Absence Of Kyle Jamieson Gave Us An Advantage Against New Zealand; Admits England Captain Ben Stokes

By IANS News June 15, 2022 • 11:44 AM View: 549

England skipper Ben Stokes agreed that New Zealand being a pace bowler short -- Kyle Jamieson could not bowl in the second innings due to serious back issues -- played a big role in momentum shifting in the hosts' favour in the second Test at Trent Bridge.

With Jamieson rule out, it was always going to be a tough ask for the rest of the New Zealand bowlers to decimate a strong England batting, and that is what happened on Tuesday, with Jonny Bairstow scoring a T20-style 136 (92 balls) and Ben Stokes smashing an unbeaten 75 to guide England to a five-wicket win and take a 2-0 lead in the three-Test series.
