Trent Boult took two two-wicket wickets on his return to New Zealand duties as England held Edgbaston on Thursday in the second and final day of the first round before England beat Stumps 258-7. The hosts were 85-3 and 175-6, but opener Rory Burns ’81 and Dan Lawrence 67 didn’t make sure the Blackcap didn’t completely dominate. England’s last two wickets have added 83 races so far, with Olly Stone (20) and Mark Wood’s workshop out of 16 58 balls after a Covid-19 reduction of around 17,000 people.
The quick left-footed Boult, who missed the opening series drawn at the Lord’s last week after a family appearance, pulled out the unfortunate Burns and James Bracey, who failed the Lord’s first ball to follow his duck’s debut. shipments 2-60 return 23 times.
Matt Henry did the initial damage for England, who were 72-0, lost three purchases on 13 runs shortly after lunch and captain Joe Root had just four.
The collapse began when Henry, resting with Tim Southee, appeared before New Zealand appeared in the final of the World Test Championships in Southampton, India, next week when Dom Sibley caught up with the 35-year-old knockout.
England’s 72-1 draw turned 73-2 as Zak followed Crawley’s unfortunate form when Neil Wagner was caught in the slip of an Easter duck in his left arms – the only member of the Lord’s survivor of the New Zealand attack.
It was Crawley’s ninth single-figure score in 11 tests since last year’s stunning 267 against Pakistan.
Henry then captured Root’s coveted purchase.
Root won the draw and despite conditions that seemed to be his favorite attack in England, again without a specialist tour, he injected Ben Stokes and the rest of Jos Buttler, Jonny Bairstow and Chris Woakes.
New Zealand had to make three changes due to injury, with captain and locksmith Kane Williamson (elbow), Mitchell Santner (severed finger) and BJ Watling (back pain) missing.
Their places were taken by Will Young, Ajaz Patel and Tom Blundell respectively, led by Tom Latham.
Patel and goalkeeper Blundell were reunited when Ollie Pope (19) was caught behind the cutting edge of his left arm.
Boult then began Burns, who, after observing the three figures behind the Lord’s tissues, turned to an outside swinger, and Latham caught him well on the slides.
The Surrey left opener faced 187 balls, including 10 fours.
Burns ’exit came from the last ball of the 59th and the first of the 61st was tempted by Boult to drive Bracey to another outside end as he had a great catch with Daryl Mitchell (son of former All Blacks coach John Mitchell) on the third slip.
Lawrence hit several elegant records while collecting 75 balls from fifty to eight to four.
Meanwhile, James Anderson’s 162nd appearance made him the best player in the England Test, breaking the record shared with retired former captain Alastair Cook.
Stone replaced Ollie Robinson. He was successful in the Lord’s test after making his debut after being interrupted from International Cricket by his racist and sexist historical posts on Twitter.
