Good tidy bowling from Plunkett there.

Good fielding in the inner ring.

The sun coming out, hopefully negating the swing of the ball slightly later on.

Big wicket. My gut feel was it was missing.

Got 'im! Looked a bit high in truth, above the knee roll.

We are choking them.  Keep it up.  First boundary for a while there!

That's poor really.  Having the technology available and letting a howler like that stand.  It's a World Cup final ffs.

Poor from Stokes. Neesham is a dangerous player.

Yes it's a bit odd that cricket, a game well suited to breaks where decisions can be easily reviewed, severely limits the number of times it can be used.  Football on the other hand, a game which is much more free-flowing, uses VAR all the time.

This the key partnership now for the NZ because another man coming in will need a bit of time to get going.  These two have to take risks so I hope we don't start bowling half way down the wicket.

Great variations from Plunkett but Neesham gifted that wicket. Still I will take as many as I can get!
