Roll up, roll up... time for the second test of the most interesting test series currently being played. (And it's not often that Kiwi cricket qualifies for that honour.)

No idea what's going to happen so no bet for me yet. Will watch and (maybe) learn...

vattori on after 20overs desperation..but i guess they dont have a chioce with selection of bowlers on offers

surprised the draw is holding up. market was expecting early wkts. they havent come.
Report brentford December 3, 2009 1:39 AM GMT
come in from 3.8 to 2.7

If Pak get a big first inns be a lot of pressure on a pretty dodgy NZ batting lineup - though probably will keep edging in a bit for a while
Report Lix December 3, 2009 1:42 AM GMT
I see pak grinding it out today and some bad light later losing us about 8 overs.

If Pak finish the day 220/4, draws gotta be a lot lower.
Report brentford December 3, 2009 1:46 AM GMT
agree it's got toom to come in but can make up overs for 4 days - decent forecast, leg spinner for Pak

NZ only saved by weather and Dhoni's conservative approach here last year.
Report Lix December 3, 2009 1:56 AM GMT
Just looking at that scorecard from last year.

Why the feck did Dhoni set em 617! FFS!

talk about negative!
Report brentford December 3, 2009 1:57 AM GMT
was worried about the powerhouse NZ batting line up with a 1-0 series lead ;\
Report dougydougy. December 3, 2009 1:57 AM GMT
i saw that as well ridiculous stuff really funny, Dhoni loves a series win though, get ahead then give the opposition no chance. Ground them into the dust.
Report brentford December 3, 2009 1:59 AM GMT
looks a slightly better deck than both last year and the Eng game in 2008 but would still feel quite nervy about NZ if they have to play from well and truly behind the 8 ball.
Report brentford December 3, 2009 2:00 AM GMT
still early days for that - last two test started with 70 plus opening partnerships and 400 not posted
Report Lix December 3, 2009 2:01 AM GMT
Yeah but cos of the slow scoring, we may get to the stage where NZ only have to reach a follow on target for the draw to go nice n low.

Think there is considerable cloud forecast over the test so light may be a constant issue.

No sign of the clear skies which were supposed to arrive yesterday and the NZ Met service is now forecasting light rain on Sunday as another low approaches.

and at the end of the day...it's New Zealand.
