    I was honestly surprised at the turn he was getting. Drives home that the main reason (imo) he was kept on the sideline so long was because he happened to be SLA like Vettori.

    You wonder if Bartin was bowling a lot of very full blockhole filth in Auckland because of the upwind duty at the Basin tbh.

    It looked to me like when he bowled too full it was because he was just trying to "put it there" as opposed to getting plenty on it and getting drift, dip and turn etc. Then he'd overcompensate and put too much on it and drag it down.

    When you're bowling in the situation he was, knowing the batsman won't be coming at you too much, it's so easy to think you just need to land it and you'll get the result - even for a guy with his experience at the FC level.

    The theory from Coney and the comments team was that it was that it was apparently quite hard to see where the footmarks were from the bowlers end, and he was having issues trying to land it in them.

    He was trying to hit the footmarks instead of just as he had bowled through the rest of the series. Nice theory.
