Much better. Should be able to defend this total.

Scotland Innings

Total(20.0 overs)198-for6wickets

Won by 90 runs in the end. Huge improvement required unless we want to get scudded every game next year Down Under.

James Vince ensured England began their winter tour of New Zealand on a high with a seven-wicket victory in the first Twenty20 in Christchurch.

Vince struck a fine 59 off 38 balls as England reached a target of 154 with nine balls to spare in Chris Silverwood's first game as head coach.

Delighted for my Hampshire captain.

Pak pumped by the Aussies in the t20 series, as was expected tbh. Lots of young players in the team and going through a transition with the captaincy moving. 

Couple of tour matches then the 1st test starting on the 21st at Brisbane. Not holding out much hope for this. Historically always been pretty hopeless on the bouncy wickets

Great news but remains to be seen whether the top Sri Lankans travel or not. Pakistan is safe to play cricket in, but players are being threatened by India that if they travel to play in Pakistan they run the risk of not being selected in the IPL.  It's a more political argument now sadly

@psb07158 Hoping this boy performs well for you guys. 

Sixteen-year-old pace bowler Naseem Shah will make his Pakistan debut in the opening Test against Australia in Brisbane this week.

Naseem, who has played only seven first-class matches, has taken 27 wickets at an average of 16.66.

"This is going to be a really tough series and I need to showcase my skills - but I am not feeling any pressure," Naseem told BBC Urdu.

The two-Test series starts at 00:00 GMT on Thursday at the Gabba.

Naseem's mother died during Pakistan's tour game against Australia A this month.

He missed the second day of the three-day match but bowled brilliantly to take 1-21 in the second innings, including removing Test opener Marcus Harris.

At 16 years and 279 days, Naseem will become the ninth youngest Test debutant. Pakistan's Hasan Raza, who made his debut in 1996 aged 14 years and 227 days, is the youngest.

"Not many players can reach that standard so early, but there are exceptions and he's one of them," said captain Azhar Ali.

"We are all looking forward to him having a very successful career."

Australia captain Tim Paine said: "He looks a really exciting talent. Pakistan have got a knack of finding these young fast bowlers.

"He looks like another one that's going to add to that rich history."

Pakistan, who have never won a Test series in Australia and have no Test victories there since 1995, also have two 19-year-old bowlers - Shaheen Afridi and Musa Khan - in their squad.

The second Test is a day-night match in Adelaide, starting on 29 November.

Australia beat Pakistan 3-0 in the Twenty20 series that preceded the Tests.

We have him, Mohamed Husnain, Shaheen Afridi and Musa Khan who are all under 20 who can bowl 90+mph and generate some swing. There’s a little bit of concern that they’re inexperienced and in Aus you have to bowl spells where 6 balls are right on the money and these guys don’t have that control yet but it will be phenomenal experience 

Excited for the tests, think we will lose we just don’t have sufficient batting depth for this level but hoping for a good contest

It doesnt seem to be a fast scoring wicket, which I suppose brings the draw into play. We are going into day 4 still on the first innings.

But NZ are back in control.

It's been a pretty woeful excuse of a test match tbh. 

So negative and dull.

Aussies have made easy scoring.

Pakistan will do well to avoid an inning defeat.

An absolute pumping on the cards thanks to the batsmen in the shite 1st innings

16-year old sending them in above 90mph. That boy is going to have serious pace :lol: 

The one silver lining is this boy. He is going to be a superstar and get even quicker as he grows

Questions have got to be asked how England can be sitting in very good position at close on day 1, with healthy score on the board and.... go on to lose heavily by an innings to a New Zealand side that - Watling aside - played well with a tidy and disciplined game, but nothing extraordinary.

A lot good on day 1 for England, but turned a winning position into a very heavy defeat. Seriously after day 1, you'd be getting 25/1+ on New Zealand winning by an innings!
