I think Craig White may have had the same problem. That and being "the first rat ever to join a sinking ship".

I wouldn't drop Vaughan just yet. He's still the best captain England have and was in good form last summer. Strauss has been a liability for a couple of years prior to his 173 yesterday, which will keep him in the team for a while yet.

Martin McCague was the rat who joined the sinking ship. Craig White was born in Hull and educated in Australia. How England could do with someone like him at number 7 or 8 now.

McCague wasn't dissimilar. Born in Northern Ireland, brought up in Australia, but I think you're right that the quote was about him on reflection.

Indeed we could do with a White. For one thing he was quicker than everyone we've currently got bowling.

Draco Malfoy seems to have got his teeth into the NZ lineup and Monty's remembered how to bowl.

Hopefully we can wrap this one up tomorrow.

282-7 now, Monty thwarting Taylor's attempt to pull a Nathan Astle. Surely England can't fuck up from here.

At lunch, Southee has made twelve with two shots, off Panesar and Anderson.

He just needs to do that 32 more times.

The last two tests must have established some kind of record for successive 4th innings totals in heavy defeats. Whatever happened to setting 300 to win?

Southee gets fastest NZ fifty ever. Great stuff.

Well, NZ now have 3 of the top 4 losers' scores, all against England: 451 (Christchurch 2002), 440 (Trent Bridge 1973) and 431 today. More English than the English, indeed. In fact you could even hear squeals of "Come on Tim!" today ...

Shows up all the commentators who'd been urging England to declare before stumps on the third day!

Indeed. Southee's knock was uproariously entertaining though - glad I stayed up to watch it. Part of me wanted him to go on to get a match-winning 150 not out, but with Martin actually eking out the winning runs.

Yup. Definitely worth staying in the pub for.
