Britain eye whitewash after Day 3

New Zealand were 168-5 in their subsequent innings, a lead of 137, with paceman Matthew Potts having taken 2-20,

at the point when downpour cut off Saturday’s third day of the third Test.

In any case, with England having pursued down 299 inside daily to win

the next Test and go 2-0 up in the three-match series,

the Black Caps actually had a lot to do if they somehow

happened to keep away from a whitewash, with two days’ play staying in Leeds.

Prior, Jonny Bairstow, straight from his match and series-winning hundred years at Trent Bridge,

expanded his short-term 130 not out to 162.

He had joined Overton on Friday, with the hosts in critical waterways at 55-6.

However, their England record seventh-wicket stand of 241 was

the foundation of an irresistible complete of 360 – – a first innings lead of 31.

Dark Caps opener Will Young then, at that point, fell economically before a second-wicket stand of 97 steadied the sightseers.

New Zealand commander Kane Williamson cover-drove

the initial chunk of restricting captain Ben Stokes’ most notable bowling spell this Test for four.

Tom Latham constrained the all-rounder away for his 6th border before a solitary took him to a 70-ball fifty in

a series where his past best score had been a small 26.

Latham, dropped by Joe Root in the slips on 72, tumbled to the main ball after tea.

The transcending Overton, in for harmed England extraordinary James Anderson,

him got behind for 76  substitute wicketkeeper Bairstow,

with best option gloveman Ben Foakes sidelined by a solid back on Saturday.

Devon Conway switched Root’s most memorable ball after the sever his cushions,

just for Ollie Pope to hold an eminent one-gave get at short leg.

Conway’s exit ignited a small scale breakdown that saw three wickets lost for only nine runs,

with New Zealand’s 152-2 immediately changed into 161-5.

  • Williamson nonchalantly flicked at Potts outside off stump to give Bairstow a basic catch,
  • the star batsman tossing his head back in misery
  • following the finish of a very much made 48 highlighting eight limits.
  • Left-arm spinner Jack Leach, straight from his 5-100 in the main innings,
  • then misdirected Henry Nicholls into offering a low bring get back.
  • Daryl Mitchell, who has previously hit three hundreds this series,

was four not out when downpour finished the day’s play, with Tom Blundell unbeaten on five.
