Jonny Bairstow and Jamie Overton added a match-defining 241 for the sixth wicket before the latter missed his ton by three runs. Jonny gave him a pat as he walks back to the pavilion. The Headingley crowd rises to give him a standing ovation as well. This has been a fantastic knock from Overton but he falls tantalizingly short of a century unfortunately. Trent Boult has finally struck for New Zealand to end this frustrating partnership. These two have entwined to turn the game around after England were reduced to 55/6.
Hold your head high, Jamie.
A sensational innings and a record-breaking partnership when we needed it most.
Those three runs don't change any of that.June 25, 2022
