Geraint Jones may have received the man-of-the-match award at Headingley for his magnificent debut ton and heroics behind the stumps, but the basis for Englandís series-clinching victory over New Zealand was cemented by Marcus Trescothick. England had to close down a 400-plus opening effort by the Kiwis on an unpredictable pitch and Tresís brilliant century was the foundation Michael Vaughanís side needed to have any chance. It would have been so easy to go into a shell on the notorious Headingley track, but Tres stayed positive throughout and pushed them on to the back foot. His achievement paved the way for Freddie Flintoff and Geraint to plunder the runs later after Mark Butcher, Vaughny and Graham Thorpe all looked uneasy. I think Freddie played arguably his finest international knock although falling just short of three figures while Geraint made it look oh so easy when it was anything but. He looks like he is already a fixture in the side after just three so-called Ďtrialí Tests. For England to score more than 500 on that track was incredible and then some hostile bowling from Mathew Hoggard and Steve Harmison saw the Kiwis bend and finally buckle. This really is developing into a very good England side and the team spirit is magnificent whereas the Kiwis, who arrived here with such high hopes, now go into the final Test already having lost the series and looking in total disarray. England will not consider the job done even though they have a 2-0 lead. They will want a whitewash at Trent Bridge and I am sure they will be focussed on that when they take to the field on Thursday.
