    Good first ball back from Boult there. Bit of inswing, lovely full length.

    Ha. Well, 2nd ball back gets the wicket, but not such a good ball really. Chopped on by Maxwell. Poor shot. Massive pressure now for the new batsman.

    I should be writing an essay but I'm refreshing for Heef's commentary every few seconds instead. Gripping stuff; I feel like I'm watching this live!

    It's 3.47am where I'm at and I'm not sure if I should hit the sack or keep refreshing...

    Well - I know there's an early finish. So, I'd say Australia get rolled cheaply - somewhere between 150 and 200 and then NZ chase. Could still be enough runs for Australia to win, but would suggest a successful NZ chase.

    Marsh gone now - similar to Maxwell, but a better ball. Marsh arguably had to play at that. Maxwell didn't.

    EDIT: Might have to revise down that 150-200 - but Afghans were able to make 210-9 after being 95-7 and Australia have a really, really good lower order.

    Australia need a Clarke special here. I would be really disappointed if his back went. Really, really disappointed.

    I'd rather listen to Danny Morrison than this shower of shunts that have crossed the Tasman en masse. Who next? Dean Jones?

    Some light reading for the innings break.

    Confusing that. A whistle-stop replay of all the wickets into the next ball where a wicket was taken. Had to do a double-take.

    Clarke gone to one of those short cover type positions. He hit that well, but straight to Williamson. Not smart from Clarke.

    The Game of Cricket was a website that some chap posted about on CW - which was effectively an online game like FromthePavilion, but instead of running a team - you had a single player who you could train and who could work his way up from club cricket (I recall local Wellington team Brooklyn Windmills were in the database). I assume this game, known colloquially as TGOC, is now defunct.

    Does that answer your question?

    Richardson + AN Other Aussie both telling Johnson to go for his shots. Gets out next ball. Aussie complains about him going for his shots.

    Tbf, it wasn't a great shot - but at least he wasn't doing a Broad/Jeets.

    EDIT: Might have been kind to Johnson. He was showing Boult all three stumps - Broadesque.

    Wowowow! Lovely ball from Boult to get Starc.

    Boult has succeeded here bowling a full length and the batsmen have either struggled with his angle or the ball has been moving enough to do some damage. Certainly not prodigious movement or even as much movement as in the England game.

    Starc should take a lead from that. Similar bowler to Boult, and definitely able to get the ball to talk from that angle and that length. If Boult can do damage bowling like this, Starc should copy it and the New Zealand batsman might have similar travails.

    Australia on line for a lower total than England!
