    Maybe 7 inches on Asif. 6'9"-6'10" makes sense.

    Yeah, I'd say that's more like it.

    Doesn't look any taller than Tremlett to me, although the Surrey man looks to maybe stand up straighter in his delivery stride.

    Should be front page news. Get him back in the Test side; should be opening with Southee!

    Still remember Franko hitting 144kph vs WI in 05/06. Heady times.

    I don't really know quite how I feel on grounds in New Zealand. Ones like this are beautiful and maximise the visual experience of watching, but the rugby grounds like the one in Auckland are just not pleasant at all for me.

    Really wish they were playing a test in Hamilton instead of Auckland.

    There is not much of a contest happening when Franko and Ellis are bowling. While it is game on when Nmac and the main seamers are operating.

    Proudly against the bring back Bennett movement since he is injury prone and won't last 5 days.

    They should just play every single game at the Basin Reserve tbh.

    Tremlett 6'8", Finn 6'7", Broad 6'6" imo. Tremlett and Broad rare cases of players being underlisted on cricinfo (although Broad has been described as 6'7"....don't think so, he is shorter than Finn who imo is shorter than Tremlett)

    Really wish we had a proper ground in Auckland. Eden Park is pathetic.
