ENG vs NZ Test 2 Day 1ENG vs NZ Test 2 Day 1: Joe Root and Tom Latham will be focussing on winning the match.

England vs New Zealand (ENG vs NZ) 2nd Test Day 1: Rory Burns and Dominic Sibley put on a 72-run opening stand which gave England the advantage in the first session of the day but the rest of the English batting order — bar Dan Lawrence (67*) — fell away to the New Zealand bowling attack on Day 1. At stumps, England were 258/7, with Lawrence and Mark Wood the unbeaten batsmen.

After the drawn first Test at the Lord’s, England and New Zealand are taking on each other in the second Test at the Edgbaston Stadium in Birmingham on Thursday. The hosts are under pressure after debutant Ollie Robinson was suspended for his old racist and sexist tweets raked up a controversy which later became bigger after some other English players’ old tweets went viral. Meanwhile, the visitors are playing this crucial game without their regular skipper Kane Williamson because he is resting his injured elbow. Tom Latham is leading the Kiwi team while Will Young comes into the starting lineup and will bat at number three at Edgbaston.

ENG 169/5

20:15 (IST)10 Jun 2021
Time for some tea!

20:07 (IST)10 Jun 2021

19:44 (IST)10 Jun 2021

19:00 (IST)10 Jun 2021
Burns comes to the rescue

After some hellish five overs, Burns alleviates some pressure off the England pair's shoulders! A cracking four, slapped through the covers against Henry, helps the opener move to 49*. On the other hand, Pope is on 4*. Hundred up too! ENG: 102/3 (40 overs)

18:33 (IST)10 Jun 2021

After Wagner picked up his first wicket of the Test, dismissing Crawley with a catch at the third slip, England have lost another wicket now. And it's a big one.

Burns is on 37*. ENG: 85/3 (33.5 overs)

18:15 (IST)10 Jun 2021

England, having gotten off to an ideal start, will look to solidify their position as the second session starts. Henry restarts the proceedings with the ball. Sibley takes it easy and then sends one through the gap between the slips and gully. But right after his fifth boundary, he falls on 35. Edged and gone! Just the breakthrough New Zealand were looking for! ENG: 72/1 (30 overs)

17:31 (IST)10 Jun 2021
Time for some lunch!

16:58 (IST)10 Jun 2021
Sibley, Burns bring back the boundaries

Later, Burns (23*) joins in on the act and smacks him for a four towards third man. Sibley again... and now it's starting to look like the start of a dominating partnership. ENG: 52/0 (20 overs)

16:32 (IST)10 Jun 2021
ENG keep it under control

England openers have done well to tick off the first hour. The ball was not swinging prodigiously and whatever swing was there the two batsmen have handled it well. Burns is on 10* and Sibley is on 11*. Slow and steady win the race? ENG: 25/0 (14 overs)

16:06 (IST)10 Jun 2021
