Sorry to interrupt your politics with sport, but this is our first test victory in Australia since before our strike bowlers Southee and Bracewell were born (last was Perth 1985). And only our 3rd victory in Australia ever.

And to think I was depressed when they were bowled out for 150 on Friday…

    excellent…worth it for the look on Ricky “punchy” Ponting’s face….a total plonker and once was a good cricketer.

  2. Craig Glen Eden 2

    Beautiful.

  3. happynz 3

    Well, knock me over with a feather. I certainly didn’t expect this result after Aussie was cruising at stumps last night. Congratulations Black Caps.

    Good. A comment on something much more interesting than politics with its “He said.. she said”.
    Who was it who said something like
    “Sport isn’t life or death. It’s much more important than that.”?
    Actually I think it might have been about football but the principle applies.

    • Ben Clark 5.1

      Bill Shankly, former Liverpool manager with a wise head and a good quote:

      “Some people believe football is a matter of life and death, I am very disappointed with that attitude. I can assure you it is much, much more important than that.”

      He also said:

      “The socialism I believe in is not really politics. It is a way of living. It is humanity. I believe the only way to live and to be truly successful is by collective effort, with everyone working for each other, everyone helping each other, and everyone having a share of the rewards at the end of the day. That might be asking a lot, but it’s the way I see football and the way I see life.”

      Not a bad thought for the day…

    • RedLogix 5.2

      mmm … I prefer the old quote usually attributed to Ernest Hemmingway:

      There are but three true sports–bullfighting, mountain climbing, and motor-racing. The rest are merely games.

    • tc 5.3

      Bill Shankly I believe of Liverpool FC some decades back.

  5. joe90 6

    Sigh….happy….now if only the Hurricanes could get their act together…and the Warriors….I’d be truly happy.

  6. newsense 7

    Why isn’t Bracewell man of the match? Will Shearer bring back 3 or 4 test series with Australia and institute a summer protection law to ensure that winter sports can only be played in winter not bloody February in Perth!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Woooooooooooooooooot! Awesome! yeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeah

    • mik e 7.1

      Thats helped me get over National ruining the country for the next three years !
      The Black Caps formerly known as the tossers that’s because it was the only thing they could win
      A new era of cricket god those aussie commentaters must be spewing!

      • David H Formally Deadly_NZ 7.1.1

        Now they just got to keep it up for the one dayers and 20/20’s. But what about Martin?? every one seems to forget him because of Bracewells 5 But look at the stats. at 37 Years old he (Martin) bowled 16 overs in each innings (most in 1st innings) and he got 3 in the first innings and one in the second. Yes Bracewell is the man of that moment but please don’t forget the old man of NZ cricket.

        • millsy 7.1.1.1

          Personally I couldnt give a fuck about the ODI’s and 20/20’s. Sure its good to win them, but IMO tests are more important. They are the pinnacle. We should be focusing on winning tests, and worrying about the limited overs stuff later.

    • Leopold 7.2

      Yep, that poll for Aussies only stank. Warner, to give him credit was surprised. Only way to make it more controversial would be if Warner ran out Lyons, after the results were in…

  7. Some things are cause for unity between political foes, and this in one of them. A fantastic end to a thrilling test match. Well done New Zealand.

  8. Afewknowthetruth 9

    Ah, yes. Internationalised, corporatised sport is extremely important. It is the modern ‘soma’ of the masses, provided by the system to keep the proles dumbed down, compliant and patriotic.

    The Roman emperors worked it out long ago: bread and circuses as the empire collapses.

    It follows, of course, that anyone who can see through the scam and wants to keep their brain uncontaminated tunes out.

    Keep worshiping the false gods Ben. The corporations will love you for it.

    By the way Ben, do you think that war is ‘glorious’? Do you like to see planes (or more often missiles and drones these days) ‘destroy’ houses, hospitals and people? Or do you only use such words in the wrong context?

    • The Voice of Reason 9.1

      Jeez, Turth, you must be popular at parties, eh? I think you’ll find the post’s title is meant to be humorous, not a call to let slip the dogs of war.

      • Inventory2 9.1.1

        @ VoR; agree wholeheartedly. Sometimes people just need to lighten up for a minute or two…

      • Descendant Of Smith 9.1.2

        “Turth” makes me lol everytime I see it.

        Great win.

        “I don’t love cricket, I love it”

        “wants to keep their brain uncontaminated tunes out”

        I struggle with the notion of tuning out, brain uncontaminated, obsessiveness about conspiracy theories, and lots of posting on websites all in the same wrapped up concept.

        Of course Leary postulated that the “PC is the LSD of the 1990s” — “turn on, boot up, jack in” to suggest joining the cyberdelic counterculture.

        What do you do for fun/enjoyment turth or is life meant to be a solely serious journey?

        • Afewknowthetruth 9.1.2.1

          DOS et al

          Sport is something you do not something you watch. Otherwise it provides no benefit whatsoever (except to the corporations that profit from it).

