    Englandís top order batsmen are perhaps the most mentally strong top order, always positive intent from Roy and Bairstow.

    Henry is proving to be a big match player.

    This is one more reason why a bowler needs to have the ability to move the ball around.

    Well Southee is a good talent too. Henry has always been a decent performer But He has just lifted his game to another level in last 2 matches. He looks a bigger threat than even boult.

    Yes but quick changes in bowling forces batsmen to do odd things. The swing is already starting to diminish, maybe bring in Lockie with ab it more pace or surprise them with Santner. Especially as Root can take a while to get going.

    henry missed too many games he should have played cuz of southee.

    however, southee has much more variation which is needed in odis. southees variation is what put nery out of the nz team in all formats, henry usually just gets a few tests

    so glad that nz stuck with henry, despite a few bad matches where henry was smashed(like against windies)
    have to feel for southee though, he also deserves to be in the team

    CdG is rightly called a Chacha. What was that.

    See the new guys post on one of the treads he made to figure it out why he made new account.

    I am not supporting anyone.. Both teams deserve to win, England for being so good in last 3-4 years. And New Zealand I always have soft corner since I share birthday with Nathan astle and as a kid he was one my favourite players because he shares birthday with me (that's how kids work)..

    So whoever wins I will be happy.
