wagner is the key over here, not boult.If Boult isn't fit it will be a struggle for them.
He didn't really do it again.wagner is the key over here, not boult.
boult is obviously an excellent bowler but wagner has time and again proven he can persist (he’s done it again in this match) in a flat pitch and find success. I was a long time doubter of him but he’s convinced me.
so what.He didn't really do it again.
England could of batted for another 2 days if they wanted to, they started slogging to accelerate the game.
Given his domestic record I find ut Gard to believe that raval gets this many chances but Munro can’t get a look inAnother failure from, Raval, surely he can't hold his spot for the Australian test series now, they'd be better off going back to someone like Rutherford
England probably the only team that can win this test now, NZ will just be looking to bat out a draw and win the series.
I don't doubt that Wagner will be their best bowler here.so what.
someone put their hand up to keep pounding in and again it was wagner and as a consequence NZ’s predicament is much safer than it would have been if they were chasing 150-200 to make England bat again.
on the back of 5-44 last week.
Every one of his 9 five wicket hauls have come on a surface that has produced at least one score of 437 or higher.
I shake my head at how telegraphed his wickets are at times but he is a proven performer on batting tracks. That’s invaluable when you come to australia
I haven’t looked into it in depth but I think their method is a lot more un-poaching like than England’s.NZ is like England light really going down the poaching pathway with Devon Conway looking likely to add to the growing list of players who started their first class overseas and moved to NZ to play for the black caps. This list includes current test players Neil Wagner and Colin DeGrandhome and former player like Luke Ronchi and Grant Elliott
Look the Plunket Shield isn’t anywhere near as strong as the County Championship. I agree that New Zealand aren’t actively trying to poach players but they are leaving spots open to qualify players.I haven’t looked into it in depth but I think their method is a lot more un-poaching like than England’s.
They have a generally weaker competition so it’s a useful alternative for players seeking an option if they’re disillusioned with the quota system like wagner
And Raval has been averaging 8 in FC cricket over the last 12 months. Think they have Conway earmarked to come in next year when he becomes eligibleHe’s been given one test - 6 years ago - to prove himself. Given how long they persisted with guptill that seems harsh
that was always the question, very easy to get wickets at home with the Duke ball where it moves. Lets see him do it overseasOf course he’s allowed down tests and can’t dominate every match but it is interesting the series Archer has had. 22 wickets in his first four tests. Now just two so far for 209 runs in this series.
