NZL Vs ENG, 1st Test : Wagner’s five-for seals crushing Kiwis win

243

eil Wagner backed up BJ Watling’s masterclass and an all-round Mitchell Santner to seal victory by an innings and 65 runs for New Zealand against England in the first Test at Mount MaunganuiV

England were bowled out for 197 in the second innings on Monday, 25 November, as Wagner picked up his seventh five-wicket haul in Tests, dismissing Jofra Archer and Stuart Broad in back-to-back deliveries.

With only two wickets in hand, the visitors fought hard in the final session to delay the inevitable as Archer (30) along with Sam Curran (29*) put on a half-century partnership for the ninth wicket. However, reintroduced into the attack, Wagner broke the 59-run stand by bowling short to Archer, who top-edged the pull to fine leg. He then trapped Broad plumb in front to complete the formalities.
