Only 15 wickets could fall in the first three days of the Nottingham Test. In such a situation, this test was moving towards a draw. After the fall of 12 wickets here on the fourth day, there was hope for the results. In the first session on the fifth day, England sent New Zealand’s tail batsmen to the pavilion quickly and won the match by scoring fast runs in the remaining game of the day.
Historic stormy innings of Bairstow
England chased this target of 299 runs on the last day with ease in the beginning. However, by the time 56 runs came, England had lost its three wickets. Joe Root’s wicket was also involved in this. By reaching 93 runs, England’s fourth wicket also fell. From here it seemed that instead of chasing the target, England would try to draw the match but it did not happen. Jonny Bairstow had different intentions. He made big shots one after the other and tied the hope of victory. He hit 14 fours and 7 sixes in his innings of 136 runs in 92 balls. Together with captain Ben Stokes, he gave England the basis of victory by sharing 179 runs in 121 balls while playing like T20 in Tests. Bairstow was dismissed after scoring 136 runs, while Stokes returned to the pavilion only after winning an unbeaten innings of 75 runs off 70 balls.
New Zealand 1st innings: 553 runs
England 1st innings: 539 runs
New Zealand 2nd innings: 284 runs
England 2nd Innings: 299/5
