Well this is an exhibition in when not to review, both fielding reviews were pretty blatantly pitching outside leg and Munros batting review was as out as I've seen.

Good win for NZ .

We lack wicket taking bowlers but this isn’t news.

Obviously Plunkett would be in if fit, but do you think there are any wicket taking bowlers not being picked?

In Ross Taylor and Kane Williamson, New Zealand have arguably their best ever batting pair. Often, there have been decent batsmen in an NZ line up, but never two of this quality.

All they way from Dempster - Donnelly - Sutcliffe - Congdon - Turner - Crowe - Fleming - Taylor/Williamson.

Shame they won't play that many more Tests together. I hope Taylor will be fit for this series too.

Looks like the middle order cost us the game, plus a brilliant innings from Taylor obviously.

All Root's fault for scoring too slowly and putting too much pressure on the middle order!!

Think toss also key again, although no doubt we could've put it to bed had we made 380 as looked likely at one stage.

Fair play to Taylor, great innings, but will he be fit for the decider. Kiwis know they need to win the toss to be competitive.

Congratulations to Root who passed KP in the run scoring charts with a much better average, a better strike rate and in about 20 fewer matches. Impressive from young joe.

Ah well at least we know who to blame now rather than arguing over Root/Morgan/Bowlers/Middle Order or the toss!

Keep believing that all you like. This match wasn't played under floodlights or in the dew and NZ didn't take any wickets with the new ball. England lost this match due to the first innings collapse and dropping a couple of dollies. Nothing to do with the toss whatsoever.

Seems odd to lose when we were 267 for 1 batting first.

That is all true, but matches on these kind of pitches always favour the team batting 2nd with the target to aim at. Can NZ win batting first? Their one effort so far would suggest unlikely.

We couldn’t take enough wickets - too much praise heaped on middle over bowling because it’s “economical”.

Economical without taking wickets = “easily milked”

It looks to me that the main problem was our batting collapse.

Batting collapses are always a problem, far worse than being milked in the middle overs.

Well said Daniel. Some people read too much into the toss and who wins it.
The game isn't always determined at the toss of the coin, otherwise we wouldn't bother playing the bloody game, we would just flip a coin and decide the winner there and then, like two-up !

Anyway look what happened to the Poms during the recent Ashes tour. We let them win the toss heaps of times and they still got flogged ! lol
