Smith is copping shit for declaring - have to say I was surprised he didn't call it as soon as marsh got out. I like to se records fall as much as the next guy, but with rain floating about, he did the right thing

Should have let Voges bat on for 400 or when he averaged 99.97

Seriously, why not let Voges get to 300? Australia won't need to bat again.

Nice work at the end from Roach. Such a shame that Bravo is the only class batsman. He's played very well and looked quite untroubled.

I was just coming here to say Bravo's done well and passed his century, and will probably be left stranded by everybody else failing - but then he went and got out on 108 as I began typing. Good effort though, made his teammates look ordinary (which they absolutely were).

Australia have enforced the follow-on. Will the Windies even get within 200?

Oh god. Will this game even get to the end of today?

Also, Bravo out twice in 6.1 overs.

Can someone explain how the hell Braithwaite wasn't out LBW there? Way more than half the ball is hitting the stumps; I don't understand how that was umpire's call. Ridiculous.

Edit: Oh but never mind, Ramdin falls next ball, it's 5/30.

Seriously depressing. I would struggle to believe how any cricket fan could enjoy this.

I was looking forward to a quiet Sunday tomorrow watching the game. At the moment I'm sceptical play will even make it to tea today.

Boomer Harvey and Drew Petrie batting against Warnie during the Cricket Show was actually better quality and more entertaining than what's happening out in the middle.

Holder runs two to move to 6, and is now the second-highest scorer in the Windies' second innings. What a fucking joke.

Somebody needs to break it to Warne that the Windies really can't do much better than this.

Kane is the second Kiwi batsman to score a thousand runs in a calendar year, following BMac achieving the milestone last year.

Kane

Utterly pathetic but about what I expected from the West Indies. It is so sad. Even in June they at least provided some semblance of competitiveness. Would have been nice to see Kraigg Brathwaite (whatta name) get a century, at least. Those are going to be the small mercies in this series.

Was also happy for Pattinson.

Latham gets a hundred and McCullum declares aggressively.

Cricinfo is using the Twitter round up page just to compile all of Neesham's wisdom.

If I ever do anything important in life, I fucking hope Neesham tweets about it.

NZ wrap up a victory. Wagner apparently bowled very well.

Very good bowling stats all-round. I wish I'd watched more of it. Hope we can keep up that style of play, but it goes to show just how different our performances are on Kiwi (or English) pitches versus Aussie ones.

And today I learnt that Boonie is now a match referee. What a world.

Shaun Marsh has nose in front in Boxing Day Test race with Joe Burns

The headline should be: Shaun Marsh leading race for the first annual Twatto Memorial Award for Least Deserving Player to Keep Getting Selected Ahead of Genuine Talent.
