The third day of the ongoing Test between England and New Zealand at Lord’s has begun. At the beginning of the third day, England once again overpowered New Zealand.
Although the first good news of this day was for New Zealand, Daryl Mitchell, playing on 97 till the second day, completed his brilliant century. However, after the over of Stuart Broad, England again made a comeback in the match.
In the 84th over of the New Zealand innings, the gift of a hat-trick was taken by England. And the New Zealand team, which once seemed to be in a solid position, is now looking very weak again.
Broad got three consecutive wickets in this over. Out of which one player caught, one run out, and the third player returned to the pavilion straight clean bowled.
Daryl Mitchell, who had completed his century first, was dismissed for 108 runs. The catch went straight into the hands of the keeper with the outer part of the ball.
An LBW appealed for Colin de Grandhomme; the umpire gave not out, but he came out of the crease when Ollie Pope, standing in the slips, threw straight on the wicket and ran out.
After this, Stuart Broad, who came to bat for his next ball, sent Kyle Jamieson straight to the pavilion by bowling. The England team got the third wicket, reaching a hat-trick.
New Zealand won the toss and decided to bat first if we talk about this match where the team had scored 132 runs during the first innings.
The England team, which came to fulfill it, took a lead of 9 runs. After this, New Zealand batted brilliantly during the second innings and went ahead with the match in their hands.
