Tim Southee sealed his second spot on the Lord’s Honours Boards with a five-wicket haul against England on the fourth day of the 2021 Test between the hosts and New Zealand.
Southee, who took ten wickets in the 2013 Test between the sides at Lord’s, claimed England debutant Ollie Robinson has his fifth victim as Kyle Jamieson held on to a catch in the deep.
He had earlier removed Zak Crawley and both Dan Lawrence and James Bracey without scoring, as New Zealand sniffed the chance of a possible victory, which had been left unlikely due to the third day being completely lost to rain.
Southee’s analysis of 6 for 43 were the standout figures as New Zealand bowled England out for 275, with centurion Rory Burns becoming his sixth and final scalp of the innings.
The seamer had recently moved past 300 Test wickets and sits third in the all-time New Zealand Test wicket-taking list.
