England well ahead.

Re Chatfield, mentioned upthread, cricinfo has him being hit on the head by Peter Lever:

 -

His life was saved by the England physio, Bernard Thomas.

Botham later sledged Chatfield (a man 5 years his senior) with the line "Look, son, you've already died once in a test match!"

Rory, Chatfield didn't play in that game, it seems- Wellington 1978? The bowler who dismissed Willis was Hadlee. The chap looking like he's a bowler, I've no idea.

I'll tell you who it isn't- Glenn Turner. I assume he was in dispute with the board over money. For someone who wanted to be paid his worth and wasn't that bothered about playing for NZ, it is very suspicious he didn't join Packer, isn't it?

In that photo Geoff Howarth has the ball, Mark Burgess is in the cap, not sure about the others, (plus Bob Willis of course).

I love Test cricket but it sure can give you a slow death sometimes. This one's over, one-all, let's go to the decider, save ourselves the wait.

(Hang on, rain forecast for tomorrow ... give me that straw).

Glenn Turner was preparing for his benefit year with Worcs in 1978 (that's why he missed NZ's tour later that year). He was pretty single/bloody-minded about such things.

I've just watched today's highlights and England's fielding is back to mid-90s quality. How many dropped catches, fluffed stops, missed stumpings and stupid overthrows? Phil Tufnell could make a DVD purely out of today's play.

England's fielding may have been bad yesterday, but it was excellent at Hamilton.

Did I mention that Andrew Strauss has changed his grip? If you look at a DvD of the 2005 Ashes series, his bat was much more open then. Now it's turned in, so I think it must be much more difficult to play shots square of the wicket on the off now. Which is odd because that was always his great strength, I thought.

And so, finally, they win. Really looking forward to the third test.

England will certainly be looking forward to it now. Mills and Oram are both out injured.

Whatever your favourite bookie is offering for an England win, take it.

Apparently Southee took 17 wickets at 6.64 in the u19 World Cup, which sounds Hadlee-esque until you remember some of the teams competing in it.

Give the lad a chance- he looked tidy in the T20 game against England.

Looks like the spinner Patel is back for Mark Gillespie. Agree you have to fancy England though.

He seems to be considered a big prospect, I'm not running him down. But, y'know, I'd be more worried if those wickets hadn't come against the likes of Nepal and Malaysia.

"Apparently Southee took 17 wickets at 6.64 in the u19 World Cup..."

Well yes, but my mate Pete was the leading wicket taker in the previous u19 World Cup. He now plays his cricket in Amsterdam.

So, you know...

We won't expect him to dominate international cricket for a decade, but he might cause Vaughan and co. a few problems. Like uptown Boyd did in the World Cup.

And the boy Southee done good. England teetering on the brink of defeat at 4-1, confirming my confident prediction up the page.

Bloody hell! 4-2! See, I always rated this guy I've never heard of.
