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.

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

thought NZ had it almost sealed yesterday....but that's good rear guard action by bell,prior and broad...Now my penguins have to wait for some more time.....
Do not argue with an idiot. He will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.
Guptill, Vettori, Ryder, Bracewell, McClenaghan ...that's not a bad bench. Dean Brownlie's probably the most vulnerable starter.
