New Zealand have their task cut out keeping in mind that they are facing England at Lord's. However, as the game progressed, the Kiwis stamped their authority in the game and channelised their aggression in the right way. In doing so, they were head and shoulders above the hosts.

Batting first, Kiwis posted a huge total of 378 in the first innings. Although England bowlers managed to pick up wickets at certain intervals, they were unable to stop Devon Conway. The southpaw turned out to be a nightmare to England bowlers. He was the highlight of New Zealand's batting.

He bludgeoned as many as 22 boundaries and 1 maximum. With that knock, he steered New Zealand to a good total. Let's also not forget how Henry Nicholls showed his resistance and defiance in the middle when the likes of Ross Taylor, Kane Williamson and Tom Latham departed for cheap scores.

Meanwhile, Devon Conway scripted history as he became the first batsman in history to score a double century at Lord's Cricket Ground. This is quite an extraordinary achievement for a batsman who has already made big waves ever since donning the New Zealand outfit.

Meanwhile, Wagner stole the show by hitting a sensational six off Stuart Broad's bowling and that shot was all about timing. The southpaw executed the shot to perfection and the video of which went viral on social media. Wagner scored an unbeaten 25 off 21 balls. He hit 3 boundaries and a six to his name.
