Watch the Huge Six as England defeats New Zealand 3-0. Jonny Bairstow
Thus, with seven wickets still in play on Day 5, England successfully reached the total with the help of Joe Root’s (86) and Jonny Bairstow’s (71) unbroken scores.
The host nation won all three games owing to a big six hit by Jonny Bairstow, which was fitting given the aggressive nature of the Test series between England and New Zealand. England defeated New Zealand by seven wickets in the third Test to take the series 3-0. Thus, with seven wickets still in play on Day 5, England successfully reached the total with the help of Joe Root’s (86) and Jonny Bairstow’s (71) unbroken scores.
On the first pitch of the 55th over, Bairstow smacked a magnificent six off the bowling of Michael Bracewell. The ball was tossed up and then smashed over cow corner by Bairstow. Root and Bairstow hugged in the middle after that shot effectively gave them the match.
There was only one way to win it really wasn’t there? 😃

Rain wiped out the morning session, giving England, who had been 183-2 overnight, a mere 78 overs to score the final 113 runs they would need to win.
However, they only needed 15.2 overs, and after a little over an hour of play on Monday, Bairstow ended the game with a six over deep midwicket off spinner Michael Bracewell.
Thus, England’s victory over New Zealand handed them a 3-0 victory in their maiden series under new captain Ben Stokes and red-ball coach Brendon McCullum, a former captain of New Zealand.
