OUT! L.B.W. Neil Wagner to Stuart Broad. Full toss, to leg no foot movement defending, hit pad to. The double bluff works! Broad is pinned in front first ball. A field is set that is so clear that the short ball should have been coming, but Wagner fires it in full and straight. Broad is timid and deep in the crease, and misses a full toss. Simple decision for the umpire, it was plumb. A review taken, but just in hope.A terrific performance from the home side. Utterly dominant from day three onwards, and they have battered England here. The highlights across the Test were BJ Watling's double century, and Mitchell Santner's maiden hundred. Neil Wagner starred with the ball today to pick up a five wicket haul, too. Not many positives for the visitors, who are still struggling in this format of the game. They need to improve if they want to compete at this level.The Kiwis go 1-0 up in the two match series. The next one begins on Friday, and that will be played at Seddon Park.

W
OUT! Caught (Sub). Neil Wagner to Jofra Archer. Short, outside off stump on the back foot hooking, in the air uncontrolled to fine leg. No surprise to who gets the breakthrough. Neil Wagner is so reliable for New Zealand in the second innings of a Test. Banged into the pitch, Jorfa is a happy puller, but gets right underneath this. Lifted away straight down the throat of long leg. Regulation catch for the sub fielder. Only one more needed for the Kiwis.

OUT! Bowled. Neil Wagner to Stuart Broad. Out-swinging length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, inside edge to. Broad gone! England are all out for 353, after the start England made they will be very disappointed with the way that innings went, a burst of quick wickets really halted the runs and New Zealand after a stubborn partnership finally got Buttler which signalled the end of the England innings. New Zealand have a job to do now, the pitch looks in decent condition but the ball has been moving all day so expect a few edges early on in the New Zealand innings. Let's see what Broad and Archer can do at the Bay Oval.

FOUR! Neil Wagner to Jack Leach. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot pushing, outside edge past third man for 4 runs. Leach with an outside edge through the slip cordon for four, runs are needed for England to get this total to a competitive score, I think Broad will come out swinging now.

OUT! Caught. Neil Wagner to Jos Buttler. Back of a length, middle stump on the back foot cutting, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to deep point, by Santner. Buttler gone! The past couple of balls he has looked to be aggressive, this time he holes out to Santner at deep backward point. Another start from an England batter, this one was in different circumstances, but he will still be annoyed that he didn't get the half century.

And that's Lunch, New Zealand's session that picking up four important wickets, loose batting from England with them dismissals the Curran wicket was a beauty of a ball but with Stokes and Pope you feel they could've easily left the balls on a fifth (or further) stump line. Southee the pick of the bowlers today but this partnership is not over, New Zealand still have work to do to get this England tail end out.

This test match hangs in the balance at the Bay Oval as England ended the first day on 241 for 4 after Burns and Denly made good starts. Currently Stokes and Pope occupy the crease, Stokes in good form, is on 67 playing a cautious innings on a fairly slow pitch. The new ball was taken late on in the day yesterday so will be still in good condition as Southee, Boult and co seek some early wickets to swing momentum in their favour. Stokes and Pope look in good form, Stokes continuing his good form from the World Cup and The Ashes, Pope with some good form for Surrey certainly helping him play his natural game even at this high level. New Zealand bowled a good line and length yesterday and were rewarded with key wickets, the one that got away however was the wicket of Stokes, the home side should've taken the wicket late on in the day but he survived thanks to Taylor dropping him at first slip. This game hangs in the balance here, today should paint a clearer picture of who is going to come out victorious in the first Test of the New Zealand summer.

And that's day one done, after a slow couple of sessions England looked to up the run rate towards the end of the evening session, Stokes the key cog in the machine now after Denly departed, some soft dismissals for England's batters meant they have lost four wickets, New Zealand consistantly bowled a good line and length, challenging England's top order through that fourth/fifth stump region. The game hangs in the balance at the Bay Oval, day two should give us a good indication of the way this game will go.

OUT! Caught. Colin de Grandhomme to Rory Burns. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot pushing, outside edge in the air uncontrolled to wicketkeeper, by Watling. Burns out! After the fifty he nicks one to Watling, he pushes loosely at a ball going away from him, a really soft dismissal that will give New Zealand some hope going into the latter stages of the second session.

