    Always funny seeing the required RR shoot up in the last over - now standing at 102.

    282 now. Dernbach getting carried away there.

    Decent performance by us. Dernbach is still crap though.

    Dernbach trying to bully McClenaghan is so dire. He's a #11 ffs

    Edit: Not to mention him conceding 15 ****ing runs

    I think I'd back Mitch in that fight anyway.

    Anyway, rather straightforward for England. NZ need to find a way through that middle order of Wright, Morgan and Buttler to keep England to gettable scores.

    They'd have done that if they hadn't dropped them all.

    That might help too. NZ's fielding standards have definitely slipped in last few years but that was a shocking display.

    apart from the shocking fielding display, what I'm most disappointed about is the lack of tenacity our batsmen showed. When you're chasing 215 from 20 overs the time to be aggressive is right from the start.

    I know Guptill's innings will be seen as a bright spot, but it was a dreadful innings in the context of the match.

    when Taylor came in Guptill was on about 24 from 20...it's just not good enough. If you can hit boundaries you should hit boundaries. Early and often.

    He would hit a 6, and then the next ball would be short and wide and he'd run it down to 3rd man for a single. IT'S SHORT AND WIDE FFS, SMACK IT TO THE BOUNDARY.

    Must be one of the highest ever t-20 scores without a 50.

    Haven't watched it just saw some decent catches, but how did Jos do behind the stumps today?

    The thing is he came up through the ranks as a 'keeper, it's not like he's a converted one, just CK keeps him out of the Somerset side. I still think it would be ideal for Somerset and England if Buttler kept, and CK concentrated on scoring big runs in first-class cricket, because I honestly think his best chance for England is a batsman in Tests. He's been churning out the runs in first-class for awhile.

    Just watching the highlights.

    Couple of thoughts:

    1) Bowling Hira in the Power Play with those boundaries was suicide;

    2) Ellis's action's a wee bit ploppy, isn't it?
    Cricket Web's 2013/14 Premier League Tipping Champion

    - As featured in The Independent.

    "The committee discussed the issue of illegal bowling actions, and believed that there are a number of bowlers currently employing suspect actions in international cricket, and that the ICC's reporting and testing procedures are not adequately scrutinising these bowlers."
    - Even the ICC's own official press release thinks things must change
