JD's rubbish. How does he get in the team?

 

Awful batting down the line again from all the usual suspects.

 

Still, no-one cares. It's all a warm up for the dreadfully important Champions Trophy coming up.

 

Thank God for test cricket.

Those red outfits are horrible as well.

 

Though I can't blame the English for wanting to look Welsh.

An excellent day's cricket.  NZ just got better and better in their batting as their confidence grew, I think if this was the old 55 over ODIs then Guptill would have been closer to 250 to 270 the way he was seeing and hitting the ball.  Some of the bowling from England was just woeful, Anderson was the only one who looked genuinely threatening.

England have worn red before although I wish they'd stick to the decent dark blue.

As you are no doubt aware the team called England does also represent Wales too. Unfortunately for reasons of space only the important countries are listed on the name.

And whatever colour we're in we still can't seem to get the hang of 50 over cricket.

You're right, Wales and South Africa rarely get a name-check.

It's damn hard to fit this on a scorecard though: "England, Wales, one Scot in a generation and Anyone Else We Can Poach From Other Countries"

You'll be believing that the All Blacks are basically the Samoan first XV next.

England could do worse than bring in Graham Napier in the limited overs game.

That said he has performed well in all forms of the game this season.

7-32 against a thrashed Surrey side in the 40 over discipline tonight at Chelmsford, including four

wickets in as many balls in a maiden over.

I'm not sure he could cut it at international level. Does he bring more to the team than Other bits and pieces players Wright, Bopara(okay more of a batsman but still in and around the England set up) or Yardy?

Id certainly have him in instead of Bopara. As I say this year he has excelled with bat and ball at each discipline.

He is prertty pacey as well and would certainly be a better bet currently than a Dernbach and even batting wise 

currently than Morgan, Needless to say though just talking in terms of the limited over game.

Plus, he's in form. Most of England's current one-day side isn't in form. Given that key players are out of form (most of the batsmen, all the bowlers bar Jimmy and Swann), England could do worse than call on Napier.

5 overs gone, England have scored a massive 4 runs so far for the loss of one wicket.  I'm not sure if NZ will be able to keep up with that fantastic run rate.

That was a better finish to the England innings. :)

Incredible hitting by Buttler, especially against the world class Southee at the death. He really rattled the Kiwi bowlers. Magnificent entertainment.

Yes, it was astonishing. It's a pity England dawdled and lost wickets just before the Power Play (usual doziness from Ian Ronald Bell), as otherwise they might have posted 300-plus.

Kiwis 84-2 after nearly 14 overs. Tredwell and Bresnan have pulled the run rate back a bit and - shock horror - Guptill's out!
