T.G. Southee

10-108

v EnglandBack to boards

Tim Southee became just the second New Zealander to take a ten-wicket haul at Lord’s when he finished their 2013 Test v England with figures of 10-108.

With England electing to bat first, Southee ripped through the hosts’ middle-order in the first innings, taking the wickets of Joe Root, Jonny Bairstow, Matt Prior and Stuart Broad, before removing Steven Finn to finish the first innings with four wickets to his name. 

England finished their first innings with a score of 232 all out, but New Zealand’s failure to gain a lead in their innings brought Southee and his team-mates back to the field. 

The talented all-rounder responded in fine style, taking advantage of England’s middle-order again with Root, Bairstow, Prior and Finn all being dismissed by Southee for the second time in the match.

 Southee brought up his first five-wicket haul at Lord’s with the wicket of Graeme Swann before dismissing Ian Bell for six to claim ten wickets in the match and thus, two spots on the Honours Boards.

Unfortunately for New Zealand, a devastating spell of bowling by James Anderson and Stuart Broad – who took seven wickets – caused the tourists to finish their second innings 68 all out, losing the match by 170 runs.
