Kevin Pietersen Drops Judgment On England Batting Collapse vs NZ in 1st Test

In the first Test (ENG vs NZ 1st) between England and New Zealand, bowlers have dominated so far. After the fall of 17 wickets on the very first day of the match, the pitch of Lord’s Test continued to be trouble for the batsmen. England themselves were bundled out for 141 runs after New Zealand were bundled out for 132 runs in their first innings. Even after this, former England batsman Kevin Pietersen is not tired of praising his team. Pietersen has said that he has seen a lot of good things in the batting order despite the hosts being all out for 141 runs.

Talking on Sky Sports, Pietersen said, ‘England’s batting was not good. But the bowling was very good. Jimmy (James Anderson) looks to be in form and he uses line and length very well. I am seeing a lot of good things in the team. I think it’s 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, Crowley, Pope all know how much pressure they are under .’

However, former captains Alastair Cook and Michael Vaughan have slammed England for making low scores. The England team had once scored 59 runs without any loss. But after that she was bundled out for 141 runs.
