Left: This one is from
Dunedin. New Zealand are batting early on
the 3rd day (2nd day if you exclude the rained out day). Jimmy Anderson
is bowling and Peter Fulton is the non-striker.
Top Right: From the next day in Dunedin. Brendon McCullum is batting and aiming for quick runs and a declaration. Looks like he's about to wear the cricket ball on his thigh as a result.
Right: From later the same day. New Zealand are now fielding, England are batting. Not many scoring shots were being played, but plenty of deliveries were being left alone to go through to the keeper, BJ Watling.
|Top Left: Still
Saturday, and this is Alastair Cook blocking the ball. We saw plenty of
this on the 4th and 5th days.
Top Right: New Zealand bowler Neil Wagner on the boundary between deliveries. I'm pretty sure he's trying to sign a few autographs for the kids, but also keeping an eye on the game at the same time. This was still in Dunedin.
Left: Down to the Saturday at the Basin Reserve, Wellington. This shows Monty Panesar's bowling action. The non-striker is BJ Watling, I think
Bottom Left: The England slips corden in the Basin Reserve Test. Three slips and a gully - a fairly attacking field which was fair enough given England were well on top at the time. In the background you can see a fairly busy crowd and the display of England football flags demonstrates just how many England fans had made the trip.
Bottom Right: The grass bank at the Basin Reserve. Absolutely packed, as it always is for England Test matches at the very least. Still, definitely the best seats in the house at the Basin.
