You are over 500 ahead in your second innings of the deciding test of a series. Your highest scoring batsman has just got out. There are two days left, but the scoring rate has been no more than 3.5 an over on average. You know that no one has ever made more than 418 to win in the final innings of a test. What do you do?

If you are Michael Vaughan, you decide that 513 isn't a big enough lead and wait another eight overs before declaring. Now, there is no earthly way NZ are going to win from this position, so it looks as though all he's done is shorten the length of time that they need to survive to secure a draw. I wonder if this match is weighing heavily on his mind.
