England - 2nd Test in Christchurch
 
England, most likely, will win the 2nd Test in Christchurch -
why - because Christchurch is New Zealand’s most English city

The English players like the cold, cloudy conditions ideal for swinging and of course, the local crowd support at the Hagley Oval.

As long as they score more than 58 when they bat in the first innings I'll be happy!

England has reduced NZ to 50 for 5 - told you about the vicious swing attainable in Christchurch.

Looking good to end their poor tourist form.

NZ still has work to do to avoid the follow-on

England has batted woeful NZ OUT of this match. A series leveller on the cards with the match most likely to be over by lunch. Hagley Oval always a happy hunting ground...

I hope so.

Still 10 wickets to be claimed though and it's not beyond NZ to bat out the day.

We need wickets fast in the morning session.

Two wickets in the first two balls!

Bowlers are currently having a chuckle at the pathetic kiwi batsmen.

Stuart Broad will be the man of the match.

England's inability to take 10 wickets has been an achilles heel over the years.

Credit to New Zealand who held their nerve very well after the first two balls.

England cricket seem to be on a dip at the moment and starting to remind me of the 1990's.

Well done Black Caps, both sides ensured that cricket was a winner as well
