ENG vs NZ live 1st Test Day 3: Rain plays spoilsport as Day 3 washed out
ENG vs NZ live 1st Test Day 3: Rain plays spoilsport as Day 3 washed out without a ball being bowled- Rain played spoilsport in an exciting contest between England and New Zealand as Day 3 of the 1st Test was abandoned without a ball being bowled. Intermittent rain and drizzles continued the whole day and the wet outfield meant the day had to be called off. Earlier debutant Devon Conway’s double hundred helped Kiwis post 378 while Joe Root’s England were 112/2 at Day 2 stumps.
Thank you for your patience but play has been abandoned for the day ☔️

Joe Root and Rory Burns will resume for England after finishing Day 2 on 111/2 and trail New Zealand by 267 runs in the first innings of the first Test after Devon Conway’s double ton took the game away from the home side on Thursday.
New Zealand were bowled out for 378 after lunch as England’s fast bowlers cleaned up the middle order and tail but they were left frustrated by number 11 Neil Wagner (25 not out) who helped Conway set his record score.
