Must be a Chrome issue.  Watching it now on Microsoft Edge.  Cheers.  Rant over.

Iím really underwhelmed by our performance so far, this is a good platform that we have allowed them to build. From the attack only Woakes deserves any credit so far.

4.28 run rate at the moment. That's absolutely fine.  NZ are going to have to take some risks. 77 for 1 from 18.  That's a good start from England.

That said, I would like to see us pitch it up more.

Yep other then Woakes the bowlers havenít been great. Weíre in some difficulty here. Bowling far too short.

Iím not so sure. We donít look at all threatening with the ball and itís all a bit flat. Most of our bowlers seem to be having a collective off day.

Agreed, weíre not creating anything here. That run rate is fine for them, because itís going up.

We are a bit inconsistent to be fair.  I'm often critical of our bowling as we don't seem to have a plan and I think Morgan should be telling the bowlers to use Woakes's performance as a yardstick.  Rashid drives me fucking mad with his floaty shit.

We need to start mixing up the bowlers to try and buy a wicket. Iíd stick Archer back on and ask him to bowl fast and straight for a couple of overs. As long as he pitches it up!

NZ look good for around 250 at the moment. That's ok. It's getting warmer and batting will be easier as the day progresses.

I think they look good for 300+. Theyíre accelerating and weíre not carrying a threat at the moment.

Giving them too many runs. This is too easy.
