I believe we’ve still only had one 6 in the match.


You don’t get them on a pitch like this

I fear that could be it...rate now climbing too high on this sticky wicket.

The England extras could prove costly also

Sounds like we could do with Johnny Wilkinson.

Always tough against The All Blacks.

If Stokes stays we win.

If he gets out we lose.

Difficult to come in and hit the ball as required. It will have to be Stokes I think if we do it.

All on Stokes.

NZ will do everything to keep him off strike

Stokes was left stranded in a previous loss.

Have England learnt the lesson?

I'm a bit confused why Buttler and Stokes didn't give it the "long handle" from over 10 onwards. The rate was already getting difficult at that stage. It was reaching "sh*t or bust time."

Not sure if they've bottled it, or it's been bad captaincy

I’m confused to why our best bowler only bowled 9 overs

To many dot balls and extras conceded...

Butler needed to stay and stokes hit out he didnt and he hasn't

I don’t think you have a clue how hard it is to hit sixes on a pitch like this against the best bowling you are likely to face
