Match Notes

  • Marshall and Flynn sweat over selection

    New Zealand's line-up for the third Test against England at Trent Bridge on Thursday could feature as many as three changes from the side that lost at Old Trafford last week

  • Taylor stars but Flynn fails

    Ross Taylor continued his fine form with 150 against Northamptonshire as the New Zealanders opted for batting practice on the final day at Wantage Road

  • Southee stakes Test claim

    Tim Southee made a strong case for a recall ahead of the final Test with 5 for 42 on the second day against Northamptonshire, but it didn't all go the New Zealanders' way at Wantage Road

  • Redmond hundred lifts NZ spirits

    The New Zealanders began rebuilding their shattered confidence, following the six-wicket defeat in the second Test at Old Trafford, as Aaron Redmond hit 121 on the opening day against Northamptonshire

  • Flynn passed fit for tour match

    New Zealand batsman Daniel Flynn has been passed fit to take part in his side's three-day tour match against Northamptonshire, after recovering sufficiently from dental surgery
