    Not convinced by Root on the back foot outside off either. I know he looks great on the cut when he gets it right but he looks equally likely to fend to gully or chop-on at the same time.

    Hopefully we'll get up to 250 and that should be enough.

    Something needs to be done about over rates as well. Appalling.

    Went today, really enjoyed it, the collapse at the end actually made the whole thing rather better.

    A few things:

    Root is really good.

    Martin is not very good.

    Wagner v Trott is a contest I don't wish to see again in a hurry.

    Kane Williamson's action live....

    Also was Bairstow's shot really bad or was it just an excellent ball? Looked a very poor shot from where I saw it.

    the current England lead is right at the boundary of the 50/50 contest. i still think 200+ is advantage england since our batting can fold quite happily very quickly. absolutely imperative we get the last few wickets for about 10 runs.

    then if fulton could defy his own technique again that would be swell. another rutherford ton would also be nice.

    We simply can't let swann get away with a southee'd 30. None of the tail worries me apart from that, though. **** this is incredible cricket.

    Was a great spell for sure.

    I enjoyed his 12 as well, perfectly lived up to his reputation with the bat.

    Came in quite a bit (reverse swing I think) at a very full length, tough ball to get early, but Bluey didn't cover himself in glory with the shot, that's for sure.

    Not sure how serious Bells illness is but you've got a top order batsmen at the crease to worry about before Swann.

    Tail hasn't offered much in any innings of the test so far, so unless its sunny at the start of play I'm not expecting them to get us the 50+ we really need here. Englands best chance of getting a 250 lead is for Finn to put up the wall while Bell makes a patient 40 odd.

    Great test match this.

    I dunno, the ball's not doing much anymore. we're going to have to bowl extremely well to polish off the tail quickly.

    Probably a combination, everybody including Bairstow's dog knew that the field was set up for the ball angled into the pads, especially given his own tendency to play around his front pad. In the end, he just played around a straight ball. It was well executed by Southee and NZ and credit to them.

    Beckham = the most overated footballer EVER!!
    Vassell = the biggest disgrace since rikki clarke!!
