  1. Wagner & Blundell really did impress: The surface was good, both teams bowled a little short. For this reason their first innings efforts cost NZ. Blundell is quite technical and classical. I further hope that more surfaces like Perth & Melbourne are produced and classical technique stays; 20/20 is a fine medium, but should not permeate Tests. I would have liked more catchers set for Blundell, but he deservedly made history, as did Wagner, who nabbed Smith for wicket 200. Trans-Tasman rivalries should be five-Tests ala the Ashes.

  2. A consoltion for me too. I was backing kiwis to win this series

  3. Congratulations…100🎊🎊🎊🧨🧨🧨🧨🧨🎊Happy Start

  4. Blundell shokd replace munro in odi

  5. Newzealand Must play more cricket but unfortunately they play less then others they r more humble respected on d field

  6. One of the best player for the NZ in all formats

  7. One of the best innings I have seen. While the wickets kept tumbling on the other end by the scorching Aussie pace, he stood there like a rock, and was the last batsman to get out in the innings.
    It was an absolute masterpiece consisting grit, determination, technique and talent.

  8. Very very dangers cricketer bundeel

  9. His batting look like Jason Roy

  10. he resembles astle when he plays shots..erasmus was poor on his decisions especially against Williamson in second innings..I know it's just clipped but he raised finger immly after appeal..should have given not out when ball was about to miss leg stump

  11. First tom Latham and second tom blundell.

  12. Oh my he reminds me of Sehwag. Amazing

  13. NZ a club team of bits & pieces morons 😭.pak fan

  14. Scored 100 in world cup warmup match. Fought alone but didn't get selected in the team. Today's Blundell's multi-coloured batting grip was in support of six-year-old Hollie Beattie who is battling cancer..
    Opened the nz innings and batted till last. Only man to score century for nz at MCG. Fought alone today also. You are truly blessed by God.!

  15. Blundell smashes great pace attack like team Australia

  16. Powerful players comes from powerful places like blundell

  17. Some shades of nathan astle

  18. Makeshift opener, has batted mostly in the middle order in his first class career, playing only his third test match, team under pressure no batsman had performed and against all odds he has scored a ton against a high quality bowling attack, terrific innings 👏👏

  19. I think New Zealand get a quality batsman to support Williamson & Taylor.

  20. Very good innings remembering Nathan Astle fastest 200

  21. He raised his bat with handle pointing upwards after his 100 for a reason. He is raising money for a young girl suffering from a rare form of cancer by selling bat grips like the one he used.

  22. Blundell = Hybrid of Astle & Sehwag

  23. His batting style replicates with sehwag, love to watch such a great style…

  24. Only blundell is fighting to Australia bowler. Hands up to

  25. He is a very talented batsman

  26. Good player, very strong square of the wicket especially onside.

  27. I'm Aussie but I absolutely loved watching this guy smack fours while wearing the black baggy cap at the end. Top knock. Some of those pulls shot off our quicks were just fantastic as well.

  28. Innings of stroke play supper

  29. Seriously it was a brilliant tone by tom he was playing so fearless, starc, cummins, all struggled against him he was playing as he doesn't care about the scoreboard and just want to put pressure on bowler's that should be the spirit to tackle against team like Australia, his teammates should learn this kind of spirit…

  30. His batting style same as Nathan astle

  31. Blundell should be a Permanent Opener with Tom Latham..
    He's much much better than Jeet Raval.👌

    Anyone agree?

  32. Should been out for naught if wasn’t for Paines lack of reviewing

  33. Blundell deserved to play all formats

  34. What a pullshots he played….. ❤️❤️❤️

  35. seems like duplicate of Nathan Astle …………..
