In case you missed it, the England cricket team reached a new low as they were bowled out for 58 in the first innings of the first Test against New Zealand at Eden Park in Auckland.

After winning the toss and opting to bowl first, Trent Boult and Tim Southee ripped through the English batting line-up. Boult picked up six wickets while Southee picked up four.

At one point, it looked like England would be bowled out for their lowest total ever, however, Craig Overton's 33 run knock helped England reach 58. He put on a 31 run partnership with James Anderson, which was England's highest partnership.

New Zealand did not do anything wrong throughout the first innings. At 27-8, Stuart Broad and Overton were looking to counter-attack and get some runs on the board, but Kane Williamson had other ideas in mind.

In the 16th over of the innings, Southee bowled a full-ish delivery to Broad, who poked at it. He ended up edging the ball, which flew to the left of Williamson, who was standing at gully.

He threw himself to his left, parallel with the ground, stuck one hand out to catch the ball and with that catch, he rubbed salt in England's wound and the Kiwis were looking to bowl them out under 30.

However, Overton spared England some blushes as they crossed the 50 run mark later on in the innings.

In reply, New Zealand lost Jeet Raval early on in the innings. However, Kane Williamson and Tom Latham put on an 84 run partnership for the second wicket, thus taking a lead as well.

Williamson went on to score a half-century and is currently batting on 67 runs. Ross Taylor is at the crease as well, batting on 11.
