In Broad’s case, he’s actually done more than enough. Rocky and Invincible will still need to start the County Championship convincingly to be assured of their places. An England win in Christchurch should help their cause. Their 123-run partnership has been vital to England’s chances of a rare away win.

Hopefully in New Zealand’s second venture to the crease, bowlers Mark Wood and Jack Leach can secure their immediate Test futures as well. As the old adage goes, never change a winning team (Of course we haven’t won this match… yet!).
