New Zealand coach Mike Hesson praised the development of Colin Munro‘s bowling after his key incision to remove Joe Root with a knuckle ball in the opening match. Between him and Colin de Grandhomme, they got through 10 overs for the very limited damage of 51 runs. With the bat, it was a less auspicious start to the series for Munro – one huge six followed by one huge slog which he edged behind. Munro has license to thrill – the Brendon McCullum role – but there remains a line to judge when it becomes reckless. Still, the signs are he’s only going to play one way: in his last 10 ODI innings he has only gone at a strike-rate of under 100 once, and that was a duck.
Players respond to breaks differently. Jonny Bairstow was scratchy with the bat, Moeen Ali didn’t quite settle with the ball, but Joe Root just picked up his serene form from Australia where he was Man of the Series in the ODIs. Some of his deft touches on a slow surface were a delight as he anchored England’s innings with a knock the conditions demanded. His one mistake brought his downfall and it had to go down as another century chance missed. But he has found superb consistency in his one-day cricket – he has the fifth-highest average of those to have played 100 or more matches – and surely three-figures will be hit before long.
