The England and Wales Cricket Board on Thursday confirmed leg-spinner Matt Parkinson as the concussion replacement for injured left-arm spinner Jack Leach in the ongoing first Test against New Zealand at Lord’s Cricket Ground. Parkinson, who has picked 24 wickets in five matches of County Championship, made his debut in the series opener as a result. Watch him bowl his first delivery at the big stage as Ben Stokes called upon the services of the leg-spinner after Tom Blundell and Daryl Mitchell milked the pacers for a few vital boundaries. Parkison has sent down 6 overs so far and conceded 21 runs at 3.50.
The moment so many have been waiting for 😉
