Rain cuts short day 4 of Headingley Test

Jun 1, 2015 | Cricket, Sports | 0 comments

The rain put a damper on the fourth day’s play in Leeds; this delayed New Zealand’s pursuit of England’s ten wickets as the second Test continues at Headingley. New Zealand declared their second innings on 454/8, with a 5th wicket stand of 121 between BJ Watling 120 and captain Brendon McCullum 55. Other scores on the board: Martin Guptill 70, Mark Craig 58 not out, Ross Taylor 48, and Tim Southee 40. Bowling for England, Mark Wood took 3/97 from 19, Jimmy Anderson 2/96 from 23, and Stuart Broad 2/94 from 16. Adam Lyth and captain Alastair Cook began England’s reply, but the heavy downpour forced them to close day 4 early on 44 without loss, with Lyth on 24, and the captain on 18. England require another 411 runs for victory.
