New Zealand triumph over England squad

New Zealand won by an innings and 65 runs in the first Test against England at Mount Mangani. England made 353 in their first innings and the Kiwis scored 615 runs. Batting first, England were bowled out for 197 in their second innings with a massive 262-run deficit. The Kiwis took a 1-0 lead in the two-Test series. Watling made a double century in this match and became the first wicket-keeper to score a double century for the Kiwis. On the final day of the game, the Kiwis pacers embarrassed England with their swing at the overnight score of 55/3. England captain Rudd, who was supposed to help him, joined Pavilion for a short run. The Root team scored 11 runs in the Grand Home bowling with a score of 69. At this stage, Joe Denley-Ben Strokes was the team.

Both of them played cautiously without playing risky shots. The pair reached the 120-run mark. After 26 overs, the pair were separated after adding 52 runs for the fifth wicket. Southee clean bowled Ben Strokes (28). This caused a huge shock to England.

England were hoping for a win soon after Joe Denley (35) joined the pavilion. England's dashing player Jose Butler (0) added to the pavilion after a further five runs, and England's defeat ended. At this stage, the English all-rounder Sam Karan, along with Joffra Archer, resisted the Kiwis bowlers.

The pair played fast and added 59 runs in 97 balls. Joffra Archer (30) was out for a team-high 197 runs. The Stuart Broad (0) pavilion was immediately followed by a 65-run win over the Kiwis. Wagner took 5 wickets and Santner took three wickets while Southee and Grand Home took another wicket. The second Test between the two teams will begin at Hamilton on November 29.
