    Outside of that though, he just looks so good. He's taken to scoring big runs, admittedly only in the County Championship but he had a great game in the first Test and has just picked up where he's left off. The start to his Test career hasn't even been that good but it just looks like it's going to improve and improve IMO.
    I agree completely with that but I'm not counting my chickens yet with Root.

    Bumble reminding us there is an Ashes Test in Durham, what a joke. I hope the Aussie players have translators at the ready.

    Just got up to watch a bit - looks like Southee still getting nice shape but England have played him well - bloody Root. Have any of NZ's other bowlers been good? Wagner's bowling high 120s here, while from the comments Bracewell and Boult have been mixed.

    Southee bowling reasonably well, the rest have been pretty poor.

    Far too much leg side filth. Lines are all over the place.

    It also looks like it's been built in the wrong place.

    They could do with demolishing the joint rugby/cricket stand, it just looks ****.

    That's the last review now, hope he's plumb next, but not given, will just add to the hilarity.

    The problem with a WK/captain in the DRS era is you're giving one man all the sway

    The only thing worse would be Broad in charge of DRS
