Hopefully Bangladesh play well so we can maybe see competitive test cricket in our time zone.

Ravindra probably plays so they have some sort of spin option.

Some really interesting cricket at the moment. NZ are 1/1 after 6 overs. This is really good bowling from Bangers and they are getting come nice swing

Pretty impressive start by the Bangers - can they maintain the pressure?

Test won't last long, pitch is green as.

NZ will get 300ish and role Bangladesh for 100-150 twice.

Yeah unfortunately Bangers don't have the batters or patience to wait this out. And Boult and Southee will rip though em. But it's definitely a good start

Wow... Conway has some unreal stats for a Kiwi

Firstclass - avg. 47.68, 19 hundreds.

List A - avg. 46.23, 9 hundreds

T20 - avg. 43.85, 2 hundreds

Blokes 30, whys it taken so long to hit the international stage? New Zealand have been playing batsmen averaging 30 last 10 years.

Gee poor old South African love to top up world cricket with sharing their talent around.

New Zealand have done quite well with a few of them in recent years in all formats.

Neil Wagner, BJ Watling, Colin Munro, Grant Elliott all moved to New Zealand from south africa and had solid careers.

While England who are now crap dont have many coming through anymore from their south african academy like they had during the successful Strauss era. Half of there 2010/11 ashes squad were from there.

Conway has gotta be the best current all format batter in world cricket. He's the next Kohli in that sense.

A test star that can start playing t20 shots to f*** with spinners. You have to love him.

Its a shame they don't play for South Africa, they lose years worth of international cricket... same with KP was 25 before he got a crack, Trott as well..

South Africa produce a lot of talent. They would bite your hand off for someone like Conway atm, would actually make them a decent team.

Nice return from Conway after missing the test series against India, Labuschagne will be looking over his shoulder as he's coming for the no,1 spot.
