Stokes stars as England snatch unlikely win: 1st Test, Day 5 (Lords)

Ben Stokes led the way as England produced a magnificent final-day bowling display to win the first Test against New Zealand by 124 runs.

The 124 run completed a remarkable turnaround for Alastair Cook (162) after England crumbled to 30-4 on day one and conceded a 134-run first-innings deficit.

England 389 (Root 98, Stokes 92, Boult 4-79, Henry 4-93) and 478 (Cook 162, Stokes 101, Root 84, Boult 5-85) beat New Zealand 523 (Williamson 132, Guptill 70) and 215 (Anderson 67, Watling 59, Stokes 3-38, Broad 3-50) by 124 runs.
