Finn keeping to his own bowling is impressive.148.2
Finn to Southee, OUT, wicket for England early after tea, and Southee's important cameo is over, makes room to steer a short ball over slip, finds the keeper
TG Southee c & b Finn 44 (33b 4x4 2x6) SR: 133.33
Damn. A very useful innings from Southee, though now he's out I can't see us getting 500 and still getting a bowl tonight. Maybe 480. Watling needs to increase his scoring rate.
Finn with a chance to produce a candidate for "the worst 5fer ever" contest here.
The lush, sand-based, outfield and no wicket block - has probably cost about 50 runs in 4s only being 2s.
This could be negated by the child-sized straight boundaries - but do t remember any straight 6s this innings. Just a Fulton top edged hook for 6 that I can remember where the sort straight boundary gave any gift runs.
Greatest Ever Test XI: JB Hobbs, L Hutton, DG Bradman (c), IVA Richards, BC Lara, GS Sobers, AC Gilchrist (wk), Imran Khan, RJ Hadlee, MD Marshall, SK Warne 12th man: M Muralitharan
Favorite XI: WG Grace, VT Trumper, IVA Richards, DCS Compton, FMM Worrell (c), AC Gilchrist (wk), CL Cairns, SK Warne, FS Trueman, SE Bond, T Richardson 12th man: H Larwood

Brocky on Martin Guptill and Ish Sodhi. 20/11/2014.
Watling's playing a bit of a Chanderpaul innings here. Needs to step it up in this partnership, and with Boult if he's still there.
Another useful few runs and out, this time from Martin. I still want at least 480. C'mon Watling.

If he edged this then Bahnz is right - terrible five-fer

50 odd runs less than what we needed and the timing isn't perfect for the bowlers either.
Oh well, will still take 440.
