Stuart Broad2877342.601278000
6.6 to JA Raval, edged and gone! You have to say that was coming in this over... something snapped in Raval's mind as Broad started to turn the screw on that round-the-wicket line. A firm-handed drive, no foot movement, and straight into Joe Root's breadbasket at first slip. England have their breakthrough, and a hard-earned one. 16/1
55.6 to TWM Latham, misjudgement! He's known where his off stump is, he's been so sure of it, but this time, Broad's angle back into the leftie scrambles his geometry. A sure-set leave-alone outside off, except it wasn't... it was right on the top of off stump itself!. 182/4
116.5 to BJ Watling, wow! Finally! Broad gets the breakthrough. He was way behind the crease when he let go of a short ball, steepling bounce, it strikes the bat high and loops to Burns at gully for a comfortable catch.. 315/6
120.4 to DJ Mitchell, banged in short, from wide on the crease, Mitchell climbs into the pull, but he's not got hold of this! Archer steadies himself on the boundary's edge at fine leg, reverse-cups the hands, swallows the chance, and now there's a real opening for England!. 330/7
Jofra Archer2887512.6713810200
128.6 to MJ Santner, pulled, top-edged, Woakes is the man on the square leg boundary, and Archer has the breakthrough! It's been hard work for England, but their toil is nearly over... maybe. 375/9
Chris Woakes3168332.6714812000
13.6 to KS Williamson, edged and gone! Wow, spoke too soon, as that one did just enough off the seam to kiss the edge as Williamson got squared up ... and a fat edge flew straight off the splice to Root for his second catch of the morning. Good areas from Woakes, and they snag the Big Fish!. 39/2
47.4 to LRPL Taylor, fifty and out! He's driven on the up and nicked it straight to Root first slip. It was travelling but the England skipper holds on tight.. 155/3
125.1 to TG Southee, gloved through to the keeper! England keep chipping away, and this is a sharp lifter on a good length from Woakes, the tight line denies Southee the chance to get out of harm's way, and that's Ollie Pope's maiden catch as a Test wicketkeeper, which is notable. 357/8
Sam Curran23.176322.7111210000
63.1 to HM Nicholls, banged in short, and Nicholls has walked straight into the honey-trap! Out comes the bouncer, out comes the pull, but the ball was well directed, right on the badge, and the ball ballooned off a top-edged pull to Broad at backward square! Now then!. 191/5
129.1 to N Wagner, full toss, on the legs, chipped to Sibley at midwicket, and that's the end of that! It's an easy game. A flurry of wickets and they all sprint from the field. Well, the openers do at any rate.. 375/10

Tim Southee3749022.4317413000
6.4 to DP Sibley, fuller ball, it's angling in straight, he's played at it but missed, it raps him on the pad and he's gone! LBW to end a rather flustered and short-lived stay at the crease. 11/1
91.5 to BA Stokes, edged and gone! That's a special delivery from Southee, it needed something perfect to extract the ominous Stokes. That shaped in on off stump, nipped a fraction away, and got the benefit of Stokes' hard-handed intent. Taylor scoops well at a solitary slip, and New Zealand have their reward for a dry spell of bowling. 245/4
Matt Henry3368712.631488100
9.5 to JL Denly, similar line, just outside off, Denly flashes at it and he's gone! He gets a substantial edge which Watling captures beautifully diving to his right. 24/2
Neil Wagner35.5312453.4614413110
94.2 to Z Crawley, edged and gone! Wagner finds the perfect length for the new boy, whose feet weren't moving as the ball tailed away from a hard-handed push! Watling dives away to his right and that's an early demise. 262/5
156.5 to OJ Pope, shorter ball, Pope looks to pull but ends up hoiking it towards deep square leg where Jeet Raval takes a comfortable catch .. finally New Zealand have a wicket!. 455/6
158.4 to CR Woakes, great length, on off-stump and he goes the drive, only to get a hefty edge to the keeper. 460/8
162.2 to JC Archer, slower ball from Wagner and he tempts another hearty drive from Archer, who chops the ball onto his stumps, gone!. 476/9
162.5 to SCJ Broad, clean bowled! Broad was sitting back as Wagner got the knuckle ball to float and dip and beat the bat, clattering into off stump. Wagner has a five-for. 476/10
Daryl Mitchell2256903.13969001
Mitchell Santner3548812.511436000
157.3 to JE Root, Root skips down the wicket and produces an inside-out slap to deep cover, where a catch by Henry Nicholls ends Root's innings!. 458/7

Sam Curran1625613.50727020
1.2 to JA Raval, stone-dead from Curran! That is as out as out can be, and Curran takes a leaf out of Broad's book, absolutely no need to look as he celebrappeals his way down the track! Raval played for swing, it just thudded the knee-roll on a wicket-to-wicket line, and well, as two-ball ducks go, that was a lively one!. 2/1
Jofra Archer1212702.25542000
Chris Woakes1141211.09560000
8.6 to TWM Latham, ping, next batsman please! That's a huge scalp, just back of a length from Woakes, and that seam movement comes to play too, kicking off the deck, kissing the edge, and fizzing to Root at a solitary wide slip. Both openers gone, and just the beginnings of bother for New Zealand!. 28/2
