England vs New Zealand: On the first day of the Nottingham Test, only captain Ben Stokes and James Anderson could achieve success for England.
England started the Test series against New Zealand with a win at the Lord’s Test, but on the very first day of the Nottingham Test, the team lacked the spirit of that victory. On the first day of the second Test at Trent Bridge on Friday, June 10, hosts New Zealand made a tremendous improvement in their batting and scored 318 runs at stumps for the loss of just 4 wickets. However, New Zealand also got the advantage of not having a helpful position for the bowlers. At the same time, the pair of Darryl Mitchell and Tom Blundell, who batted amazingly in the second innings of the Lord’s Test, once again proved to be a problem for England and both of them again ended the day by adding 149 runs.
