England missing the third strike bowler

The English-Kiwi game was very exciting at least till the first 15 overs of New Zealander's innings. English batsmen should have played more sensibly as a total of 265 was achievable. Thanks to Shane Bond's spell and unnecessary cameo by Pietersen, 209 was never a defendable total. But what a start by the English bowlers! 1/1, 2/3, 3/19 and then a late 4/72 brought the English back into the game. They should have played a fourth seamer and the result could have been a little more exciting. Though I don't think this English team deserves a spot in the last four. And should I have written anything about the thrashing of Neds by South Africans? Thats some wicked Cricket!
