That said this is a very slow start from these two. Confidence can't be high for Williamson.
Yeah I didn't like it either, even before Williamson got out. England have two spinners who it won't be dead easy to score from in the middle overs, and we know our lower order batting is unreliable, so needed more run rate up the front of the innings.I don't like this plan of completely abandoning intent if Munro goes early. We don't have the players to accelerate later.
Averages mean **** all as they encompass a career.latham is a bit of a slow track bully so if he can't score here...
only a couple of blokes averaging mid 40s and another two newbies with good starts to their careers
averaged 60 last year?Averages mean **** all as they encompass a career.
Yeah Taylor isn't the same player he once was and he doesn't have the ability to accelerate. Latham is a tapper who barely ever goes for shots and De Grandhomme is one of the most inconsistent players in all of cricket.
NZ success is completely predicated on their top order.
