Stokes & Cook Shine for England

Ben Stokes's dazzling 101 and a composed hundred from Alastair Cook reversed the momentum of England's first Test against New Zealand. Stokes's 85-ball ton was the fastest in a Test at Lord's, while Cook batted throughout day four for his unbeaten 153. England moved from 74-2 and a deficit of 60 to 429-6, a lead of 295. That sets up a potentially thrilling final day, with both sides having a chance of a victory that would give them a 1-0 lead in the two-match series.
