Ah, test cricket

Ah, yes, the India-New Zealand test matches have started (the Hamilton test gets underway). And for those of us on the East Coast, the timings are perfect. 6PM start time, can you believe it? (Sony, sod off).

Dhoni has elected to bowl, and I'm going to go out on a not very adventurous limb and say this is as much a defensive move as it is an attacking move. Still, nothing quite like watching a good pace attack go at it hard, so I'm not complaining. And both Zaheer and Ishant are doing a good job. There is swing out there, and Ishant is clocking regularly in the 140s. Does my heart good it does, to see so many in catching positions with fast bowlers going at it.

Test cricket. Still tops.
