I think gravity would be difficult to overcome there Earl, but I like the thought process. Yes, they knew how to make things interesting in those dying stages, Chris!
Start at 3.15pm has been proposed. Right now looks okay, let's see.
I might have to get some of their material checked off with my editors, Chris.
What's everyone's take on the Parker v Joshua fight next week?
Rain has started again. Light, but the hessian is on and the main cover is getting unfurled.
Told you - when a bit of rain is around hold all tickets if its cricket we're talking about.
Where in the world is everyone watching? I know we've had the Coromandel so far - If it's sunny there I'm open to relocating. Would fit the crowd numbers in too
Hi Earl, just in response to your earlier question. I tend to like eating during rain breaks and drinking copious cups of tea. If it sets in, you can always play "best XI" based on criteria like shortest, tallest and other "more imaginative" options.
Chris, as far as I'm concerned the ICC stats are rubbish. Look back a couple of weeks ago with Munro and Sodhi...
I like the thinking, 12th man. I think we have enough in the bank to come out for an over or two then declare, just to be a pain. I'm not sure how England would bat, to win or to save the test?
Covers still on the pitch and the rain still falling. Latest update from Sky Sport.
Lights are on at Eden Park, some very dark could's still hanging over Eden Park. The wait continues.
It's now the official tea break. And it's not raining. You'd like to see some activity, some signs that people are trying to make ready. Nothing. And that's what really angers spectators. Make a visible effort and they can live with that. Do nowt and invite a decent slap
