Potts Leads Late Charge! | Highlights | England v New Zealand – Day 3 | 3rd LV= Insurance Test 2022

Jonny Bairstow and debutant Jamie Overton resumed their mesmerising 7th wicket stand for England on day three of England’s 3rd and final test match with the touring New Zealand.

Bairstow passed 150 while Overton, more commonly known as a medium pace bowler, came agonisingly close to a century on his first ever test match, falling for 97. Bairstow patted his partner on the back, no doubt telling him his magnificent contribution was still extremely worthwhile, despite not quite making three figures.

A Cameo from Stuart Broad who made a lightning fast 42 would see England finish with 360 all out – a lead of 31 runs which few would have believed possible, when they had been 55 for 6 wickets a day ago, and looking all at sea.

England would end the day in the ascendency, as a late flurry of wickets reduced New Zealand, who had started very well, with a 76 from Latham and 48 from Williamson, who have both been lacking form this tour. Both will be disappointed not to have converted good starts into bigger scores, though, as England seemed to make breakthroughs every time there was a break: striking after tea, and after a rain delay.

Stokes will be pleased that his bowling changes seemed to frequently yield results. England, on the whole, will be happy that recent additions Potts – who bowled extremely economically and has deserved more wickets this test – and Overton, have both contributed a lot to this test match. Their future, under Stokes and McCullum, is looking decidedly more assured than it had been under Root’s captaincy.
