Been a real topsy turvy match. More drama to come I expect, but I think we'll see it home.

Shows the folly of dropping Broad and Anderson too.

Impressive run chase by England, not a 4th/5th day pitch, but still expected New Zealand to win by 50+ runs when the innings started.

Surprised but it's the First time Root has scored a century in the 4th innings.

Yeah it was a big mistake dropping them in the first place. I kind of feel the selectors/captain were hoping for the Anderson/Broad effect when they first came in for Harmison and Hoggard in the NZ series many years ago. Sadly so many of our seamers are injury prone so there isn’t any outstanding candidates. I can see Anderson retiring after this summer but think Broad still has some time to go. Potts looks an outstanding prospect.

Great batting by Root and Foakes today to get us over the line. Hopefully we can carry on winning now!

Kane Williamson out of the 2nd Test which starts later today after testing positive for Covid-19.

Very impressive again but think the outcome would've been different if Kyle Jamieson had been available to bowl in the second innings.

They basically chased the score down against 3 frontline bowlers(and two of those not fully up to speed because of recent injuries) and a part-time spinner who has only taken 30 wickets in 97 first-class matches.
