I hadn't gone on record with a prediction, though if I had I'd have put the series result much closer than now seems likely.
The England bowling is being carried by Andrew Flintoff, with intermittent support from Matthew Hoggard and Ashley Giles, and an occasional good ball from the others. Today most of the team played like New Zealanders.
