Nor was his old teammate, Stewart Broad, who hit the last on the next when Devon Conway, the man with 306 assists in 76.50 hits the run in the only two Tests of his career. Brod Conway tempted one to go outside and found the advantage of taking James Prause behind logs where the visitors only needed 32 more for victory.

Stone entered the attack in the tenth minute and hit the sixth ball. After Will Young was punished for the fence on a larger scale, Stone had sliced ​​Young to the stumps with only five runs.

Reserve Captain Tom Latham sealed the score in the next round with a four-hit through a square leg off Mark Wood followed by two more balls later through a third man.
