(Video) Joe Root’s backfoot punch is a sight to behold

Joe Root couldn’t contribute much to the scoreboard as England finished Day 1 in a precarious position at 116/7 but he did show his class during the short stay with a delectable backfoot punch. On a day that saw 17 wickets fall, that honours stood shared as New Zealand put in a similarly incisive performance with the ball after they were blown away by Matthew Potts and James Anderson with just 132 runs on the board.

Brief Scores: New Zealand 132 (Colin de Grandhomme 42*; Matthew Potts 4-13, James Aderson 4-66) lead England 116/7 (Zak Crawley 43; Trent Boult 2-15) by 16 runs
