Just use our players average ( apprx 25) and a strike rate of 50%, you can calculate how long the match is going to last.. which is about a day. NZ batting for day and a half and in the 2nd innings we do our best,, there.. you have a 4 day match already. NZ will be doing some batting practice before their England party..The question is,, can the players atleast perform to their average with a less strike rate. The good thing is,, Jamie is going to try and so will the new players to change their fortune,, who knows, we might be surprised to find that we are still playing the 4th day tea, its possible. Who wouldve beleived beforehand that we were in a position to win against Australia/Pakistan? Tigers are their best when they are cornered... I personally feel, we are at that position in the tour.
