    50 off 50 balls. I wonder if there's ever been a slower T20 50?

    Yup, NZ have a mortgage on that particular score.

    So is this pitch as difficult to score on as we're making out here? Only listening on the radio but it seems only McCullum found it possible to accelerate and score quickly.

    Is this going to help our bowlers or are England just going to blitz this?

    Good stuff from Broad after getting smashed in the last game.

    Should think we'll chase this, even with another Dernbach over to go

    It's a typical cake tin pitch. Not the easiest to bat on, but NZ are 20 short, imo.

    I'm not sure how far we are short, but we're short.

    England could draw the chase out and make the result look closer than it actually is, but I reckon the top three or four can chase this down and they'll win by eight or nine wickets with a couple overs to spare.

    Boult to Mathews, OUT, Caught at second slip! It was a length ball going across Angelo, who tried to hit it hard towards the leg side and got an outside edge that flew fast towards Guptill, who took a reflex catch in front of his face

    I can't be the only one that thought Guptill's innings was ****ing terrible? The commentators are ****ing blind.

    At least there's some sane people here. The commentators saying "take Guptill's score out and what have you got?" is one of the most illogical things I've ever heard. It's basically assuming the batsmen that came in after him wouldn't have changed their approach if Guptill had actually played a proper T20 innings. Guys like Taylor could have used a few deliveries to get themselves in, but they needed runs as soon as they got to the crease.
