      That LBW non decision just before tea was an absolute killer. Not sure how that was umpires call when the the whole ball was hitting the stumps let alone the bails.

      This is a grim watch now for an England fan. Pant smashing Jimmy and whats left of Ben Stokes all round the park. The decision to play 2 bowlers and all rounder and Dom Bess backfiring.

      Rishabh Pant is some player like, frightening where he could be in a few years time.

      Poor selection once again from Root and England


      Flat wicket , sun shining and 4 seamers picked with only a little bit of pace

      Broad should have missed out with Leach player and Overton provides a variety

      Overton bowls about 12 mph

      Not good enough at test level

      Agree that currently the bowling attack looks a little one dimensional though

      Overton is perfect for English conditions hence his wicket haul and currently the top wicket taker in the county champs


      Pace isn’t everything - just look at McGrath , put the ball in the right place and use the conditions and you will take wickets , they didn’t today

      You can't compare Overton and McGrath mate, and you can't compare the County circuit to test match players

      He isn't quick or skillful enough for test match cricket  time will tell like obviously but I've watched all his tests and he doesn't look dangerous at that level

      Might as well throw Luke Fletcher in as well if you're going for Overton and we'll be back in the early 90s before we know it

      Overton has put a yard of pace on over the six months or so. Batting is England's biggest issue. Two down already

      He may have done but he isn’t good enough at international level
      Brilliant county bowler mind

      You ask test match batsmen if they’d want to face him and they’d lick their lips

      Agree on the batting. Sibley is f**king toss
      We’re two or three down and chasing most games

      4 or 5 of these wickets have been given away in this innings.

      England now trying to save the match so the wafty drives serving absolutely no purpose at this stage.

      Some of the front line batsman have been very guilty but Mark Wood there too doesn't need to be a good batsman to get his mindset right and play for the bloke who's 87 not out. But no 3rd ball has a waft at it, and now Broad is in doing the exact same thing.

      Bit of a piss take this side by the way. A few injuries but I'm sure a few of the players are missing for other reasons.

      Sadly Friday's weather has ruined a good game of cricket, where New Zealand have been well on top, most of the game.

      England right to shut this game down in my opinion, but only because of the ability of their lineup rather than the situation of the match at tea.

      There's not much depth in this lineup and not many fast scorers in the side.

      Spot on, plus can you imagine if an already frail line up just folded like a pack of cards

      Yep, no chance really without Buttler/Stokes/Bairstow to move things along a bit.

      Fair play to Williamson and New Zealand for dangling the carrot though, plenty of teams wouldn't have done it so early.

      Hopefully we get a full 5 days in the Second Test.

      Grim few hours for England this.

      A few looking well out of their depth in test cricket.

      Fight back is on 300 in first innings always makes for an interesting game.

      Need to finish this tail off.
