AUCKLAND: Former New Zealand cricketer Craig Cumming is unhappy with head coach Gary Stead's persistence with opener Finn Allen, who failed with the bat in the recently-concluded three-match ODI series against India.The hosts whitewashed the Kiwis 3-0 with Allen, 23, scoring two consecutive ducks and a 40, raising doubts about his selection in the New Zealand side with the ODI World Cup in India less than nine months away.The cricketer had made his 50-over debut last year with a few impressive scores against Ireland and the West Indies but has quickly gone into a downward spiral."I'm concerned about the style of cricketers we're trying to produce. I want to produce Devon Conways, I want to produce Kane Williamsons; the guys that have got craft and can bat and they've got more than one (...

NAPIER: A drastic change in approach is need of the hour for India but question remains if the likes of Umran Malik and Sanju Samson will be tested in third and final T20 against New Zealand here on Tuesday. India were expected to try out a bunch of players after another World Cup debacle but if the team combination for the second T20 was any indication, they seemed reluctant to start with a clean slate.

From Auckland to Wellington to Sydney- The journey of Finn Allen, New Zealand’s explosive opener

When Finn Allen was asked this March to name the first thing he would do if he woke up as his RCB team-mate Virat Kohli the answer was revealing. “I would probably walk into the streets to see how it feels to have everyone chase after you.” That ethereal fandom is yet to hit of course but at the start of this T20 world cup, Allen experienced what Kohli has felt a few times during his international career. In the world cup opener on October 22nd, the SCG cauldron was simmering as the young New Zealander faced up to Mitchell Starc, one of the most lethal bowlers of the modern era. In the background, a 45000-strong home crowd were hollering for Starc. Boom. The 23-year-old Kiwi wallops one over Starc’s head. The memories of the 2015 final of Brendon Mccullum losing his stumps, charging do...

BRIDGETOWN (Barbados): Tim Southee and Trent Boult combined to demolish the West Indies top-order batting as New Zealand scored a series-levelling victory in the second one-day international of a three-match series at Kensington Oval in Barbados on Friday.

Set a revised target of 212 off 41 overs on the Duckworth-Lewis-Stern scoring method, Yannic Cariah's 52 in his debut ODI innings and a swashbuckling 49 off 31 balls by Alzarri Joseph gave the tourists a fright in a frenetic 85-run ninth-wicket...
