England New Zealand 2nd Test Day 4, Live Cricket Score & Updates:

Good line to Latham early on from James Anderson. Latham, who has captained so well in Williamson’s absence, will want to be there in 38 runs time to guide NZ home. Anderson, as true to his outstanding test career, will just want to give absolutely nothing away & take wickets.

First ball and he is out! Caught by Tom Blundell!! Well, well, well! One ball, just one ball is all it needed for Boult to wrap this up. Short of length delivery angled across the right hander, Stone cannot help but have a nibble at that, the ball kisses the shoulder of the bat and carries at a nice height for Blundell. New Zealand need 38 runs to win the series.

So on Day 3 of the Edgbaston Test saw New Zealand at the cusp of a historic victory! With 1 wicket in hand, England lead by just 37. The hosts have been unbeaten in the Test series at home since 2014. Good momentum for Kiwis ahead of the WTC final!! Stay tuned as we build up to live action.

SQUAD:

England: Rory Burns, Dom Sibley, Zak Crawley, Joe Root (captain), Ollie Pope, Dan Lawrence, James Bracey, Mark Wood, Olly Stone, Stuart Broad, Jimmy Anderson.
