Default An Exciting Test Match (Ladies Excused)

It may seem like a contradiction in terms but the current Test Match between England and New Zealand is bubbling up into a "must see" finish for those of the leather on willow persuasion. Having skittled the Black Caps out for 114 after a poor first innings showing, England need 294 for victory, the largest winning total by far ever successfully chased at Old Trafford. They are currently 177-2 with almost two whole sessions left and no drops of rain...yet
