- England lead New Zealand by 115 runs going into day three of the second Test
- Stuart Broad looked impressive with the ball, taking four wickets for 38 runs
- England are 1-0 down in the series after a disastrous opening in Auckland
England lead New Zealand by 115 runs going into day three, with Stuart Broad taking 4 for 38 on a strong day for England’s bowlers.
He ended a record sixth-wicket stand of 142 between BJ Watling and Colin de Grandhomme, having the latter caught by Jonny Bairstow on 72.
Jimmy Anderson was also in form, taking three wickets as New Zealand ended on 192 for 7 in response to the tourists’ first innings of 307.
Auckland’s day one debacle saw England collapse to just 58 all out, and the pack was well-and-truly shuffled before the team arrived in Christchurch.
Despite that, they appear no nearer finding a combination that can compete with New Zealand, let alone the three countries above them in the world Test rankings.
The action on day three of the second Test starts at 11pm GMT, and you can follow the latest score here with Sportsmail.
