    Jeets is the key to getting Mathews out early and really putting Sri Lanka in the mire. I really like this bowling change but as Bahnz pointed out, his role here is quite different to the one he's played to a reasonable standard of late so he needs to needs to toss it up outside off. That last ball he bowled in that first over should be his stock ball for this spell.

    It seems like the umpire's have decided it's too dark for pace, but either way this is a waste of the swinging ball.

    Good fielding to keep the pressure on, if nothing else.

    First Tastle over as expected - a few flighted balls on target and a couple of pies (that the batsman missed out on)

    Tbf he's probably asked for it. The last thing a debutant spinner wants is to get tonked for 12 from the over while he finds his groove.

    Yeah, try hitting those footmarks from round the wicket to Parana. "Would you like jitterbug appealing with that?" Yes, yes I would.

    Can Astle really hope to be effective bowling 2 full tosses per over?

    Could see that coming and not unhappy we're going off, as the ball will still be newish for the seamers in the morning.

    Anyway, what a ****ing fantastic day

    Stumps. Really think that New Zealand shouldn't have bothered with those last 5 overs. Ah well, good stuff all around.

    Yeah. Probably a good way to ease Astle into the game though. Very little chance either of them were going to attack him with just a couple of overs left.

    Anyway another good (thanks to Southee and Boult) day. Southee's rhythm is just so good at the moment, swing, pace, bounce. Good luck.
