    Ugh. You get the feeling the first innings was a bit of an anomaly and England will shut us out for the remaining tests. Unless we get some helpful conditions, can't see this England side collapsing in a heap again that easily.

    Payne would probably be a great CW poster but he's clearly not a commentator's back side.

    Dear God, this is mind-numbingly tedious.

    Someone give me one good reason to stay awake...?

    Was hoping for one of you guys to give me the reason, rather than some Saffer cast-off...

    Well I guess one positive we can take is we kept KP quiet two innings in a row. Last thing we needed was for him to cash in today and bring some form in to the next test.

    England have this all wrapped up here so Bell will make 80 odd not out.

    True. And let's hope it lasts. If he's in form going into the Eden Park match, dear lord, there'll be carnage.

    BTW I know he's injured with a niggle, but does anyone think the extra outswing pace of Milne would have made a difference in removing some tail end batsmen faster in this test, or is the pitch just too slow?

    I'd be pretty surprised if he doesn't make the touring party to England in some form provided he's fit.

    That little Marshall look-a-like seems like he's having a brilliant time.
