Eden Park is the main sports ground in Auckland, New Zealand for both rugby union during winter, and cricket in summer. To accommodate both sports, the cricket pitch is removable. The ground is located three kilometres southwest of Auckland's CBD, straddling the boundary between the Kingsland and Mt. Eden suburbs.

Eden Park has a crowd capacity of 42,000 for cricket, and 45,472 for rugby. This is the largest of any New Zealand sports arena. There are no standing areas. Temporary seating in front of the ASB Stand and the West Stand is required for the capacity of 45,472 to be reached. Due to sight-screens and the larger area required for cricket matches, cricket capacity is less.

Great Innings by England.

Pleased we've dismissed Ryder as he looks an interesting prospect.

I really can't see NZ chasing the Total now, but they've chased a similar total down before against the Aussies, so you never know.

Well we're both wrong, as they only need 37 runs to win from 7 or so overs, looking very likely that they'll win now.

Really didn't think they'd pull it off.

New Zealand win the series 3-1.

England 242/7 (50 ov)
New Zealand 213/6 (37.0/37 ov)

New Zealand won by 34 runs (D/L method)

Strange thing, we've been in a drought down in this end of the world but we've had a lot of games decided by the D/L method due to rain.

I know, quite a few atcually have been decided via D/L.

I think Englands next Tour is in West Indies.

I would think we'd win there, we won the Test Series fairly easy back in the UK last Summer, where Chanderpaul was fairly amazing, as usual.
