Owais Shah is dismissed for needless yogaA top score of 31 and a third of the team getting run out? A fielding side that dives around after everything like it’s tanked-up on E numbers? It’s under-11s cricket, isn’t it?

There was a disappointingly small number of wides and the match wasn’t decided by the one kid who can actually play cricket, but essentially England and New Zealand played like a bunch of ten-year-olds. New Zealand did it in a good way. England did it in a bad way.

No after-match Monster Munch for you, England. None whatsoever.

New Zealand v England, first one-day international at Wellington
England 130 all out
New Zealand 131-4 (Stuart Broad 3-26)


Mike Gatting wasn't receiving the King Cricket email when he dropped that ludicrously easy chance against India in 1993.


Why risk it when it's so easy to sign up?

    I know I’d be in a real bad mood, and up for it in the next game, if my mum took my post match monster munch!

    Post match monster munch, and rola cola.

    All a professional cricketer needs to inspire them.
