    That was just **** **** batting from Fulton, from a man who should know better. No swing so he never needed to play that. Gives England a sniff where they shouldn't have had one.

    Meh, Fulton wouldn't have lasted much longer anyway, so I wasn't really bothered by it. I would have be gutted if it was Taylor, Williamson or McCullum.

    To be fair on him, he's just not up to playing at this level, so I don't really blame him. It's the selectors fault.

    If you told me Fulton would average nearly 34 in the series after the second test, I would have taken that.

    Already a conversation between the umpires about the weather but they seem happy to stay out for now. Expect to see Peter Kay running around the boundary proclaiming, "It's spitting! It's spitting!" any minute now...

    That was about five overs ago. Has the weather improved at all since then?

    I don't mind that Fulton has technical problems that will limit his effectiveness as an opener. At this stage of his career he can't help that and just has to live with it.

    I do mind that Fulton repeatedly makes unbalanced prods at the ball outside offstump that he doesn't need to play, that he'd failed to edge the previous one and then decided to go and do it again, when that same shot got him out in the first innings and a similar one in the first test too. LEARN SOMETHING FFS.

    From 16 (78), when Fulton got out, to 33 (93).

    That average doesn't even go close to painting a picture of just how far below test level he's looked though.

    Taylor's form is questionable and 'things' just aren't going right for him at the moment (receiving a jaffa first ball etc) - don't have much hope that he will bail us out here. Feeling a little more confident with Williamson.

    Of course his judgement outside off-stump (or lack of it) along with poor footwork are his main weaknesses, hence why as you put it, he doesn't seem to learn. This has never changed since he starting playing international cricket some 7 years ago.

    **** mate, all I'm saying is he should not be batting at 8 when you've got Bruce Martin below him and in the situation in the first innings he could arguably have been below Wagner too. If you think that was a sensible shot from him then you need an optometrist to look at your one eye.
