    They're changing the ball after only three overs? That's nuts.

    the optics of this is that the just complain until they get one that swings.
    I got great enjoyment shouting "WHY THE **** ISN'T THIS GAME BEING PLAYED AT THE BASIN?!>!?!?" to reasonably significant cheers from the sparse crowd
    one day NZ will bring chappell to his knees in a puddle of his own tears and you'll see Phlegm on his belly greedily tasting every delicious tear before watching the hope fade from that old ****s eyes.

    Is Afridi hiding in the pavilion biting each one before they come out?

    Need to indulge in some running on the pitch here. Still the flattest deck I've seen in a while.

    Not a bad catch from Williamson.

    Also chuffed to not see a wicket fell when i got home.
    Would almost rather they were in their shells trying to block everything then we can crowd the batsman with close catchers.

    nah we want them trying to drive Southee and Boult. They're already going to be dubious about attack (barring Dilshan who will always attack ofc) as it is due to the match situation and what we have done to them with the new ball. We need to give them a fair chance of victory so we can nab 2-3 first up.

    And again. Cricket needs to get some tougher balls.

    Declare with 10-20 overs to go tonight.

    Get as many runs as possible by then.

    300 isn't nearly enough. We can easily get to 370-380 with 20 overs left in the day. Declaring with 300 odd would mean there'd be 50 overs left today, and the entire fifth day to get through.

    Very happy they wrapped up the tail so quickly. Top effort from Southee and Boult, and a couple of lovely catches by Guptill and Williamson. Time for Sri Lanka to change their ball supplier?

    Guptill didn't need to play there. Poor shot.

    Brilliant indeed, didn't realise Williamson was capable of such athleticism truth be told.


    Edit: Damn it Guptill, so much for the master-stroke of resting him prior to the test matches.
