Breaking/Brief news

    Stephen Fleming sent (gasp!) Kyle Mills in at #3 after New Zealand lost Peter Fulton early, chasing 249 to win the first test against South Africa. When Mills came in to bat, the score was 5/1 in 2.1 overs. When Mills got out, the score was 5/2 in 2.3 overs.

    Why Fleming (and Bracewell et al) did it when New Zealand could have called upon the likes of Oram, McCullum, Vettori or even Franklin to bat up the order, is totally baffling.

    Update #1: New Zealand are 26/5 and I'm laughing!

    Update #2: I can confirm that New Zealand have [barely] got past their 26 all out. But they're 28/6 with Oram gone!
