    But it takes up time to take the ball and then move it onto the stumps. It's a much quicker and smother process to take it in front and move it with the momentum of the ball than vice-versa.

    Boult hasn't been good this morning. Comms were talking earlier about the possibility of a leg slip - seriously might be worth a shot for an over or two.

    As I say that, Bell plays and misses outside off.

    The fastest way to take the bails is with the hands marginally in front of the stumps, then using the momentum of the ball and your body position to direct it back onto the stumps. Take the ball above or behind the stumps, and your wrists and glovework have to be superhuman to avoid time delay and useless, counterproductive movement away from the stumps before you then have to initiate the movement back to the stumps.

    Actually, the more I watch Watling the more I notice how close he tends to take the ball to his chest. Wonder how much that will affect him in England when the ball starts wobbling.

    I guess that does make sense, provided the keeper has good enough judgement to leave the direct hits. Though that would take insane split-second decision making. Would be interesting to see the overall cost/benefit of the technique.

    Southee generally just starting everything slightly too wide.

    Southee! Looks a different bowler this morning. That almost looked like a hint of reverse - just drifted back in.

    Lands one perfectly though and gets it to jag back! Only question was height - reckon if Bell had reviewed it would be just clipping the bails. Will wait and see..

    Boult was saying that the plan was to have them 80/4 and go from there.

    65/4 = WIN!

    2outhee!

    Decided to watch his action closely on the ball that happened to just get that wicket - thought "yep, looks better than Wellington at least on this ball" and boom wicket 2 tenths of a second later.

    He is sloppy two balls every over though.

    Well I think it's fair to say we are well and truly in the s**** now.

    Congrats NZ, outclassed us with bat and ball.
