Ben Stokes’ first match in charge ended a roaring success as England achieved a five-wicket win over New Zealand at Lord’s Cricket Ground.
The opening day could not have started better with New Zealand finding themselves 36/6 thanks to tremendous bowling from James Anderson and newbie Matty Potts.
However, England then suffered their own batting collapse and only managed gain a nine run advantage in the first innings.
New Zealand took control on the second day with Daryl Mitchell hitting a century and Tom Blundell scoring 96 helping their side to 285 all out.
England’s second innings looked completely doomed when they once again found themselves at 69/4, still needing over 200 runs to win.
Out came both former captain Joe Root with new skipper Ben Stokes, who managed to guide England back into the match, before Foakes came out to join Root to finish off the job.
Root was on fire, continuing his spectacular form, hitting 115* and surpassing 10,000 Test runs in the process.
A century partnership between Root and the current wicket-keeper brought England to safety and they were able to enjoy their first Test win since August 2021.
