both start their reigns with England cricket today one as the gaffer and one as the new skipper.


can they do anything with this poor test side of late?

we will see soon enough.

McCullum gives his thoughts in the below Sky interview.

it has to be said New Zealand his home country will provide a tough start for him, Stokes & England this summer.


I will be looking forward to this series on Sky.

CMON ENGLAND!

36/6 cmon England what dream start to his Test career for the young Durham fast bowler Potts.


You just hope if we skittle these out quickly - we don't fold like a pack of cards ourselves - it is our batting that has cost us of late afterall.

19/0 - not a bad start from the England batsman - let's hope we can bat both big and long like a proper test batting side should

CMON ENGLAND !

Did very well  souey souey souey souey

Just terrible. Five fucking days, lads. You’ve got five days. Wafting outside off stump like Gower on fucking acid. Dig in, bore them to death, amass 490, thank you and goodnight. That Lees looks gash for an opener

monkey


yes, I agree with those above - we will be lucky to see three days here - add that into low ticket sales, and what a damp squib this Lords test match could turn into..

a win is a win but a test match is a test match that should provide long entertainment in getting that win.


Forget the Black Caps for one minute - this England side or group of players of late just cant bat!

an excellent day with the ball and the openers at one point especially Crawley had me thinking we might be on for a decent score here....

A good opening day in one aspect but that's not really what test cricket is about - wickets tumbling like that in one day. That's not proper test cricket for me!

Well done Potts on debut i will say that

a good comeback from the New Zealand middle order - they've more than made a game of it and have taken control of the game with that cracking partnership.

it also puts the spotlight right on the English batsmen win or lose they need to get close at the very worst to any New Zealand total. Just to prove they can bat...I initially thought the way the wickets went down it was a bowlers wicket not anymore after seeing them 2 New Zealanders dig in and bags some big runs when needed.

it could now turn into a useful test match to watch...weather also permitting of course

i agree with Collingwood it won't happen overnight, but equally some improvement needs to be shown by the English batsmen as things stand..

I will be watching the footy but I've got to say this game has the makings of a good finish.

We should get a result win or lose - it could tell us a lot about this English side batting-wise - or will it be the same old same old.....and we collapse at some point batting.

Time to step up to the party England - I'm going for the England win - i will equally take it as a positive if we can get close to the black caps total given our recent poor displays with the bat...

Game on as they say and let the best team win!

CMON ENGLAND!

2 down as I type - lost

it could turn into a bit of a nail-biter here.

It's down to Root now - he just needs to keep a partner.

these two have to see tonight out - otherwise its curtains for me

I know it's a cricketing cliche but what a first hour in the morning we will have. whatever side wins that hour and you will go on to win the test for me.

we need Root in situ after that first hour for England to go on and win it...

he is still Englands' top dog with the bat..

its turned out to be a good first test after all
