What they said...

England captain Alastair Cook

"We were a little bit sloppy in that warm-up game, but actually some of the stuff that came out of it was really positive as well. Yes, we were disappointed to lose that game. But actually it doesn't really matter - the important stuff starts tomorrow."

New Zealand captain Brendon McCullum

"We know this is a huge series - we are taking on one of giants of the Test game. We were competitive throughout the T20 and ODI series, but Test cricket is where we and the public want to see improvement."{"count":2,"widgets":[{"name":"Live Test Cricket (88019210)","id":1,"type":"tvprogramme","content":{"participantId":"19","participantName":"Live Test Cricket (88019210)","paParticipantId":"88019210"}},{"name":"Additional Media 3","id":2,"type":"media","content":{"mediaTypeId":"11","imageDim":"null","mediaPosition":"3"}}]}
