New Zealand v West Indies

First day of the test match was due to start 20 minutes ago and it's raining.

I was hoping to catch the first session. Typical.

243/2 at the close.

Williamson 97 not out.

Didn't see any action but I've heard the wicket is unusual.

Pop singer Will Young a debutant for the hosts, but only managed 5 in the first innings

When he was out I wonder if the umpire told him to Leave Right Now.

I'll get my coat.

Another masterclass from Williamson, 97 not out after the Windies opted to bowl first.

He also went to Holder before the series and asked how they could support the team for racial awareness, as a result, the players took the knee before the start.

251 in the end. He's in a class of his own.

Only saw most of the first session which was a bit slow. Stream was a bit wobbly at times too. Good coverage though from Spark Sports who I gather are television test cricket for the first time.

Sorry Sans, Sky won't be showing NZ cricket for at least 6 years as Spark Sports have secured the rights on the far side of the world https://www.nzherald.co.nz/sport/spa...ANDY765SSDBGY/

I hope Spark Sports are better than Spark Energy, who I once had the misfortune of being forced to use by a former landlord.

New Zealand have a tradition of playing pop stars, didn't Chris Martin turn out for them a few times?

Indeed, I reckon it can't cost that much to acquire the rights if they really wanted. I guess if Sky over here are annoyed Sky NZ got outbid they decided not to buy them out of spite.

Might be more to do with the fact there's probably not that much demand to watch it in the UK, especially when most of it is on when we're in bed. Even us die hards would probably only watch the first session at best.

How have New Zealand's pitches quietly become the flattest in the world? They're green, it rains a lot, there's always a breeze to assist the bowlers. So why is it a batting paradise?

Quite, even when I've tried to watch some of the tests in the past, the dull play usually sent me to sleep

WIndies are in all sorts of trouble

82/5 and a no ball has just prevented them from losing wicket number 6.

196/6 following on. To think England lost a test to this side in the summer.
