    I'm relieved I was out with a bunch of toddlers as I don't think I could have dealt with the tension.

    That's astonishing. I'm sad to have slept through it.

    Record tenth wicket stand in a successful chase.

    Fernando got five of the 78, four of them from overthrows.

    Wow! Unbelievable last wicket partnership take SL to victory. Kushal Perera with a superb unbeaten 150.

    And Perera, who had clubbed Steyn for six in the last over, gets them off Rabada. Scenes

    They have done it!

    One of all-time great innings from Perera.

    Four wickets fell for 20 runs but the last pair have put on 37, needing another 41. New ball just taken.

    Philander's absent - tweaked hamstring, a big blow

    99 to win, 5 wickets remaining, new ball due in 18 overs and a stand approaching the century mark. Going to be an interesting next couple of hours for SL.

    The story gets worse:

    On Wednesday, a sign promoting sexual consent, which said "No means no", was taken down at Westpac Stadium in Wellington, the venue of the first T20I. After security personnel confiscated the banner and escorted the woman holding it away from her seat, NZC and stadium officials apologised for the act and said it was an over-reaction.

    This has been a big story in NZ and it isn't going away.

    They tried "nothing to see here", and a few years ago it might have worked, but it's not good enough now.

    That means NZ have an unassailable 2-0 lead in the women's series. They also won the first men's match and the second one is in progress now. India looking good for a successful chase to set up a decider on Sunday here.

    Have just seen that there is an interesting T20I thing going on between New Zealand and India. Three matches for the women and three matches for the men, all as double-headers. Wellington tomorrow, Auckland on Friday and Hamilton on Sunday.

    Folk may recall that the NZ v India meeting in the women's World T20 in November saw Harmanpreet Kaur score 103 and kick off the tournament thread.

    Hmmm, as good a place as any to shoehorn this in.......our group got lucky in the ballot for day one of the Ashes test at Lord's - I'm not one for bucket lists and all that, but we've been on about doing this for as long as we've been going to tests, so we are somewhat chuffed.

    Apparently Day 3 of the Ireland test is (the only one in that test) over subscribed, presume it's a Saturday?

    SL back in at the Gabba. End of day two and they're a long way behind.

    Siddle was not selected but there's a strong case that he should be in the Ashes squad based on experience.

    Australia must also be quite tired. Pretty much non-stop since they started the 2018-2019 season in UAE in October. After this series they go to India for 2 T20 and 5 ODIs where they will probably be heavily beaten.

    Good to see Peter Siddle still getting games for Aus, he seems to have been around since the Millennium
