Win the toss and lose five wickets before lunch. There's no way to take any positive from that

Never seen the like.
Medium pacer just hit middle stump, at decent pace, and the bails stayed on.
Weird.

New Zealand's 4-11 in the order amassing 5 runs is quite the fucking achievement :roll:

The series win masks the obvious weaknesses in the England batting. Windies next who are just about as good as Sri Lanka
