New Zealand vs England 1st Test Day 4 Review & Day 5 Preview
A tough day for the English team is once again waiting as they have been in trouble since the 1st Test kicked off.
but the English batting lineup is not making the same mistake as they did in their 1st innings. Although the openers did not give a stable start, but the middle order batting lineup successfully managed to resist the opposition bowling. Alaistar Cook went back to the pavilion scoring just 2 runs, while Mark Stoneman and Joe Root scored half centuries, but these sort of innings by the middle order batting lineup is not enough as per the trail pasted by Kiwis.
Dawid Malan is currently on the pitch with 19 runs not out and the English team is looking forward to him to score more runs as much as he could. Ben Stokes and Jonny Bairstow are two other main batsmen who have yet to play and they will have to play some responsible innings.
Trent Boult is the man in form as he picked up two wickets, while Neil Wagner took only 1 wicket. So the English batting lineup will have to play Trent Boult’ spell quite carefully to extend the batting innings till the day 5 in order to make the test as draw in result.
