The current first Test between England and New Zealand has swayed back and forth like a pendulum. However, as stumps were called on Day 3, England had the advantage as they were just 61 runs away from taking a 1-0 series lead.

In their fourth innings, after being assigned a target of 277, Joe Root and Ben Stokes spearheaded England’s comeback. However, New Zealand initially held the advantage after reducing England to 69/4 in the 20th over.

Alex Lees, Zak Crawley, Ollie Pope, and Jonny Bairstow were unable to remain at the crease for an extended period of time, and it all came down to Root and Stokes.

Former England captain Michael Vaughan was enraged at Jonny Bairstow’s dismissal in the twentieth over.

Vaughan, who was on air for BBC’s Test Match Special at the moment, ultimately stated: “I am sorry, that is dumb. That is pathetic!”
