What a scorecard to wake up to!
Anderson and Finn are in gun form at the moment, can't wait to see them opening the bowling in the Tests.
Looks like after the NZ fans hyped up their LOI capabilities, it's going to be 2 England series wins out of 2 on this tour.
I would give MoS to McCullum. We would have won all three of the games by the late afternoon had he not featured.
The Tests might just be worth living unsocial hours for. I'm so happy for Finn, I hope he continues to improve and cements a place.
I think it's a 10pm to 5pm deal for us lol. And I work 9-5 in the AM Monday to Friday. Hmm....
BTW I don't mind a bit of Yorkshire bias. Yorkshire is one of the counties which has given the most to English cricket over a long period. Meanwhile the main reason Compton is being supported is because he is a Saffer.
If you're going to kick him out, at least name a better player than Bairstow to replace him. Both of them were mediocre, and at least Compton has the weight of the most recent FC runs to fall back on.
Before Compton replaced him for dubious reasons and scratched his way through a series in India, Bairstow confidently scored a 90 and a 50 in his one Test against South Africa, who have by far the best bowling attack at the moment. If that's mediocre, I'd like to see what impressive is. Moreover he is young and can be built into something even better. That's enough potential to justify some middle order faith.
