On September 10, Sunday, during the second ODI of the four-match series at the Rose Bowl in Southampton, Mitchell Santner pulled off a spectacular one-handed catch to get Jonny Bairstow dismissed early in his innings. On his return to the starting XI of New Zealand, Trent Boult, who is also playing his 100th ODI, picked up three quick wickets to put England firmly on the back foot.

Earlier, after winning the toss, Tom Latham, the captain of New Zealand, decided to put England into bat. His decision was vindicated by the left-arm fast bowler, who got rid of the dangerous Jonny Bairstow for 6 off 8 balls. The right-handed English opener was trying to flick the ball across the line but only managed to find Mitchell Santner at the cover region, who leapt in the air to grab hold of the ball on the full, to send the batter back to the pavilion.

Just two balls later, Trent Boult trapped Joe Root in front of the stumps, to inflict a rare score of zero on the English batting superstar. In the third over of his spell, the 34-year-old made Ben Stokes (1 off 10) spoon the ball straight to the mid-off fielder Tim Southee, while charging down the track to loft the ball bowled around middle and off stump.

Matt Henry joined the wicket taking party for New Zealand, on the second ball of the eight over, accounting for Harry Brook, who scored only 2 runs off 12 balls. The makeshift opener for England was trying to flick the length ball on middle and leg, but ballooning it towards mid-on, where Finn Allen took the catch, close to his chest.

As of this writing, England were 46-4 after the first 10 overs, with the captain Jos Buttler (24 off 17) and Moeen Ali (12 off 11), digging in, with an aim to resurrect the team’s innings.
