    btw welcome to the site
    Thanks.

    Batsmen making the sri lankan swing bowlers look amazing.

    Good test for Taylor. I'm also a big fan of Flynn.

    Why am I always so optimistic? I'm a sucker for punishment I guess.

    Jesus, Williamson better find some form quickly or else he'll be lucky to pass double figures once in South Africa. He looks like a shell of himself, poking and proding, horrible stuff to watch.

    Williamson could probably benefit from a couple of FC games against one of the better attacks, or maybe a shift to 6 with Flynn up to 3.

    Yep, was given two or three half volleys on his pads this morning and merely tapped them towards short mid wicket. Can't fault him though with regards to his form, he's basically the New Zealand mascot at the moment, travelling around and getting to do SFA.

    Anyway, if Flynn can get a ton here he's a lock for the summer. Neither quick is anything he hasn't seen at the FC level and he was competent against spin in his last run in the side.

    His main problem now he seems more comfortable against in swing is the number 49 and the 90s.

    I'll bite - stop moving Williamson and Flynn around the order

    Carl Cachopa for 3. There's my knee-jerk for the afternoon.

    Except Flynn doesn't have the game to bat at three, too loose, too much of a slasher.

    New Zealand just have to stop ****ing Williamson around, bat him at three in the one day team and don't select him at all for the bloody 20/20 crap. While he was off at the World Cup batting at eight New Zealand were busy playing an "A" series against India, should've been playing in that AFAIC.

    Other ****s Watch

    Brownlie currently 52* against Gillespie, McKay et al
    Ryder out for 1 to Andy Ellis

    At least Milne and Wheeler ripped ND a new one.

    I wouldn't call his game loose. He has got out slashing a few times though. Still, I like how late he plays the ball.

    agree with this. for the life of me I can't understand why you'd move Williamson from 3 in ODIs and Taylor from 4 and McCullum from opening.

    Excellent teasing bowling from Herath but nice to see the NZ batsmen finding the singles.

    Am a fan of Flynn too but would definitely call this current version of him loose. First time he was in the NZ team he had the discipline to put away a lot of attacking shots to try to make a success of himself as a grinder (and it didn't work). But since his return almost every time he's been dismissed it's been to an attacking stroke - that slash in particular he plays compulsively - the SL bowlers surely knew that and kept tempting him outside off in the first innings until he cracked, slashed at it and edged behind.

    Not agreeing or disagreeing - but just observing he has shelved the sweep so far.

    Proudly against the bring back Bennett movement since he is injury prone and won't last 5 days.

    true.
    at least he'd bring a left hander to the top order. Need something to break up the rhythm of the bowlers when players like Guptill et al get bogged down.

    Lovely bowling again from Herath.
