    Over his career, Pujara has been run out 7 times, level with Boycott but a long way behind Ponting:

    250-9 by India might not be a bad total given Australia's batting.

    It looks like NZ are going to have a 200+ lead but a draw can't be ruled out given the slowness of the scoring in the match.

    Williamson century, Nicholls 50, unbroken partnership of 134, lead of 120 and counting. This game is very evenly matched now

    Yes. 112/4 at lunch, a lead of 38. Any lead over 150 is going to give Pakistan the fear, I reckon, after the first test, so if Williamson can hang in and get a 100, this match could be very interesting indeed

    50 for Williamson. You'd think they need him to double that at least.

    I'd still have Australia as marginally favourite mind.

    Too early to rule out India, their bowling is better suited to Australia than previously, and this is a much poorer Aussie batting line up than previously. They will need a lot of runs from Kohli, but Pujara scoring a ton is good news for them as when he starts scoring he usually keeps it up.

    Pujara run out for 123 trying to farm the strike. India 250/9. And that's the last action of the day.

    Meanwhile in a very sparsely populated stadium in Adelaide, India have brought the 200 up thanks mostly to Pujara who is unbeaten on 85. Now 206/7, but the new ball has just been taken, and this is likely to be all over fairly quickly

    Taylor came in, decided to stop all this slow scoring stuff and bash the ball about. Got 22 in 14 balls. Now out, and NZ 60/4

    Yasir Shah becomes the fastest bowler to 200 test wickets by some distance. 33rd match, 3 faster than Grimmett. As you can see from this table, it's no mean feat at all. http://stats.espncricinfo.com/ci/con...ds/283534.html

    NZ 37/3, still 37 behind

    And 143/6 at tea. All very predicable really. The idea that this was going to be an epic series always seemed a bit far fetched. India out of Asia are always rubbish and Australia at home nearly always unbeatable. Even with a mediocre Australia team and a reasonable India team it was never going to be that competitive. Can't see past a whitewash to be honest

    Kohli out for 3 now too after a stunning catch from Khawaja. It should be four out as a fantastic chance to catch Pujara wasn’t taken by Handscomb, 30 for 3.

    Both Indian openers gone in Adelaide, too, against this classy Australian attack. Marcus Harris sounds like the result of some kind of Aussie middleorder batsman name generator, like Jake Ball was for the England Test side

    26/2 at the close. Both openers gone. Should be a good day tomorrow.

    Pakistan all out for 348, a lead of 74...precisely the same lead they had after the first innings of the first test also in Abu Dhabi...

    Good fightback from NZ, though the fact that all the lower order fell to spin (bar Yasir Shah who was run out when his shoe fell off) is probably a bad sign for them.

    Shafiq gone too, just after bringing up his century. You'd think NZ would need to keep the lead under 60-70 to have a reasonable chance.

    Partnership ends at 201. Azhar gone for 134, and Pakistan already with a lead of 12.

    224/3 at lunch, only 50 behind. Partnership of 139. They sped up (relatively speaking) for a while, but then the new ball has slowed them back down again.

    Century for Azhar. Pakistan 193/3 and creeping closer to NZ's total

    On reflection, Broad for Stokes is a no-brainer. Stokes is not a series-changing bowler.

    Obviously Sachin was as bored with Giles bowling a foot outside leg stump as the rest of us.

    One of the things I loved was the way you could watch him and it made you think, "I could've been a Test match bowler."
