    Yeah, Brownlie's got 45 as well but McCullum and to a lesser extent Williamson did all the hard work. Hopefully he goes on and gets a big one.

    The way they're going they could lead tonight. Odd day from SA though starting with some cavalier batting and the need to declare shortly after lunch on day two.

    And that's that. Pretty ordinary ball to get out to. Just plonked the front foot down the track and missed a straight one. Sigh.

    The father of Boucher's agent was murdered last night so his farewell for tomorrow has been postponed.

    Williamson is no number 3.

    It's nothing to do with the fact that he plays spin well. And I don't care that he's scored a couple of centuries, he's not compact enough.

    Um, yes he is, that's where he's batted since he was 18. And who would you suggest as a replacement?

    I want him at 5 and Flynn at 3.

    Just realised we've already had this conversation, sorry to bring it up again.

    Good start, but I will put my money on a couple of wickets in the last hour of play. I will say down 6 at close of play.

    ****ing commentators.

    It's easy to "fight hard" when your backs are to the wall. There's nowhere else to go.

    The "fight" has to come in the first innings.

    Pessimist.

    Mind you don't think anybody had the whole team down before lunch yesterday!

    Flynn's been moved around enough imo. That being said, if he had to move, I'd much rather him open and take Guptill's spot. He looked good there against South Africa, and has the fight in him to play a similar style to how McCullum played today.

    He's an aussie, I imagine he's well used to the opposition players being ****s.
