Test Match: New Zealand v England
Woke up 2.50 am. Wonder how Test Match going. Switch on iPhone? Better not, England will probably be eight down needing eight runs to win. Oh, come on, have a quick look. England are eight down needing nine to win. Foakes 33 not out, adds a couple but gets out hooking (sic). Leach on 0 after facing 25 balls finally gets a single. Anderson in. Hits a 4. 2 to win. Seems an age before score is updated. It eventually is (I’ve now been awake for 20 minutes). Anderson out and New Zealand win by 1 run after just short of five days of a match in which 1383 runs have been scored. Great game, cricket !!
Now, if Stokes hadn’t enforced the follow-on…….
- Should he have enforced it ?21 votes
