Hopefully we won't be seeing him again. England still have an opener problem. Lees and Crawley have both failed this series

It's been strange to see Southee struggle over the last couple of Tests. Maybe the years have finally caught up with him.

Williamson has been very out of sorts too. Apart from Mitchell, Blundell and Boult, they've not looked like a great side on this tour.
Slightly harsh maybe. Lets be clear they've had their noses in front every game so far. When De Grandholme bowled Stokes England were 75-5 chasing 290 at Lords, in turned out to be a no-ball, he and Root then turned the game. They were well in front at Trent Bridge setting 550, then having England 70-4 in chase of 300. This test again we were 55-6 in our first innings and got out of jail.
NZs top order has been worse than ours, they would have expected much much more from Latham, Williamson, Nicholls and Conway.
There biggest issue for me has been no spinner, in recent years they have had Vettori and then Santner, both high quality wicket takers, who could bowl defensive or attacking spells depending on the game situation, Patel and Bracewell have offered neither. Which has meant Southee has been over-bowled, something we have been very keen to avoid doing to Jimmy Anderson. High class performers need protecting if you want to enjoy them again and again.
