England vs New Zealand Day 1: England bundled out New Zealand for just 132 runs on the basis of veteran pacer James Anderson and debutant young fast bowler Matthew Potts.
Change is the law of life. This thing is very popular and is often used with every change. It takes some time to know whether the results of change are good or bad, it is not right to judge any change on the basis of its immediate result. This principle also applies in the game of cricket. At present, the latest example of this is the England Test team, where a lot of changes have taken place in the last few days and the first opportunity to test that change was found on Thursday, June 2. On the first day of the Lord’s Test against New Zealand, England bowled well, but the batting showed the same old condition, which had laid the foundation for the change.
England scored 116 runs in their first innings on the first day of the first Test of the three-match Test series between England and New Zealand, but lost 7 wickets to get there. Once again the team’s strong bowling did not get the support of the batsmen and despite the new leadership and the arrival of some new faces in the playing XI, the first day was not as expected. New Zealand had batted first and were bundled out for just 132 runs in front of the deadly bowling of England. At the end of the day’s play, England are 16 runs behind.
