    NZ A throwing away wickets recklessly and India A are pretty happy about it. Young's innings was awful. Rutherford looked pretty good - a little edgy early but from the bits I saw was good after that. Picking him to outscore Latham this season. Long batting lineup with Woodcock and Wells at 7 & 8. Brownlie still there and obviously trying to play himself into some form.

    Haha Kippax, those Woodcock appeals looked very much out, especially the first one.

    Damn.

    It does make the selection of the side easier though.

    Latham is looking absurdly creasebound. Might just be the camera angle tbf. Not liking how he's handling this short stuff either...

    Yeah his footwork was terrible in that clip given he hit a ton.

    I see the glass as half full. That is the 1st time I have seen him off driving. So at least he didn't look like a one side of the wicket player in this clip.

    Worst shot I saw him play was a forward defence to a ball chest high.

    Anyway give him a year and he will be a black cap. If he averages 40 this season in FC they will call him up.

    Proudly against the bring back Bennett movement since he is injury prone and won't last 5 days.

    Haha. Apart from the fact both were blatantly out, especially the first, that is disgraceful behaviour.

    Thanks Daemon. Yep he chopped on Boult coming around the wicket with a ball too close to cut, also not exactly Mark Waugh off his pads I've noticed. Goes nuts from third man through cover on his tour's wagon wheel as you'd expect.

    Wow, Latham doesn't look too comfy against the short stuff, does he? Funny given that anything shorter than half-volley length would be up around his throat.

    Decent effort from Brownlie to get New Zealand past the follow-on, although tbh he kinda had to, given how badly he shafted Rutherford yesterday.

    He must know no matter how well he does in this series, there's no chance he's going to Sri Lanka. And they're going to have issues with him in the future when it comes to the turning ball and sub-continent tracks - or any decent spinner anywhere.

    I saw Brownlie was sent for a ten-day stint in India recently for a crash course in playing spin. Haven't seen enough to know if it's worked. I think Brownlie could have a future in the NZ side however this is the first time he's scored any runs since being dropped - there were another handful of failures earlier this series. Scores tend to suggest it's a pretty flat deck here too.
