Run rate required just hit 6 an over (i.e. run a ball). Wiliamson's struggling, but still scoring, and Taylor is looking comfortable but not flash. Still plenty for time for us to fuck it all up, or India to bowl up a storm - worth the watch.

Was a good watch, that's for sure. McCullum with the quick runs, Taylor with the awesome consistency. That 100 was well deserved

GRRRR, I was hoping that India would win this one.

It would make the game on Friday much more enjoyable. OH WELL, guess I'll just have to settle for free piss and the afternoon off.

India aren't that great overseas, have an awful pace attack, and NZ are really underrated in ODIs given they have a powerful batting lineup on paper, and some great seamers. I think it was always our series to win. Only concern is bmaccas tendency to throw the ball to the 4th seamer (neesham or anderson) for the death, when it really should be southee.

Its possibly because I had thursday and friday off and have been listening on the radio as I work outside, but I think that was one of the best tests I've watched/listened to.

I agree - I'm not sure if I was that little bit more invested because I spent most of the weekend watching, or because we've been playing better and better so I rated out chances that much higher... Anyway, the contributions from individuals, the highs and lows, and the ebbs and flows of the match were amazing. It's been a long time since I've felt the full range of emotions spectating a test match, and I think the last time was the English tour of some 10 years ago where we came oh so close in Eden Park and just ran out of time to get the win (in a similar way to how we did the same late last year, but I was less invested in that match).

I think for me, seeing our national team finally seeing success after having such an extensive period of being shit at our National summer game (yes it is, like it or not), while our neighbours continue to be so good is a little revelation that has made the summer that much better. I think success in most sports is a combination of coach, captain and players, and certainly the current set up is showing to be a good triangle - long may it continue.

What an effort from the Watling and McCullum. Particularly pleased to see neesham come in, and bat well as well.

Really hope bmaccas get his triple tomorrow, and the kiwis set the indians a daunting total. We definitely have the players to bowl them out in one day, just need to be focused.

I sadly have to go to work, so gotta have the cricinfo up in the background to constantly check.

I have say that this knock, particularly coming on the back of his last double ton, has changed my view about McCullum as captain.  I thought he was a good batsman, particularly at smacking it round.  But this is an epic captain's knock to almost certainly save - and who knows, maybe win - a test, and with it win a test series.  It has shown real grit and leadership.

TLDR:  I didn't think McCullum was right for the captaincy, and I was wrong.

I to have had a revelation about him. I always saw him as nothing but a wild card, could win a game on his own but 9 times out of 10 failed. Always capable of making a big score but most of time got out to an unnecessarily aggressive shot. But this last couple of games he has shown some great control and restraint which is paying dividends. We also saw similar out of Taylor in the 1-dayers. Looks like they're taking a leaf out of Williamsons book. Its great to watch.

Related to *juice*. The Orz like *sauce*, which they seem to acquire through killing: "After the *dancing*, Orz think you will make good *special sauce*. Maybe even for other Orz *party*." It would seem this is likely to be something sinister. The Orz apparently wish those who take part in *parties* to enjoy the *sauce*, as in the above quote, or in their parting words from random encounters: "Do not forget to *enjoy the sauce*."

The T20 tri series is coming up this Februray between Australian, England and New Zealand, from the 6 'pool' games who do you think will have the most success, and who will be in the final at Eden Park and win? I feel New Zealand have a really good chance as they are playing some good white ball cricket at home
