Mitchell Santer Takes A Stunner
After the heroics knock from the left-handed batsman, he continues his performance with bowl too and took three wickets. Santner did not stop here, and thereafter he helped the team with a stunning catch at the covers. It all happened during second innings of England’s batting when Neil Wagner was bowling. New Zealand pacer Neil Wagner came around the wicket to Pope and bowled a poor delivery. It was a low full-toss and Pope could have hit it anywhere. However, the England batsman, who reached for the ball, played a shocking shot towards short cover. At first, it looked like the ball would evade Mitchell Santner and run towards the boundary.
