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.
Still reckon Martin will pinch one out 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""
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.
we have an issue here
