    Where are people getting this idea from, that Frankling will save the BC's? When has he ever pulled them through? When has he ever done it with consistency? The guy is a myth and drops his shoulders quicker than anyone.

    Not sure if we can get to 300 here, but it's an interesting stat anyway - NZ's never lost a match after scoring 300 batting first.

    While that's often true, when the man is on the boundary just trying to chip it is a very dumb option.

    250 Can relax now we'll post something competitive no matter what.

    Guptill does love hitting sixes.

    Just pathetic from the BC's. Sure he is a canny bowler, but come on, that's a joke.

    Some of the wickets were pathetic, but not surprised he went for so few runs as Vettori and Guptill needed to get themselves in.

    Huge thanks to Ryder that we could afford to bat slow for a while.

    When are they going to place a fielder on the boundary and bowl Guptill a bouncer?

    He is.

    I don't get how he can play so well and average close to 50 ish in one dayers, yet averages only 25 in tests because he gets himself out.

    Optimistic implies you are hoping he can repeat something he has done of note. Errr, he hardly has a decent record.
