Australia’s star bowler Pat Cummins has appreciated the pitch of Lord’s where the ongoing 1st Test match between England and New Zealand is taking place.
Pacers Dominating ENG VS NZ 1st Test
Well, the pacers have dominated the ongoing first Test match between England and New Zealand at the Lord’s Stadium in London. As the game kickstarted, New Zealand won the toss and decided to bat first however, the England bowlers rattled the batting lineup of Kiwis, who could only manage to score just 132 runs in the first innings.
Yes, the Kiwis were bundled out for just 132 runs and the England cricket team is currently in a strong position in the ongoing first Test match at Lords. While Anderson picked four wickets, Matthew Potts, who was making his dream debut took four wickets including four maiden overs. Both the bowlers picked eight wickets and the rest of the two were dismissed by Ben Stokes and Stuart Broad.
In reply, the England cricket team also managed to score just 141 runs in the first innings. However, the interesting fact about the game was that all the overs were bowled by the pacers in both the innings. Ajaz Patel and Matt Parkinson were not even used for a single over. As there is a visible swing on the wicket, the pacers were seen troubling the batters.
