    I think given the weather forecast, they are certain to.

    Or the straight ball, back of a length just outside off stump.

    So he's in trouble as long as you can avoid bowling nude medium pace on middle stump.

    how has bob carter kept his job for so long btw? he can't complain about the players he has to work with because these are some of the best you'll get from nz. unless the pitch is flat or the attack isn't very good this lot implode, taylor and watling aside.

    He went wicketless. He only bowled eight overs though.

    He hardly bowled a ball in the first test - just wasn't needed.

    NZ's batting is like a large tent. Collapses easily, but is difficult to re-build.

    so since nz's batting collapses were the fault of taylors captaincy, are 45, 68 and this McCullum's fault?

    i don't think either captain is at fault for this ftr, but applying the same line of argument used by nzc in recent times...

    A batting coach should be able to tell the selectors that Guptill is not test quality right now, and may never be. He's had forever to work on his glaring technical deficiency and just hasn't done anything about it.

    how involved do bowling coaches get with the batsmen?

    bond is both a good coach and bowler. he could give our lot a lot of advice on the numerous holes he would exploit if he bowled to them.

    and i would love to know how some of these guys manage to look good against southee/boult etc in the nets

    Finn's going to need a rest soon, Anderson should be pretty fresh though.
