Bazball has evolved into a method of playing Test cricket rather than just a word, which has unquestionably benefited England. The dominant English team, led by Ben Stokes, has won 10 of its last 11 Test matches and totally changed the way the game’s longest format is played. Oddly, England has outperformed every opponent in both home and road matches.
In the current second Test match, which is taking place at Basin Reserve in Wellington, Tim Southee’s New Zealand team is facing off against the formidable English team. It was a terrible choice for the Kiwis to choose to bowl first after winning the coin. Joe Root and Harry Brook both scored magnificent centuries as the England cricket team finished the first day of play on 315/3. On 184 runs, Brook is still undefeated, and he appears poised to reach a significant total.

Harry Brook has become the first player in Test cricket history to make 800 runs in his first nine Test innings thanks to his fireworks at Basin Reserve, Wellington. In his tenure to date, Brook has faced 812 pitches and scored a total of 807 runs. The 24-year-old has played 9 innings in 6 Test matches, averaging 100.88 runs per session. His career strike average is 99.38, and this was Brook’s fourth Test century. Brook has struck 101 boundaries and 20 sixes in his brief career.
Brook, regarded as England’s future star, rose to prominence following his outstanding performances in the 2018 U-19 World Cup. Brook made his Test debut against South Africa at the Kennington Oval on September 8, 2022, and he has never looked back since.
