    NZ vs SA at Eden Park from the last tour.

    Styris 170 in 2004?

    NZ vs SA second test back in 04. Styris and Cairns got 150s and Chris Martin got eleven wickets for the match.

    Did Cairns also make a hundred? Oram with a 90?

    Awesome to hear the conversation between the umpires and the groundsman there. First time I've seen a mic on that sort of convo.

    When Astle was in team that was probably one of our strongest ever batting line ups. Oram, McMillan, Richardson and Styris all averaging over 40 at the time + Fleming, Astle and Cairns.

    2.40pm: Aargghhh, this is horrible. Some light rain has returned and the covers are back on again. 45 minutes of utter confusion. And it's getting heavier.

    2.35pm: Some hope again as the rain has stopped, and the covers are coming off, again.


    2.30pm: This is getting difficult, the rain has returned and so have the covers. Extremely frustrating, this.

    2.20pm: Good news, the rain has stopped. The covers are coming off.







    Wouldn't be surprised if there was no more play today.
    Greatest Ever Test XI: JB Hobbs, L Hutton, DG Bradman (c), IVA Richards, BC Lara, GS Sobers, AC Gilchrist (wk), Imran Khan, RJ Hadlee, MD Marshall, SK Warne 12th man: M Muralitharan

    Yeah, definitely. But we still had the same trouble at the top - Richardson never really had a long-term opening partner in his career.

    Fleming opened with Richardson a few times in that period. Solid, but a waste of Fleming's talent, tbh.

    Kiwis will be well pleased with their position. There didn't appear to be too many demons in the pitch and Steyn's pace was down again.
