Day 5

ENG vs NZ 1st Test Day 5 Live Score: With over 70 overs to go on Day 5 of the Lord’s Test New Zealand skipper, Kane Williamson decided to declare the innings. England now need 273 runs to win the Test and take the lead of 1-0 in the series.

England debutant Ollie Robinson picked three wickets as the rain stops the play on Day 5 of the second innings of the Lord’s Test against New Zealand on Sunday. On the other hand veteran batsman, Ross Taylor was playing counter-attacking innings to help visitors score quickly however he was removed by Mark Wood.

Rain washout the Day 3 of the Lord’s Test otherwise the game would have been perfectly poised for a thrilling finish on Day 5. However, all three results are possible on D-Day. As of now, it is most likely that the game will end in a draw but an aggressive captaincy decision by Kane Williamson will change the course of the game in no time. New Zealand is at the top with 165 for 2 in the second innings but they are not in the winning position. On the other hand, England need to first take the remaining 8 wickets and then chase down whatever is the target.
