Ben from New Zealand wants the selectors to stick with McKay for a bit. "It's pointless being negative about our stocks when we don't know whats coming up the pipeline.

DE Bollinger b Vettori 4 (9m 6b 0x4 0x6) SR: 66.66

So Southee and Vettori combine to skittle out Australia for 231 after losing the toss. Australia will look back at the innings with a lot of regret because some of their main batters threw it away - Watson, Ponting, Clarke and to a lesser extent, Katich. Having said that, the bowlers were consistent and kept the pressure on and didn't let any big partnerships develop. The catching was fine and fielding sharp. Good stuff from the home side.

Li Rui writes from China: "Love the balance 2 spinners gives NZ, but fringe guys like Patel or Arnel could enhance their worth with some batting work a la Vettori or Franklin. Great to see Southee playing: like Hilfenhaus, give him some experience and he'll be a handful in the right conditions."
