Potts reduces New Zealand to 38-3 on day 2 of the first test

LONDON (AP) – Matt Potts continued his remarkable debut for England on Friday, gaining two wickets in the morning session to reduce New Zealand to 38-3 at noon on day 2 of the first test at Lord’s.

Earlier, England recovered with a score of 116-7, after the first day dropped 17 goals, but was quickly thrown out of 141. This gave the hosts a slight advantage in nine series in the first innings.

New Zealand’s Tim Sowti finished 4-55 and his fast bowling partner Trent Boult was 3-21.

James Anderson then struck first in England, leaving Will Young behind Ben Fox by one with a total of five.

The 23-year-old Pots, who took a 4-13 lead on Thursday, received New Zealand captain Kane Williamson’s wicket goal for the second time in the match when he caught him on Johnny Burstowe’s 15 errors.

A quick pot of Potts followed as Tom Latham fell 14, leaving the test match fully balanced. Devon Conway was six not out of the break, while Daryl Mitchell was undefeated by two.
