England successfully chased down the 299-run target set by New Zealand on the 5th day of the second Test at Trent Bridge Nottingham.

With this win, England have gained a 2-0 lead in the three match Test series against the World Test Championship winner New Zealand, thanks to Johnny Bairstow’s thrilling 136 off 92 and similarly belligerent 75* from England’s new skipper Ben Stokes.

As soon as Jonny Bairstow demolished New Zealand bowling in tough chase of 299 runs, Tweeple have started praising the team and the contribution Jonny Bairstow and Ben Stokes in this historic win against New Zealand.

The performance drew great appreciation from the cricket fraternity on Twtitter.

England’s new skipper Ben Stokes had won the toss and chosen to bowl first. In response, New Zealand put a mammoth total of 553 runs on the board with help of Daryl Mitchell 190 and Tom Blundell’s 106 in Nottingham.

In reply, England were very good in their first outing as Joe Root continued his golden run with the bat, scoring 176 while Ollie Pope hit his first Test century at the new no.3 spot. England reached on 539 with small cameos of skipper Ben Stokes and Ben Foakes.

For New Zealand, Trent Boult registered another five wicket haul while James Anderson had completed his 650 wickets in Tests.

New Zealand did well in the second innings of the match and managed to make 286 runs in their second innings after fifties from Will Young (56), Devon Conway (52) and Daryl Mitchell (62*). Adding 14 leads from the first innings, New Zealand has given the target of 298 runs.

When England came out to chase the tough target, the team were at 93/4 and expecting a defeat but then Jonny Bairstow and Ben Stokes came together.

Bairstow slammed 7 sixes and 14 fours in his 136-run knock while Stokes played a captain’s knock, hitting 75* as England achieved the target with 5 wickets to spare.

Given England’s modest approach in Test cricket off late, not many would have expected them to go for the win, as they already had a 1-0 lead in the series. But this is a new England Test team, led by Ben Stokes and managed by head coach Brendon McCullum.

Push for red-ball cricket: BCCI to hike Test match fee

The BCCI currently pays INR 15 lakh for a Test, INR 6 lakh for an ODI, and INR 3 lakh for a T20I.

The Board of Control For Cricket in India (BCCI) intends to increase the payments for Test matches as a result of players’ increasing preference for playing in the Indian Premier League (IPL) over the longest format of the game, according to a report.

The fee structure has been revised by the cricket board in response to Ishan Kishan’s withdrawal from domestic cricket. The Indian wicketkeeper batter has been working with the Pandya brothers in Barodra, Gujarat, ahead of the IPL, which is scheduled to begin later this month, despite the management’s requests for him to play domestic cricket.

According to a source, BCCI is currently deciding how much more money will be given to a player who participates in every Test series for the whole of the season.

For instance, in addition to the yearly retainer contract, an individual should receive additional benefits if they participate in every Test series over a given year. This is to guarantee that more players show up for red-ball cricket. According to a source, this would be an additional perk of playing Test cricket.

The BCCI currently pays INR 15 lakh for a Test, INR 6 lakh for an ODI, and INR 3 lakh for a T20I.

According to a report, if the new salary structure is approved, it will be implemented after the current IPL season.

However, Rohit Sharma-led team India was engaged in a five-match Test series against England, which the home team had already won yesterday. Prominent players such as Mohammed Shami and Virat Kohli have missed this series due to injury and personal reasons, respectively.

Meanwhile, the team will play in the Indian Premier League (IPL) following this Test series, and after the end of the cash-rich league, Team India will head to the United States for the upcoming T20 World Cup.

Since sustaining an ankle injury during India’s ICC Cricket World Cup group stage match against Bangladesh in October of last year, Pandya has not participated in any international cricket matches for the team India.

Pandya was not present for the home series of five T20 internationals against Australia, nor for the three ODI and three T20I matches that made up the journey to South Africa. In Pandya’s absence, top-ranked T20I batsman Suryakumar Yadav donned the role of captain.

Ahead of the upcoming Indian Premier League (IPL) season, Pandya was moved from the Gujarat Titans (GT) to the Mumbai Indians (MI) in November last year.

With players like Tilak Verma, Nehal Wadhera, Akash Madhwal, and Piyush Chawla, Pandya is in charge of a superstar-studded lineup. With Pandya leading the team, these players will play for MI.

However, Rohit Sharma will be captaining the team in the upcoming T20 World Cup, which is scheduled to take place in the USA and the West Indies in June, with the intention of putting an end to India’s ICC trophy drought.

Meanwhile, Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) secretary Jay Shah earlier announced that Rohit Sharma will lead the Men in Blue in the ICC T20 World Cup. He also voiced hope that Team India will emerge victorious in the T20 cricket tournament and break their ten-year trophy drought under Rohit Sharma’s captaincy.
