My corner of the oval

… thoughts from a Kiwi cricket fan

O Captain My Captain

I’m starting to wonder about myself, you know …

I mean, my all time favourite NZ Cricket player … mostly because of his sublime batting skill … went on to be our most successful Test Captain ever! I am of course referring to Stephen Paul Fleming!

Is it any wonder, then, that after marvelling at the antics of this tattooed, dreadlocked boy from Otago from the embankment that day at the Basin Reserve, that Brendon Barrie McCullum is well on his way to being not only a favourite player and batsman by many who follow the national cricket team with pride (as well as myself!), but is cementing his place as one of our most “successful” team captains of the side, as well?!

Did I mention how much I love watching Kane Stuart Williamson bat?? 😉
