Joe Root made a great invincible century to masterfully lead England to a glorious five-goal victory over New Zealand on a gloomy fourth morning of Lord’s first Test on Sunday.
The former Root captain became the 14th batsman to withstand a 10,000-run run and finished 115 not out after sharing a sixth goal of 120 with Ben Foakes, but 32 not out of play was also important for England to reach their winning goal of 277.
New Zealand’s seamstresses, who had previously been so strong through the test, found no swing on a cold morning and failed to test the batsmen as the pair took off with little warning after England went on to 216 for five and needed 61 for victory. .
England captain Ben Stokes can celebrate victory in his first attempt at the helm and plans to win in a row when the second of three trials begins at Trent Bridge in Nottingham on Friday.
