Captain's Opinions

“It's becoming more and more difficult to go into other conditions, but what was so disappointing in Auckland was that it wasn't dissimilar to playing in England. As a batting group, it wasn't good enough because we've had plenty of experience in those conditions. We're trying to change the way we go about things to find the best way for us to get to 400 and take 20 wickets.”
Joe Root

“Think it's a fairly even playing field. If we look back to the last game, it was nice to come out on the right side, but we know this English team was very well-balanced and talented side. They certainly showed that in the second half of the last game. Coming into tomorrow, I'm sure it will be a close game.”
