    Is there any game Mills doesn't bowl a no ball these days? So unforgivable in the short-forms of the game. If I was the captain I'd tell him to pull out of his run-in if he feels he's going to be close, Oh that's right.......

    Ah and he floats up a slow half volley.

    A lot of four balls today. I blame Neesham's disgusting facial hair for that one.

    And despite all this, all the other bowlers in the squad would chew your arm off for his figures so far.

    He was in the squad at one point; he's injured now though.

    These two have had enough time to work out that there's no real threat from the two NZ spinners ... suspect they'll go for 70 each today if they manage their full 10. Time for Mills to mix it up.

    Edit - another part time spinner is NOT mixing it up.

    Chew of their own arms I think you meant, not mine. Mills' habit of consistently overstepping in ODIs and T20s is inexcusable and comparing him with mediocrity doesn't change that fact.

    No balls or no no balls, he's taken 4/64 off 14 overs in this series. Those are objectively excellent figures. The fact that he's had no support from any of his other bowlers only makes his efforts so far all the more impressive imo.

    Nicol gives us the Nicol that we know and love.

    Assume some more rain will be along at some point to push this match into its rightful non-match status.

    Bowling no-balls in almost every ODI you play isn't good no matter how you dress it up.
