    Listening to it on the radio, it sounded like he was really struggling to maintain a good line and length, especially to Rutherford. However, he did have the hard task of bowling into the wind, which really didn't suit him from the sound of things.

    Hit the deck low 80's from what I've seen. Kinda like Finn was when he first came on the scene, but more accurate.

    I've only ever seen him with a white ball though.

    Anyway, this game is so huge for so many of the Lions players. A good performance from Onions could get him in the test side, as could a good one from Woakes. On the batting front Bairstow and Taylor are really fighting it out. Both have shown good form this season, and Bairstow seems to be the preferred man, but if Taylor really outshines him, it could be hard for him to be overlooked.

    I think they're at best 5th and 6th in line, maybe lower if Tremlett is fully fit.

    Perhaps it was the angle, perhaps it was the quality of the coverage, perhaps it was the brevity of the highlights but that attack looked pretty ordinary.

    Well, they may be slightly lower down the pecking order, but right now there are chances for those lower down to stake a claim. Finn was hardly inspirational in New Zealand, something which can be said for nearly all of his tests in the last two years, and Bresnan is only just returning from surgery. Tremlett hasn't made any real impression for Surrey yet this season, and will have to perform for a while before England can be confident he can replicate his 2011 success.

    Personally I wouldn't be looking at giving either Bresnan or Tremlett game time for England yet. Let them do their work in the Championship for at least another month or two, Bresnan can come out for the Champions Trophy, and then see how they've been performing before the Trent Bridge squad is named. I wasn't particularly impressed with Finn in New Zealand, and for the reasons I mentioned in the domestic thread, I think Onions should get a go instead of him for the New Zealand series.

    I wouldn't argue with Onions playing. A skilled bowler who is half a yard quicker of most bowlers of his ilk were a generation ago.

    What a dismal performance from NZ. Awful.
