    Slice of luck there for Guppy. In spite of my ongoing disdain for guys presence in the team, I really hope he makes the most of it.

    Also good work Watling. Though it does remind me a little of how another wicketkeeper batsman of ours used to whack fifties when the match was already lost.

    I like Guptill, I really do. It pains me that he's so incredibly rubbish at opening in Tests.

    He'll improve though. I get the feeling he'd sell his grandmother to Romanian gypsies to succeed at Test level.

    Peterson bowling to McCullum makes me nervous.

    Watling
    Brownlie
    Williamson
    McCullum
    Guptill
    Any NZ batsman that shows a smidgeon of promise down the order is immediately punished by being mooted as potential opener. Brownlie and Flynn too. In the paper the other day someone (Ian Snook I think) wanted to go the whole way and swap our 1,2,3 with our 4,5,6

    Just noticed that Kleiny has a badly mixed action. Needs some work with Pickup.

    These defensive shots from Guptill are just so ugly and amateur looking

    Yeah I remember this well. Problem was his pull/hook wasn't just slightly wrong - needed to be completely reworked as he could only swing from low to high and it was a physical impossibility from there to keep it down. So six or out. He did hit a few sixes though.

    Really should've been giving Williamson a twirl on this pitch if ****ing Peterson is turning a few

    Remember Guptill pulling Akhtar for an absolute monster 6 at Eden Park on Boxing Day 2010. Almost went completely out of the ground and the side boundaries are ok length there.

    I wish the commentators would shut up about McCullum's SR. It's about batting time and patience at the moment. Make the South African bowlers ****ing tired, and then cash in.
