    Mortaza has found the keys to the larder, eh?

    Hasn't had any injuries recently, has he? What's his excuse this time?

    Oh, shot from Guppy. Magic pick up. His leg side play as attractive as anyone's, IMHO.

    "as much a news event as an actual footballer, a worthy stop-start centre forward, but an all-time hyper-galactico when it comes to doing funny things with cars and hats, a player whose signing proves once again that the Premier League is still undoubtedly the best in the world when it comes to doing things with cars and hats."

    Proudly against the bring back Bennett movement since he is injury prone and won't last 5 days.

    All the talk about Sri Lanka pitches offering a little more pace, in Australia vs Ireland that was somewhat apparent and in Pallekele it's supposed to be true. Yet predictably and despite no apparent assistance for the bowlers, as soon as the slow bowlers come on NZ batsmen look completely incompetent.

    Playing Razzak like he's Bishin Bedi doesn't help the NZ cause either.

    Don't think he moved one off the straight and not a lot in the way of overspin either. Looks ripe for positive intent from the batsmen.

    Nice little shot off the back foot from McCullum, there.

    Yeah the Guptill bowled was just a straight nothing-ball really. Franklin apparently opening for this reason - wonder if he'll look to hit straight over the top.
