I suppose the problem here is that the "spirit of the game" and the letter of the law don't concur. The solution might be that a batsman must receive at least one warning before being mankaded, rather than depending upon the generosity/"sportsmanship" of the bowler.

Yeah I'm conflicted on it. ^ that is probably a great solution.

BMac and Guppy off to a flier. Great. What's up with all the people knocking BMac on Cricinfo though? Geez, what does a guy have to do?

Didn't even know this was on. There goes any hope I had of getting work done. McCullum out now but hopefully Guptill and Williamson put on 300 not out now. We're gonna get thrashed in this series (I hope)

Good start by Baz, but a shame he missed the fifty. Hope Guppy and Kane and stay in for a good long time.

Here's hoping Nicholls can bring up a big score. He's showed promise but needs to consistently score well to seal a place in the team.

That run-out was awful (and Guptill's fault). They should be aiming for 400 from here. 203 off 29. 350 or less and they'll lose unless they bowl out of their skins.

Nicholls reaches fifty.

Honestly not sure we can get more than 350. I feel like we lack the depth - a bunch of decent hitters left but none who are currently in the sort of form to stick around for a good while.

And look what happened to Pakistan not so long ago at this ground. Looked set for 350, 360 and didn't even crack 300 in the end.

Yeah, you've got a stack of players who are great to come in the last 10 overs and hit the ball a mile but a very small top order. Whereas Aus bats very deep.

It'd be handy if Corey Anderson would reclaim his fastest century record right about now.

FUCK IT.

We'll make about 310, 320. Going to need a good show by the bowlers.
