    Needs more pace
    Vettori's quite fast for a spinner tbh. Bet he loves Samuels.

    I'd honestly have taken this if you'd offered it before the start of play. Disappointing that all three wickets have fallen to "pace" though

    Wish this test started yesterday. Yesterday was runs day around the world. Today is definitely wickets day.

    Kinda hilarious that out of the three sides batting currently, at 80/3 NZ is doing the best of them all.

    Taylor in fact has had the best batting year for any Kiwi by a fair margin.

    Watling with a better average. Not in the squad.

    looking at the stats, he's only had 2 50+ scores in 14 innings since zimb test tbf. (lol didn't know zimb had even come here)
    has he not dropped a lot of catches this year too? or was that only in World T20?
