good to see ronchi in the squad, could help strengthen the batting, though reckon he'd be more value in the test side than the shorter formats.

did Vettori retire from Tests?

Yeah wondering myself, didn't think he had...Martin has been decent though and vettori's wicket along ability has lessened over the recent years I think so maybe he was omitted due to that....

NZ series more than Ashes entree - Hesson (http://www.espncricinfo.com/england-v-new-zealand-2013/content/story/633388.html)


"We don't really have anything to do with the Ashes," Kane Williamson, the captain in McCullum's absence, said. It helps, no end, that the series played during March between these two teams was very competitive. Talk about flat pitches killing the game was off the mark - weather was the bigger factor in the first two Tests - and New Zealand came within one wicket of a famous victory in Auckland. That is enough for this return contest to be given the respect it deserves.

Always root for the underdogs. Not a fan of England. I respect their players a lot but I'm not a fan of their style. NZ has been very impressive so far though. We have a lot of hard work to do if we want to beat this team in October. Hope the planning and perpetration starts now.

Bronlie takes a stunner as Trotty goes. Boult is on song.

May 16, 2013, 09:37 AM
So does Trott

53.5
Boult to Trott, OUT, oh what a cracker, edged and a superb catch at third slip. That is angled in towards Trott's middle and leg stumps, he's gone back to block but it has suddenly left him and taken a thick outside edge that is quite brilliantly held by a diving Brownlie, getting across wonderfully well to take it inches from the ground
IJL Trott c Brownlie b Boult 39 (96b 6x4 0x6) SR: 40.62

Key man Ross. We are doomed against NZ. They are very good against spin too. But the key for us will be how they adapt after 3 series of battling and practising so much against pace bowling and then to spin in BD.

Patetic morning for nz..Match evenly poised still.

Nek minnint 89 down 35 behind..I still believe they are beatable for us. If our bowlers can keep it tight and not ball hit me balls often they will collapse and if our batsmen can survive they're pacers we can win, Boult highly underrated, brilliant bowler.

Rutherford, Taylor, Williamson, McCulum is all they got for me.

NZ definitely is beatable. Remember they're #8 and we're #9. Then factor in the fact that they're playing in BD and the advantage goes down even more. It's about us working really hard being focused throughout the tour.

it's time we open an early celibration thread for our 1st Test series win vs NZ.

NZ batting is pathetique, they can't play spin, can't play pace.
They badly need Vettori & Jesse Ryder.
And why on earth Vettori isn't playing for NZ ? it has been such a long time.

Our spinners took 26 out of the 35 wickets we got against them. Don't know where you got that our pacers did the damage.

We need our bowling attack to do the same. Have the spinners attack and have our pacers support them.

Our batting needs to do much better though. Shakib was the only 1 that batted well. Imrul and SN gave decent support and the rest were pretty awful. We need more performers with the bat then that.

Remember NZ's blue jerseys from the 90s? They have had black, blue and ash/white in their jerseys over the years.
I hate this jersey of England. Their dark blue jerseys from 2010 were the best IMO.

They always pull above their weight but never wins anything. Guptil is on fire. 200 in ODIs seems reachable by many if the pitches continue to act like this. I thought the bowlers would have the upper hand in this version.

Kohli, Kartick, SL batsmen, played in the same venue where CT will be held.
