Sorry, sorry showing from New Zealand. They kept swinging and pulling, despite the bounce, and kept falling. Only No 9 Bracewell facing more than 20 deliveries, says everything

Rory Kleinveldt: "We assessed early on that the wicket was a bit up and down, so we decided to go cross-seam."

Kahn O: "For once the Mayans were right and it is indeed 86 all out for the Kiwis. Looks like it is one those days where I should buy a multi-million dollar lottery! Do I get anything for my prediction?" With your luck/skills, you'll get the lottery winnings, what more do you want?

Raff: "Actually, the TV commentary got garbled. Rory Kleinveldt didn't say, "We assessed early on that the wicket was a bit up and down, so we decided to go cross-seam." He said, "We assessed early on that we were facing New Zealand, full stop." Ha!
