A full house at Trent Bridge in Nottingham were treated to a jaw-dropping display on the final day of the second Test between England and New Zealand. Jonny Bairstow played one of his finest knocks, cracking a sensational quickfire century to propel his side to an unforgettable victory.

Bairstow led the chase of 299 by smashing Black Caps bowlers all around the ground. The right-handed batter smacked 136 off just 92 deliveries, which included 14 fours and seven sixes. Bairstow, along with captain Ben Stokes formed a match-winning 179-run partnership for the fifth wicket after England were reduced to 93/4 in 26 overs.

The Yorkshire batter was removed eventually by Trent Boult, but the damage was already done as the hosts needed only 27 runs to win the contest. Stokes (75 not out) and Ben Foakes (12 not out) took their side home inside 50 overs to mark the highest successful Test chase at Trent Bridge.

Brief Score:

England 539 (Joe Root 176, Oliie Pope 145, Alex Lees 67, Ben Foakes 56, Trent Boult 5/106) and 299/5 (Jonny Bairstow 136, Ben Stokes 75*, Alex Lees 44) beat New Zealand 553 (Daryll Mitchell 190, Tom Blundell 106, James Anderson 3/62) and 284 (Daryll Mitchell 62*, Will Young 56, Devon Conway 52, Stuart Broad 3/70) by five wickets.
