Finally some real cricket. This series should be a good contest.

Stokes back for England & Sodhi playing his first ODI in nearly a year for NZ.

Both teams will want to bounce back from disappointing T20I series. This is probably the strongest form of the game for both these sides, so it should be interesting.

Wasp suggesting England will get 268 - which won't be enough on this little postage stamp. Pitch a liyyle slow though and a bit of turrn for the spinners.

Stokes at the crease 8 from 12. He's got some time to get his eye in.

Yep, your lot's dastardly plan to rest him against Australia and save him for the main event looks like it's coming to fruition. Wouldn't be surprised if he scores a rapid fire century today. Despicable.

Stokes slogs across the line to a ball spinning away (googly) - straight up in the air.

Daft bugger.

Nah, he's right. Used to be a reasonable size but they decreased the size of the ground to fit in more space for spectators. Yeah, that was useful.

Buttler chips 3 consecutive 6's straight down the ground.

Rate sodhi but tends to lose it a bit - those 3 6s put England back in front

I know :lol: - poetic licence

But - if the boundary there was 70m plus 20m for the pitch - a 90m hit is just clearing the ropes.

When did he arrive in NZ? A 27 hour flight can't have helped.

I watched the Cricket Show during the break and saw Munro get out once and dropped a second time facing an over from Dai Henwood. It's hard to have confidence having seen that.

And Williamson's poor form continues. I think he's batted himself out of form generally by continuing playing T20 this year.

Munroe was the worst IMHO

The guy is in the form if his life but seems to be throwing his wicket away

Kw has looked out of form for a while

No - still don't trust my back to sit there all day. However, next test match (i.e. proper cricket) I will get there

All the best with that.

How can I change the thread title? Thought I just needed to edit it in the OP, but that doesn't seem to have worked...

Edit: Oh wait, the thread title on the index page has changed. Doesn't it change for the post headings?
