In the ongoing first Test between England and New Zealand, Stuart Broad bowled a ripping delivery to make a mess of Kyle Jamieson’s stumps. After witnessing such a beautiful delivery from the veteran pacer, the newly-appointed coach Brendon McCullum could not hide his happiness and applauded the delivery while sitting in the dressing room.
The Lord’s Test is getting tangier with each passing over as the scale is changing sides every hour. Earlier, the Kiwis began the English tour by winning the toss and batting first. However, the visitors failed to negotiate with James Anderson and Matty Potts’ swing as they were bundled out for a score of 132/10 in the first innings.
Meanwhile, England batters failed to take the advantage and the Kiwi bowlers helped their team to mount a comeback in the game. Tim Southee & co. dismantled the English batting for just 141/10.
In the 2nd innings, riding on Daryl Mitchell’s century and Tom Blundell’s 96 runs, New Zealand managed to amass 285 runs in the 2nd innings. The English team needed 277 runs in the fourth innings to win the contest.
Stuart Broad bowls a jaffa to send Kyle Jamieson back
Once England managed to break the partnership between Daryl Mitchell and Tom Blundell, the onus was upon the bowlers to dismiss the Kiwis early to bring the home side back into the game.
The veteran pacer Stuart Broad took the onus upon himself to dismiss Kyle Jamieson who is a handy batter lower down the order. On the 5th delivery of the 84th delivery, Broad delivered a short of the good length delivery from over the wicket. The bowl landed on the seam and moved out to beat Jamieson’s defence to disturb the stumps behind him.
England’s new coach Brendon McCullum looked impressed with Stuart Broad’s delivery, and he could be seen applauding the efforts from the dugout.
