    Stroke of good fortune there, those two were really starting to look settled. Time to bring Southee or Boult back.

    It's certainly ugly but I think his arm, although bent, doesn't straighten much. And if he is chucking it he could at least do us the service of chucking it at 140ks

    Edit: Just looked it up and that was McMillan's second to last test.Can't believe that's already 7 years ago

    Haha, and here's cricketweb for that series: **Official** New Zealand v Australia. Good post by Ed:

    127/8. Oh dear.

    I've slowly come to that conclusion as well, but jeez it looks awful. Can't believe no-one in an official capacity has mentioned it. I recall Simon Doull once mentioning Ellis' action in a very unsubtle manner during a domestic game.

    Would be a fitting end to this series if this was rained off. Going to bed

    They should just agree to give NZ half a win and let the Kiwis go home until a proper Test series can be scheduled.

    And that's it. Worst tour ever?

    Sucks that we had SL on the ropes today, though in saying that, I'm actually surprised that I'm not more annoyed than I am. Don't know whether that's a sign of my growing ambivalence towards ODIs or that I pretty much expected it to happen. Desperately hope the test series doesn't go the same way; probably wishful thinking though.

    Well that was predictable. Good to see Southee and Boult hitting the right areas ahead of the first test though. Milne to take 500 test wickets at 22 with his blistering 103 kmh pace.

    That speed radar was terrible. It said Boult bowled a 63kph ball at one stage. Slowest opening bowling in any senior grade cricket ever?

    Very promosing spell by Milne. Still a bit erratic with the full tosses - but some genunine wicket taking deliveries in there and the wicket of Sanga.

    I hope he develops into a legit limited overs bowler as his next step.

    2) See point 1.
