At least we have the moral high ground, having got rid of Robinson.

I predict an England win

The bowling actually lost this match not just the batting.

England could not bowl full and swing the ball, NZ are masters at it.

Strange as for a period after a ball change our bowlers were all over NZ but they weathered it.

So why, even Sir Alastair Cook does not understand it.

This is the NZ second string bowling attack that has humiliated us.

If anyone was watching after the close of play Nasser was commenting on the poor batting display and he was obviously very angry and didn't try and hide it

After his suspension and demonisation, Robinson announced that he was taking a 'small break' from cricket, but no one had expected that the English cricket team had also decided to do the same thing.

That's not "strange"; that's simply how test cricket used to be played, and in New Zealand's case it's how it still is played.

We need to snap out of this virtue signalling crap.
It's all well and good lining up in t shirts before a game and clapping, to reinforce the decision to drop the outstanding bowler from the previous game for some childish indiscretion 8 years previously.
The Aussies got caught cheating massively, and managed to restrict the fallout to 3 players, somehow.
They will probably now hand us our arses on a plate, while we chip away at our team from within.

The new culture of censorship and fear has obviously helped.

 


I used to put the manager's name in front of Red and Blue but got fed up with changing it. If someone cool becomes our manager then maybe..

Red and Blue Army!

I've said it many times over the years but the level of money paid to the ECB and the standard of cricket produced from it isn't value for money.

These guys are simply paid too well for their jobs. There is a softness there....and recent events have shown an over concern for events outside the cricket field rather than the pure meritocracy for success on the cricket field.

James Coney, former New Zealand cricketer sums it up well.

'From an outsider's point of view it is very difficult to understand how you can surround yourself with so many coaches, helpers and so many staff and so many facilities and so much money and so many good contracts and perform like that.'

Really why only a 2-match series?

I am just up for Joe and the lads to re-group and go again, with some of the established test match players back.

NZ are certainly worthy of more as well.

I've been supporting Olly Stone for some time now and while he didn't do badly in this test I was disappointed with his pace.

He's meant to be quick....yet he spent much more time bowling around 85 and under than in the high eighties/low nineties.

I'm beginning to think quick bowling is becoming unfashionable in England.

Watching Sussex yesterday I was quite impressed with George Garton- left arm quick. He looks to have a bit of bite to his game.
There was a nice moment in the game when Archie Lenham, 16 year old leg- spinner, son of Neil & grandson of Les, dropped a catch then was given the next over and took a wicket with his first ball.
