    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
    Finn keeping to his own bowling is impressive.

    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.

    This.

    New ball bowlers can also have extended spells with a rest overnight.

    I want enough runs to put England under some pressure to avoid the follow-on.

    I want us to have a bat between bowling innings regardless. the time lost will be made up by having fresher bowlers.

    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.

    And he cements his place by picking it up with yet another leg side strangle.

    I don't think I've ever seen a bowler get so many blokes caught behind down the leg side, tbh.

    Wagner-esque 5fer for Finn.

    Slog a few and lets have a bowl already.

    So yeah, how's that declaration for 500 looking?

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

    Edit: I am of course five minutes behind on my 'tv'

    bugger.

    50 odd runs less than what we needed and the timing isn't perfect for the bowlers either.

    Oh well, will still take 440.
