Gossip from day one of New Zealand v England
Are you a cricket writer working for a national newspaper? Are you struggling to find something to write after day one of the first Test between New Zealand and England was washed out?
Have no fear, after spending almost a full minute looking at photos on Cricinfo, we can exclusively bring you all the gossip.
- Kevin Pietersen was spotted travelling on the most selfish form of transport in the world, spurring rumours of further ructions in the England camp.
- Brendon McCullum was seen spending time with his family. The existence of an actual family raises serious questions as to whether McCullum feels that the New Zealand cricket team are ‘like family’ – something all captains are obliged to think. This revelation is even more damning when you consider that the New Zealand cricket team frequently features his brother.
- There was a rare sighting of reserve umpire Chris Gaffaney. Everybody was thrilled.
Finally, in related news, this happened.

You should almost certainly splash out on On Warne by Gideon Haigh
There are some things for which a double hundred is no substitute.
He certainly knows how to wield the willow.
Is this my coat?
Through silly point. No more than a gentle push, really and Pujara takes a quick one.
4/64 on day two, looks like their South African is bowling better than your South Africans can bat…
You can’t take 64 wickets in one innings.
Dare we hope that this test match can do to Broad’s career what the last First Test in New Zealand did to Hoggard’s? Might be a bit harsh, given he hasn’t bowled yet, but it’s only a matter of (not very much) time. Clutching at straws? Anyway, I look foward to McCullum and Taylor putting on 200 in a total of 400 plus and an innings defeat in 3 days.
This is a miserably pathetic performance. A fucking shambles.
As a NZ support, i still expect NZ to lose this test.
More gossip for you, NZ journalism strikes again.
Not at Nandos tho’.
