Joe Root & Harry Brook's unbeaten Hundreds helped the Visitors to end day 1 on 315/3

 

The first day of the second test match between New Zealand and England ended on a high for the Visitors. After winning the toss in this match, the Hosts decided to bowl first and as soon as they came, Tim Southee-led Black Caps dominated the first 10 overs of the match as the side cleaned up 3 quick English wickets.

However, later the five-test-old blasted batter Harry Brook came and he made everyone his admirer with his batting and made the batting look so easy on the swinging Kiwis condition. Brook has noted his career-best unbeaten 184 runs and is close to a double century. With his belligerent innings, the right-handed batter took a new record in his name and has left behind India's legendary cricketer Vinod Kambli.

The young English batter Brook is in dangerous form nowadays and he has shown his bullying class to the Hosts on Day 1. He is making everyone his fan with his art and talent. In the last 9 innings of Test cricket, Brook has scored 4 centuries and 3 half-centuries. After scoring 184 runs in the ongoing test match, he also has completed 800 runs within no time in test cricket and broke multiple records as well. With this, Brook has become the fastest batter to score 800 runs in Test cricket. He achieved this feat in his 9th innings.

Yorkshire Club batter Brook has broken the record of former India player Vinod Kambli. In fact, before this, Kambli had the record of scoring the most runs in 9 innings of a Test, who had 798 runs, while Brook scored more than 800 runs. If Brook touches the figure of 200, he will become the 5th English player to do so against New Zealand.

On the other hand, out of form for a while, the former English skipper Joe Root also joined the party with Brook and completed his 29th test ton and ended his test ton drought. Both the batters shared a commanding partnership of unbeaten 294(350) before rain interrupted the first day's play, where Root 101 and Brook scored 184 not out as the Visitors ended day 1 on 315/3 after 65 overs.

Brook is not being called the future of English cricket just like that. Rather his international cricket figures are his testimony. The English man has played 6 Test matches so far, in which he has scored 807 runs at an average of 100.88. During this, Brook has hit 20 sixes and 101 fours. Brook has technique as well as great batting skills. In which he has no competition. At present, the fans are waiting for his first double century.
