  • Carberry limps off after century

    The day before England name their squad for the first Test against New Zealand the batsmen with the most realistic prospects of a call-up in the near future failed to make the most of their second innings for the Lions at The Rose Bowl

  • How and Redmond seal draw

    Aaron Redmond completed an impressive build-up to the first Test against England with 64 to go alongside his first-innings 146 as the New Zealanders secured a draw against England Lions at The Rose Bowl

  • Short-pitched attack planned - Tremlett

    Chris Tremlett has said that New Zealand should be prepared for a short-pitched attack during the first Test after England Lions gave the batting line-up a working over on the second day at The Rose Bowl

  • Redmond ton keeps game level

    Aaron Redmond gave the New Zealanders a timely batting tonic with a grafting century on the second day against England Lions at The Rose Bowl, although they still face a deficit after a late collapse

  • Martin impresses but Wright fights back

    Most of England's second string didn't do much to enhance their reputations on the first day against the New Zealanders at The Rose Bowl, with the notable exception of Luke Wright who made a fine rearguard 120 to lift the Lions to 280
