    England v New Zealand Test Series

    England all out for 58 after only 20.4 overs. Brilliant bowling from Boulton and Southee but an utter shambles of a batting performance.

    Interesting comments by Matt Prior, who played at Sabina Park in 2009, when the Windies skittled England for 51 all out.

    He talks about setting small goals in the aftermath of such a debacle, each partnership aiming to get to ten runs as a starting point, and only then aim for the next ten and so on.

    It sounds very similar to the approach taken by the Australians prior to the Ashes, where they had been suffering collapses with all too frequent regularity. Building small and incremental achievements as a foundation. At the time they were prone to such collapses that the goals for the partnerships were ten minutes at the crease and then ten runs, IIRC.
    There's only one thing better than a Hibs calendar and that's two Hibs calendars

    Day 3 about to start. Surely New Zealand have to declare. The forecast is dreadful, bowl England out and win the game. A draw would be a travesty in this game.

    Poor decision by New Zealand this for me. Itís cloudy, the ball will nip around. Put England in to bat.