Perfect start for Sibley, first ball dispatched away on the leg-side for four, that should ease the pressure. Big few overs coming up for England after their batting struggles in recent history.

Start of England Innings. Welcome to the first of two test matches between New Zealand and England which takes place at the Bay Oval, the first time the ground has hosted an International Test Match another first is Chris Silverwood taking charge of his first England Test match, so it will be interesting to see the changes in style and personnel this team will have after The Ashes. As for New Zealand a 1-1 draw with Sri Lanka in their last Test series means they will be looking for improvement going into this set of matches. One advantage the home side have on the visitors is their dominant batting line-up, in the last year three New Zealander's have a batting average of over 60 in test cricket, as for England, Ben Stokes tops the list with an average of 48.4, showing signs of vulnerability. A big test for both sides awaits in what will be Chris Silverwood's first game in charge.

FOUR! Jack Leach to Neil Wagner. Stock length ball, outside off stump on the front foot reverse sweeping, well timed past third man for 4 runs. Innovation from Wagner! He brings out the reverse, and connects superbly. Paddled away for four runs.Williamson calls in the last pair, and New Zealand have declared. Not sure why they needed the three overs after tea, but they have boosted their lead up to 262. A very tricky task for the England batsmen now. The pitch is still good for batting, but this will purely be a mental challenge to be able to escape with a draw. The Kiwi bowlers have been resting for two days, and will come charging out after a short break.

New Zealand may have meandered in the morning, but they have motored along this afternoon. Santner injected some pace and got to his first Test century, before he was eventually caught in the deep off Sam Curran. BJ Watling just seems immovable, and he was able to get to his maiden double hundred before the break. Will New Zealand carry on batting in the evening to pile more misery on England? They have a big enough lead to exert quite a bit of pressure on the visitors. A vital last couple of hours coming up.

APPEAL! Joe Root to Mitchell Santner. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the back foot defending, hit pad to short extra cover for no runs, fielded by Denly, appeal made for L.B.W. This is close! The ball skids on with the arm and keeps very low. Santner cannot get the bat down in time to keep it out. Luckily for him, though, the ball was sliding past leg stump.

Welcome to Day 4 at Mount Maunganui. The hosts fought hard yesterday, mainly down to the gritty effort of BJ Watling, to push themselves into a decent little lead. The wicketkeeper-batsman is still unbeaten, and along with Mitchell Santner and the tail, the Kiwis will fancy boosting their advantage up towards, or even past, 100 runs. The pitch did look pretty flat on the third day, but England were equally as flat with their performance in the field. Lacklustre with the ball, and sloppy with their fielding, too. They need a response from their players to find a way back in this match. New Zealand have their noses in front at the moment, but this format can quickly change in a session. It should be a fascinating day of cricket ahead.

End of day three and today went to New Zealand, a brilliant day with the bat from BJ Watling, a hundred to his name and complete control when batting, just what was needed from today. As for England, a frustrating day in the field, they only picked up two wickets. Santner at the other end for Watling looked good dealing with the short ball, then at the end he struggled a bit with Stokes' aggressive bowling. New Zealand now lead by 41 runs and have turned this game on its head.

OUT! Caught. Ben Stokes to Colin de Grandhomme. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot cutting, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to gully, fielded by Sibley. What a grab! Sibley with the catch at gully! His first in test cricket and one he will remember, de Grandhomme with a loose cut to a short ball, Sibley makes the dive and the ball sticks in his right hand. That's just what England needed, right after the break they have struck.

Jack Leach to BJ Watling. Stock length ball, outside off stump on the back foot Leave, Left to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Buttler. Tea on the third day and this session has been dominated by New Zealand, de Grandhomme and Watling accelerating the run rate and making England bowlers frustrated. Not much England haven't tried but maybe the break will see the return of Stokes, he has been under used today and has got a wicket in him, he is one of those players that can get something out of nothing, putting him on wouldn't be a bad idea. The wicket looks to be flatter than the previous day which is good for New Zealand in their run chase, Broad is getting some nibble from the pitch but not as frequent as he would like. England need a wicket and need it fast in the next session.

He has changed the fortune of the home team with his quick fire half century.

