      Six from Stokes brings it down to single figures required.

      We've won!!!

      What a f**king Test and what a chase. After that first innings, I didn't see us winning this one but well done to the boys.

      SPecial test match that the stats will be off the scale. Ben Stokes must wonder what the fuss is all about Captaining England Joe Root must be thinking whats changed all of a sudden.
      ! win in 17 tests then two in a week or so. England won that because of attitude and being positive long may it continue

      That was brilliant stuff after tea. Great atmosphere. I went to see Lancashire and also games at the hundred last season and its great seeing families at sport. You never see it at football anymore because it's no longer in the real world. Will be going more games this year and the test at Lancashire as well against SA.

      could still go either way if we attack but the Draw would be OK being 1 up so far. How brave is Stokes I think one of Englands problems down the years has been not having an identity and being indecisive. I would love to see them go for it but it seems unlikely

      So happy to be wrong that was exactly how you should approach a test match it was there to be won and if they tried and failed then so be it at least they had a go.

      What a f**king day!

      Felt lucky to be in the ground to witness that, shame there were some that decided to take a ticket but not turn up though.

      That was remarkable today.

      299/5 off 50 overs with no field restrictions and bowlers allowed to bowl wider.

      ODI stuff

      I know it’s only Holland we’re playing in this one day series but to hit 498 from 50 overs is f**king remarkable.

      World record for us!!!

      Should of sent for Bumble (10:33 in the video but I would recommend watching it all if people haven't already on Mikey Holding and David Lloyd)

      Good opening session for us in the final Test this morning. They’re 65-3

      What has been incredibly noticeable though is just how far the commentary levels have fallen since Gower, Beefy, Bumble and Mikey called it a day. There’s very little laughing or banter anymore and it seems even the nostalgic talks aren’t as entertaining as they used to be.

      The modern day world doesn’t help matters of course because we’ve got to have commentators who tick boxes now rather than those who may be best for the job. And the constant rotation of bringing in someone for one or two days doesn’t help. I’m all for keeping things fresh with a different voice but not if it means the enjoyment suffers because of it.

      Worst culprit is Nick f**king Knight who is the equivalent of Ken Doherty on the snooker as far as I’m concerned. Talks like his opinion is gospel and then won’t shut up about it for a good ten minutes. But most of the new lot (my generation of players) aren’t up to scratch on the mic. The one I did like was Rob Key but he’s obviously busy doing other things right now.

      I don't see how Aleem Dar can say he's inside edged that LBW appeal. You can see front from the front on camera that it's nowhere near his bat.

      Unlucky Potts, should of had your first wicket of the Test there.

      Jamie Overton just got his first Test wicket. Conway dragging onto his own stumps.

      bit of a horror show for England Batsmen but a masterclass of bowling by NZ to be fair the 4 wickets down looked almost unplayable.

      Top order have failed again and Stokes and Bairstow are trying to rebuild by playing 20/20 mode.

      I’m all for the aggressive approach, especially as we’ve won the series, but if this ends with us seven or eight down before we’ve got to a hundred then I hope they’ll be as criticised as much as they were praised for the second innings at Trent Bridge. There’s a time and place for this kind of attacking play.

      Completely agree, there's positivity and then there's utter madness.

      Got to pick your moments to be aggressive.

      Stokes and Foakes gone to Wagner in his first over.

      55-6 and suddenly this aggressive approach doesn’t look the right tactic on this pitch

      Stokes will get away with it though because he’s the darling of England cricket - especially within the media. They’ll all praise the approach rather than give him the real criticism it deserves.

      Overton lbw first ball given not out but New Zealand have reviewed it. Pitched outside leg, not out

      Overton playing a blinder with Bairstow now on 74 with Bairstow  on 88 great partnership and loving the positive attitude going for every ball not in a manic way but if its there to be hit these lads are hitting it 204 -6

      series avg so far 4.4 per over  . Seeing someone come in like Overton bowl well then do well with the bat is really nice to see. When the chance comes these lads have to take it I always remember how Trent started his first game and Neville was pissing himself laughing well he isnt laughing now.
      After a terrible  morning its now 210-6 119 behind
