Henry Blofeld - Legend

Recommended Posts

Great to hear Henry Blofeld giving a big shout out to all the Norwich City fans on their way to Man City on Test Match Special a little while back.

And England walloped New Zealand.

Pietersen leaves big boots to fill, but Root looks a good find in the attacking mould.  Bairstow doesn''t impress me much either.  Quite happy with Compton, Cook, Trott, Root, Bell and Prior at 7 though so I don''t think our batting line-up is awful.  We do need to find a dependable no 5.Broad bowled beautifully this morning as did Anderson.  I thought it would be a tight one with NZ getting around 200, but didn''t expect the collapse to be quite so marked.
