Vettori states the obvious

Good to see that Daniel Vettori agrees with Cricket Burble's view on England dropping Hoggard:

"You have to look at the way Anderson bowled," said Vettori. "For us to be bowled out for 198 in the first innings was purely down to him. He hit the right lengths early on and did a really good job. I suggest Hoggard would have done a similar job but to have fresh legs to do some very good work can only lift a team. New players coming in bring in enthusiasm and it lifts a team."

Well it might lift them in the short-term, but it's not going to bring consistent good performances over a long period. Here's hoping England put their best team out before too long.
