England vs New Zealand 2nd T20 Cricket Match Live
Luke Wright's assessment of the deluge of sixes that rained upon the Eden Park crowd during the opening Twenty20 international was enthusiastic enough, but with a hint of reservations. England had cleared the boundary 15 times, only two short of equalling the world record, and Wright contributing four of them in a domineering 42 from 20 balls. New Zealand managed eight - and their innings never really took off.

"To see fours and sixes, I suppose that's what people come to watch," Wright said. Rarely in cricket has the world "suppose" been worthy of such a debate. Spectators assuredly do not want stodgy pitches and massive outfields, big hitting is demanded above all, but it has to be a challenge, otherwise you might as well just double up the boundary with the 30-yard fielding circle. Wright, helped by a great batting surface, virtually blocked one of his sixes over the rope.

Eden Park, if you take proper note of its tiny straight boundaries, is a rugby ground doing its best to fake its suitability for cricket. Seddon Park in Hamilton, where the three-match series now moves, at least feels like a cricket ground, but the boundary hits are not much bigger. With campaigners also fighting to prevent a flyover affecting the atmosphere at Basin Reserve, nobody could suggest that New Zealand's compilation of cricket grounds are in perfect shape.
