The thing is, they just know to dangle wide ones at all the kids and they'll chase them like a lab chases its tail.

Awful batting. Crawley, Pope and Bracey just terrible performances.

No, probably the worst I can remember in truth, and that's a loooong time. And its far from NZ's strongest attack.

Bracey has been a pretty bad pick so far....Buttler played for Lancs yesterday! Golden duck today, duck at Lords, and a pretty average keeping display- I know he's 4th (?) choice, but...

We'll be lucky to get 250 at this rate. And then they'll punish us for 350+, probably...whereby Sibley will ride in on his white horse and block a nice 50 off 300 balls to "save" the series.

we have a distinct lack of quality batsman full stop, and missing Stokes, Bairstow and Buttler doesn't help, esp when Root's form is so shaky.

Good effort from Burns, Lawrence, Stone and Wood. Well done to NZ.

But most of all, great to have a crowd....and they loved it too. Gotta love the outfits....coronavirus being chased by Boris with a syringe was a highlight.

258-7 is a result given some of the positions we found ourselves in. You'd've said that, if we can get 300+, that's a score that it's possible to win with if we bowl decently.

Lots of ifs there, pooj...

I’m sure we’ll take 5 wickets with an old man, Bruce banner (before he turns into the hulk), a man with an invisible horse who “doesn’t drink”, an unproven kid, and captain fantastic and his dodgy back.

Overcast tomorrow, so would expect a similar mixed bag from NZ.
meanwhile..'Ollie Robinson is taking indefinite leave from cricket and will not be representing Sussex until further notice..'
quel surpris: what a sickener for the guy - what a mess; who's next up ?
Needs to be a push-back somehow.

Either a pushback and admit they got it wrong in banning Robinson, or consistency in banning others like Anderson too

Yeah posted that earlier- they’ve certainly messed him up. Seems it’s more about appearances than any genuine intervention.

NZ batsmen showing the sort of fortitude beyond our fellas at the mo. Though Broad and Anderson put great spells in....the back up is nowhere near as good, or good enough tbh.

This could get ugly.

Well that was a handy wicket to get right at the end of play. Lawrence having a decent match. Wood and Stone have looked pretty average and we're missing a front line spin option.

NZ just look a cut above with bat and ball, showing far greater control, discipline and patience.

Stone looked to lose a bit of confidence after the captain showed his wankhands at slip to deny him a wicket.

So apart from the dodgy batting lineup, dodgy keeper, insufficient seam attack, no spinner and dropping catches we're looking pretty well set

Still shouldnt be dropping catches

annoying last wicket stand, then predictably lose a wicket immediately.

There simply isn't a more fragile batting team in test cricket at the moment and it doesn't seem to matter who we select.

I'm struggling to remember a time when I didn't expect England to collapse every time they play a game.
