James Anderson s 300th Test wicket (81 Tests) wasn’t enough to hold back New Zealand’s determined effort to win the 1st Test at Lords, at start of play today Paddy Power was still offering 11/1 on a tourist win, while I think a close look at the weekend weather forecast may lead to a draw.
Cricket Memorabilia from this series will be very collectable and signings are taking place during the series, of particular interest to collectors are signed cricket bats, scorecards, autographs and tour itineraries.
England need to concentrate on getting NZ out for under 232 followed by a big 2ind innings, the bowling talents of Southee Wagner and Boult who seem more than capable of restricting runs and getting wickets will not make things easy

Cricket Collectables pertaining to any of the Top 10 bowlers is a great way to start a memorabilia collection.
