    NZ still not safe, lost 10 overs of play today due to rain - will have to start again tomorrow. They will need bat all day tomorrow and post 550+ score to put pressure on SL batsman.

    First time I've been happily sleep-deprived due to the NZ cricket team in a while. Usually when I have to get up at some ungodly hour after staying up to watch a game, I spent the next day surly and bitter.

    While I'm really relieved and overjoyed that these two have managed to do what looked like the impossible last test, will be severely disappointed if Rosco doesn't get a new top score today.

    I am not bothered by the run rate - there is little batting to come after these two so we had to take it slow and steady. I expect us to take the same run rate for the first session today and then if he is still in I expect Ross to go for it after Lunch.

    Has it stopped raining yet...
    I got great enjoyment shouting "WHY THE **** ISN'T THIS GAME BEING PLAYED AT THE BASIN?!>!?!?" to reasonably significant cheers from the sparse crowd
    one day NZ will bring chappell to his knees in a puddle of his own tears and you'll see Phlegm on his belly greedily tasting every delicious tear before watching the hope fade from that old ****s eyes.

    New Zealand Districts?

    And says something for their quality that ND and CD are still two of the best teams in the FC competition.

    Canterbury have really fallen off a cliff after being the backbone of the NZ team for many years. I'm optimistic about some of their current players though.

    Yeah, fully agree about the run-rate. If Taylor and Williamson bat until tea at 2.5 rpo, then they can start thinking about pushing up the pace a little bit. Until then, they should just keep doing what they've been doing.

    Only have to look at England's efforts over the last couple of days to see that as long as you keep wickets in the bank, eventually the run-rate issue will sort itself out.

    I would like for them to bat depending on how Sri Lanka bowl and set fields, just as they did yesterday.

    If they keep bowling defensive fields and ask us to either hit against the turn or take risks, I'd prefer we don't oblige.

    If they bring the fielders up I don't mind a positive skip down the track and hit over long on or a sweep to take the boundary on offer.

    Run rate will be fine. Even when Taylor reins himself in he ticks along at a good rate because he's so good at finding gaps, and this pair are quick between the wickets so that will be worth a few extra runs as well.

    The main thing we want to see is those two at the crease when stumps is called or the declaration made.
