What an unexpected start to this World Cup from New Zealand. Winning is fine, but winning this way is some statement. Rachin Ravindra wouldn't have played if Ferguson was fit. Now he's literally demanding his place in the side even when Kane and Southee return. Could he come in for Will Young? Does he keep Sodhi away too? Happy headaches for the Blackcaps. England need Ben Stokes fit very soon. Do they think of Topley? Some important questions on the sheet for them now. But they are a side known to bounce back. They are known for their positive attitude. You never know, the beast in them could have just been woken up. That's curtains for the day. We have Pakistan playing Netherlands tomorrow in Hyderabad.
