Fans who came to watch the Lord's Test between England and New Zealand on day four were refunded the amount they paid to get the tickets. According to the board policy, if a match is finished in less than 15 overs, the ticket prices will be refunded to the fans in attendance.

This would have surely come in as relief for the fans who would have expected hard-hitting action on day 4, but were ultimately in for an anti-climax.  

Full refund policy as mentioned on Lord's cricket Ground website

7.2 A refund scheme applies to the first four days of the First Test Match and Second Test Match, if:

7.2.1 play is restricted or does not take place on the Match Day for which the Ticket is valid, an automatic refund will be made to the original credit or debit card used to make the purchase of the Ticket(s), subject to there being:

(i) 15 overs or less because of weather conditions or completion of the Match – a full refund; or

(ii) 15.1 overs to 29.5 overs because of weather conditions or completion of the Match – a 50% refund

ENG vs NZ - 1st Test - Match Report

Powered by a brilliant hundred by former England skipper Joe Root, England made short work of New Zealand on the morning of day 4 to win the Lord's Test, and go one up in the three-match series. 

Root and Foakes carried on with their good work on the morning of day 4 and took their team home without breaking much sweat. 

Heading into day 4 and with Root at the crease, England needed 61 runs to win. Daryl Mitchell and Tom Blundell put on an absolute exhibition of top-class test batting as Mitchell slammed a sensational 108, and Blundell got out after making a magnificent 96. 

New Zealand looked well set for a massive score, but Stuart Broad was back at his scary best as he turned the match on its head as soon as England took the new ball. Broad first sent the centurion Daryl Mitchell back, who did not look like getting out at all. 

Grandhomme was the next batter, and he struck him on the pads on the first ball. Although the umpire did not give that out, he was seen flirting with risk outside the crease and Pope, who was stationed at Gully, ran him out. 

Jamieson came out next, encountered a jaffa, and was bowled out, and in no time the complexion of the match was entirely changed, thanks to vintage Broad. 

England eventually bundled NZ out for 285 runs.

Chasing 277, England were reeling at 69/4 at one stage. But Ben Stokes, along with Joe Root stitched together a wonderful partnership and took England to 159. Stokes scored 54 before getting out a jaffa by Jamieson. Ben Foakes and Joe Root took England to 216 by the end of day 3.  

The two teams will next collide at Trent Bridge, Nottingham on June 10. If the first test was anything to go by, don't expect anything less than a thriller.
