I have been surprised by the lack of interest in the cricket on here recently. Wasn't this test the first time big crowds were allowed at an event for months, and isn't it exciting to be playing one of the top two teams in the world? Or at least the B team from one of the top countries.
That will add some interest Ian. So if the game doesn't last for 15 overs today you get your money back? If the last England wicket falls inside the first couple of overs you would think it would be all over inside 15 overs.And yes Kevin 18,000 allowed in. The Eric Hollis stand have been in good voice. I decided against tickets when the uncertainty of COVID was more apparent. I took the plunge on Friday and bought two tickets for today for Gabi and I to sit in the sunshine and have a day out together, a rare event still. Watching England collapse last night was hard. If Root was still there I might have bothered, I’m not now going to drive in, park, queue etc etc for an hours play. Will they drag it out till 15.1 overs to avoid a full ticket refund?
I'm sure there will be more than enough self flagellation Mark, so no need for others to join in,.Yesterday I received a patronising message, from my (now ex) mate in Canberra, telling how much he admires NZ cricket & that they are more likeable than 'his' team. I'd much prefer good ol' fashioned Pommie bashing.
Even worse, I'm staying up tonight to cheer on England against Croatia. That should totally confuse you.Yesterday I received a patronising message, from my (now ex) mate in Canberra, telling how much he admires NZ cricket & that they are more likeable than 'his' team.

Yes, indeed. And all of our home series this summer were two tests each. Sadly, everyone wants to play 20/20s these days for the party crowd. I really think series should be at least three tests.If I remember correctly the most recent England's series in NZ was for only two tests?!
