I'm not sure Guppy is up for Test opening duties. His ODI average is 41.16, but in Tests just 29.12. Surely we can produce better than that?

Oh hell and there goes Latham too. Our openers fail us, infuriatingly not an unusual position to be in. Save us, Kane and Ross.

NZ (and I guess that one decision) have messed up their chances of winning unfortunately. At least it looks so at this stage. NZ's inability to have two in form openers at test level is their achilles heel and has been for as long as I recall.

According to Slats the sub fielder is Australia's team massage therapist.

I've gone to bed. With Kane gone, so probably is the game, so what's the point?

You know things are shit when Mitch Marsh is taking wickets.

Both Warner and Steve Smith gone now! NZ in with a serious chance here. Great game!

All I will say in the wake of this Test is that Nigel Llong is fucking lucky New Zealanders don't quite follow cricket with the same degree of religious fervour as they do rugby, or he would have to call Wayne Barnes to get some pointers.

(Though the key difference is that Llong is normally a good umpire, while Barnes is a shit referee even if you ignore that 2007 rugby quarter-final.)

NZ got robbed
2-0 is pretty harsh

If they had a proper warm up for the series they would have won

Hopefully 2-0 to NZ in NZ - i am off to the basin. The test in CHCH will be good too. CHCH is actually still a nice city despite the quakes. Better looking than Welly. Nice lush green parks and wide tree lined streets. A lot like Adelaide.

Sri Lanka up next for NZ... just like last year. They are here every 5 mins.

Wouldn't say that about Christchurch being better looking - and I say this as somebody who just got off the plane from there, and who spent a few days in Wellington over the weekend. It's flat as a fucking pancake, so for scenic value Wellington's hills and harbour win by a mile. Go up Mount Vic and you get treated to a much better looking city than if you go up the Port Hills and look back to Christchurch.

Christchurch certainly shits on everywhere else in New Zealand for great parkland though. The new ground at Hagley Park is possibly the best cricket venue in the country, maybe behind the Basin since the latter has all the tradition.

I had low expectations for ChCh when I went. The cbd is a mess but I do like the odd old building that has survived like Canterbury Museum and Christs college. Sumner and the posh suburbs like Merivale look great. Eastern suburbs are a state post quakes. A ghost town in places.

I like welly still but this wind here is just getting to me. Nearly blown into the road today. If it's like this for the test it'll be over in 2 days. Boult with a 10 wicket haul.

Hagley Oval does look nice. If I had some leave I'd go to that test too. Christchurch will be booming when rebuild is done. Wouldn't mind living there then. Great old villas around the place.

Hahaha, sign I'm a born and bred Wellingtonian: it's nice to come back to a decent breeze.

And here's a newsflash for everyone - people don't appear interested in attending an inevitably lopsided Test against a poorly organised minnow sending out what is effectively its B team: Future of Test cricket in Hobart on line with crowd of less than 10,000 projected

Reckon there's a solid chance it will be the smallest Boxing Day crowd ever, too. I struggle to think of a harsh enough adjective for the West Indies' performance against the CAXI.
