England’s Zak Crawley has pulled off a front-diving stunner, running in from fine-leg, to dismiss New Zealand’s Kyle Jamieson. Ollie Robinson, the debutant bowler, is leaving no stone unturned as he has picked up four wickets now.
New Zealand are collapsing hugely as they have now lost five wickets since the morning, however, Devon Conway is still adamant at one end, nearing his maiden double century.

Earlier, Devon Conway (136*) and Henry Nicholls (46*) began the proceedings of Day 2 at Lord’s. Jimmy Anderson kicked off the day’s play for England. The duo started off well, playing out Anderson’s first over without any risk.
However, since New Zealand had scored 246 runs at 2.86 rpo on Day 1, they were looking to put a big total on the board. Thus, Devon Conway took the initiative of scoring runs and hit three lovely boundaries and brought up his 150. He also became only the third New Zealand player to notch-up a 150 on his Test debut.
In search of a wicket, Joe Root turned to his fastest bowler, Mark Wood and the move worked as Wood employed the short ball ploy against Henry Nicholls and the batsman fell for it, pulling one straight to Ollie Robinson at fine-leg. The wicket-keeper BJ Watling walked in next, but Wood, with the kind of fire he was breathing, was just too good for Watling. Wood managed to make the ball hold its line and took the outside edge of Watling’s bat and Dom Sibley took a sharp catch at slips.
