    Yes ! I was hoping it would be Jesse ahead of McCullum at 3.

    True but in any case I was talking about the difference between pace in tests and shorter forms in general. If there are pace-friendly pitches they should play him ahead of Tahir who hasn't been that impressive on balance.

    ITSTL. If he bats in a fashion remotely similar to how hes been playing in the Plunkett Shield over the weekend this should be fun. And almost running out Guptill second ball. Dicey stuff Jesse...

    NZ batsmen need to chill out. Why are they trying to win this in 15 overs

    Not a bad first over all things considered and Guptill's wicket. If he grabs a few more I'll know who to blame...

    Not a good time to lose a wicket ...poor option Guptill, especially considering they'd already got a boundary off the over.

    Guptill is a bit of an enigma, he averages 33 in tests with a scoring rate of 44 yet he bats like a madman in the shorter forms. Maybe he's circumspect to his detriment in the longest form.

    SA's line has been so bad. Just incredible how much has been legside.

    Cue McCullum for another painfully constrained innings of a run-a-ball or so before getting out trying to up the rate.

    To stick it up SA because they took 16 to win the other day.

    Agree, but they better not let it get down to 10 off the last either.


    Edit: Glorious stroke Ryder

    Ffs, McCullum is so lead-footed to spinners.
