Pretty much all English batters gave away their wickets, pietersen got a good ball, Compton was lazy and the rest handed in their wickets.

Only 1 six was hit in whole days play, and this happened.

20.5
Panesar to Rutherford, SIX, floated up outside off and Rutherford bangs it into the stands over long on, clean as a whistle strike

I think someone in the crowd has taken a nasty blow on the head on the grass banks, flush in the head, ouch...

Compton has been a great find. He's another Trott type player. Extremely boring to watch but is very effective and consistent.

Gowza
March 13, 2013, 10:51 PM
Compton has the same body shape as pietersen. He's starting to come good but I'm sure the coaches and selectors will be hoping for him to up that strike rate, might be ok against NZ but against better teams they might need their runs scored more quickly, plus in today's game a 40 strike rate is very low. Denis was a apparently a genius when it came to scoring.

Apparently the Auckland quake was 4.0 on the scale (which I'm told isn't too bad). No damage reported. As for the Wellington weathere, here's Zozza: "Latest forecast from MetService for tomorrow: Rain becoming persistent. Morning southerly change. Issued: 4:54pm 17 Mar - sorry England, but unless you bowl out NZ tonight, it's a draw."

This sort of bizarre batting is the reason why I hate watching cricket. WTF was that. They just goofed around for over 2 hours. They should've declared or pushed for few runs or at least occupy. They were doing NONE of that. I don't see the point in that.

Tiger Manc
March 23, 2013, 09:48 PM
The next 43 runs are going to be massive for New Zealand. England are currently 200/7. If New Zealand can make England follow on they have a rare opportunity to win the series 1-0. Getting rid of Root will be key.

Tiger Manc
March 23, 2013, 10:09 PM
England bowled out for 204. Surprisingly Kiwis decide not to enforce the follow on. Maybe they wanted to give their bowlers a rest and make England bat last on a crumbling pitch.

Dilscoop
March 24, 2013, 12:57 AM
This is turning out to be a dumb call. Should've just bowled them out again. If these were 3 English wickets then NZ would've been 7 away from a series win.

NZ have got some quality pacers, Boult and Southee have been brilliant this Test, Wagner did well in the 1st Test and then there's Bracewell who's not playing in this series, and who is rated the best of the lot! This side seem to be under-rated, and when they tour Bangladesh later in the year I think some of those who think that we will roll them over like we did in the ODIs in 2010 may be in for a surprise.

I agree. Their pace attack looks class. We have to create spin friendly pitches and look to spin them out similar to what India did to Australia.

Sorry but never. These sort of games and atmosphere is only created by the "original" teams. Hell, I highly doubt India-Pak-SL can do something similar. Their games get dull from the toss or one sided.

This would've been lot better if it was full house.

I think they should have bowled Martin for the last over even though he was bowling bad all game, Monty can't play spin to save his life and all it needed was one ball in the right area.

Sorry but never. These sort of games and atmosphere is only created by the "original" teams. Hell, I highly doubt India-Pak-SL can do something similar. Their games get dull from the toss or one sided.

This was a nail-biting series winning draw that I will remember all my life! We played out 142 overs. Javed Omar and Nafees Iqbal batted 82 odd overs for an opening partnership of 133. JO scored 43 of 258 balls while Nafees made 121 of 358. Best rearguard action ever witnessed in a match saving cause.

NZ have been doing very well in Test cricket the past year or so. Wins in AUS and SL, and a near win vs England + 2 draws...most of that without Vettori. They will be a stern Test when they come knocking in October. We should give them a 3 Test tour.

I thought England would miss someone like Collngwood for this test but Ian Bell and Prior proved to be equally good at stonewalling attacks to save the game. I wish we had someone like that in our line up who could simply bat for 200-300 balls when the match needed to be saved
