Playing before fans for the first time since the outbreak of COVID-19, New Zealand were under siege for much of the clash at RCD Stadium but kept a clean sheet until a goalkeeper mistake paved the way for Gianluca Lapadula's 69th minute winner."That’s the first time since November 2019 that we’ve actually played in front of a crowd, believe it or not," Hay told reporters.New Zealand’s seamers, previously so potent through the test, found no swing on a cold morning and failed to test the batsmen as the pair picked off the runs with little alarm after England had resumed at 216 for five, needing 61 for victory."So the opportunity to play in a stadium like this, with such a vocal, loud crowd, where we couldn’t communicate clearly with each other, we learnt a hell of a lot.It might have been five wickets when Stokes, on his 31st birthday, was bowled by Colin de Grandhomme for one run only to be called back to the crease after a belated no ball call from the third umpire in a let-off that was greeted by an approving roar from the partisan crowd."I think, as the game progressed, we got over that little bit of fear factor around just playing our natural game.Source: Reuters." Hay's team, ranked 101st in the world, rode their luck as 22nd-ranked Peru hit the crossbar early and peppered their goal in front of a heaving crowd of 32,000.Saturday’s play started 30 minutes later because of rain but the drama was immediate as Mitchell hit three runs off his first ball faced to go to his second test century in the first over.

But the luck ran out when the ball was passed back to goalkeeper Oli Sail who coughed it up with a heavy touch, allowing striker Lapadula to swoop and volley into an open goal.Daryl Mitchell reached his century in the first over of the day, but Tom Blundell fell agonisingly short on 96 as Jimmy Anderson and Stuart Broad took the second new ball and swept through the tourists’ batting order.The All-Whites, who previously qualified for the World Cup in 1982 and 2010 but have yet to win a game, will face Costa Rica in Doha on June 14 with a spot in the 2022 finals on the line."I think we face a similar sort of physical challenge (against Costa Rica)," said Hay."That was a little bit of a shock.Broad then dismissed Jamieson first ball as New Zealand slumped from 251-4 to 251-7 by the end of the over..Tim Southee hit a swashbuckling 21 off 26 balls but was the last man out as spinner Matt Parkinson took his first test wicket, having been a late inclusion to the team after concussion ruled out Jack Leach on the first day on Thursday.
