# Match Coverage

All Match News## 'It was the best I'd hit it. I never repeated it'

It was carnage at Christchurch when Nathan Astle sent England's bowlers all over the park and set the record for the fastest double-century

## Astle smashes into record books

## England win by 98 runs but not before some palpitations

England went one-up in the National Bank Test series when achieving a 98-run win over New Zealand at Jade Stadium in Christchurch today, but not before some heart-stopping moments inspired by New Zealand batsman Nathan Astle

## Thorpe and Flintoff cash in against weakened attack

New Zealand's weary bowlers, on the receiving end of an English rewriting of the record books, could be excused if they asked Christchurch ground authorities to rename their stadium Jaded Stadium

## Disciplines needed by New Zealand but maybe too late

England will go into the third day of the first National Bank Test with a lead of 144 runs, eight wickets in hand, and a powerful position from which to beat New Zealand at Jade Stadium in Christchurch
