    She's a 7.75/10 for anyone watching the Dilmah tea party.

    Excellent morning for the kiwis after they might have been expecting a big lead. 68 is nothing given that they should have the best batting conditions of the match and the SA bowlers aren't well rested.

    If they set SA 250+ they have a chance given its tendency to collapse.

    They now need a big innings from someone like Guptill who hasn't been delivering against non-minnows.

    Missed most of this but amazing that we came back to only concede 68 run lead, even if it looked like it could have been less at one stage. Take back anything negative I said about Gillespie being in the side. Arnel though............ both those guys had to be right at their peak to trouble SA and clearly Arnel was not.

    We could easily be 4 or 5 down by the time we pass that 68 though. Our openers are our openers, reckon McCullum is due a failure and Williamson is completely shot of confidence. However I'm going to be positive and predict Taylor and Vettori centuries

    South Africa 4th innings chase = win. Last time they faced a tricky total in the 4th, they one it with ease (that after 20+ wickets fell in a day). I expect similar unless NZ go big (300+) and they should.

    A quick Google search will show she already looks better on live tv than she does in photos.

    They bowled only have the number of overs they normally would in an innings. I think they are sufficiently rested unless of course you are trying to be provocative.

    First wicket will fall at 19.

    Damn. Who would have thought 19 was too optimistic.
