England had a much better
England had a much better second day here in Auckland. This was mainly due to the fact that they did not have to bat and they had to bowl http://www.authenticislanderstore.com/-16-pat-lafontaine-jersey_c-491.html only 23.1 overs, during which time they dismissed New Zealand’s best batsman, Kane Williamson. However, there are still some scars that need urgent attention.

Their batsmen have had plenty of time to contemplate how they might atone for their pitiful display on the first day. Nothing those batsmen witnessed on Friday when showers enveloped Eden Park all too frequently would have brought them much cheer. First, there was confirmation that the surface here possesses no demons. It is not a 58 all out pitch. It is not a 258 all out pitch.

For almost all of the 23 overs bowled the ball stubbornly refused to deviate in the air or off the pitch. The ball plopped gently on to the middle of straight Kiwi bats. The tourists’ pace bowling quartet was persistent but not penetrating as Williamson gave the England batsmen in the field a first-hand, five-hour tutorial on how to compile a Test century. Williamson made his 18th, which meant that the New Zealand captain has reached three figures more frequently than any other Kiwi. He had begun the match alongside Ross Taylor and Martin Crowe on this list.
Williamson displayed all the virtues that had eluded England in Phil Esposito Youth jersey the first hour of the match. He was patient and watchful; his footwork was precise and positive; he played the ball late in defence and punched drives to the boundary with surprising power when the opportunity arose. It helped him that no bowler could move http://www.authenticsanjosesharksshop.com/authentic-mikkel-boedker-jersey the ball in the air like Trent Boult.
It was, therefore, a Authentic Paul George Jersey surprise when Williamson was dismissed. Even the new ball had refused to deviate much until Jimmy Anderson found some surprising inswing to have him lbw for 102. Williamson described this as a “fairly good delivery”, which, given his dry, wry assessment of everything that happens around him, meant that it was an excellent ball and a fine piece of bowling by Anderson. Williamson was not going to lose any sleep over that dismissal or about New Zealand’s position in the match.
The departure of New Zealand’s best batsmen did not trigger any panic in their dressing room. Henry Nicholls had been resolute in defence throughout while playing the odd pull and cut shot on the rare occasions that the bowlers pitched short, while BJ Watling had skittishly acquired 17 on his return to Tests when more rain fell.
There was an inspection at 8.30pm after which the umpires decided http://www.officialtampabaylightning.com/Adidas-Brayden-Point-Jersey to look again at 9pm, seldom a popular decision and one that was met with Alexander Edler Jersey some derision from a dwindling crowd. The umpires finally abandoned play for the day at 9.10pm because they had decided that the outfield was still a bit damp and the game looked stupid once more. New Zealand were leading by 171 runs with six wickets remaining. cheap nfl jerseys cheap jerseys wholesale jerseys wholesale jerseys cheap jerseys from china wholesale nfl jerseys from china
