England have been a dominating force in the Test series in England. However, despite New Zealand’s below-par display, Daryl Mitchell’s form has been a positive sign for the visitors.
He has accumulated 538 runs from six innings at an average of 107.60. The Kiwi batter has hit three hundreds against the hosts.
In fact, the Kiwi international has matched Sir Don Bradman’s record.
Mitchell scored 109 in the ongoing Test and had earlier hit 108 at Lord’s and 190 at Trent Bridge. His three tons have helped him achieve a landmark that no other overseas player could register in 92 years.
The 31-year-old is the only batter after Sir Don Bradman to slam a ton in each of the first three Tests of a series in the European country. The Aussie great had registered the same in 1930.
