That collapse

First up - great bowling Ryan Sidebottom. He has clearly been the best bowler on display in this test. But, by God, was that awful collapse by New Zealand utterly predictable or what? Not only was New Zealand coming in to bat from a position of power (when it is time to be ruthless, it is time for our batsmen's brains to explode), but it was also the dreaded fourth day. I was so convinced that a collapse was coming that I couldn't bring myself to watch the start of the New Zealand innings. I went outside and did some gardening instead. I wish I had stayed there.
