    Southee's batting is the most over-criticised thing on CW for mine. He's the perfect #9 and he's rarely been given the chance to bat above that.

    Southee definitely better off going the slog (or at least playing positively), as I type he is playing some lovely shots. NZ fans will also be glad to note that C Martin isn't in at 11 either, Boult can score handy runs down their while Wagner is more of a blocker.

    EDIT: Southee plays a stupid shot, should have just left it, but would we be saying that if it came off?

    its because he's so one paced. if we're batting for time for whatever reason he is useless.

    and he's gone.

    Best jinx.

    Reckon he was probably sent out there with orders to do that though.

    I don't really comprehend that inning.

    Why try to hit every single ball for four.
    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.
