New Zealand vs England: Kane Williamson makes history as Black Caps set tourists 258 to win second Test | Cricket News
An historic day for Kane Williamson helped New Zealand set England 258 to win the second Test at Wellington’s Basin Reserve.
Ollie Robinson made the breakthrough for England in the eighth over of day four after New Zealand resumed on 202-3, with Henry Nicholls departing for 29 after edging the seamer to Harry Brook in the slips soon after Williamson had become his country’s highest run-scorer in Test cricket.
However, a run-a-ball 54 from Daryl Mitchell before falling to Stuart Broad just before lunch and a century stand for the sixth wicket between the former captain, who kicked on from his record-breaking runs to make his 26th Test century, and Tom Blundell saw the Black Caps surge into a lead.
Williamson’s dismissal for 132 at the hands of Harry Brook’s part-time medium pace precipitated a collapse which saw the hosts all out for 483 on the back of Jack Leach’s 5-157 though, with England set to start the final day on 48-1 in pursuit of their victory target.
