Playing with the big boys

1 10 2010

The Herald’s David Leggat points out that after a weak performance from Central Districts in South Africa, New Zealand better not take its slot in the Champions League Twenty20 tournament for granted; after all, New Zealand teams have yet to win a game:

…New Zealand are now, collectively, 0-from-6 at the Champions League.

It might not sound a big deal. After all, it’s not international cricket, it’s not even the heavily-hyped IPL.

But New Zealand need to watch out. When the people who make these decisions gather, they may well wonder at the merit of inviting representatives of a country which makes such a small impact.
