NZ destroy Zimbabwe in two days

[Imported from Whale Oil Beef Hooked on Blogger]

If you are going to tour a country in the grip of a malevolent dictator then the best thing you can do is win.

If that is the best thing you can do, then what do you call the efforts of the Kiwi Cricket team who destroyed Zimbabwe in the first test inside two days.

Daniel Vetorri was the main destroyer, bashing the fastest ever hundy by a new Zealand Batsman on his way to 127, then joining Sir Richard Hadlee and Chis Cairns as the only Kiwis to take more than 200 wickets. Vettori finished with 6 for 29 for the match.

New Zealand joins England in being the only sides tyo have bowled out their opponents twice in one day.

This was an emphatic victory by the Kiwis and justifies their second placing in Test playing nations.

Correction: Thanks to Joe Hendren for pointing out that NZ is 5th not 2nd, my mistake, I saw a news article that said they had gone up 2 places…silly me.
