“Fuck you, fuck you, fuck you all”
That is rougly what Daniel Vettori said after Ryan Sidebottom’s tackle of Grant Elliott that almost cost New Zealand a close game.
It was probably the closest i have ever felt to him.
It was glorious pure victorious rage.
This is what he said after Haddin’s creative wicket keeping.
“I think you saw from Haddin’s reaction that he knew something was wrong so he probably should have made more noise about it,” Vettori said of Broom’s dismissal.
“I suppose (I’m disappointed) because I thought it was a partnership that was going to win the game so it put us under more pressure.
“But we are pretty pleased to get there in the end. It was a nice way to finish. Moral victory or not, it was just great to get the win.”
It’s not quite the same.
Perhaps the Punter might like to take captaincy lessons from him?
I think he could have felt justified by saying “Fuck you Haddin you dirty little cheating bastard.”
Especially straight after hitting the winning runs, i would have been tempted to turn around and give Haddin a full moon.
Maybe NZC has given Daniel anger management lessons since the English tour.