Runs : 2 Bowler: Joe Root Wickets : 0
Day three at the Bay Oval and England are in a good position to take a 1-0 lead in this series, New Zealand are currently 4-144 trailing the visitors by 209 runs. Key wickets yesterday included Williamson and Taylor, both were from short balls so expect more of the same on this day three track from England. Archer peppered Watling and Nicholls late on last night with Nicholls taking a knock on the helmet just before the close of play, the first few overs of the day three will be testing for the New Zealand batsmen with refreshed bowlers coming off a good days play. England will be looking to take wickets early, you would imagine Root will play this one aggressive with the big lead they have at the moment, but a few good overs for New Zealand could give them hope to chase down the first innings score.

Joe Root to BJ Watling. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the back foot defending, to short extra cover for no runs, fielded by Burns. That dot signals the end of play for day 2, a good day for England after the morning session, getting the key wickets of Taylor and Williamson, Watling and Nicholls hanging in at the end to give New Zealand some hope of getting to a decent score, one thing they need to be vary of is the condition of the pitch, we saw Williamson get out to a freak ball that shot up, maybe that is a sign of things to come for tomorrow, in which case New Zealand will need to be patient England will be happy with the days play but they wish they could've got more, they were in a good position to get 400 plus but loose shots let them down. Day three tomorrow and the match looks good for England, but there's still a long way to go in this match and New Zealand will feel they can get a few more runs to put pressure on the England batters.

OUT! Caught. Sam Curran to Kane Williamson. Back of a length, middle stump on the back foot defending, Gloved in the air uncontrolled to second slip, by Stokes. Big wicket! Williamson is out! Sharp bounce gets him to glove one to Stokes in the slips, that bounce was not expected, really strange, the pitch hadn't been doing anything all game but that one shot up. England on the ascendancy with that wicket, it's now up to Watling and Nicholls to stop this innings from falling apart.

OUT! L.B.W. Neil Wagner to Stuart Broad. Full toss, to leg no foot movement defending, hit pad to. The double bluff works! Broad is pinned in front first ball. A field is set that is so clear that the short ball should have been coming, but Wagner fires it in full and straight. Broad is timid and deep in the crease, and misses a full toss. Simple decision for the umpire, it was plumb. A review taken, but just in hope.A terrific performance from the home side. Utterly dominant from day three onwards, and they have battered England here. The highlights across the Test were BJ Watling's double century, and Mitchell Santner's maiden hundred. Neil Wagner starred with the ball today to pick up a five wicket haul, too. Not many positives for the visitors, who are still struggling in this format of the game. They need to improve if they want to compete at this level.The Kiwis go 1-0 up in the two match series. The next one begins on Friday, and that will be played at Seddon Park.

OUT! Caught (Sub). Neil Wagner to Jofra Archer. Short, outside off stump on the back foot hooking, in the air uncontrolled to fine leg. No surprise to who gets the breakthrough. Neil Wagner is so reliable for New Zealand in the second innings of a Test. Banged into the pitch, Jorfa is a happy puller, but gets right underneath this. Lifted away straight down the throat of long leg. Regulation catch for the sub fielder. Only one more needed for the Kiwis.

OUT! Caught. Neil Wagner to Ollie Pope. Slower ball full toss, outside off stump on the front foot driving, to short extra cover, by Santner. The worst ball of the Test from Neil Wagner, but he gets New Zealand their seventh wicket. A looping, wide, full toss, and Pope goes chasing after it. A check-drive, that is hit quite sweetly, but there are three catching covers in place. It's a stunning grab from Mitchell Santner. Everything is going right for him in this game. He flings himself to his right, and it sticks into the middle of the right palm. That was a corker.

Denly tries to get out the way, but the ball kisses the glove before being pouched by the keeper. A good battling innings comes to an end.

An absorbing session there. England just able to add 43 runs, and New Zealand took the vital wicket of Joe Root. It came from an unlikely source, in Colin de Grandhomme, with the England captain playing a very loose shot. Apart from that, though, the visitors have looked pretty solid. The odd ball is misbehaving, but they are grinding it out well so far. New Zealand won't be too worried yet, but will be wanting at least three wickets in the afternoon to push on to the win. Join us after the break to see if they can do that.
