New Zealand skipper Kane Williamson dangled the carrot in front of England when he set the hosts a target of 273 on the final day in front of 7,000 fans. However, while the BlackCaps tried their level best to make something of the game, Dominic Sibley’s knock ensured England came home with a draw.
Really sad to watch this game at Lords!
Conway just nailed the show!

Intent of not chasing 3+ RR score & play safe for the draws is so 1980s. this needs to change.— M-Hox (@MandyHox) June 6, 2021
Pretty sure the match would have been way more interesting had Buttler, Stokes, Woakes been there at crease. #ENGvNZ
It was not all a match to see it as draw!

Eng didn't go for victory in the 4th innings is quite surprising, but very well played @DomSibley 👏

No sin to draw a test match be it in the era of modern day cricket.— Harsh (@Imhc16) June 6, 2021
Sibley and Root were special to save it for England and Burns in the 1st innings.
Ollie Robinson for England and Devon Conway for New Zealand precious !!!!! #ENGvNZ #ENGvNZL #ENGvsNZ
England should offer a refund for cutting that match short. Honestly, accepting a draw! Pathetic— Y (@MQUTins) June 6, 2021
