    Just an excuse to get Franklin cemented in the team.

    What are the bowling conditions like guys? (obviously we still need to bat out the 50)

    I saw a good performance by NZ for once but as I start watching, 4 wickets fall and they collapse. Dire.

    A bit of movement with the new ball, nothing much since.

    Really embarassing collapse from New Zealand, and so disappointing to falter so badly here after such an excellent start from Ryder and McCullum. Theres still plenty of time to reach 250+ but its certainly not going to be the certainty it seemed 20 minutes ago.

    Bit of inconsistent bounce there.

    I shouldn't really admit to it but I did find that amusing, not a bad response.

    Sack Moles the guy is a moron. Harsh but it's not like he has a fantastic record behind him. Anyone with half a cricketing brain knows McCullum isn't good enough to open the batting.

    If he makes 30+ I reckon we should knight him.

    ****ity **** ****. Come back after 120/1 and we're four down.

    Can't say McCullum getting out for 45 surprises but gutting that Taylor and Elliott out. Guptill and the Broomerang need to do a lot here (and not stagnate either).

    That was a Bracewell idea. Though Bracewell let him play his natural game, Moles has told him to be a classic OD opener and has had pretty moderate success. I mean we get frustrated but 40 is better than 0. Would prefer him to play his natural game though
