    Williamson and Guptill a bit bogged down - wicket slow/two paced, but Pakis bowling very well

    45/1 in 12th

    Williamson in particular is being tied down.

    That being said, this over is going a bit better.

    Guptill at fault there, for mine.

    Terrible run out - Williamson's call every day, and Guptill just didn't watch - some will blame WIlliamson but that was Guptill's fault imo

    We’re on track for a decent score here. 280-300 will be defendable on this track

    Williamson with a good review upon advice from Taylor. Given out, but was pitching outside leg on review.

    No Doull, Ranatunga wasn't a bad runner. He had someone else do it for him. ;)

    Taylor and Nicholls go in successive balls. NZ in a little bother now

    Santner bashing is easy, but I just don’t know if he is up to this role. Why send him in when we need to accelerate the run rate with 5-6 overs to go.

    And, he gets bowled.

    LOL @Astle - good thing we have a great #11

    If CDG isn't ready to play, he shouldn't be in the squad - if he is he should have played ahead of Astle and batted ahead of Santner (or vice versa)

    NZ will be very lucky to get to 250-260

    A bit of work to do in the field

    The pendulum swings big time when Ian Smith is in the box.

    Is Boult the greatest #11 ever?

    Rig talks a bunch of crap as usual and Smithy calls it out - that was entertaining

    Its not all about this game and series.

    NZC said the whole point of all these odi games this year is 2019WC prep.

    England may turn and two spinners may be a genuine option to win there.

    Selectors wanna see what Tastle is capable of at the top level.
