There isn't a bigger fanboi in cricket writing than Dobell. Would not surprise me if he sleeps with Jos Buttler posters on his wall.I see dobell still crying about pitches and the ball, for a senior cricinfo writer he really does come across like a sooky fan sometimes he was already giving the english quicks excuses after the tour game then basically spent the first three days of the series talking about how unfair the ball was (he clearly felt the game was a surefire draw) then englands batsmen got rolled on the same bowler killer deck deck and he stops talking about it till this test now he is saying nz are killing test cricket with these pitches.
England need to accept their bowlers aren't good enough without tons of assistance but their batsmen then aren't good enough to survive on those same bowler friendly tracks, there is no pitch that can overcome mediocrity as somebody from your side will be exposed.
