    Gah dads gone to bed and taken the sky card out. Can't watch now. Southee and Boult look an excellent pairing though.

    Oh come on! Boult's only 17 or 18 years of age. Franklin's 26/27. Don't start comparing. He hasn't even played first class cricket yet.

    Just cause he's left arm and dropped it short a few times.

    Nick Beard reminds me of Vettori.

    Verma's medium pacers could play a part.

    Nick Beard looks very good as a spinner. Considering he's only the only slow bowler in the line-up, his performance will be key.

    Don't be a drama queen, I merely stated there are shades of Franklin, especially compared with Franklin when he was 19. He may go onto to be a great ODI bowler, who knows. For mine his action suggest he might be more suited to tests.

    There are similarities but Boult looks slightly faster than Jimmy already and has a very accurate yorker, think he gets more swing too. Similar but different so in short, I agree.

    You can tell after a few overs that he's going to be more suited to tests??

    Thank God for the rain, lets put some juice in this wicket and make it more NZ like than India like.

    With the rain -if they can't play today - do they continue from where they left today or start all over tomorrow ?

    I've seen him bowl on a number of occasions now, and yes. There is of course a possiblilty I may be wrong, only time will tell.

    If he played tommorrow, yes. He isn't accurate enough now for ODIs.

    It doesn't matter though because he won't be playing for a couple of years and the accuracy will come in time.

    Hope they son't use the warm up game as the result because then India win.

    How bad is the rain?
