Former Test captain Root sewed a 90-run stand with Stokes, and when the stumps came on the third day, he made an unbroken 57-run partnership with wicketkeeper Ben Fox, enough to leave Brad with a good feeling for Root’s sure-footed batting. Ahead of the fourth-day game.

Joe Root is one of the quietest players and the best batsmen in England so I have a really good feel for things. He’s a situation player, isn’t he? I think it really suits him when he sets up a situation for him and he aims to chase. Don’t get me wrong, he played some amazing shots in the first innings of Test matches.

“But for me, he is at his best when the game is on the line – and that is always a sign of a world-class player. That doesn’t mean he is alone. This morning is when we need it and we have plenty of time to show our characters.

Brad played a big role in turning the match in favor of England, and New Zealand were all out for 251/5 to 285. In his third over, Brad dismissed Daryl Mitchell for 108, then run out for Colin de Grandhomme Duck before Kyle Jameson clean-bowled in the same over.

“Personally, my performance was good enough for me to help the team get back into this topsy-turvy test. Having said that, I would like to give my heart and soul to playing for England this summer, even though I am in my mid-30s with 15 years of experience.

“Going to bed on Friday night, we felt the game could be a little off, so it gave us a fighting chance to pull off 49 runs with six wickets.
