Good point.

Wow, that's the second fastest 50 in test cricket. 25 balls. Kallis did it in 24.

Not surprised. Never ever buy tickets in advance to a test match esp for 5th day.

Looks like nobody will win. NZ were lucky to get 240, some bad bowling towards the end. Nz showed absolutely no intent to score.


oh well
test cricket you just never know :)

Looks like the first 240/2 was indeed the difference, after that both teams forgot how to play cricket.

Apparently Mark Craig is the first batsmen to hit his first ball in test cricket for a six. Can that be right?

No, his first ball ever. Not first ball in an innings.

seems like something a bowler would more likely do and probably less remarkable

Didn't watch this game but reading a report in the papers, it would seem Watling did fantastic work behind the stumps.
Add to that his batting - and NZ could have a keeper of high-quality here.
Their team looks better and better now.
Fulton needs to go though.

They need Ryder to sort his head out and get back in the team, he is a quality player.
It is not often u com across a quality individual who lives n breathes loyalty 2 his country n teammates.His individual contribution has been outstanding despite continuing unwarranted n unfair criticism that he gets from both media n public–Dav on Misbah

Yeah they looked good. Though Fulton still sucks... Don't know how he is still in the team.

I didn't really follow the test though. Bit bored of cricket atm. It doesn't help when there are so many other things on atm as well.
