ENG vs NZ Test Series: Former England batsman Kevin Pietersen on Friday said he saw a lot of good things in the batting order despite the hosts being all out for 141 in the first Test against New Zealand at Lord’s. After bowling out New Zealand for 132, England were reduced to 141 in the first innings.

Pietersen praises England

Pietersen said about the first day’s game on Sky Sports, ‘England’s batting was not good. The bowling was very good. Look in form James Anderson and use line and length properly. Talking about England’s batting under the captaincy of head coach Brendon McCullum and Ben Stokes, Pietersen said that things will gradually improve, which is visible.

England’s performance was very bad

Pietersen said, ‘I am seeing a lot of good things in the team. But I think it is a game of confidence now. When you lose a test match because of batting, no matter how much you talk about a fresh start under Ben Stokes, these players like Liege, Crawley, Pope all know how much pressure they are under. Huh.’

These giants criticized

But former England batsmen Alastair Cook and Michael Vaughan criticized England for being all out too soon. Cook said on the BBC Test Match Special, “What’s disappointing for me as an England supporter is that every time this batting lineup comes under pressure, they can’t stand it.” They were not under that pressure yesterday as well, they worked hard to reach 59/0. But after that, as soon as Crowley was out, he went on getting out one after the other.
