NZ vs ENG: In the second Test between England and New Zealand, the English team faced an unexpected defeat despite being in a strong position at one point. The wicket of Ben Foakes was the biggest reason for their defeat.
Foakes’ Wicket Shatters England’s Hopes of Victory
When England needed only 7 runs to win, Ben Foakes was at the crease with 35 runs while Jake Lees had scored 0 runs and the team had already lost 8 wickets. With Foakes on the crease, England was confident of victory. However, Foakes attempted a big shot on Saudi’s short-pitched ball but ended up hitting it in the air. Wagner took a great catch while jumping in the air, and Foakes had to go back. This resulted in England losing the match.
