Tim Southee Joined The Elite List With Former West-Indian Skipper Richie Richardson, Check Full Report

Whoever says test cricket is boring, then they must watch the thriller test match between England and New Zealand. And this test match also shuts the mouth of critics who have ever suggested making a test match of four days instead of five days. Test cricket’s excitement never ends because the class of the real cricketer is shown in test cricket, and that’s why test cricket always has a special place in cricket.

New Zealand won a thrilling one-run victory in the second Test against England in Wellington. This was only the second time in the history of cricket that this margin decided a Test. Above all, New Zealand became only the fourth team to win a Test after a follow-on.

The last one-run win was by West Indies against Australia in Adelaide in 1993. When Craig McDermott was the last player to be caught behind the wicket by Courtney Walsh. A similar similarity was seen in Wellington after 30 years when Blundell took the catch of English batter James Anderson on the delivery of Neil Wagner.

With this victory, Kiwi skipper Tim Southee joined the elite list with former west-Indian skipper Richie Richardson to win the test match by just one run. This is one of the lowest victories in test cricket. After 30 years, history repeated itself when the Kiwi stopped the victorious march of the English in the home. The Baz-ball strategy of skipper Ben Stokes and head coach Brendon McCullum didn’t work against the Blackcaps, and they lost the match. Head coach Brendon McCullum also belongs from New Zealand and lost the match against his home team.