          It’s the same with music, dance, playing cards …. practically everything in life.

          Of course, many people like to be spectators of life, rather than actually living it.

          Try reading ‘Brave New World’ (Aldous Huxley) some time.

          • Jimmy 9.1.2.1.1

            Too busy watching reality TV to read, oh and arguing on the internet…

          • Descendant Of Smith 9.1.2.1.2

            Twit – I played cricket until I was 40 and found I could no longer catch the catches I used to catch, my knees were shot from 20 odd years of opening the bowling, and cataracts meant that I could no longer use my limited eyesight to bat.

            So I should carry on playing cricket with a little bell in the ball or maybe take up some boring shit like golf – not that I can see the ball once I’ve hit it, or squash which has an even smaller ball……..

            I love cricket and more importantly I love (test) cricket crowds. That is far more a social community than any other game that I have experienced. I made good friends of strangers at many games.

            And what is sport with no-one to watch but a self-indulgent look at me idiocy.

            According to your rule you can’t enjoy music unless you play it, you can’t enjoy movies unless you’re in it, you can’t enjoy speeches unless you make them yourself (yay for powerpoint), you can’t enjoy the smell of food unless you cook or eat it, you can’t fly way up in the air unless you sniff aviation fuel and get high, …..

            Anyway what is that you enjoy doing?

          • terryg 9.1.2.1.3

            nicely said AFKTT.

            and besides, lets not forget that the Black Craps “technique” basically involved hanging around until the Aussie cricket team (inevitably) turned to shit.

            it bugs me that these cricket “players” get paid, let alone 6 figure salaries.

          • rosy 9.1.2.1.4

            Should I feel insulted? I like to watch sport – useless at playing it, but.

            I do, however admire skill and talent. I’m not sure that many who know me would call me a spectator of life – just a spectator of sport and music (Can’t play music either). Oh and I read a lot – does that make me a spectator on writing?

            Awesome win for the Black Caps I’d love to have seen it!

    • millsy 9.2

      Every time I have trouble going to sleep I read your posts.

      Get a grip, its just a game.

  9. Leopold 10

    And here was me on Friday, sunk into usual depths of despair… Waiting for Mr Smile’n’wave to be photographed greeting returning Black Caps

    • Craig Glen Eden 10.1

      Yup wait for it Shonkey will be their smiling and waving as sure as Shearer will bumble his way through his next speech.

  10. tsmithfield 11

    Well done to the boys.

    Nice to be able to do a bit of BIRGing for a change instead of the usual CORFing.

  11. Bored 12

    Both sides snatching defeat from the jaws of victory so regularly in one game…fascinating. In the end it came down to dogged grit, and like the ABs we just hung in there against an equally dogged foe. Well done black Caps.

  12. Jimmy 13

    I rate this higher than the ABs winning the trotie. a; it took longer between wins and b; no one expected us to win.

    That and tests are the best sport ever: 5 days to drink, rain and bad light calls off play and at the end a draw is a pretty common result (insert right wing jib about unions).

    Brilliant. I just wish there was a world cup of tests. We could get a champion before I’m a granddad.

  13. henry olongo 14

    Absolutely superb! What about Clarke’s sore loser performance- didn’t even bother mentioning the other team. We don’t like cricket- we love it!

  14. bearded git 15

    Went to a funeral today so was gutted to miss the triumph. Maybe the end of Dan the Man era?

  15. Hanswurst 16

    Ah, after a long and cheerless year, finally a sporting achievement to get excited about!

  16. millsy 17

    First test victory against Australia since 1993, and first in Australia since 1985.

    The Black Caps needed this result, and cricket in this country is general, I was kinda getting really sick of us only beating Pakistan, Bangladesh and Zimbabwe in tests over the past umpteen years. (I couldnt give a flying fuck about the ODI bullshit.)

    Admittedly though, got a little bit disheartened with out batting efforts…

    We have to find out away to stop Bracewell from breaking down like our other decent fast bowlers. it seems that every time we have a decent paceman, his career is marked by long periods on the physio table.

  17. Herodotus 18

    After watching highlights on the Boxing day test we drew 1987. This should have been our 4th!!!!
    How Whitney was not given out to Morrison still grates me after all this time.
    Nice to see the boys stand up after last week. Never give up !!
    How interesting it must be for expat kiwis to listen to sports talk back in Aussie 😎

  18. randal 19

    stay off the fast food with all the hormones and other stuff.

  19. JC 20

    Went to watch at the Backbencher when Australia needed 39 and NZ needed 1 final wicket. Was agonisingly tense, especially when Southee’s plumb looking LBW was overturned by the review system. The place erupted when Bracewell cleaned out Lyon, jubiliation and relief to finally beat the Aussies again in a test.

    Agree with Milsy too, test matches are far more rewarding and meainingful than the T20, or ODI fluff. Hopefully we’ll get a proper 3 test series with Australia next time.

    Well done NZ!
