Been watching in bed - can't beat a Saturday morning lie-in.
Would be disappinting to lose from here, tbh.
Luke Wright for MotM? Really set the tone for the England innings.
Buttler preferred to Bairstow for the gloves, just realised.
Probably MotM for Wright. Needed to cover for the spinners here and filled in very competently. This after 42 (20)
This is just so ****. Tour is already a write-off for me. Blaming McCullum for this mess. Totally brainless electing to bat first and then a rash shot, spooning an easy catch to Morgan in the deep.
Ellis is really not a particularly good hitter is he. NZ have fielded many of his 'type' of limited overs player over the years but most of them can really crank it up and slog at an SR of 200 if it's their day. Ellis looks like he'll struggle to regularly score at 130.
And besides that, he just doesn't look particularly coordinated with bat in hand.
Ellis wouldn't be far off the worst player I've seen play for us. He's just terrible at everything he does.
This is weird. Geoff Boycott talkingly lovingly about doofus drivers with baseball caps back to front cruising up and down the main drag in Hamiltron.................
