Southee to Compton, OUT, Southee induces the edge! Southee did well to pitch it up to get Compton driving, the ball moved away after pitching, the outside edge ballooned towards Brownlie at third slip, he cups it in front of his face

NRD Compton c Brownlie b Southee 1 (17m 11b 0x4 0x6) SR: 9.09

England 11/1   AN Cook 9* (13b 2x4)   TG Southee 2-0-6-1

Wagner to Trott, OUT, drives at this though outside off and nicks it through to the keeper. Third loose drive of the morning from Trott and this time he's paid the price, a thin edge to McCullum trying to drive through the covers, the delivery just kept going away from him, having previously swung back into the middle of his bat

IJL Trott c †McCullum b Wagner 28 (94m 60b 6x4 0x6) SR: 46.66

England 67/2   AN Cook 34* (80b 6x4)   N Wagner 7-0-22-1

Bracewell to Cook, OUT, and another one! Full and Cook pokes at it just outside off and gets an edge to third slip where Brownlie proves he's safe hands again. Full ball around off stump, slid across the left-hander and Cook was a little late in getting across to it and got a thick edge as the bat came down a little late

AN Cook c Brownlie b Bracewell 34 (115m 81b 6x4 0x6) SR: 41.97

England 67/3   IR Bell 0* (0b)   DAJ Bracewell 5.1-2-17-1

Williamson to Bell, OUT, back and pushing at one outside off stump and he nicks it to the keeper. A thin edge that was well taken and another batsman goes after making a start for himself. Bell was hanging back trying to dab it into the covers but the ball slid on past his stroke and feathered the outside edge

IR Bell c †McCullum b Williamson 30 (113m 73b 5x4 0x6) SR: 41.09

England 146/4   JE Root 44* (85b 4x4)   KS Williamson 2.3-0-11-1

Boult to Root, OUT, and they do, as Root chases a back of a length ball that left him outside off stump and he nicks it to the keeper. Poor stroke really, followed it outside off and it should have been left. First ball with the new cherry, it just nipped a little down the slope

JE Root c †McCullum b Boult 104 (236m 167b 9x4 0x6) SR: 62.27

England 270/5   JM Bairstow 62* (90b 8x4)   TA Boult 15.1-3-33-1

Boult to Bairstow, OUT, just leaves Bairstow a little and he can't get the bat out of the way in time and gets an edge to McCullum and a second strike for Boult with the second new ball. It was slid across the right-hander and he tried to leave but hung the bat out and got an edge from the toe of the bat

JM Bairstow c †McCullum b Boult 64 (137m 99b 8x4 0x6) SR: 64.64

England 279/6   MJ Prior 7* (8b 1x4)   TA Boult 17-4-36-2

Boult to Broad, OUT, full length just outside off stump, Broad pokes at it and gets a little inside edge to the keeper. That's a fifth catch of the day for Brendon McCullum. No footwork from Broad and he pushed at a very full ball which nipped back enough to take the inside edge

SCJ Broad c †McCullum b Boult 0 (7m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

England 286/7   MJ Prior 12* (13b 2x4)   TA Boult 17.1-4-36-3

Southee to Prior, OUT, caught at first slip! Southee pitches it up outside off and he has Prior playing a flashy drive, the ball moves away, takes the thick outside edge and Taylor cups it in front of his face at slip

MJ Prior c Taylor b Southee 39 (68m 50b 7x4 0x6) SR: 78.00

England 345/8   GP Swann 23* (32b 2x4)   TG Southee 24.4-6-74-2

Boult to Finn, OUT, timber! This was just like the previous ball, full and swinging in on the off stump, Finn tries to get his high backlift down for the drive, hits the off stump and it goes back a few yards

ST Finn b Boult 6 (12m 5b 1x4 0x6) SR: 120.00

England 354/9   GP Swann 26* (44b 2x4)   TA Boult 21.3-4-57-4

Boult to Anderson, OUT, sharp catch! Boult gets five! He pitches it up on the off stump, Anderson was forward and got a leading edge that went low to Boult who adjusted quickly in his follow through and took the catch inches off the ground

JM Anderson c & b Boult 0 (1m 3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

England 354/10   GP Swann 26* (44b 2x4)   TA Boult 22-4-57-5
