    Don't worry adders, full credit to the bowlers for that one too. Nothing we could do.

    edit: okay I'm now being more of a **** than normal, time to sleep it off

    Yeah, very good bowling performance that. Always good when the bowlers aim up in a situation where you're one good partnership away from an arse clenching finish.

    Yet another occasion when this attack has bowled a side out for less than 100. They do it too often for it to be luck.

    Also, Southee is turning into a bowler isn't he? I recall he was promising early then had a few mediocre years with injury and form. NZ are one genuinely very good top order player away from being a very decent side IMO.

    What an embarrassment, what can we do besides giving young Latham a crack?

    You don't have to deal with Ian Botham sitting next to you though. Brutal.

    I think they are already, maybe one top order player away from being a very very good side. They have an attack to cause any side problems. How did Finn end with more wickets than Boult in this game?

    LOL so true Ian Smith. They spent a whole morning analysing the impact Swann would have on a wearing pitch with footmarks.

    In the end Swann wasn't used.

    Is there any other bowler in history like Broad? One minute he is Martin McCague and the next he is Curtley Ambrose. Needs to turn it on more often but when he gets it right he is deadly.

    WTF Atherton don't talk about "comedic end" to McCullum when he's a shattered captain.

    McCullum looks in a terrible state.

    So he should, threw away a great chance to win a test at Lord's. At least it shows he cares.
