    After the match each day, and at lunch today, Sky have been showing the ill-fated Indian tour of 1993 as filmed on Dermot Reeve's camera: Spinwash.

    Eighteen hour train journeys, fuelled by corned beef naans, and then out on the field the next day.

    Well worth a watch.

    The England and Wales Cricket Board is looking into claims a second England player posted “historic offensive material”, just a day after the governing body suspended England and Sussex bowler Ollie Robinson for past racist and sexist tweets.
    Wisden.com has unearthed a tweet, publishing its content but concealing the alleged England cricketer’s identity because he was under the age of 16 at the time.
    The ECB said in a statement: “It has been brought to our attention that an England player has posted historic offensive material on their social media account.
    “We are looking into it and will make a further comment in due course”.

    So apparently the umpires have to send run outs upstairs even when they are patently nowhere near.

    England score what looks like a sub-par total of 303, so they need Anderson and Broad to help them out of a bit of a hole.

    They've started bowling beautifully and the kiwis are 19-1.

    18,000 spectators at Edgbaston and, as happens fairly rarely, I'd like to be back in Birmingham.

    Mark Wood replaces Jimmy Anderson at the Birmingham End.

    Any idea what the song is that the fans are singing? Don't take me home, please don't take me home or something?

    Not a good performance.

    With Anderson and Broad nearing retirement there must be some worried people in the England camp.

    Seems that most teams struggle with finding decent opening batsmen that can consistently score runs.

    Australia also haven't had a decent opening duo for years. In fact I have no idea who they will be using next series.

    Having said that NZ have an extremely strong bowling attack and were expected to do well.

    It was in every aspect of the game except bowling that England were outclassed.

    Broad in particular was unlucky, but that second innings from England was just woeful.

    England even copied NZ in the fourth innings by changing the layout of their slip cordon.

    What do these dozens of coaches do, that they need to look at their opponents and copy them in the middle of a game?

    Hope Archer and Stokes are back soon, and why on earth Woakes was left out I'll never know.

    None of that will do much for the collapsible batting, though.

    Finished their 20 with 117.

    You'd like to think England can knock that off quickly enough.
