    Agree. I think "we turned up" is more realistic than "we fronted up" but as skipper all he can say is that they worked hard off the field but it didn't pay off for them on it, and hopefully the individuals will learn some lessons from playing against such quality opposition.

    Boult to Mathews, OUT, Caught at second slip! It was a length ball going across Angelo, who tried to hit it hard towards the leg side and got an outside edge that flew fast towards Guptill, who took a reflex catch in front of his face

    outclassed in every department. taylor ryder and ronchi may make a difference. huge problems at the top of the order. move bj up to open with guptill, one guy nz must persevere with. flynn franklin patel and wagner not up to it and williamson needs dropping down the order.

    It's a shame that Flynn couldn't produce the goods at test level. He's a quality player imo.

    Yep. His name is Luteru Ross Poutoa Lote Taylor.

    Potential captain material as well.

    I definitely want to see Munro play against England. He's my new second fav Kiwi cricketer.

    Also topped the bowling averages.

    • Southee and Boult to continue where they left off

    • NZ batsmen to post over 400 at least once


    I will be relatively happy with the progress (bar obvious treatment of Taylor) if this happens.
    • Flynn to finally kick on and score a century.
    No, not even close. Awful series and he might be on the chopping board now.
    • Williamson to become more consistent
    Nope. Still think he's batting out of position but either way he needs to learn a touch of discipline outside offstump.
    • Patel to pick up a few more wickets against poorer players of spin
    nope. Looked threatening at times but, like all the bowlers, was too inconsistent to apply pressure
    • Southee and Boult to continue where they left off
    Southee injured. And nope, Boult bowled at least 1 **** ball and over and let off the pressure
    • NZ batsmen to post over 400 at least once

    hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha

    So what progress has anyone in the team made? Watling and Brownlie were good but they were coming into the team so they don't count.

    Does this mean that our players are better off being in domestic environments if they want to develop?

    Ffs dropping Williamson to five isn't going to fix his problems outside off it's just going to hide them

    This is a shocking statistic

    I just don't see him as a number 3 batsman but we're just gonna have to disagree here cos I think we've had this conversation.

    Maybe they need to be hidden at the moment? He's only 22, he can work on it and in the meantime let him come in against the older ball. Long term I think potentially he could be a very good no3, but maybe no5 would be better for him right now. Let someone more experienced like Taylor take that spot.
