  • Overs 1-50

  • Overs 101-150

Martin to Compton, OUT, floated up outside off and Compton comes down the track, tries to go over the in-field and gets a wild outside edge that loops to point. That's what pressure does. Compton comes down the wicket to try and snap this run of dot balls but in trying a lofted off-drive has perished. Good running catch from Southee going to his right and diving forward

NRD Compton c Southee b Martin 16 (95m 62b 0x4 0x6) SR: 25.80

England 43/1   AN Cook 21* (73b 2x4)   BP Martin 1.1-1-0-1

Boult to Cook, OUT, swinging away, snicks the edge and Watling takes a brilliant diving catch! Cook's a goner! Boult gets his man, and with only two added to his score since the lbw appeal. The conditions have just tipped back towards the bowling side at Lord's and Boult exploited the atmospherics adroitly, nipping the ball away on that in-between length - though it needed an excellent low take from the keeper to complete the dismissal and send Cook back

AN Cook c †Watling b Boult 32 (150m 115b 2x4 0x6) SR: 27.82

England 67/2   IJL Trott 13* (35b 2x4)   TA Boult 11-4-11-1

Boult to Trott, OUT, oh what a cracker, edged and a superb catch at third slip. That is angled in towards Trott's middle and leg stumps, he's gone back to block but it has suddenly left him and taken a thick outside edge that is quite brilliantly held by a diving Brownlie, getting across wonderfully well to take it inches from the ground

IJL Trott c Brownlie b Boult 39 (132m 96b 6x4 0x6) SR: 40.62

England 112/3   IR Bell 18* (53b 2x4)   TA Boult 13.5-4-23-2

Wagner to Bell, OUT, sliding across the right-hander and Bell follows it and nicks off. Bell should have left it but Wagner is rewarded for changing his line of attack and has eventually got Bell to nibble outside off stump, what a blow for New Zealand just before the second new ball. Regulation length delivery, a long way outside off and Bell should have been nowhere near it but reached across and edged it

IR Bell c †Watling b Wagner 31 (168m 133b 4x4 0x6) SR: 23.30

England 157/4   JE Root 25* (69b 3x4)   N Wagner 19.2-6-45-1

Southee to Root, OUT, full ball down the leg side, a cry for a strange and given out caught behind. Stinker of a dismissal from Root's point of view but Southee is delighted to get the breakthrough. It was a full ball slid into the batsman's bat, Root went to flick it away and got a thin edge that was well held from Watling diving with two hands to his left

JE Root c †Watling b Southee 40 (180m 114b 4x4 0x6) SR: 35.08

England 192/5   JM Bairstow 19* (58b 2x4)   TG Southee 21.3-5-45-1

Southee to Prior, OUT, inswinger, a top delivery, catches Prior on the pad and given out lbw. Comes back and beats Prior's inside edge, caught him on the knee roll, no inside edge, is it sliding down? No it's catching the top of leg stump, Prior goes and Southee has his 200th wicket in international cricket

MJ Prior lbw b Southee 0 (1m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

England 192/6   JM Bairstow 19* (58b 2x4)   TG Southee 21.4-5-45-2

Wagner to Broad, OUT, full, straight and swinging and Broad is plumb lbw. It wasn't right up there in the blockhole but the length and hint of away swing was too much for Broad who played right across it. Well bowled Wagner, similar to the delivery that got Kevin Pietersen in Dunedin

SCJ Broad lbw b Wagner 0 (5m 3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

England 195/7   JM Bairstow 22* (59b 2x4)   N Wagner 24.2-7-61-2

Wagner to Swann, OUT, length just outside off, thin edge and taken! Tight line, Swann forced to play at it and got a thin edge through to Watling who gleefully accepted a straightforward chance. It shaped to come back into the right-hander but left him slightly down the hill to catch a thin outside edge, well bowled again

GP Swann c †Watling b Wagner 5 (9m 9b 1x4 0x6) SR: 55.55

England 201/8   JM Bairstow 23* (61b 2x4)   N Wagner 25.1-7-65-3

Southee to Finn, OUT, this time it is a wicket! Southee pitches it further up from wide of the crease, the batsman tries to flick it to the on side, but he played outside the line and that would have crashed on the middle and leg stump. Wicket no. 3 for Southee

ST Finn lbw b Southee 4 (45m 30b 0x4 0x6) SR: 13.33

England 221/9   JM Bairstow 37* (103b 3x4)   TG Southee 27.1-8-54-3

Southee to Bairstow, OUT, oye! What a catch! Southee takes No. 4. This was fuller on off stump and Bairstow thumps it back towards the bowler with a lot of power. Southee had barely a fraction of a second to react and he does well as he hold on to this waist high catch to his left

JM Bairstow c & b Southee 41 (155m 107b 4x4 0x6) SR: 38.31

England 232/10   JM Anderson 7* (9b)   TG Southee 28.2-8-58-4
