Will Young saw a hundred girls and boys during Friday’s final match after New Zealand helped him to a strong position in the second and final test at Edgbaston against England. There were only three balls left on the second day when Young made 82 knockouts after part-time Dan Lawrence’s spinner turned Ollie Pope into a short leg. Lawrence’s first Test wicket affected the stalks, with New Zealand 229-3 well positioned to respond to England’s first 303 innings, a deficit of just 74. Young shared 122 positions with opener Devon Conway (80) and 92 with Ross Taylor (46 away). Conway’s entry saw the support of his 200 starters in the first test at the Lord’s last week with another spectacular blow.
James Anderson got a new England appearance in the 162 test match, leading longtime Stuart Broad’s new teammate to direct the hosts ’attack with a 2-22 loss to 15-22.
This meant that Broad beat Courtney Walsh 519 Test wickets to beat the former fast bowler when she placed sixth on the history list.
At the start of New Zealand’s Broad Struck response, Tom Latham, instead of the injured batting star Kane Williamson, as captain, had six friends.
Nottinghamshire paceman Broad thought Conway had been sidelined for 22 years when Zak slipped to Crawley.
But when field referee Richard Kettleborough asked for a review when he made a gentle “not outside” signal, he felt the reproduction of officer Michael Gough felt that there was not enough evidence to cancel the call.
Young, replacing Williamson’s third in one of six great changes to the New Zealand team, had to be seven when Olly Stone passed a quick bowling alley, but England captain Joe Root threw the usual catch on the first slip.
The left-handed Conway was largely uneasy, at the age of 80, when a strange child in concentration saw Flamboyantly openly straight to Crawley in a deep square leg with 143 ball entries including 12 legs.
When New Zealand moved to 154-2, Anderson had Taylor lbw 11 to reveal that the ball was missing the leg stem.
Young, who scored two hundred first-round picks in English County Durham this season, then completed the girls-boys test including fifty-132 balls including just seven to four four-pointers in the third game.
Earlier, England, aged 175-6, resumed on the night of 258-7.
Lawrence was 67 years away and Mark Wood 16 away from Rory Burns who scored 81 openers on Thursday after Lord’s hundred.
While Mark Wood made 41 entertainers, no one in England’s tail could be wrinkled, with Lawrence, 81, not finishing until the first century of the test.
Trent Boult led the New Zealand attack, recalling that the left-footed ball took 4-85 in 29 overs.
It was gratifying for Boult before New Zealand appeared in next week’s World Opening Championship final against Southampton of India.
