What a day of cricket. unable to say whether it is a test or T20 cricket. Rain delayed the chase but not the victory of England(England vs New Zealand).
England vs New Zealand – Test 3 Day 5
Pope 82 (108) added 1 run to his previous score and was dismissed by the Southee’s inswinger which took the off stump away. An old ball with a shiny side outside but the wobble seam changed to nip-backers took the off stump. The aggressive batsman Bairstow joined hands with Root and dispatched NZ bowling.
Bairstow crossed 51 runs in 30 balls. 111 run partnership between the Bairstow 71(44)* and Root 86(125)* for the fourth wicket sweeping the series 3-0 against the world test champions.
Joe Root and Daryl Mitchell are players of the series.
England will be facing India in a 5th test match at Edgbaston on July 1. Ben Stokes at presentations said “Different opposition we still have a series to draw. we will come out exactly with the same mindset”
