BBC Sport - England v New Zealand: Joe Root confident of 'special' run chase
Root confident of 'special' run chase
- From the section Cricket
Joe Root says England have "an opportunity to do something special" as they chase 455 to beat New Zealand in the second Test at Headingley.
A draw would be enough to secure a 1-0 series win for England, who reached 44-0 before rain ended play shortly after lunch on day four.
If England reach their target, it would be the highest successful fourth-innings chase in Test history, beating the 418-7 that West Indies made against Australia in Antigua in 2003.
