    Foxtel covering this, **** yes.

    Weird that Guptill isn't playing tbh unless he's been rested. Surely he's not been dropped for publicly supporting Rosco...

    Yeah. I still think McCullum not opening in T20 is pretty stupid though.

    I've always liked Fulton anyway even though I don't think he should be tour; easy man to cheer on and wish well. Footwork definitely looking at least marginally better than it was during his last international stint too.

    Batting first? Dammit. Wanted to see us bowling.

    Nicol looking expectedly assured against Steyn

    Really? My immediately thought was that his footwork (or lack of it) was exactly the same as I remember.

    His footwork is still really bad, but in his last stint it became a complete parody. His feet are moving more akin to how they did right at the start of his international career - ie. not anywhere near ideal but enough to impersonate a batsman if you transfer your weight well and have an eye like a dead fish.

    Fulton and Nicol looked so bad against Steyn. Quite funny really; didn't realise international batsmen get intimidated quite that much.

    more to do with not being good enough than intimidation

    I've never understood this phrase. If someonee has an eye like a dead fish then they shouldn't be able to see at all because they're dead.

    Like Nicol's test career *zing!*
