You are in AKL, here in CHC that day it was nice and light. Sun sets later here. It clouded over, then they moved on, leaving half the sky, including where the sun was, sunny. In fact here (Aidanfield) it was cloudy and not bad light, but the game was sunny there with clear shadows
A few minutes max. Mate you could see on the screen it was dim, well below even spin allowment. 30 minutes from complete sunset. They werent going to bowl us out before the umpires pulled them off regarldess of Wagner asking for review, it was just funny.His innings and Sodhis 168 balls saved the test when on paper it looked quite feasible for us to get skittled. That 50 jumped him from 22 to 25avg. Clearly worked hard on the batting. If he keeps improving our tail could be quite strong with Southee doing the same. They were going to call stumps I think without his review.
Its not about light and shadows. their light meters are what makes the ruling.
One thing that does annoy me is that we dont start play untill 11am in middle of summer. It should be 1030. If they can play until, even seen 7pm sometimes there is plenty of light at 10:30 to start play. Could save a lot of overs.
You must have enjoyed the season and agree even though we were brittle, and our tail saved us often, it was good to be a winner outside the t20s and the close Eng ODIs.
I was here, I live here!
Bumble said if this was in ENG there is plenty of light (this was when it clouded over)
Sodhi was awesome. He is not great but he played to what he had to do (take note top order) It was more than awesome. Like Santner getting it together. What freaks me out is if you look at the whole team, we have a LOT of talent. But we rarely put it together in one game or most games. You love NRL, look at the Warriors. 4 wins was no fluke. Kieren Read told them how to breathe, Relax. Thats what the BC need. Top order fails, tdgeek and tealeaf rescue as a one off effort. They cant play every game like that
I agree re start time. Daylight savings doesnt have any effect, you start play by the sun not the clock.
Last point I do agree. While our passion differs, when the tail wags (thats when it does great???) thats excellent. That shows resolve.
