    Yeah, if we don't get at least 4 in the morning session the match is lost.

    He's been our best bowler for this match and the one before, that's all tbh.

    For some reason people think he did well in SA. NFI why.

    Yeah, Zak needs to go. Especially seeing as we actually have several promising young seamers for once.

    Too add to that, Dhawan has to be one of those wickets, will likely score 60-70 runs himself if he bats the entire session. That said, NZ can't bowl any worse to him than they did this arvo. Have absolutely no clue what that short-wide rubbish outside off-stump with no 3rd man was about.

    no reason to panic yet. As we saw in the West Indies game, for whatever reason the swing didn't really start happening till around the 20th over. Which is what happened here. That's when Boult becomes unplayable.

    We should be able to nail them for 250 max. If not, well played to them.

    Will again point out how ludicrous it was to make a pitch that makes the toss a lottery against a side with strong batting and weak bowling.

    The make a pitch part isn't ludicrous when it was asked for. Groundsman did what was asked for, and would have struggled to come up with something "flat" for batting anyway after the **** weather we've had in the past week, and indeed, most of the summer.

    Awesome day for India, thoroughly enjoyable to be there live.

    I never doubted you for a second Ishant. I never doubted you for a second Dhawan

    For any Kiwi fans panicking, fear not. Whenever I attend an away test match for India (Melbourne, Sydney, Lord's, Trent Bridge) the result is always the same - India lose. So most likely scenario is that India collapse tomorrow and then Fulton scores a double ton in the 3rd innings imo.

    Yeah can't blame the groundsman. How fair the pitch has played since about over 40 just goes to show he did a pretty decent job.

    Still something in it for the bowlers but it isn't seaming like crazy or anything.

    meant the "ask for greentops" part.

    The Auckland wicket was perfect.

    That said, India also bowled well here.

    Yeah Hendrix covered that and was putting it primarily on the McHesson statements last night ftr.

    McHesson weren't staying up overnight and watching Kohli's ton at the Wanderers like say Cribbage was.

    Which is a much fairer thing to say, but given the weather, it's not as if the groundsman would have had a whole load of options.

    Interesting to note how often NZ changed the ends the bowlers were bowling from. I did wonder before hand whether NZ were lacking someone with significant experience of bowling into/with the Wellington wind. It wasn't a particularly windy day, but it definitely got up in the evening session.
