In the ongoing third test match between New Zealand and England, a wonderful wicket was seen, on which the bowler did not even believe. The batsman also could not understand anything for a while.
Jack Leach was bowling for England in the 56th over of New Zealand’s first innings. On the second ball of the over, Henry Nicholls played a straight shot and the ball hit non-striker Daryl Mitchell’s bat and headed towards midoff, which was caught by Lees. All this happened so quickly that no one understood anything. At first, even Leech himself could not understand. Later he understood the whole matter.
Kiwi team crosses 200+ on day one
The Kiwis have made a strong start in the third Test. He made 225 runs for five wickets in the first innings on Thursday. Daryl Mitchell returned unbeaten on 78 and Tom Blundell on 45.
Liege said – did not like this method of wicket
Reacting to this wicket, Jack Leach said, ‘Did not like this way of getting wickets. However, it was very lucky for me. He felt that he did not deserve the wicket. However, the left-arm spinner also said that he bowled very tightly before getting the wicket.
Leach said, ‘I didn’t even know if it was allowed. I don’t really like getting out like that, but I felt like I bowled very well to Nicholls and that’s why I got there. You just have to accept it. It’s a silly game, isn’t it? This has made me think. It’s a stupid game we play.’
Jack Leach spent 75 runs in 30 overs on the first day and took two wickets. He dismissed Will Young on a personal score of 20 runs LBW. After this he got the wicket of Nicholas.
