    Best Day 5 of a Test Match

    NZ v Eng, Eden Park, Mar 2018 day/night. Eng had been rolled for 58 in 1st innings by Boult and Southee, but bad weather meant Eng started day 5 at 3-132 needing to bat out the day to avoid an innings defeat (or bat almost all of day 5 and score 260+ runs to give NZ a small 4th innings target...

    New Zealand in Pakistan

    Hi Noumenon, your "5 Anus" may have been funny once, but is now infantile. Please grow up.

    New Zealand in Pakistan

    Like I said above, I think most NZers would respect a decision made by another country not to tour NZ due to security risk. But since the Mar 2019 "lone-wolf" mosque attack there have been tours to NZ from India, Bangladesh, West Indies and Pakistan and other teams. So I guess "People of...

    New Zealand in Pakistan

    If the warning came through the Five Eyes intelligence network (US, UK, Can, Aus, NZ) then NZ is unlikely to share details with a country outside the network. If a team from a Islamic country were wary of touring after the mosque attack we would understand. NZers know there are extremists from...

    ***Official*** 5th Test at Old Trafford, Manchester - 10th-14th of September

    Good question. Probably because the Sri Lanka and Pakistan limited over games had been locked into the English 2021 season calendar for late Jun - Jul before India were confirmed as WTC finalists. Then too many logistics issues to delay the limited over games and bring forward the India...

    ***Official*** 5th Test at Old Trafford, Manchester - 10th-14th of September

    "Blaming BCCI is fair". ?! Don't think so. BCCI asked ECB if the test tour could be brought forward by a week. I assume BCCI realised the risk of the short window between the end of test series and the start of postponed 2nd half of IPL. ECB refused. I assume mainly due to logistics...

    ***Official*** 5th Test at Old Trafford, Manchester - 10th-14th of September

    Even England cricket thought IPL and ODI and T20I more important than test cricket earlier this season. Returning English IPL players didn't play in tests vs NZ, instead were rested before playing white ball vs Sri Lanka and Pakistan.

    ***Official*** 5th Test at Old Trafford, Manchester - 10th-14th of September

    Which is what some of us are saying. No point England crying now about India withdrawing from a tour, when they did they same thing in Dec. Perhaps if they had agreed to India's request to bring forward the test series by a week, instead of protecting the involvement of some test players in...

    ***Official*** 5th Test at Old Trafford, Manchester - 10th-14th of September

    Did you say the same thing when England came home early from the ODI tour of South Africa?

    ***Official*** 5th Test at Old Trafford, Manchester - 10th-14th of September

    So you think England should have been fined, with an expulsion warning, for coming home early from South Africa?

    ***Official*** 5th Test at Old Trafford, Manchester - 10th-14th of September

    Forfeiture? England didn't forfeit the 3 ODI games when they walked out of the South African tour in Dec due to Covid concerns. Why would they expect a forfeiture now?

    2021/22 New Zealand First-Class Season Draft

    Yes. Two rounds after this round is finished. Need to pick 9th and 10th players, then confirm batting order and keeper for top 6 (#1, #2, #6 are important for points bonuses / penalties) and order of reserves.
