    I’m no great fan of cricket, but it was great sport.

    Do have to feel for NZ after that final regular over.To draw after 50 overs, and then again after another over, and lose out, is a little harsh. But I guess it’s the same argument with penalty shoot outs in football.

    Aye they drew the extra over too.
    Only lost out on the number of boundaries scored today.

    Well done both teams 👍

    Amazing. I was listening while driving back from the Lakes. I had to feel for NZ when England got the 4 overthrows in the final over. Without that I think NZ would have won it, but then there were lots of moments like that. The kids kept asking "who's winning" and my answer was changing each time. Well done to England.

    Driving back from North Yorks on a miserable M1 but was kept entertained by having to flick between 5Live and 5LiveExtra as both the tennis and cricket went into sudden death. Sometimes sport can transcend the extraordinary!

    Ha ha, I saw that as well this morning. They're having to take a lot on the chin at the moment.

    I was really impressed with the sportsmanship of the New Zealand cricket team. It's fair to say they didn't exactly get the rub of the green on Sunday. But there's been no bitching or moaning from them. True class.

    Why can't we have a little consistency with our cricket team?
    42-5 England in a 4 day test again Ireland.
    Ashes summer too!
