    I also suspect it really helps him having Boult at the other end - they're used to bowling together and I think also Boult is quite a clever bowler.


    Haha, yeah. He used to seem like a **** in a sort of slightly pathetic, tryhard way, now he's still a **** but it's more like "I own you, bitch"

    And that includes the ghastly test v SA.

    New ball is definitely swinging more.

    That would've been a peach to a left hander. Boult struggling a little to hit the right lines with the swing.

    if we bowl them out relatively quickly I'd be tempted to bat for a session to give the bowlers a rest then come back at them fresh for the final two or so days

    Yeah, really agree. Southee's swinging the ball now and Matthews looks far more assured against him than any of the other batsmen did when it was gun barrel straight.
