    This is now the highest 3rd wicket partnership against Sri Lanka in Sri Lanka for all teams.
    Direbirds FTW!

    right so that was awesome. the openers sucked but that's expected, and tbf to baz he was sawn off. these two - where was that last test?

    pitch is a road atm so we need to bat all day tomorrow and hopefully on the last few days the pitch deteriorates.

    Bah, typical. Stupid rain. That'll be it for the day you'd think.

    Great batting by these two, but we still need a lot more. Pitch seems pretty flat, no seam movement that I've seen and it's not turning too much either. If we want to win (haha) we'll need to make a huge first innings score (lol) and then rely on scoreboard pressure to make the SL batsmen panic.

    Probably stating the obvious here, but the rest of our batting looks decidedly dodgy, so would like double tons from both of these two please. Also, cbf looking, but is this the longest innings Taylor has played? 241 balls atm, I seem to remember all his other centuries have been scored pretty quickly.

    Was anyone realistically expecting a full day of play in Sri Lanka anyway?
    85.5
    Boult to Mathews, OUT, Caught at second slip! It was a length ball going across Angelo, who tried to hit it hard towards the leg side and got an outside edge that flew fast towards Guptill, who took a reflex catch in front of his face

    Yeah, I actually made a disparaging comment the other day about taylor being unable to bat for 250 balls, so obviously this is really pleasing. Would still like to see him and Kane pick up a few more 1s and 2s, but given the shambles of the last test, I can understand the conservative approach.

    I was quite happy to see the rain. I think Taylor and Williamson were too. Press the reset button overnight. We need them to go on.

    Awesome stuff from these two. Really pleased for them both.

    Also, 'Andrew' commenting on cricinfo
    "While I am happy to see New Zealand batsmen occupy the crease, I am frustrated at the snails pace they are going along at," a hard-to-please Andrew says.

    just realised how much CD and ND dominate this team numbers wise. need to come up with a joint name to refer to the NZ side from now on.

    Stag Knights is my contribution. thank you and goodnight.
