Blundell leads New Zealand comeback in first Test in England

0 minutes, 32 seconds Read

Blundell shared a 75-run partnership with opener Devon Conway (77), but the latter was equally valuable with late stands with tail-enders Kuggeleijn and Blair Tickner – both on Test debut – 53 and 59 respectively.

No. 11 Tickner contributed three runs as Blundell advanced from 80 to figures of three, accompanied by the roars of the home crowd under the setting sun, before he fell, caught and bowled by James Anderson. Was the last home wicket.

The wicket was historically significant for Anderson, who is on the verge of setting a world record for long with new ball partner Broad.

The pair have taken 1,001 wickets between them in the 133 Tests they played together 16 years ago.
