Started raining a bit here, hope it picks up. Tomorrow is looking like lots of rain.

Was a real shame they couldn't avoid the follow on on such a docile wicket, they should have supported Martin more. Anyway they are off to a reasonable start.

Love Watlings comment that they can win if from here, thats the spirit

What a performance by Boult! (god i just sounded a bit like Danny Morrison then).

Why the hell is he batting at 11 anyway?

Sodhi was hopeless!!

Looks like it is fixed. And just in time to see the test meander into a draw.

Serves him right.

A wicket and that team's like a bunch of girls at a boy band concert.

Our batting attempt wasn't too bad. Good to see that our middle order can get some quick runs

Best game of cricket I've watched in ages.  For those like me who won't pay for SKY, I've found www.iplstream.com to be pretty reliable (albeit its SD, and with ads over the video which are annoying).  It's smooth (on SNAP ADSL), and has the SKY commentary, just with Indian ads at the break.

I might go if the weather holds up. Should be a good game, India are generally slow starters on tours, so they might be firing by then.

I enjoyed that game its hard to believe these are the same guys who struggled against west indes. I could only catch indias batting delayed on prime, gotta hand it to mcglenegan(spelling) he seems to have good knack for coming in and breaking an established partnership. Looking forward to the next game.

India typically struggle with NZ pitches. We just have that unique atmosphere where we get swing, and movement off the dirt, as well as variable bounce from ground to ground. They can handle Aus more because the grounds are consistent, and the same with England who would be closest to our conditions. Every other cricketing nation has solid consistency from ground to ground that means they get straight in to the flow of a pitch with just a few net sessions and a run around at the local village green or similar.

Number of times India tours and gets whooped in a series before realising they have to take each pitch as it comes is excessive. That said, the class of the side is clearly visible; they haven't been far off our totals. One could also argue that we too were just warming up against the W.Indies, it's a less believable discussion, but with so many up and coming players finding their place in the side, it's at least a plausible theory right!
