England Chase 294 after Panesar picks up 6-37

Monty Panesar has brought England back into the game by picking up 6-37 in the second innings. England require a further 218 runs with 9 wickets in hand. The weather is horrible around the UK and may prolong the result. There are still two days left for England to make a remarkable comebnack and win the test chasing 294 for victory – it would be the most successful chase at Old Trafford.

New Zealand have Ross Taylor’s 154 not out helped set up a massive total of 381 in the first innings. England could only manage 202 in reply. As mentioned it was Monty Panesar that has helped England have a sniff in this game. Strangely 4 out of the 6 were LBW decisions – most of them looked like good decisions as seen above.

Prediction? ? New Zealand have plenty on the board and with Vettori getting a five wickets in the first and Panesar 6 wickets in the second innings the pitch looks like it will do too much for England to pull off an incredible win.
