Well it appears from the scorecard that after day one the only way the NZ team is going to save the test is to hope for four days of rain.

What a blow out and pleased to see that Anderson has shown his class once more with the ball.

Poor performance from the NZ batsman....thank goodness a ex SA has at least reached double figures.

Never underestimate our capacity for a huge batting collapse……

Never ever argue with a man who supports such a team.

The new England manager must be numb after that display at bat.

Too funny, just after the innings collapse of the Kiwis everyone was praising the impact of England's new cricket Messiah......a premature call we now know, they don't call it the funny game for nothin. Not knocking Brendon McCullum, I doubt any other coach would do any better, it's all about the neutral strip in the middle, without it's antics cricket would be predictable....boring. Instead we all glued to our sets with interest.

Weather permitting there'll be a result.....dare to make a prediction?:angel:

Win for England although NZ are digging in  this innings.

But still a long way to go.

And in the middle of the  game the cricket world paused for 23 seconds to pay tribute to the legend, Warnie. What a wonderful gesture.

For once, i agree with you Dentsie.

I watched Warne bowl on three different continents and at many games.

People say it all the time, but when he had the ball in-hand, it always felt like a wicket was coming.

I’ve sat in the stands many times and been in total awe of how i, and the spectators around me, could feel the pressure that he was putting on the opposition. If you’ve ever watched him play live, then you probably know the feeling. He gets chucked the ball and suddenly the atmosphere in the ground changes.

His record aside, the influence the man had on the entire stadium was a true phenomenon. Something that he kept consistent throughout his career while others only briefly, and at their peak, ever managed.

We’ll always be in Australia’s debt for delivering to us the weird and chubby rebel that was Warne.

Gulp! :(

Respect for the Great One at all levels in the cricket world and supporters is great to see.

With regards the 1st Test all I can say about the England batting is Oops!

What a performance from the two Kiwi's with the bat and now with the ball.

They saved the day and perhaps the test with their contributions.

Well played guys.

Phew, victory at last for England.

Not a Root's fan but his second innings batting sure illustrates his batting skills and maturing when under pressure as he was in this test.
