Interesting to see how SL bounce back after the first Test, I am expecting some improvement.

No rain about in Wellington, but bad light may come into things late every day.

5 draws here out of last 10 tests at the basin. Only 2 of those results were hugely effected by rain.

8 from 10 the winner of the toss has sent the other team in, however, of the 5 results that has backfired, with 4/5 tests being won by the team being sent in, and the 5th match involved Bangladesh so can be taken with a grain of salt.

Average first inns total from last ten 351.5

Wait on toss for me.

Tim Southee in doubt apparently.

Hopefully they'll be more interest in this match. Think liquididy in the 1st test was hampered by the fact it was played on same days as Oz v India

think their may be good value in draw here, wellington pitch can give up plenty of runs and sl looked better in 2nd innings batting. Althought mac in form is really moving the match on.

Looks a green seamer.

It looked like that too for the games last year but it was still a great batting track pxb. So I think the team winning the toss should still bat first. Bit like the game in Christchurch. That greenness in NZ is deceiving.

Thanks Tyco.

I was kind of aware of that, which is why I said 'looks'.

Nowhere seems to have real green seamers any more.

No worries.. and I said team winning toss "should" bat first, but they have not been doing that. So it will be very interesting to see what they do decide to do. No rain in WEllington, few showers in the morning but its clearing.

Looks like the winner of the toss is going to bowl if MCCullum is anything to go by. I just think they may get it wrong again. 11am start.

If anyone wants slightly better value for SL then you can take my series score 1-1 bet instead of Match Odds. The match could be a tie, but it's still better value...

Thinking NZ put up a decent score today, despite the pitch.

340/5?

Williamson is batting well, ably supported by Taylor. Nice batting track by the looks of things.

15 wickets day 1. Tempted to have a small back of the draw as tends to be higher scores in later innings here.

Hoping the wicket has flattened out and Sanga can put on 50+ with the tail to make a game of this.

Brilliant knock from Sanga.  A lead of 100 odd here could be huge - surprised SL aren't shorter.
By:

Sanga 200

And I feel a major lump on SL is in order, even though I'm all green.

gd ffs got caught watching the NFL wild card play off game!

I have been looking for a Hail Mary and this was it! Not sure WI will survive at Newlands but that is interesting too and a possible twist lies in ambush with the pitch, just depends if they can dislodge Amla and AB. Here the odds look confusing as I haven't beeen following closely. Is the pitch evening out that much tomorrow? The odds look confuing

Draw price will crash if no wickets in first hour.  New Zealand will bat for 2 days if they can
By:

When: 04 Jan 15 13:52
well thing is 3 whole days to go! Pitch looks green still but that will hold it together so they may well bat well for 4-5 sessions. Then the prospect of rain, even light showers might spook a few so I am going with a long punt on the draw at 6
By:

I'd have SL favourites.

But with 3 days left and only a few showers, draw lay for me. Although WD is right, draw will drop when it actually rains.
By:

When: 04 Jan 15 18:59
Showers now forecast for last 2 days.  Agree SL must be favourites but if New Zealand get a good start then draw will come in.  Big question is how flat the pitch has become.   Didn't watch yesterday and all reports focus on Sanga's 200 and don't touch on the actual match/pitch etc.  Did anyone watch and have an informed view on pitch?

Would like to know this too, and whether NZ are capable of batting for the best part of 2 days on it

How do people back so much and others lay 1000's of it and not end up with useless betfair accounts due to the Premium Charge. I really don't understand.

Price just waiting for the new ball.  3 overs without loss with the new ball, may shoot straight up past 1.60 IMO.
