The independent voice of cricket


Listen: Root shows class, Pope shows potential

by Wisden Staff 11 minute read

Listen to the Wisden Cricket Daily Podcast covering day four of the second Test between England and New Zealand in Hamilton.

Joe Root hit his highest score as captain as England put in their most encouraging performance with the bat in some time. It may end up not being enough for victory, but the performances of Root and Ollie Pope – who hit his first Test half-century – will give England optimism going forward. Yas Rana talks to Lawrence Booth on the phone from Hamilton and Taha Hashim in London about the biggest talking points of the day.
