    Beautiful.

    Good decision by McCullum. Even a lollapse will see us defending around 350.

    Southee deserved that last wicket.

    Solid performance from the whole bowling unit. Only Wagner not looking at his best.

    These pitches really are batting paradises aren't they.......

    Agree with the decision to not inforce the follow-up. Set England 450+ for the win and watch Brucie bowl us to victory.

    Yeah, been brilliant today.

    Actually sort of happy that they are batting again, could have got really very embarassing by close of play.

    Haha just saw Boult's reaction when the umpire gave Compton not out. Just started giggling knowing he's out and he will get him on review

    Kinda nasty to say this since he's done so well but he's the kind of bowler who will have absolute shockers sooner or later and he'll be dropped. With the bowling talent around atm he won't get too many chances if he ****s up imo.

    I can definitely go for Fulton and Rutherford scoring as many runs as they like, even if Fulton looks like he's going to get out every ball for the first hour he's batting.

    I'm really happy for Fulton that he's scoring runs; I've always wished him well as a player due to his standing in domestic cricket. He's a bit like Sinclair-lite. I just don't really like watching it, especially when it's against England.

    TAB says

    NZ - 1.80
    Draw - 2.00
    Eng - 20.00

    Money has to be on NZ now, surely...

    In fact, just put $50 on it.

    Think this says it all:

    England 154 for 8 today, New Zealand managed 193 for 9 on day two.

    We only need 200 runs I tend to think, so we should have 4 and a half sessions to dismiss England.

    Wonder what NZ were paying before the series started for a series win.

    Was a lot to admire about Fulton in the first innings even if I hated every minute of it, will score about 2 runs in the England series though.

    And surely this pitch is going to get more up and down, and turn more... Surely!

    Was out, just got back - Boult **** yeah! Southee too - by far his best bowling of the series. I thought Wagner bowled reasonably well too today tbh - did some donkey-work with the old ball and was reasonably accurate.
