THAT ALMOST ATONES FOR 1955.

I was in standard six then, now approaching 80 not out.

Congratulations to the Kane Williamson led cricketers, great that Ross Taylor was there to make it happen, what a catch Henry Nicholls, another old salt in Tim Southee with bat and ball.

A genuine “Team” effort makes one very proud.

India 217 and 170; New Zealand 249 and 140-2

  1. I have to admit that the last time I got excited about cricket was when somebody (not us) had Aussie on the ropes at 20 for 8 or 9 and there was a distinct chance of wiping our embarrassment from the record books. Sadly the Aussie tail managed to whack a few runs and they got past our “record” before they were removed.

  2. That Tom would have been a day to remember as well.
    Meanwhile as a contact has pointed out, that result at the Rose Bowl came after the team had to climb out of nine loong years of neglect, LoL
