    Brilliant from Prior. What a champion.

    Good effort from New Zealand, but ultimately didn't quite have the class & threw away a couple of opportunities.

    Hats off to Matt. World's #1 without any doubt.

    Absolutely gutted. Credit to Prior, though **** me he had some luck.

    Heart has been racing for the last 15 minutes. Not a good thing at 5.15am.

    England have pulled off a draw with 9 wickets three times in the last few years which is insane. I think it's only happened a total of 6-7 times in all of cricket history.

    oh well , but Kane bowling so well is a huge bonus, definitely looking forward to an attack of Williamson, Southee,Boult, Bracewell, Wagner/ other **** in the future.

    So unsatisfying being an NZ cricket fan at times. Almost is a word that comes up quite often. Quality test cricket though. That'd be one of the most entertaining test matches I've ever watched.

    What a test match, bloody marvellous from Bell, Broad and most of all Prior but you feel for the NZ players who gave it everything. Considering the games were played on 3 roads it was a thrilling drawn series really despite the weather.

    We got out of jail here but not complaining just hope this is the start of better things for NZ long term.

    Can't think of another cricketer who has flat-out improved as much as Prior over the past few years. That's a wonderful knock under pressure.
