The best bet would've been to look to knock them over with our best bowlers before they became established. Reckon the result is 50:50 now.
    That's exactly what happened to England in the first innings, the ball swung and the wickets fell like ninepins.

    Quiet start but I'm not worried yet. I will be if we don't get a wicket within the first ten overs of the new ball though.

    That was a really good over from Wagner.

    Yeah, you're going to struggle to rip through competent players on this pitch with a 60+ over old ball. New nut will be key.

    Yep, and Martin's found a better length also. Good pressure here.

    And here am I again, wasting another precious night of sleeptime to suffer through innocuous bowling by New Zealand in the 4th innings. It wasn't enough that time with Misbah, no, now there's Bell looking good for a 450 balls 30.

    **** me dead.

    On the other side, no team is quite as good to heroically salvage a draw on the last test of the series when they are already 1-0 down (vs india, sa). Strenghts and weaknesses.

    It's the pitch, stupid.

    Have the feeling this might be a long night.

    If we get to lunch unscathed, through the first few overs of the new ball, I'll dare to believe.

    Just read this in the guardian review of yesterday's play. Loved it.

    "Once again they were monstered by McCullum, who should become the threat of choice for errant children: "Be quiet or Brendon McCullum will come and belt your attempted yorker into the stands""

    But it wasn't against batsmen who'd been established at the crease for hours, it was first thing in the morning, before they'd adjusted to the conditions and gotten their eyes in.

    Sigh, I'm going to be wealthy tonight aren't I?

    Personally I hope he waits until the lunch break and does it behind closed doors like the rest of us.

    as a Melbournian, love the fact the bbc commentator just paid out Aggers for thinking a flat white was equivalent to a cappuccino.
    'It is hard to recall a batsman quite so serene, so unrushed, so unflappable.' Chris Ryan on ... look to the left. Ahhhh.
