    Heef Channels the Likely Lads (aka NZ vs. Aus replay)

    For those who've never seen the classic British sitcom, Whatever happened to the Likely Lads?, there's a wonderful episode where the two main characters are trying to avoid finding out the score in a football match so they can watch the full replay in the evening

    Today, I suffer the same. I've been painting windows all day (from 10am until now) and have missed the cricket thus far (I guess the first innings is over by now, perhaps). I even missed the opportunity to watch the game at the pub with 16Tins. Anyway, I'm avoiding the match thread and anywhere that could inform me of the match situation. Once the replay starts, I'll be posting comments in this thread so that everyone else can point and laugh with the benefit of hindsight.

    I'll catch you all later.

    It looks to be over. TV has been paused at the start time. Must have been an early finish which suggests it is likely to have been a blow out one way or the other. On we go.

    Clarke wins the toss. No biggie for NZ - pretty used to losing the toss by now. NZ will want some early wickets to ensure the explosive Australian lower order can't just come in and swing from ball 1.

    Sounds like I'm in need of some incontinence pants.

    I'm actually looking forward to this.
    Bahnz, Adders, andyc and 2 others like this.
    The sort of general malaise that only the genius possess and the insane lament.

    Not a great start from Southee. Not getting the lines right, and not really getting the length right either. Interesting to see early swing though - could be interesting for the Australian top order if the ball keeps swinging.

    Two shots bursting through midwicket as well - a bit uncharacteristic that. Nervy start, NZ.

    EDIT: So hard not to read other threads between posts atm - but any of them could have spoilers in them.

    C'mon Boult - on the money, please.

    Better start from Boult, but some ghastly shot there from Warner. Blaming the size of the ground for the boundary, those comms, but given how quickly that went, it would have been a boundary anywhere.

    Whoop! Southee gets bashed but then uproots Finch. That might slow down the Aussies a bit.

    :facepalm: Terrible first ball to Watson. Southee all over the place, despite the wicket. Really not good when Watson's under so much pressure to make a score.

    What if all the switches get stuck on 'destroy'?

    Boult bowling well here. Seems to be hitting his lengths much, much better than Southee. Needs a bit of luck, but good signs from him.

    Loved the panorama shot there of Eden Park. Can't remember the last time I saw it so full during daylight hours. A good hum of atmosphere as well.
