during his 106 which while being the back bone of the innings, probably slowed them down at the critical time and left the very capable tail which includes the never-say-die Daniel Vetori and the sweet hitting, baby-face Franklin. NZ fell 14 runs short on their national day - why is it they play so much above themselves when they are against the Aussies - if it is just Trans-Tasman rivalry, they really ought to find a way to lift like that for all their games. They are a serious challenger for the World Cup at their best, and in danger failing in the qualifiers at their worst.

    I for one find them one of the most entertaining sides when they're on, but they find so many ways to be off, it's frustrating.
