3rd test - England vs New Zealand

Discussion in 'All Other Sports' started by St Helens RLFC, Jun 10, 2004.

  1. The series is over, but there's much to play for in this third test.

    Another poor opening spell by England has seen the Kiwis race away to 66-0 as I write this, though there has been some good batting.

    England's poor starts have allowed the Kiwis to keep themselves in this series. Some wickets are needed, urgently.

    Harmison bowled v. well this morning with no reward. Fleming and Richardson batted very well.

    NZ currently at 258-2, Styris and Astle batting (well).

    Harmison has just tipped the match upside down. He's taken 2 in 2 and is looking for more.

    277-4

    Two more wickets this evening and England are in position a.

    Pity Harmison missed out on the hat trick.

    Day one to the Kiwis...............

    Especially on good batting pitch and with an even better batting lineup then the previous two tests.

    After a good start will we allow the Poms to take over the test for a third time in a row????

    NZ have has the upper hand on the first day for the last two tests. In the second test they were in pole position right until Sunday when England made it past thier score and upto 500. then within 2 sessions England had won.
     
  10. England need early wickets or this match will be a draw.

    Be interesting to see if the pair can survive until lunch and give England a chance of taking a first innings lead.
