Here's hoping the Wellington influence makes them bat like Wellington did today.Originally Posted by cricinfo
Awesome shot. Terrible shot.
So do we bat for a draw and keep South Africa out there for two and a bit days, or do we declare after the follow on has been reached at some point?
Or do we collapse and lose by an innings?
Second new ball...
Clearly Richards & Bond are the best of the commentary box cricketers, but how would you rank Doull, McMillan, Richardson & Ian Smith as cricketers.... best to worst?
Vettori having a torrid time of it this series so far; hopefully he gets a few.
McMillan was such a ****ing useless ODI batsman. He averaged over 40 in tests for quite a while though.
Big innings for Vettori.
So basically I think declaring is pointless. Rather than hoping for some stupidity from Smith I'd much rather we managed to bat til end of first session tomorrow, thus saving the match. And then we can give our bowlers a crack at the incredibly unlikely task of bowling SA out in 30 overs - it won't happen but it would be worth some respect to even try.
Meanwhile back in reality we are probably two wickets from all out so I wouldn't take the follow on for granted yet.
