    Williamson the key now - if he gets out we're no hope.

    Proudly against the bring back Bennett movement since he is injury prone and won't last 5 days.

    Dammit, just when we were looking comfortable.

    Elliott's return has been way better than I thought it would be though. His FC career was almost dead and buried a couple of months ago.

    He's very quickly onto the pull shot today and looks a little Crowe-like there imo

    OK, McCullum, time to put your money where your mouth is. You said batting down the order was best for the team, so you'd better prove it.

    I dunno, Williamson's playing at pretty much every ball now.

    I'm not actually criticising Williamson, I think both he and Trott played well

    -Has Williamson opened his stance since SA?
    -Watching these two run between the wickets will be a treat if McCullum is keen to bring back his 2005-2007 days.

    Yeah, I know you're not man. I'm just saying he's definitely accelerating now.

    That edge dropping short proves Woakes doesn't have the pace for international cricket.

    Word is that Mitchell McClenaghan is expected to be out of the rest of the ANZ Series.

    On cue Smith blames Bell/Trott/Root for playing good innings and the fact that the rest of the batsmen were hopeless
