Finally Stokes gone, no 200 for him but England are still a chance of 400.

Moeen Ali gone now too, we might bowl England out.

Amid the carnage , Boult has been the pick of the bowlers today with his 3 wickets and economy rate.

Make that 4 wickets for Boult , with an economy rate below 6 an over. A chance for a Michelle Pfeiffer.

Another wicket for Boult, the NZ fightback is on.

Amid the carnage , Boult has been the pick of the bowlers today with his 3 wickets and economy rate.

Not surprising, he is still head and shoulders above the rest of our bowlers.

I actually Lister has bowled alright amid the carnage with figures of 67/2 going into his final over.

Trent Boult with a 5 wicket haul. His inclusion back in the white ball format is a huge coup.

NZ Need 369 to win the 3rd ODI.

Boult with a great yorker to get a 5'fer and bowl England out for 368, still a good score but less than it looked like being with Stokes there.

Terrible start like England, we need a big partnership like Malan and Stokes to get back into this.

Woakes a class above for England like Boult was for NZ, just too good.

The best 3 batting sides in ODI cricket by a fair margin are: India, Australia and England.

Im still skeptical of this English pace attack though against better batting lineups.

their attack is going to get absolutely tonked in the WC, not sure how they are going in second favourites tbh.

Being reigning champs helps. Their bowlers could concede 340 and you'd back their lineup to chase it too.

Yeah I mean we've said that with India for basically every world cup and they've won it once :)

Batting is for statistics, Bowling is to win matches ;)

Pakistan's plan is in reverse. They are a lot stronger in their bowling, and put priority on Shaheen Shah and Naseem to do the brunt of the work. This is so Babar and co and chase the runs down at their own pace. The Pakistani batsman don't make runs quickly, unlike the big three, they settle themselves and hope not to lose too many wickets up front for a quick dash to the finish
