Amongst other things, yeah.

I'll p.m. you the details if the rumors prove to be true.

Bowlers at least seem to be getting their act together so far. NZ 48-3.

A fourth goes in. Count me in for scurrilous rumours about Ryder.

I bet it's to do with armed raids on donut factories.

I love Ryder and Rob Key, they give me hope.

True or not, I'd welcome a PM, YOPJ.

Several good performances and a good result for England today, especially as Collingwood had said after the last ODI that the team's aim was to 'restore dignity'. Nice to see an English sports team setting realistic targets for once.

PM please. A trouble shared is a trouble doubled.

Nice performance by England so far, a good innings for Mustard before Ryder had him for a light snack between meals. His bowling is reminiscent of the great Ian 'Bully' Austin.

I can't help thinking the 17 runs Mustard fell short of the century may make the difference between him and Ambrose starting the tests. It'll be a shame if he doesn't - his keeping is in a different class to Jones or Prior and he looks like he'd be good enough to average 30 or so at number 7.

Woeful bowling and fielding performance from New Zealand, it has to be said. But England took advantage well.

Collingwood's suddenly turned into Shahid Afridi. Loads of sixes and no fours at all in his knock.

Crucially, McCullum has just been stumped, when he was looking good. He might have got away with it if he hadn't started walking, and then changed his mind.

60-40 England, NZ don't quite have the middle order Cairns/McMillan bludgers that they used to.

An exciting end to the game, NZ looked like they were going to make england pay for being too wayward in their bowling, Anderson in particular was poor, going for 86!


BUT Vettori should have been given out, his bat was in the air on a runout decision that was given not out. What's the point in the 3rd umpire if they get it plainly wrong? He hit a four off the next ball and got the match tyeing run. England should be really pissed off when they find out.

Well, if you got up early, go back to bed. NZ should cruise this. On second thoughts, watch: McCullum is doing a Gilchrist.

England's innings was an advert for 20-20, some big hits at the end, preceded by 30 overs of dawdling.

Evening TR.

No problems, I always get up this early. Listening on the BBC.

McCullum is smacking Jimmy Anderson all over the place. Exactly how short are those square boundaries?

Heh. That's cricket on rugby grounds for you (although Christchurch isn't as bad as Auckland).

Very funny run-out there. Ryder's bat gets stuck in pitch, he arrives without it.

A quick gloat-post, and the runs stop, wickets fall. I never learn.

For the second game in a row, a Kiwi umpire has given the Kiwi captain not out, when he clearly was.

(insert photo of Gatting and Shakoor Rana here)
