From my perspective, the most annoying thing about this is the fact that it'll give the anti-England trolls and the brigade of pessimistic over-critical England fans a great excuse to talk about how **** England are regardless of the result.Literally every NZ poster on here is, from what I've seen. Hard not to be really, with zero preparation for arguably the four most key players. And in KW's case, he hasn't been getting any game time, let alone in the red ball format.
what a complete ****.Hardly the most reputable source, but not very wise:

No, he wasn't.Was Wagner bowling with as much control as his figures suggest?
Nah some of those could've been played at. Maybe they read up on Wagner and his plan of drawing batsmen into top edges.No, he wasn't.
He wasn't as bad as that compilation suggests either, but it's safe to say Worcs aren't the most macho batting side in the world, and a lot of Wagner's bouncers were too short for anyone in the world to have a go at.
That's always been the worry about Henry. Would still probably have him ahead of Wagner though.The aim for tomorrow will be to give Taylor and Anderson some substantial time in the middle. Latham is a bit of a worry, but he's got enough credit to hold onto one of the opener's spots. The third seamer battle is very intriguing. Wagner did himself a huge favor on day 3. Is there a worry that Wheeler and Henry lose some of their effectiveness after the new ball?
Yeah the tightness of Wheeler's pitch map (even with the new ball) has plenty of room for improvement. Edgar did say one of the reasons he impressed him enough to get a chance on this tour though was because he saw him reverse swinging the older ball. There he is last night with a 45-over old Duke -Is there a worry that Wheeler and Henry lose some of their effectiveness after the new ball?
