    … Second Innings …

  3. !

    Now, it is time for England to bat. They need to put on a good show on a wicket which is a good one to bat on. New Zealand on the other hand, need to be patient and just hit the right lines and lengths. They will love a couple of wickets before Stumps.

  4. !

    The England bowlers were made to toil hard. The wicket had nothing on offer for them. However, they will be a tad disappointed with freedom they let New Zealand score at. They though bowled a lot better today. All of their bowlers except for Root got a wicket at least. Anderson was the pick with a three-fer.

  5. !

    What a sublime knock from Daryl Mitchell. He was the highlight and along with Blundell, the reason as to why the Kiwis are in such a strong position. Yes, there were others who got off to starts too but it was the massive 200-plus stand between those two which is what has turned the tide in the visitors’ favor. Mitchell was unlucky to not get a double ton. He kept losing partners and then was the last one to fall but a tremendous effort from him.

  6. !

    Finally the New Zealand innings comes to an end and we believe they have batted themselves into a very good position here. Probably in one from where they can’t lose the game.
