The first Test match between New Zealand and England at Lord’s Ground is looking to be in a strong position until the end of the first day’s play. The team scored 246 runs for the loss of only 3 wickets and Devon Conway (136 not out) and Henry Nichols (46) were in the crease. However, New Zealand captain Kane Williamson was unable to make much in the first innings and returned to the pavilion after scoring just 13. Williamson was bowled by James Anderson and took the Kiwi captain’s wicket for the 7th time in Test cricket.

In fact, in the 25th over of New Zealand’s innings, Kane Williamson failed to understand the ball coming into James Anderson and the bat took the inside edge and the ball went to the wicket. The Kiwi hero has no answer to this spectacular throw delivered by Anderson. However, Anderson could not get much wickets in the first day’s match. New Zealand batsman Devon Conway, who made his Test debut, won everyone’s hearts with his batting and scored a century. Ally Robinson took two wickets for England.

James Anderson equals Alastair Cook with his Test debut in England, with more Test appearances. If he plays in the second Test against New Zealand, then he will play more Test matches for England. Speaking of Anderson, he has taken 614 wickets in Test matches so far. As a fast bowler, he is the highest wicket taker in the world.
