    Haha Franklin in that innings has scored more than any that Oram has this year and one less than Broom's best.
    Direbirds FTW!

    Loving this score. Awesome!

    Obviously need to get Dilshan early, and can't count out Jayasuriya even if he's out of form. Would be just like him to smash a 100 at a time like this.

    Hmm. I'd say you want at least two or three players in the side who aren't necessarily grafters, but who have the ability to play that role when necessary. Guptill did a great job of it today, tbh.

    Right, bedtime now, and I will not be impressed if I wake up tomorrow and find we conspired to lose this from here.

    I expect you to wake up at 4am and check the score.

    Yep - McCullum simply does not work at the top, well not at the moment. Elliot is playing his role very well and when Taylor can find form again, which perhaps will coincide with him finding a new scoring shot, then the middle order will look a lot better.

    New Zealand-making the impossible possible.

    Sadly, we include failing in that too. But not today.

    The first few pages of this thread are quite funny actualy.

    Hoping we don't get on the receiving end of an SL top four special.

    Maybe we should open the bowling with Tuffey to see if he can work his first-over magic again.

    Awesome late order batting, fantastic to see Franklin come into the team and bat like he did

    Why did this game have to be on a Sunday night and not a Saturday night! NO FAIR! Heading to bed because of work tomorrow and having to be up early to update CW Fantasy Cricket

    Two or three yes, but for us I think only one in the top 3*. Then Elliott at 5, with Vettori to rescue us with some grafting like today if necessary (ie. bat 7 or 8 or 9 depending on circumstance).

    Also, Broom has crossed the "go back to domestic cricket" boundary for me today. Enough chances now - yes he would ideally be batting at 4 or 5 but those spots are taken, so tough luck. Will have one more chance to redeem himself against England though.

    Edit: * Just not sure who could/ should perform this role

    Agree completely.

    Expect him to make a scratchy 30 against England though and be retained.
