Jun 2, 2015 | Cricket, Sports | 0 comments

An enthusiastic New Zealand levelled the 2-match series 1 apiece, after they crushed England by 199 runs at the second Test at Headingley in Leeds. Set 455 for victory, England trusted the openers, Adam Lyth and captain Alastair Cook, to steady the ship at 44 without loss in the second innings, with Lyth on 24 and Cook on 18. However, Lyth never got past his 24 and Cook was dismissed for 56, and that’s when the onslaught began. Despite 73 from wicketkeeper Jos Buttler, the hosts collapsed to 255 all out. Bowling for New Zealand, Kane Williamson took 3/15 from 7, Mark Craig 3/73 from 31.5, and Trent Boult 2/61 from 23. BJ Watling of the Kiwis was named player of the match for his second-innings century, and there are two players of the series: New Zealand fast bowler Trent Boult and England skipper Alastair Cook.
