    He was really struggling today and if it is a hamstring then he either misses IPL to be fit for tour or plays IPL and risks missing tour. Good test of his priorities I suppose.
    If he has pulled a hammy its going to be 2 weeks min but he'd risk aggravating further at the IPL.

    Yet another brilliant save! Great knock by Prior and Bell!

    I feel slightly sad for the Kiwis as this series win would have helped them a lot.

    Broad took a bat handle to the throat as well. It's fair to say I've never seen that before.

    Yeah; in today's situation Martin, Patel and Williamson were all going to be bigger threats with the ball than him. Even Tastle, honestly.

    That was an amazing days cricket. A great test match overall. So glad I went to 4 days of it.

    Those last 4 overs. I'll remember that for years.

    Has a pretty good record against tail-enders and Bangladeshis doesn't he? That's the point I was trying to make, that bowling to players of the standard of Broad, Anderson and Panesar, he might have been useful.

    Obviously some here don't agree.

    Vettori deserves a last chance to prove himself, its been a long time since he was on the international stage who knows what could have changed

    I think Craig Spearman should be recalled based on the same logic.

    Have to say Matty really had his fair share of spawn in the knock, tbh.

    Was an absloute peach of a bumper that ended up hitting (& pretty fulsomely) his stumps without dislodging the bails. Play that if you can!

    Interesting call for our selectors if KP isn't fit for the first test up here. Bairstow's position must be in question.

    Where do we go? Stick? Back to Morgan? Buttler, even?

    "as much a news event as an actual footballer, a worthy stop-start centre forward, but an all-time hyper-galactico when it comes to doing funny things with cars and hats, a player whose signing proves once again that the Premier League is still undoubtedly the best in the world when it comes to doing things with cars and hats."

    Depends on early season form. Feel for Bairstow, no cricket in ages and then shoved in a test match and expected to shine. Reminds me of Anderson all those years ago.

    Gah i said that really badly. What i meant was that as one of the stalwarts of NZ cricket, even if his best is behind him, he should get one last chance to prove himself capable, just like Cartin did in SA. Of course Bartin shouldn't be shunted out just to make room for him, but imo he should get another go sooner rather than later.
