Not a bad effort against the equivalent of a Birmingham Parks League team.

Theyre missing a few players. I assumed that Colin Ackermann was injured, but hes playing in the Blast for Leicestershire

Not sure why Timm van der Gugten isnt playing. Just those two would make a difference

I can see Scott Edwards getting a look at a higher level, either in England or Australia

A lot of the younger players (there were 3 19 year olds in the team for the first match) will end up playing county cricket as well I suspect.

It'll be more difficult in the future, since I think such international players would be classed as overseas players even if they hold a UK passport.

I'm pretty sure that I saw where a couple of the Ireland team had to either retire from internationals in order to remain classified as a domestic player or opt to play internationally and be classified as overseas (even if they held a UK passport).

I'm just back from the Netherlands. I saw both Friday and Sundays game.
The atmosphere was amazing, so many Dutch came out to watch and they are great fun. Had lots of problems on the Friday, too few bars and too many people but by Sunday they had arranged for 2 more bars and things were far better.

As a short tour I would certainly go again.

Nice touch that Mark Alleyne presented David Payne with his cap

Interesting to see how he does, as if hes successful he does offer a different dimension. He can bowl quick, which we are missing. Hes also handy with the bat, which again helps the lower order.

I was at the Hampshire vs Surrey Twenty20 game on Sunday and I was impressed with his bowling. Looked rapid and bowled smart as well.

Just caught up with the highlights of the 3rd ODI today.  At this moment, I would we've probably got the best red ball (Root) and white ball (Buttler) batsmen in the world.

Conway is a good first Test wicket for Overton.

How bizarre was Nicholls dismissal, can't remember ever seeing anything like that in a Test match. What would have happened if the ball had hit the umpire instead?

That fifth wicket dismissal has to go down as a freak! Nicholls looked like getting a boundary off Leach, but somehow hit non-striker Mitchell's bat and it ended up caught by Lees in the perfect position! Bizarre....

law 33.2.2.3 states that a catch will be fair if:

"A fielder catches the ball after it has touched the wicket, an umpire, another fielder, a runner or the other batter."

Honours even after day one. It was disappointing not to take any more wickets, but you have to give credit to Mitchell and Blundell who held us up again. The Kiwis have looked pretty average with the bat apart from when they have been batting. Weve also looked clueless and devoid of ideas during their stands in all three tests.

Shockingly bad captaincy not to bring on a frontline bowler straight after Tea to put pressure on the new batsman. Instead, we had second-rate stuff from a part-timer to play them into form. Awful!!

Didn't Stokes think it might be a good idea to review a more-or-less plumb LBW decision seeing as it involved NZ's best batsman for the series?!
