    I'm sticking with them for now. Mostly because the money I put on at 14s isn't worth hedging at that price.

    Rutherford gone already, looks like you timed the hedge to perfection.

    At least his strike rate is positive thought. Right?

    I just reckon New Zealand are going to get rolled here tbh. The first couple of wickets at least, anyway. They're not going to be 4s again for quite a while if at all in this game.

    I don't expect New Zealand to score many runs but that doesn't mean England's batting wasn't poor.
    I do agree but I think we'll get a good idea of whether their go-slow was justified as a strategy or not. At least some of this Kiwi lineup will be trying to force the pace.

    Yeah, I'm reassessing our batting already. I doubt NZ will get within 50 of it.

    Don't jump to conclusions people!! Brownlie, McCullum and Watling all in decent nick with Taylor always a class act at number 4. I'd still back NZ to at least chase England down here.

    Yeah it definitely looks that way at the moment.

    Broad and Anderson are both clocking 85+ and getting good carry; could be that it wasn't the pitch that was slow. Although that said Lord's does have a funny habit of quickening on day two.

    I didn't really mind the go-slow that much. I thought they let Wagner get away with a bit too much rubbish but Martin only ever looked a threat when batsmen were attacking him and, with a four man attack, waiting for the bowlers to tire when they were bowling as well as Southee and Boult seemed a sound strategy. They definitely could have put more pressure on Wagner at times though and in the end the problem I had with the batting was poor execution rather than lack of intent. They just didn't do what they set out to do very well at all.
