    Nah he's always been an out and out swing bowler, just lost it the last few months.

    Given that most of SA's top order aerage more than NZ's total, I don't think they have too much to worry about.
    Eh?

    CricInfo are saying that SA referred it. They're probably wrong though.

    Reckon Boult could trouble both batsmen here if he can find some consistent in-swing.

    There's a huge difference between acknowledging the difference Taylor would've made in the batting line up, and using his absence as the reason for why we were bowled out for 45. That's what Hurricane is doing, and I disagree with him. I'm not a Hesson fan at all. Taylor should absolutely still be captain.

    I first saw him in the Champions league with CD, he seemed to get swing then, but since then he seemed to be a more into the deck seam bowler. Trying to think back to his match winning spell against Aust as to whether he got more wickets due to seam or swing. I can't recall.

    Good to see Dougie get one early. Hopefully the Boult/Bracewell combo can do some damage here.

    Well that deck was a greenie, so it was both iirc, but domestically his main weapon was always swing. It's only since coming into the Black Caps that the hit the deck traditional third seamer role has been trialled with him.

    Hey all, I just woke up from a nightmare where we were bowled out for 45.

    How's the real match going?
    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

    Both. Some deliveries would swing like the one that got Huss, others jagged sharply like the one to castle Lyon.

    Philander's record is so ridiculously awesome. 72 wickets @ 16.83.
