    Nah he played the wrong line, but that's what your legs are for ffs. Should have at least been a back leg lbw. First rule of batting - protect your castle. With his stance and follow through off stump is ripe for the taking if he plays the wrong line or is beaten by pace.

    Can't watch right now but can see Guptill getting dismissed like that in my mind's eye. I expected him to struggle to play spin in SL like he did in India, but to be out twice early to seamers is not great. Sounds like SL are bowling well though.

    I wouldn't even mind if we'd stuck with the grafters like Redmond and Cumming etc.

    Watling could open IMO. reasonably compact.

    Did I hear that right - Macka helped Kane this morning?

    Yeah he's ****ed.

    bat with intent and anything below 140kph, including spinners, go for six

    Macka was a FTB - no way would he score on this.

    I'd love it if we could replace Guptill but imo we should hold off until a domestic opener is really racking up the runs and averaging 45. Rutherford's promising but very new. Also as was clear yesterday, Guptill's our best slipper. He will go to South Africa regardless I'd say - it's no place to debut an opener.

    Kane is not feeling it yet. Needs to battle through this period.
    1) Ross is Boss.
    2) See point 1.

    Leading the charge against nuances being used in posts.

    Overrated XI M Bracewell, Burns, Rahane, Don Voges, Bairstow, Alecz Day, Donovan Grobelaar, Luke Ronchi, Faulkner, Dan Christian, Permaul

    Watling was impressive in the ODIs, not sure if he's good enough at test level

    As a six or keeper/seven, perhaps. No better than Guptill as an opener - probably worse.

    It was like his dismissal in the first innings.

    See full ball -> attempt straight drive. Played inside the line. This time it took out off stump.

    Uh oh, always a lottery these ball changes. Worth keeping the pacers on to see if the new rock moves.

    Hrmm yeah - first innings he was hitting to mid-on and that was part of the problem. Got in such a mess he may have clipped his pad with bat.

    btw welcome to the site

    Oh FFS there goes Williamson

    Just wasn't showing enough positivity Williamson. I am sure he would have 10 overs from now. But when he got that loose ball he didn't punish it instead he fiddled with it and he's out.
