AFAIK Hawkeye requires a coordinated bank of high precision cameras.

It does - what we don't know is whether this bank was actually working, but then the "van" that takes all the signals and processes them was down - it is entirely possible that the cameras were on, recording footage that could be obtained later on and processed.  The bbc website has been very vague with what exactly is down.

Would we have won the 2005 Ashes under Butcher as captain instead of Vaughan? He was my choice when Hussain stepped down, and it was a pity injuries robbed him of his career.

I've no idea, I just mean when he talks in the aftermath of his cricket career. He's got Talksport brain.

TMS is on the lag, I read about the wicket going before they'd even changed the ball on the radio.

No. Vaughan was a brilliant captain (as well as a superb batter). He led that team superbly.

This is some absolutely wonderful swing bowling - not many batting lineups could deal with boult and southee on this sort of form - although maybe they wouldn't be 4 down, they would still have been 2/3 down

I like the new mindset in theory, but surely there's room for a bit of nuance? Stokes was basically swinging himself off his feet trying to hit everything for six, which was never going to be sustainable.

I've never been a big fan of the shorter format of the game, I've laways preferred test cricket. But I can't see how this style or mindset is going to be sustainable. Yes we'll get some fun wins like Trent Bridge but you can't go out expecting that to happen every time.

I love the shorter format of the game, hence I love watching England play Test cricket. None of this block-block-block. All over in 90 minutes, just as it should be.

there is a difference though between Stokes' approach, which was essentially "try to hit a 6 every single ball" which resulted in swings and misses, and then a dolly spooned up; and what Bairstow is doing, which is aggressive, but treaitng each ball on its merits, and look for boundaries where a ball is there to be hit as it puts the bowler off their rhythm

Yeah definitely. It's also worth noting that most of the top order were out trying to play defensive blocks but were done by some great bowling.

Stokes' attitude attitude in every innings is to come out flashing away whatever the circumstance.

Four Test centuries this year for Bairstow and each time he's come in with 4 wickets down and less than 50 on the board.

Would it be fair to say that in these last two England innings the middle order batsman have almost bullied the New Zealand bowler's out of their stride? I mean this a really strong attack with good bowler's.

Highest ever 7th wicket stand for England.

Also one of those things itís easy to underplay - like when Bairstow almost beat the fastest century record. England have been playing test cricket for centuries. Itís insane to break recordsÖ
