England vs New Zealand 2nd Test: Joe Root reverse scoops Tim Southee for stunning six, WATCH


Former England captain Joe Root continued his golden run with the bat by scoring 176 runs in just 211 balls in reply to New Zealand’s 553 on the fourth day of the second Test at Trent Bridge in Nottingham on Monday (June 13). Root started the first session of the fourth day with a brilliantly executed reverse-scoop shot that went all the way for a six.

The English batsman executed his shot with such precision, bowler Tim Southee at the other end could do nothing but watch the ball over the rope.

Root scored his 27th Test century with an impressive 176. The 31-year-old has 10 World Test Championship tons to his name and according to the ICC, Australia’s Marnus Labuschagne has nearly 1,000 more WTC runs than his nearest rival – 2,180 runs. The current ICC Test Player of the Year has also moved up to second place in the rankings for Test batsmen, with Labuschagne being the only player ahead of him.

Meanwhile, New Zealand took a 238-run lead with three wickets in the second innings remaining on the final day of the second Test against England on Monday. Two run outs and some poor shot selection from the tourists saw them slip closer to 224/7 and give England a glimmer of hope that they can get the Kiwis out early on Tuesday and then take the target.

All outcomes are possible, although a draw seems the most likely outcome and the main source of encouragement for New Zealand is that in-form Daryl Mitchell is unbeaten on 32 and will resume looking to score a score beyond England’s reach . Mitchell scored 190 runs in the first innings to complete his century at Lord’s in the first Test defeat and he looked comfortable on a good batting surface.

“If we can get to around 280 – maybe 300 is a bit greedy – it will be good for us,” said New Zealand batsman Devon Conway. “If we can get the ball in the right areas it can put England under pressure on the final day.”

In the opening session, New Zealand took a 14-run first innings lead after bowling out the hosts for 539 with Trent Boult taking a five-wicket haul, after thrashing through England’s lower order. England added just 66 runs for their final five-wicket haul on Monday and reached 539, but then found a swift breakthrough with James Anderson’s bowling captain Tom Latham (4).

Anderson’s 650th Test wicket was helped by Latham’s erroneous decision to drop the ball and England hoped to put pressure in the afternoon session, with the pacers showing signs of movement. But a century partnership between Young and Devon Conway restored the bat’s dominance on the ball which was evident throughout the match, before a quick shot gave England hope.

Conway (52) attempted to sweep Jack Leach, which Jonny Bairstow took over deep square leg to bring Henry Nicholls to the crease before tea. But in the first over after the break, England pulled a short wide delivery with Nicholls (3) straight down Alex Lee to backward point.

Michael Bracewell tried to force matters with a 17-ball 25, but his attempt to top Matt Potts ended with the ball in the hands of Broad at mid-on. Another run out gave England their seventh wicket, with Mitchell blinded for the second run, sending back Tim Southee who was stranded.
