Smith and Starc are playing as well as anyone has in their respective positions.

Yes the WI are in deep for sure. They really are second rate these days, particularly in the long game. Smith is killing it. Starc and Josh H are in good nick too.

199 and a fifty not out ......... The show rolls on.
Good to see Marsh and Warner get some in the second dig.
WI in deep do do.

Cheers

Steve Smith to the rescue again. What a ripper of a player.

Good to see the poms getting another whipping, this time at the hands of our kiwi cousins.

http://www.theguardian.com/sport/2015/jun/...report-day-five

Not all bad for the poms though as Alastair Cook is back in the runs and this current NZ outfit does appear to be brimming with quality and confidence: they were the form team in the recent one day world cup as well (shame they wilted in the final).

In a way it puts the pressure firmly on the baggy greens for the upcoming ashes series as anything less than a demolition job by us will be viewed as a letdown. I see Michael Clarke has insisted that Steve Smith move to number 3 given Smith's imposing performances of late ... I could never work out why Clarke himself refused to bat at 3 when he was clearly our dominant batsman.

Jake Doran must love English cricket.
Since the English U19 side arrived here, he has scored 169 in the one of youth test, thenscores of 82, 29 N/O and 102.
And he has only recently turned 18.
One to watch for the future.

Benaud was one of those that represented the best of cricket, on and off the field.
Sad for his passing and the passing of an era.

Many, if not all, subsequent cricket commentators should take a leaf out of his book.
I'd wished he'd make a ton, but 84 isn't a bad innings either.

A great loss to the cricketing world . He has been a shining beacon of intelligent and wry cricket commentary, in a sea of ordinariness.
