Headingley: 296 runs to lead England to victory in Headingley Test. If they win, they can sweep the series against New Zealand. Here, at 94-2, the sixes from the route are impressive.

The smash reverse scoop on Wagner’s delivery came from the route here. In the Nottingham Test against New Zealand, too, a shattering reverse sweep came from Root’s bat. It was on Southee’s delivery. Root’s six came after a gap of one year in red ball cricket.

Instead of playing cautiously and winning the Test, Root and England are seen as launching a new style of shooting big shots. Fans point out that this is a change that came after New Zealand’s Brendon McCullum took over as coach. England’s batting line-up, including the Ashes, is regaining confidence under McCullum.

England were 183 for two at stumps on the fourth day at Headingley against New Zealand. England now need 93 more runs. Ole Pope with 81 runs and Root with 55 runs are at the crease.
