Old 'accident' with New Zealand, after years a match-like situation with Pakistan happened in the second test against England
The second test match between England and New Zealand is going on. Both the teams are face to face in Edgbaston. In this last Test match of the series, hosts England are batting first and in doing so have made a solid start to their first innings. For example, a good partnership has been seen between their openers. However, this is not a matter of tension for New Zealand. Rather, his tension has emerged due to a year-old incident happening again.
In the second Test against England, the same incident has happened again with New Zealand, which happened in the match played against Pakistan decades ago. The strings of this incident are related to a match connected 11 years ago, when the Pakistan team was on a tour of New Zealand. There was a match in Napier and the incident which happened with New Zealand has now happened with England in Edgbaston Test.
New Zealand Bin Kane, Saudi and Walting
Through this incident, we are talking about 3 players from New Zealand, who are out of the second Test. Kane Williamson, BJ Walting and Tim Southee. In these, Southee has been rested, while Williamson and Walting have been hit by injuries, due to which they have been kept out of the second Test. Actually, this has happened with New Zealand after 11 years, when she is playing a Test with these three star players.
last played against pakistan without all three
New Zealand last played a Test without Williamson, Walting and Southee in 2009. That match started in Napier from 3 December that year, which was inconclusive. Now if the Edgbaston Test also remains inconclusive, then New Zealand will have to share the series crown with England.
The first match of the Test series was played at Lord's. The test match played between the two teams on the Mecca of cricket was a draw. In such a situation, the battle of Edgbaston has become decisive and important, which both the teams will try their best to win.
