Congrats on sneaking past Scotland.
Thank you sir. And I totally agree, embarrassing to watch we were but what can you do? NZ at home are becoming quite a force, got to win from here.Congrats on sneaking past Scotland.
Woeful display - such a weak team at the moment. NZ bowled well and Kane batted superbly but the amount of awful shots is a disgrace.
Yeah that was the dismissal that stood out so much for me too. At a bare minimum the English batsmen should not be getting bowled so often between bat and pad.Boult has made his name on ridiculous spells so England were always up against it when he showed up in the zone, but the right hander in the top order that got bowled middle stump (I've seen the highlights just the once) is not going to have a good series if he's missing Trent Boult's stock lbw ball by that much. Should have been some pad in the way at least.
Nice to see the ball that goes the other way return. Completely fooled Stokes.
edit - duh it had to be root
Pretty sure England batted out in the second innings to save a test match in the 2013 series too..although they scored way more than 58. Probably around 170.Top day, can't ask for more - dismantling the opposition in the first session and getting through the post-dinner period with little damage. Glad that the long time between tests hasn't diminished KW's game. Can't wait to see the highlights, especially Boult's spell.
Mohali 1999 was quite the reversal after NZ bowled out India for 83 on the first day (NZ were left batting out 135 overs for draw at the end), so hope England are just batted out of this once and for all tomorrow.
