England vs New Zealand 2022, 2nd Test, Day 3 Live Cricket Score: England vs New Zealand Updates from Trent Bridge

England vs New Zealand 2022, 2nd Test, Day 3 Live Cricket score: England’s batting will be the focus when Ben Stokes’ men take the field against New Zealand at Trent Bridge on Sunday. After a 2-day Kiwi run-fest conducted by Daryl Mitchell and Tom Blundell, the hosts now need to find ways to cross the 553-run mark.

Mitchell was one of two century-scorers, along with Tom Blundell (106), to help them take command at Trent Bridge, in their massive total of 553 for the Black Caps – their highest ever in England. After a brilliant innings, he dropped two catches at slip in reply to England on the second day for the New Zealand batsman in the second Test on Saturday.

But at the end of the game, it will likely be a pair of crucial drops that brought relief to Alex Lees and Ollie Pope, who may have been on Mitchell’s mind, after a two-hour trial with the English at 90-1 at stumps. after arriving. Tea. They are behind by 463 runs.

By the time Mitchell departed after an hour of tea as the team’s final dismissal after an exhausted waft, New Zealand had surpassed their highest previous Test score on English soil – 551 – at Lord’s in 1973.

Michael Blackwell made 49 on his Test debut before England’s seam attack eventually took the Black Caps’ final four wickets for 40 runs.

England lead the three-match series 1-0 after a five-wicket win last week at Lord’s, but the draw at Trent Bridge is the best the team can hope for.

The hosts got off to a good start for the answer, however, with Pope on 51 and Liege 34. Jack Crawley (4) was the only batsman to be dismissed on the 12th ball of the innings behind Trent Boult.

Crowley could easily have been chased by Lies, who was 12 when Mitchell failed a regulation and put his head in his hands. The catch that could have removed Pope – for 37 – was tough, Mitchell dived to his left and saw the ball hit his fingers and slid off the boundary.

England’s batsmen capitalized, with Pope scoring a reckless fifty in his innings, which already included two sixes and six fours.
