Lancaster Park got a lot smaller after they took out the embankment,
put in the new stand, and basically reconfigured it into a rugby
ground. So the side boundaries, which used to be quite long, are now
pretty short.

Lots of fun I guess, except for the bowlers getting carted!

The big hitters in the Kiwi lineup must be salivating.

It's a bit different when you bat 2nd and don't need 9 per over. The
order will go out to 'bat smart'. It would've been nice if India
scored 170ish :)

It's looking like 200 or your dead on this pitch.

Plus you need to take account of local rules: hitting the ball into old Mrs
McGregor's garden next door is six and out.

And yes, the description Lord Shiney gave is spot on.  Lancaster Park (a
ground at which cricket was played before rugby) had a normal size playing
area for cricket 20 years ago, but is a joke these days.

The record for "sixes" has just been surpassed in the 16th over of the
2nd innings.

There was 1 that I recall but that included an overthrow.

This law makes sense.  Mrs McGregor is is not the nice old lady who
invites you in for a toffee apple and scones.  Where talking about
hillbilly heaven here.  Shes actually a skinhead whose more likely to
scone you with a head***and no one wants to retrieve the ball from
her house.

Yes indeed Dungford (TM). I have no doubt it was Mr McGregor who first
violated your innocent rosy pink ass the first time you went to
retrieve the ball. Hence there after if anyone hit a six you were the
first to volunteer to get the ball back!

Not sure, but I saw several NZ 2s where the ball was hit almost
directly to the fielder in the 'deep'. This would seem to speak
volumes about the athleticism of the Indian fielding.

For the record, NZ scored four twos and two threes (one lot of three
byes/wides, and one off the bat that included an overthrow).  India scored
three twos.
