This after the lethal South Afri- can bowlers dismissed them for an embarrassing, paltry 45. If ever there was a classic case of not learning from one’s mistakes, this was it. That it should happen so soon after previous skipper Ross Tay- lor’s controversial sacking made it so much worse. No one doubts McCullum’s tal- ent or his courage. But does he have the intelligence to handle the demands required of a leader? Not on the evidence of this per- formance, even allowing for the brilliance of bowlers Vernon Phi- lander, Dale Steyn and Morne Morkel. It’s that lack of brainpower, technique and discipline that has seen our cricketers slump to eighth in the world with dismal perform- ances that, with few exceptions, don’t justify their pay packets. Admittedly the unavailability of three of their best in Taylor, Jesse Ryder and the injured Tim Southee, has made the task against the Proteas that much harder. While McCullum isn’t my solu- tion to the captain’s prayer, it must be admitted neither was Taylor, though his batting during his term as skipper did improve. The truth is we haven’t had a top captain since Stephen Fleming lost the job to Daniel Vettori, whose performance as a leader would have been better had he received the support Fleming got from the likes of Chris Cairns, Shane Bond, Nathan Astle, Craig McMillan and Chris Harris. For those who can ﬁght back against such tremendous odds as the current Black Caps face, I reserve our deepest admiration. We saw it in the Newlands test, when a bruised and battered Dean Brownlie scored a gutsy second innings 109 with his ability to defuse the danger of bounce with his ability to play off the back foot. In this case full credit to the selec- tors for giving him another chance upon missing the tour of Sri Lanka following his failure in the West Indies. McCullum (51) and wicket- keeper BJ Watling (42) were the best of the rest before New Zea- land were dismissed for 275 and ended up losing by an innings and 27 runs within three days. Earlier, Martin Guptill had scored a boundary off the last ball for a magniﬁcent century to allow the Black Caps to shock their crit- ics by winning the second T20 game before losing the series 2-1. Unfortunately Guptill’s test form has been abysmal, a factor former champion batsman Martin Crowe reckons could be corrected if he were to shorten his back swing. Like his late father, Dave, before him, Crowe is a talented writer whose informative column at cricinfo.com should be compulsory reading for cricket lovers. His abil- ity to diagnose each individual’s batting faults and offer solutions is particularly revealing. After his heroics in spearhead- ing New Zealand to a rare test win against Australia in Hobart, seam bowler Doug Bracewell’s form has not come on as most expected. Now could be the time to give the feisty Mitchell McClenaghan a crack at test level after showing promise in the T20s. He might go for a few, but he does have pace and bounce and has the ability to take wickets.

As well as swimming, cycling and running, Kiwi kids can rub shoulders with Paralympics gold medallist Sophie Pascoe and Olympian Alison Shanks, who will be attending events around the country. “The Sanitarium Weet-Bix Tryathlon is fun for the whole family, it encourages children aged seven to 15 years to achieve a personal best and the atmosphere and crowd on the day is very exciting for everyone involved,” says Sanitarium general manager Pierre van Heerden. “Sanitarium has been running the tryathlon series in New Zealand for the past 20 years, with the emphasis being on completion rather than competition, and enjoying the experience as part of an active lifestyle.” Every child who participates receives a race pack, t-shirt, a swim cap for all swimmers, certiﬁcate and medal. Entrants can participate in the tryathlon as individuals, or in a team of two or three. Approximate distances covered are a 50-metre swim, 4-kilometre cycle and 1.5km run for seven-year-olds; 100m swim, 4km cycle and 1.5km run for eight to 10-year-olds; and 200m swim, 8km cycle and 1.5km run for 11- to 15-year-olds. The Weet-Bix Tryathlon Series holds the world record for being the largest children’s sporting event in the world, as certiﬁed by the International Triathlon Union. The Auckland event is at Vellenoweth Green, St Heliers, on Sunday, February 24, leaving plenty of time to get some training under the belt. More than 240,000 New Zealand children have taken part in a Sanitarium Weet-Bix Kids Tryathlon. Registrations for the 2013 series and can be completed online at tryathlon. weetbix.co.nz, or by phoning 531-5080.
