NZ vs ENG 2018: Jonny Bairstow Confident About England Bowlers Picking Up 10 Wickets
England have kept their hopes alive end their winless winter, as they need to pick ten wickets on the last day of the second Test in Christchurch.
The tourists have set a target of 372 for the Kiwis. The hosts are 42 without loss at stumps on day four.
Meanwhile, Tom Latham is unbeaten on 25, and Jeet Raval is batting on 17 after surviving 23 overs before play was ended 24 overs early on day four.
However, England are looking forward to ending their 12 matches winless run in Tests on away tours with a win in the second Test.
New Zealand, on the other hand, have started well in the second innings and will be looking forward to batting the entire day to draw the match to win the series 1-0.
England batsman-wicketkeeper Jonny Bairstow said there was enough in the pitch to help their bowlers pick up ten wickets on the final day of the match.
“There’s definitely enough in the pitch for us to take the wickets. We’ve beaten the bat consistently. Leachy (spinner Jack Leach) bowled three overs this evening, and there were some chances created there.”
England declared their second innings on 352/9 setting the hosts a target of 372 runs in the fourth innings of the match.
If the rain stays away and light supports play on the final day, the England bowlers will have a minimum of 98 overs to end their 12-match winless streak away from home.
