Scoring at a typical South African pace at the moment. Still no wickets though, and these aren't county level openers. I'd be worried if I was McCullum.
can't buy a wicket.
Can certainly give one away though
Is all but confirmed now I suppose. God I hope Franklin can score some runs, I'd glady take that over seeing Colin ****ing Munro pick up a test cap.
Boult really taking some tap in his second spell.
Ok, correct me if im wrong, and i havent searched the whole thread for this, but the Sa v NZ tests arent being broadcast, even in SA? Host broadcaster has declined to telecast,not worth their effort, apparently.
Pretty disappointing bowling effort so far, though I suppose you could argue that it's the bowlers getting overs under their belt that counts. Feel a bit for Bruce Martin, it's his first NZ tour and he's only bowled 4 overs - a 3 over spell and then one before lunch. Has gone for 24 in those overs, but you think you'd give a new bowler, particularly a spinner, the chance to settle, no?
50 overs in and still no wicket. This is going to be such a fun series :happy:
