New Zealand bowling coach Shane Jurgensen “believes” that the first continuous test will be the result despite being cleared on the third day due to the Lord’s persistent rain on Friday. The rain played spoilsport for three days and not a single ball was thrown because it was raining before the game was canceled. The start of the game was delayed and then the day was cleared. “I think there’s enough time to believe that the result can be there,” stuff.co.nz quoted Jurgensen as saying.
England is running 267 races and has limited New Zealand to 378 on the second day of the opening test.
“The advantage for us is that we have the races on the board and that’s always good, to be ahead in this phase of the game in the races,” Jurgensen said.
The Kiwi Bowling coach believes the result could be difficult, but New Zealand will continue to claim victory in the final two days of the opening test.
“In two days, it will be difficult to get the result, but at the same time, we still have to believe and continue to push,” Jurgensen said.
“From our point of view, it’s likely to fit the way of thinking a little bit, but for us it’s still a good five-day cricket or, of course, a four-hit,” he added.
On the second day, Devon Conway’s double tones and Pacers ’tight bowls helped New Zealand prevail before Joe Root and Rory Burns had a stronghold for England.
England will start their first inning from 111/2, in the wrinkles of Burns (59 *) and Root (42 *).
