    You have to feel bad for Root. He's been outstanding for the best part of a year, but the rest of the team lets him down so often.

    Absolutely. He's got a partnership going with Stokes in this innings at least though, a 50 for him as well. Great innings from him too so far.

    That's good to see. Stokes has really good potential as an all rounder, he just needs to be consistent (and sort himself out off the field). Hopefully this partnership lasts until the close of play.

    Definitely, Stokes is playing really well today. Both players, but Stokes especially have been scoring runs at a good rate, would be great if they both can continue batting.

    Shame that Stokes didn't get his hundred, still, a good innings for him though.

    Doesn't surprise me that the player from Sheffield has to save the day

    I do really like Ben Stokes as well, got the potential to be a quality player

    Buttler out with the last ball of the day. :( Still, a really good innings considering England were 30-4. Opinions on the first day?

    Really need to sort out the top 3 tbh

    Excellent comeback from England after that horror start, Root and Stokes unlucky to miss out on deserved hundreds. Test looks evenly poised now.

    That's a shame, Mark Wood almost had his first wicket, but it was overturned for a no ball. :(

    Gutted for him. As Botham said though at least it teaches him an early lesson, would much rather that happen against NZ than against Australia

    Yeah, it was a fair point. Hopefully he can still get a wicket or two.

    @Handy Andy Who got the other wicket for England? Broad and who?

    Edit: Never mind, just seen the New Zealand scorecard. :)
