This is turning into a very good game - England got them 16-3 at the moment with all three wickets to Stuart Broad.

I just hope we can get it finished before this afternoon's kick off.

I felt that New Zealand were slight favorites at the start of this innings but Broad has bowled very well and has put England in control. This game has swayed from side to side would love us to get another one before lunch.

26-6 at lunch, and a Michelle for Broadie! Should be over in time for the Albion game and a bit of dinner before hand too. Happy days.

Amazing bowling from Broad I'm not always convinced by him but runs and five wickets today and he is now closing in on 200 Test wickets.

7 for 44 for Broad and a win in a canter. Now I can concentrate on the footie.

What a performance from England. Broad was exceptional today bowled extremely well. Anderson also bowled very well too, and in the first innings Finn bowled very well too.  Root and Trott batted well Yesterday and Broad added some very important runs at the time. Looking forward to the next test now on Friday New Zealand do have some decent players Tim Southee bowled very well.

Second and final test starts tomorrow:

Expecting England to remain an unchanged side. The only debatable call is whether you go with Tim Bresnan over Steven Finn. Joe Root is playing at his home ground.

For New Zealand. BJ Watling and Bruce Martin are out with injury so as expected, Martin Guptill and Daniel Vettori will return to the side with Brendon McCullum behind the stumps.

Just 48 days to go now until the Ashes, although still one test and small ODI series and the Champions Trophy before all of that. I dont think we will make any change as all of the seamers picked up wickets. I really hope Root and Bairstow can perform well and I think Compton needs to make a score in this Test match. I expect us to win 2-0, simply down to our bowling attack been considerably better than there's.

Great to see that we have finally have some play, and the weather looks good for the whole of the day. However Compton only making one today, playing at a wide ball. Despite those two centuries that he made, I'm not to convinced by him yet. Really hope Cook and Trott can go on a make a big partnership.

England enter lunch at 67-3. Two wickets in the over prior to Lunch.

Joe Root given a standing ovation on the way to the crease - England need a big innings from him.

Today is made for both Root and Bairstow.

A good partnership ended by Williamson as Root and Bell were looking good. Root on 43 not out now really looking the part and looking like he belongs in test Cricket. Really hope Bairstow makes some runs.

If Joe Root is going to make his first test century then it would be fitting that it happens at Headingley.

England going very well at the minute, Bairstow is looking good too. I really hope Root can make his maiden century and Bairstow can make a big score too.

And Joe Root scores his maiden test century in-front of his home faithful.

Superb innings. A young man showing great maturity.

We had our first one day international against New Zealand yesterday and lost by five wickets. Incredibly disappointing performance with the bat, we were at least 40-60 runs short of a competitive total and New Zealand cruised to the finish line. Positives were that James Anderson, Graeme Swann and Tim Bresnan bowled very well giving the small total they were defending.

The second ODI is on Sunday.

I was very happy with the way we played in the second Test Match. We really have a great bowling unit as Anderson and Broad got a lot of wickets at Lords and then Swann gets ten wickets at Leeds. It was Disappointing that we lost the first ODI I felt we need another 50 odd runs, and Dernbach and Woakes do need to improve.

Not a great performance yesterday, Trott batted very well and the the other batsmen got starts again but failed to kick on. Hopefully we can win the final ODI on Wedensday at Trent Bridge.

I really hope we beat the Aussies today. Having no Clarke for Australia is a big blow for them and for them been bowled out for 65 may have some advantage towards us. I thought that we played really well the other night Buttler and Morgan looked really good, Bell has found some form. Tredwell bowled really well. The wicket at Edgbaston is very dry today so I would like to see both Swann and Tredwell in the side today.

Really can't wait for the Ashes - the Aussies were awful.

If this is what the summer is going to be like then bring it on. The Australian batting line up lacks any type of leadership, direction and authority without Michael Clarke.

Bell batted really well again yesterday. With the bowlers that we have i really think we have a great chance of winning the ICC. My only concern is the top three are very sedate, Jos Buttler who has only had one really decent innings for us so far, still is unproven. Also Morgan didn't make that many runs Yesterday either.   

The Aussies batting doesnt look that good. They bowled ok Yesterday. Test Match Cricket is very different to ODI but from what I have seen of the Aussies they don't possess any fear.
