The Boult show does magic for the Kiwis as English men post their sixth-lowest total ever in 130 years in the Pink Ball Test.
Unfortunately, England’s cricket humiliation in Test cricket is not ending since they were routed 4-0 in the Ashes series Down Under.
Expressing their embarrassment on Twitter, fans wrote,”England cricket should hang their heads in shame,” “Shocking and embarrassing,” “What a humiliating cricket team,” after the team bundled out for just 58 runs in the 1st test played against New Zealand at Eden Park, Auckland on Thursday.
Kevin Pietersen who retired from Test cricket this month expressed his disappointment over England’s dismal show on Twitter, he wrote,”What a fantastic tribute by England! Getting bowled out for my average in the first test following my retirement. Blessed, thanks boys.”
