Thirteen a side, but Crane and Foakes are added on the end (Crane didn't bowl), so there looks to be a credible Test team there?, with maybe Stokes to come in for Livingstone. But that would mean Wood ahead of Woakes, TRJ and Overton... A couple of wicket for Broad is encouraging. Anderson was the lead bowler which seems to be predictable currently.

A strong NZA batting line up but a little concerning there was a 254 partnership once the new ball lost its shine. And both the batter retired!

If you look at the batting scorecard, Broad only took one wicket; it would appear that the vagary of computer generated scorecards credits a retired out to the bowler. Nevertheless I think he'll be in the 1st test, Wood won't play both tests.

Cook
Stoneman
Vince/Livingstone?
Root
Malan
Bairstow
Stokes
Ali
Woakes
Broad
Anderson

Yes, looks like Jimmy the Saint got an extra wicket too.

To compound the farce, Broad did actually get 2 wkts- Blundell who batted a 2nd time twice.
Umpire had to step in after the saint engaged in verbals with Blundell.

That scorecard is impossible to make sense of. Looks as if everyone's just treating it as a glorified net.

Pathetic.

It does. News sites don't really need to dignify it with a scorecard.

Not a particularly successful one either, although Livingstone hasn't done his chances of a call-up any harm, and Super Joe apparently has 50 not out (although it may be his second bat).

This doesn't bode particularly well for the first test.

Good workout for England - going with three seam bowlers to get overs under their belt, while Malan and Vince filled in the 5th bowling slot.

New Zealand fielded five seamers and a spinner, all of a good standard. Kyle Jamieson is one to look out for, similar to Liam Plunkett with both bat and ball. Kruggelin was wayward, but got a bit of pace about him and there is Seth Rance who recently became a Blackcap with his probing line and length bowling.

England's top order batting twice in this warm up is actually a good thing, getting a feel to both day and night conditions. Particularly the latter when the final session of each day in Auckland will be in twilight/darkness.

Liam Livingstone does not look ready for test cricket, his technique suspect by having a tendency to get hands and feet in a tangle off good bowling and struggles to play a straight line. The majority of his runs came from the 4th, 5th and 6th bowling options who are not of test quality. Should Livingstone play in the test series (I hope not), either Southee or Boult will get him nicking off'/pinned LBW or Wagner will just pepper him.
In Phil Parkinson we trust

"They took all our players away, banned our captain and we still came away with a ten-wicket victory"
