plus only one other in double figures, weird looking scorecard but it is the Bangers :shock:

In 145 years history of Test cricket, today it is first time that an innings has seen 6 Ducks and 2 Centuries.

Good bit of trivia that one Locky, I was wondering what is the highest score in test cricket when team has had that many ducks in an innings and sure enough Cricinfo provided the answer. Bangladesh's 365 is the highest first class score where 6 or more players have made ducks. The previous highest was 300 made by Sussex against Derbyshire in 2001.

6 ducks is the joint most in test cricket and there has been 5 previous occasions of 6 ducks in an innings.

It's also the first time a team has scored 300 after losing their first five wickets for less than 25.

I've always believed the darker the cherry the more it will do

The poms have a duke that is more maroon/brown than red

and its hooping

It's noticeable when there's a wide shot from the Pavilion end on TV and it's very noticeable in person when I did the tour there in 2019. The slope runs from North West to South East with a drop of 2.5 metres from one side of the ground to the other.

Great start for England, Anderson and Broad on the money straight away and Potts couldn't of ask for a better start to his career getting Williamson as his first test wicket.

Interesting that Boult is playing, all the news was that he wouldn't play in the first test.

Eye balled the slope back in 2013. From one side of the pavilion (left of screen) to the other side would be a minimum 700mm. But that's not the full width of the ground.

NZ now 6/37!
Potts 3/6 from 7 overs with 4 maidens
Jimmy 2/5 from 8 overs with 6 maidens

After 23 overs the whole ground gave a 23 second round of applause for Warnie.

Typical of England lol, outstanding with the ball (and in the field) to really set the game up and the batsmen couldn't back it up. NZ back in it now!
