The New Zealand – England teams are facing each other in the Test match taking place in Wellington. It is already known that new boy Brooke has created havoc. Meanwhile, in the second Test, England player Ollie Pope impressed everyone by taking a sensational catch. Nicholls played a reverse sweep in the 25th over bowled by Jack Leach in New Zealand’s first innings. But the short selection was wrong.. the ball spun but unexpectedly the bat took the edge and the ball hit his helmet and went towards silly point. In this order, the Pope who was fielding there found the ball with a single hand. Nicholls (30), who did not expect this, left the field in despair. By the end of the second day, the Kiwis scored 138 runs for the loss of 7 wickets in the first innings. Earlier, England declared the innings after scoring 435 runs in 87.1 overs.

If not.. England cricketer Harry Brook has achieved a rare feat. He became the first cricketer to score more than 8 hundred runs in 9 innings in the 145-year history of Test cricket. So far, he broke the record of former Indian cricketer Vinod Kambli (798) who has scored the most runs in 9 innings. Vinod is preceded by Herbert Sutlkiff (780), Sunil Gavaskar (778) and Everton Weekes (777). Currently, the England team is playing a Test series against New Zealand. In the second test, Harry was on 184 runs. On the other hand, Joe Root (101) also scored a century. Both of them added a record 294 runs for the fourth wicket.
