    Yeah Bracewell just isn't a very good 20/20 bowler, really struggles to hit the blockhole.

    That's it, have two of our least likely batsmen to make an impact eat up loads of deliveries up top. Great plan.

    yay boundaries

    I think the whole point of Nicol is to be a bit like Lumb for England, and just swing from the hip. If the bowling's too good for him and he gets out then it doesn't matter much as long as he doesn't waste deliveries, and once in a blue moon it might come off if the bowling is poor. Someone forgot to tell Nicol this though I reckon.

    Argh, Nicol is sooooooo bad. Random slog, block, random slog, block. random slog, get out. South Africa must love seeing him walk out to the middle.

    Gawd, Nicol is so awful to watch.

    Actually, could stop that sentence at 'awful'. Also, was that number 69 on Phangiso's shirt? If so, congrats to him, he earns instant **** status.

    Yeah it's horrible when he uses up deliveries like a proper batsman

    Says it all really.

    It's interesting how much NZ's odds have shortened from the innings break, even though they've gotten off to a pretty sedate start and Nicol is still batting.
