Gilchrist ruined that ideal though, unfortunately. You can't expect to keep in a top-level Test side and average below 30. I think Nevill is stiff as all hell, I certainly would pick him over Wade (particularly given he hit a big hundred in the Shield) but they like Wade for his energy and the fact he's a lippy cunt. Nevill is too quiet.

That Test will be a draw. The Basin is a fucking road at the moment.

The morning of the first day seems to be pretty risky, but get through that and your biggest worry is what Wellington's mad weather chooses to do.

The Basin test will be a draw without a doubt, unless Bangladesh make a very brave declaration and skittle us, which won't happen.

At least the first part won't.

We had a big issue with green seamers circa 2003 when we kicked India's ass twice sideways (go figure I went to a loss, but a chase for 200 was oddly entertaining) and seem to have overreacted to the point it's like playing in Aussie.

Oh geez, that footage isn't pleasant. Glad to hear he's been cleared of serious injury now.

And wow, New Zealand might actually win this. Kane's going for it.

Williamson gets his century with a four that ties the scores, then wins off the next ball. Can't believe it. How did we pull this one off? And so effortlessly in the fourth innings too.

I love that the general consensus after today is "what the fuck?"

Happy for KW's successes, think NZ lucked out big time though.

We wouldn't have done that against any other test team.

Though I got burnt to hell watching Kane Williamson go through the English lower order in the last session of day five. A miracle we didn't claim that one
