    You must have been feeling every ball with the amount of money you had on! Congrats!
    I can honestly say (as insane as it is) that I would trade it all for a series win if I could.

    You know, in 20 years time, the teenage and 20-something stat heads on CW will look back on this series and say "Ho hum, thank God we don't have boring 0-0 series like that anymore".

    Thet'll be as big a bunch of turds as the current crop of stats nuts.

    Who was your MoM?

    Who was your PoTS?

    What was your most memorable moment?

    Unluckiest bastard award goes to?

    Who were you most impressed with?

    Who let you down the most?

    Team overall ratings?

    And cause I'm bias, have people's impressions of the NZ cricket team changed? For better or worse and why?

    I said earlier was a thrilling series despite the pitches and weather, can't ask for much more than that despite it being 0-0.

A drawn series against quality opposition is definitely a good result for New Zealand and the side played genuinely well so there's a lot to take from it.
    GTFO, and let me be irrationally sad for a while. But yeah, I see your point. I'm not sure many of us would have predicted we'd perform as well as we did, myself included. There's a big list of positives to take out of this series though. The emergence of Hamish Rutherford, the resurgence of Peter Fulton, and McCullum's performance as captain(with the bat as well). I think what has been the most pleasing thing about this series has been Trent Boult. At least in my opinion anyway. I've always rated him, but he looked legitimately world-class on some batting-friendly pitches in this series. I knew Wagner would do a job for us, but he exceeded my expectations as well. He took some mightily important wickets during the series.

    Agree wholeheartedly with that statement. Boult to me is the greatest bowler that has come on in the NZ side since Shane Bond retired and to think he obviously still isn't the finished product. There's a lot to get excited about the future there. It will be certainly be interesting to see how he goes over in England. I need to start preparing for some late nights in front of the telly I think! We should almost have a thread dedicated towards tips to staying awake all night!

    I assume that Guptill will be fit for England so it will be interesting to see what happens there.

    Bugger!



    Well that was a fair old scrap. Disappointing that we couldn't quite nail the win, but that was a fantastic effort by England to save the series. Ya gotta love test cricket.

    I know Hesson backed Guptill before he got injured but given how terrible he was and the fact that a lot of people wanted him dropped even in spite of thinking the potential replacements were gash, surrrrrely he can't just walk back into the side now that openers have performed in his place. It would be an absolute farce.

    Guptill, Vettori, Ryder, Bracewell, McClenaghan ...that's not a bad bench. Dean Brownlie's probably the most vulnerable starter.
