    That was the Taylor Headingley Test IIRC & we had two run outs in the row, Oram, then that lazy running from Vettori.

    Old Trafford.

    I tell you what, that result puts the Bangladesh efforts in perspective. We started out strongly in the first and second innings of the match, only to give it all away in 3 & 4. It happens.

    Again though, if NZ were minnows at that time and had only ever won 1 test going into that series, and had actually lost all 3 tests in that series (and not just 2-0 with a draw), then they wouldn't have done anything for their case of having their minnow tag removed, in spite of getting themselves into good positions in certain times.

    By the way the 3rd test of that series was an innings loss IIRC.

    That was the terrible year where we got smoked by Sidebottom home and away. Was it Strauss who went huge in NZ?

    God we sucked. James Marshall at 3 says it all really.

    Right you are that it was Old Trafford. Not sure why I had Headingley in my head.

    The other NZ highlight aside from Taylor's brilliant hundred, was that spell from O'Brien in England's 1st innings. Vettori got the 5-fer, but I recall O'Brien bowling superbly that innings & with quite a bit of fire.

    And wasn't that at a time when we had no options for openers but a lot of middle order candidates? And yet he still got a gig. Looking up the stats he did average 51 with 2 centuries for the 07/08 season so I'm assuming that's why he got the nod but ffs.

    Yeah that was around the time O'Brien surprised everyone (myself included) by actually looking Test standard AND being quite threatening.

    Pity he gave it away not long after.

    And we actually managed to win a Test in amongst all that, at Hamilton where from memory Ross got big runs and Lord Mills took 4 up front in the fourth innings to skittle them. Pummeled at the Basin and Napier to follow.

    You say James Marshall at 3 says it all, Matthew Bell was the opener as well was he not? With Jamie How his partner?

    PEWS boy would've felt hard done by no doubt.

    How and Bell opened but I don't think Marshall figured.


    Looking back, Sinclair played but didn't do very well, hence why he was replaced by Marshall for the away tour I guess.

    It ripped my undies that he bowled probably as fast as he ever had & with the best rhythm in his final Test match vs. Pakistan in 2010. That was the Test weather robbed NZ of a series win in the final day. http://www.espncricinfo.com/nzvpak20...ch/423780.html

    Was also Bond's last series having injured himself following his match winning spell in the 1st test. Story of his career.

    Gah, such a bad period. So many quality cricketers lost to injury and poor management. Just off the top of my head, all of Bond, O'Brien, McMillan, Styris, Fleming, Adams and Ryder should've played so much more than they actually did.

    Astle's retirement also came somewhat out of the blue, if I remember right.
