I'd expect NZ to have enough to beat England, unless Anderson starts swinging it around corners and Root drags their batsmen to respectable scores.

Should be a good warm up for England before they're battered by the Aussies in the Summer.

Poor start from England yesterday but they recovered well.

That's just a side show though because today...CRICKET RETURNS TO PAKISTAN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Outstanding finish to the 2nd t20i! Lahore is loving it. Atmosphere is unreal, wish I could have been there.

England 295 in front going into the final day. Surely you go all out for 10 overs to score a quick 50 runs then declare?

Knowing Cook they'll bat all morning.

Some comeback from England to win that test match,Stokes 100 in the second innings that probably swung it in England's favour.

I was berating Cook for not declaring earlier and for going for the 'safe' option, but he proved me wrong. Fair play.

Pak v Zim 1st ODI today.

I have been busy with the new job, so didn't get a chance to see too much of the England v New Zealand Test. Just caught up on the highlights and I am well impressed with the dig and fight shown by Cook & Co..Some good performances and a decent foundation to build on. Just got to hope it doesn't all go pear shaped in the next Test. Looking ahead to the Ashes they will have to find another 50% to give the Aussies a decent game. Should be a right good Summer for Test Cricket..

Tea on Day 1 of WI v AUS.

Windies win the toss and elect to bat, 148 all out. Australia still have around 35 overs probably, will be within 50 runs by close!

Typical Warner there, although on this occasion the bowler had a big say in taking the wicket. But Warner will go for the shot more than not.

Guarantee next game Eng bowled out for under 180.

Still can't believe they got 400. I've always rated Rashid, good wee player.

Not a fan of one day cricket but I really enjoyed the England New Zealand series.

Can see Rashid getting a call up to the Ashes squad thought he was probably the pick of the England bowlers and looks handy with the bat as well.

That was a brilliant series and Adil Rashid showed he is good enough to play for England.

Pakistan just beat Sri Lanka in a test match in Sri Lanka for the first time since 2006.

Yasir Shah is superb. Establishing himself as the best leg spinner in the world.

It was an incredible comeback considering we were 93-5 in the first innings after SL had posted 300.

It was an excellent 1 Day Series v New Zealand and it really wets the appetite for the forthcoming Ashes..and the 1 Day and 20/20 Matches..

The team must have been getting really good odds to score under 140 runs perhaps???..

Been watching bucket loads of cricket recently.

Rashid should play ahead of Ali in the first test. Moeen is the better batsman but Rashid is significantly better with the ball. Neither are frontline spinners though.

All the pre-Ashes talk is about seamers, but Nathan Lyon will win Australia this series, IMO.

I am certainly looking forward to a fantastic Ashes Series. My money is on Jimmy Jimmy Jimmy Jimmy having a big say with his SWING..(dependent on the weather of course)..But certainly agree that England are lacking a frontline spinner...Is "the cat" Tuffnell still chucking the odd ball??
