Eng vs NZ: Players pay unique tribute to Aussie legend Shane Warne in Lord’s Test – WATCH


England and New Zealand faced off in the opening three-game Test series at London’s iconic Lord’s Cricket Ground on Thursday night (June 2). On Day 1 of the First Test, after Kane Williamson & Co. opted to strike first, players from both teams paid their respects to late Australian spin magician Shane Warne.

Play was paused for 23 seconds after 23 overs had been completed, as a unique tribute to Warne (who wore the No.23 shirt for Australia). Players paused the game with the giant screen showing video of the Australian legend. Fans also joined in and paid tribute to the late cricketer, who died of a heart attack while on holiday in Thailand in early March. Here is the video when the procedure stopped a bit in remembrance of Warne:

Speaking of the first Test, nothing has clicked so far for the visitors as Ben Stokes-led England dismissed the Black Caps for a paltry 132 from 40 overs, with debutant Matty Potts and James Anderson back with four-wicket transport each.

Trent Boult & Co. therefore have a huge task ahead of them to prevent the home side from taking a huge lead in the first test at Lord’s.
