    Need to get stuck in to Mathews. Innocuous.

    New rule may suit Williamson if batting at #5, can't clear the boundary like Taylor, but good placement, now more chance of 2s and 3s during overs 25 - 45.

    Watling actually looks better than Nicol imo, but he just keeps hitting the ball crisply to fielders, which is basically how he bats.

    This isn't a bad start actually. 3.5 up until this point is decent.

    Not surprised that Watling looks better than Nicol - almost anyone does. Nicol doing a reasonable job here though

    Is it though? With the new fielding restrictions its tough to know what is or isn't a good run rate.

    Mendis has bowled a ton of long-hops so far and there has been no intent at all to put them away.

    If Nicol got right of his Biggles mo would he be a better player?

    Not terrible from Nicol, though he still only has one fifty vs proper teams.

    I guess the plan is to put 230-240 on the board and then hope our seamers get as much movement as SL's and try to knock over their top order.

    Easily safe. Square leg umpires don't often back themselves to make the call any more, do they?
