Joe Root fell on the last ball of fourth day’s play between New Zealand and England and that created an impression of the visitors’ approach when it comes to concentration with session drawing to close. The fifth day with backs against the wall, England suffered more of the same. At the stroke of session breaks, England lost key wickets in Moeen Ali, prior to Tea, and Ben Stokes, before Dinner. Later, in the final session, Chris Woakes provided further resistance but couldn’t prolong the inevitable. Stokes and Woakes, with their fifties, tried to force a draw but the first inning 58 all out always had them second in the race. Even with rain wiping away nearly two day’s play, we have a result courtesy that 58 run collapse – barring which we would have likely had a dull draw.
