    I have my moments, but I don’t feel good. Gooch is averaging around 40, everyone else mid-low 20s.

    This game is heart-breaking.

    Bat a whole day and only lose 3 wickets, with an unbeaten centurion: dreams of 500. Lose 3 wickets in the first hour of day 2, both batsmen on 0: will I make 300?

    Thanks to a 40-odd 9th wicket stand by Pringle and Defraitas I dragged myself up to 320, disappointing given I was 230-odd for 3 at the end of day 1.

    NZ replying well, early on in 2nd session of day 2

    England take a commanding 101 run lead on first inns after New Zealand collapse from 162/3 to 219 all out.

    Helped along their way by a piece of God-tier shithousery from Chris Lewis to remove Murphy Su’a

    Not much time but still plugging away.

    having been smashed in the first test I’ve set NZ 374 to win in 2nd test. Start of day 5 an they’re 183/4 - tense.

    This morning however I have had: AI player caught out in the infield (yay!), and AI player coming out of the crease to the spinner (triple yay!).

    will post vids of both.

    Just had the Ai come down the track to the spinner and hole out to deep mid off!! The greatest dismissal I’ve had in c19!

    Amazing. Vid later.

    anything that you could point to that would suggest what triggered it?

    i think the advice I got to put drift and flight at 65 has helped - since that I’ve had a few occasions of the batsman leaving the crease.

    seems to be only when the batsman is well in though (reasonable I guess).

    the ball was also shocking, so I guess the batsman’s eyes lit up and he went after it!!
