How much do New Zealand need to improve to foot it with Australia? Plenty, writes David Leggat in the New Zealand Herald.
The gulf between Bangladesh and Australia is as wide as it gets in the international game. It's all very well for New Zealanders to grumble about seeing too much of Bangladesh, and not enough of, say South Africa or England.
New Zealand's position is not such that they can demand more frequent activity against the more moneyed, and successful nations. We are not that good right now and therefore have little appeal to those whose minds are preoccupied with making a buck.
