England seamer Sam Curran states Kane Williamson daily two of the first Tests wicket is the most international scalp to date.
The left-armer disregarded the New Zealand captain for 51 as the Kiwis closed on 144-4 to track by 209, with a delivery which reared up off a pitch that was docile.
REPORT | SCORECARD | HOW IT HAPPENED
Curran – who trapped Tom Latham lbw for eight – had been pinned leg by Tim Southee for a golden duck out and disclosed he had been excited to atone using the ball.
Asked whether Williamsons wicket was his finest however, the Surrey seamer stated:Since it is so recent, it likely is. I am sure there are other moments but off the top of my mind [I can not think of any].
He is a world-class player so that its wonderful to say that Ive got him out, but the principal thing is that we have got their very best player out and now we get into the middle purchase.
We are pretty pleased with the way the day ended. Having a few more rolls in the early hours, the wicket could begin being a bit irregular.
Fingers crossed that will satisfy us and it gets worse as the game goes on because, most likely, we are going to be filming last.
We clearly wish to be batting the moment we can and get a large, big lead. Its going to be an exciting match.
Curran confessed to beingdown a bit after his duck – which came amid England losing four wickets for 18 runs – but was then decided to contribute to a pitch not suited for his style of bowling.
There were several players sayinglets get up with this since I had been a bit down but I believe thats only natural. I ended the afternoon a good deal more happy than I had been at 12.30pm! Additional the 21-year-old.
I only wish to donate with ball and bat – I couldnt get any runs but I still can finally contribute with a few wickets in the first innings.
Im a really competitive person, therefore I like to become in the battle even on a wicket which might not suit me or when I perform bowling thats putting me under stress.
If youre only going to sit back and allow them to do things against you, I believe I wont triumph.
