The first Test of the two-match series between England and New Zealand ended in a draw. On the last day of the match at Lord’s Cricket Ground, all experienced cricketers expressed their views on the manner of the England cricket team. On the last day of the game England needed to score less than 4 runs to win, but it seems England have not come to a win once in the match. On the fifth day of the match, it seems the England cricket team wants to draw the match. Former Australian cricketer Shane Warne has blamed England for this.
Warne wrote on Twitter that he was disappointed to see England’s negative attitude. Yesterday he did not feel the need to chase the target all at once. England missed a great opportunity in terms of how to chase the target on the fifth day, and it was disappointing for Test cricketers. Batting first, New Zealand scored 378, in response, England were reduced to 275 in the first innings. After that New Zealand scored 169 for six. England scored 273 in 70 overs to win the match.
Frustrated by England’s negative approach, he never thought of chasing very lucrative sums. A huge opportunity was missed on how to chase on Day 5, and the crowd, spectators and test cricket was thrilling! @ Robbery 612 assnassercricket Ic Michaelvaughn

England could only score 170 for three wickets and the match ended in a draw. Devon Conway, who scored a double century in his debut Test, was named Man of the Man. In addition to Warne, former England captain Nasser Hussein has also misrepresented England’s approach. The last Test of the series between the two teams will be played on June 10. Following this, New Zealand will play the final match of the ICC World Test Championship against India in Southampton from June 18. The second match of the series between England and New Zealand will be held in Edgbaston, Birmingham.
