    It was the way he smoked it when he came back in that innings that made me think he could be like Astle in the middle order. I think the plan was in 2010 for him to develop his off-spin to better justify his move down the order, but that seems to have been shelved. Can't remember him bowling much in recent times.

    re: Southee in the slips - I agree he looked pretty good there. Anderson & Botham spring to mind as pace bowlers who have been good slippers.

    did they/do they go to fine leg when they're bowling or slip?
    I got great enjoyment shouting "WHY THE **** ISN'T THIS GAME BEING PLAYED AT THE BASIN?!>!?!?" to reasonably significant cheers from the sparse crowd
    one day NZ will bring chappell to his knees in a puddle of his own tears and you'll see Phlegm on his belly greedily tasting every delicious tear before watching the hope fade from that old ****s eyes.
    Overrated XI Warner, Rutherford, Steve Smith, Rahane, Bairstow, Alecz Day, Donovan Grobelaar, Luke Ronchi, Faulkner, Dan Christian, Permaul

    Anderson was going to slip during the most recent NZ series.

    It's okay for gullies and fourth slips but your first three really can't be full time bowlers if you want a trusting and consistent cordon.
