    Don't think we'll enforce follow on, bat again till just after lunch tomorrow and set them 500 to win. Won't want to chase 120-150 on a last day track.

    Yeah but it's not Bond's job to work on the batsmen and it's not his place to suggest batting selections.

    if he has something to add then it should be made a part of his job. obviously he isn't a batsman so what he can add is limited, and i reckon he already has told the batsmen how and why they suck, but on the off chance he hasn't told them the multiple ways he would get them out then he should.

    Well, TBH I'm not in the group of people that think that there's a huge amount of planning that needs to be done against individual batsmen.

    Get it slightly full of a good length on off stump, swinging or seaming in either direction and you'll take wickets.

    You'll just take more wickets against technically deficient batsmen.

    McCullum's captaincy has impressed me.

    I don't think Taylor especially needed axing but maybe he shouldn't have been given the job before.
    Every 5 years we have an election and have to decide who are the least obnoxious out of all the men. Then one gets in and they age really quickly. Which is always fun to watch.

    Yep.

    It was the fourth angle that showed it.

    Always think those kinda calls are tight on the batsman, tbh.

    Still, was clearly pad first.

    "as much a news event as an actual footballer, a worthy stop-start centre forward, but an all-time hyper-galactico when it comes to doing funny things with cars and hats, a player whose signing proves once again that the Premier League is still undoubtedly the best in the world when it comes to doing things with cars and hats."

    Always feel a tad sorry for the onfield umpire in those cases. As Gower said it would almost be irresponsible for them to give it out. One of those situations where you can't help but think they'd review it themselves.

    Clearly wasn't a howler and feel a bit sorry for umpire and batsman there. Guess the correct decision was reached in the end though so all is good.

    Good grab from Bell there.

    So, without wishing to count chickens, to enforce or not?

    29 innings now for Bracewell's single-figure batting average. He's so much better than that; just never makes contributions of any note in Tests. Even when watching him make scores of 0, 3, 1 etc you get the impression that he can bat. Enigma.

    I would for two reasons:

    1 - weather forecast
    2 - chance of finishing the game off tomorrow then while I am still off
