Got a wicket instead of a boundary

Seeing the ball coming towards him, Alex Les, standing at mid-off, did not make any mistake in taking the catch.

Nicholas returned in despair

The full video has been posted on the official Twitter handle of the England Cricket Board. Anyone can hold their forehead by watching the video. At that time no one understood anything. Bowler Leach himself seemed surprised. Captain Ben Stokes also could not believe that the ball which was going for the boundary, got the wicket on it. The umpires were also stunned. Nicholas had no choice but to return with his head bowed.

Will be expected to return on the second day

Kane Williamson, who was looking in good rhythm, was also dismissed after scoring 31 runs. When Nicholls got out, it was the fifth blow for the team. But after that the Kiwis made a good partnership.
