The third and final Test between England and New Zealand will commence this week with England 2-0 up in the series already.
Jonny Bairstow and Ben Stokes put on a stunning display on the final day of the second Test at Trent Bridge which sealed England’s first series win in over a year.
England’s batters chased down 299 and ended the day with 22 overs and five wickets to spare to win one of the most remarkable Test matches in recent history.
Skipper Stokes even went so far as to say it exceeded the historic battle at Headingley in 2019. England chased their fifth-highest score of all time, and as they scored almost six runs per over, it was the fastest they have ever chased a target of more than 100.
Jonny Bairstow was the standout star on the final day, scoring 136 off just 77 balls - England’s second-fastest Test hundred and he was joined Stokes who ended the day on 75 not out.
The first innings also saw Ollie Pope bounce back into form with a stunning century while Joe Root carried on his incredible run with yet another ton, scoring 176.
England’s ‘new-era’ of cricket has so far been an all round success and Ben Stokes and his troops will hope they can seal the deal with a firm 3-0 whitewash over the Black Caps when the third Test comes around later this week.
