Fall of wickets: 1-0 (Tom Latham, 0.6 ov), 2-35 (Will Young, 12.1 ov), 3-62 (Kane Williamson, 22.6 ov), 4-83 (Devon Conway, 34.3 ov), 5-123 (Henry Nicholls, 55.2 ov), 6-243 (Tom Blundell, 95.3 ov), 7-265 (Michael Bracewell, 106.4 ov), 8-325 (Daryl Mitchell, 115.5 ov), 9-329 (Tim Southee, 117.1 ov), 10-329 (Neil Wagner, 117.3 ov)
0.6 to TWM Latham, edged and gone! That line to the left-hander does the trick once more! He's set him up all over long, angle into the bat, play it or leave it? He plays at this one, there's just enough nibble on that off-stump line, Root at first slip gobbles the edge in his midriff, and England are away!. 0/1
22.6 to KS Williamson, nicked to the keeper! Broad has prised another breakthrough at the start of his spell! Williamson doesn't even consider reviewing, and England have the big wicket (notwithstanding KW's mediocre record in the country). Must have been some indecision caused by the big in-ducker the ball before and this one dragged him across and just held its line. 62/3
106.4 to MG Bracewell, gottim, steered to slip! Bracewell is tied up with a bow, and has to go! Broad keeps his lips pursed, but the eyes say everything. Excellent delivery, following up the in-ducker with on that held its line on off stump to take a fat outside edge. Crawley, at second slip, this time makes no mistake. 265/7
95.3 to TA Blundell, big appeal and given! And with no reviews Blundell has to walk! Well now, that was very full, but it was definitely leg-sided... and a suspicion of inside-edge maybe... I daresay there would have been a second opinion taken had one been on offer... another surprise inswinger from Potts, not unlike the one that got away against Mitchell on day one... now then. 243/6
34.3 to DP Conway, bowled him! 87mph, full length, pushed across the left-hander once more, who clatters into the drive, and clatters that habitual inside-edge back into his own timbers! A massive moment for the debutant, and precisely the incision he had been picked for, making a difference when a partnership was just developing. 83/4
12.1 to WA Young, nails the length, nails the lbw! Young has reviewed, but if there's no inside-edge this is very plumb! Round the wicket, straightens off the pitch, very adjacent to the bat, but skims into the pad... nope, no wood involved! Smashing middle peg, that's an arrival and a half! Young got his bat tangled in his pad, which denied him the saving grace. 35/2
55.2 to HM Nicholls, drives down the ground... and he's caught off Mitchell's bat at mid-off! Oh my days, what a way to get out! That's going straight in the What Happened Next? round of Question of Sport. Leach has no idea what just went off, but he's getting mobbed by his team-mates, as they celebrate a bizarre dismissal with the final ball before tea. Been a bit of a struggle out there for Nicholls, but you couldn't have predicted what would happen from his 99th ball faced. Solidly struck coming down, but Mitchell, trying to take evasive action, only succeeded in middling a catch to the alert Lees. Umpire Kettleborough was diving for cover, Leach was looking towards long-on, and Nicholls can only wince in dismay before walking off. 123/5
115.5 to DJ Mitchell, flighted delivery... and Mitchell is tempted, fatally! Miscued looking to go down the ground, taken by Stokes running back! Top catch, racing away to his left as the ball dropped over his shoulder. England's captain roars and throws the ball into the ground in celebration, the gambit to entice Mitchell finally succeeds - but he walks off having played superbly once again. Leach, understandably, is first across to give the skipper a hug. 325/8
117.1 to TG Southee, a wild wipe off a good length, it's the Stokes-Leach show at Headingley again! Inelegant from Southee, a half-scamper down the pitch, an off-balance thwack leads to a one-handed leading edge, Stokes steadies himself at mid-off and New Zealand are nine-down, and Leach is looking for a five-for!. 329/9
117.3 to N Wagner, hacked massively out to wide long-on, and Bairstow bags the five-for! It's in the air for an eternity, it's high and swirling, it calls for a sprint and dive, and a spin in mid-flight, but Bairstow stays cool, leaps forward, scoops it up in both hands, in front of that Western Stand, and it's huge acclaim for the spinner!. 329/10

Fall of wickets: 1-4 (Alex Lees, 0.5 ov), 2-14 (Ollie Pope, 4.4 ov), 3-17 (Zak Crawley, 6.5 ov), 4-21 (Joe Root, 7.5 ov), 5-55 (Ben Stokes, 11.2 ov), 6-55 (Ben Foakes, 11.5 ov), 7-296 (Jamie Overton, 57.3 ov), 8-351 (Stuart Broad, 64.6 ov), 9-351 (Jonny Bairstow, 65.1 ov), 10-360 (Jack Leach, 66.6 ov)
0.5 to AZ Lees, cleans him up! That's just exceptional bowling from Boult. Full, fast, zigzagging delivery, over the wicket and on the perfect line and length. Draws him one way, then the other, and plinks off his off bail as Lees leans into an attempted forward defence and is beaten around the outside edge. Brilliance. 4/1
4.4 to OJ Pope, sensational from Boult! He's ripped Pope apart like an over-eager puppy with a Christmas present! Once again Pope falls into his stroke because he has no clue how and where this is bending, except that it is, and it's straight through his defences and into the off stump! Shape from over the wicket, bend from a perfect line, and now England are in bother!. 14/2
6.5 to Z Crawley, stunning bowling! Crawley was lured at last into the hard-handed drive, but it's not the nick this time, it's the castling! A hooping inswinger, bends clean through the gate, his discipline lasted for all of 23 deliveries as his middle stump is pegged back with a resounding thunk!. 17/3
57.3 to J Overton, edged and gone! Overton chases the angle, tight to off stump and shaping ever further away, and it's a low edge to first slip! What a gutting moment from Overton, who gets a shoulder round his arm as he traipses off. He's rescued England's innings, but he's been denied his moment of history!. 296/7
7.5 to JE Root, this is masterful from New Zealand! Southee goes wider on the crease, serves up a snorter angled in on the full length, straightens just enough as Root is obliged to push through the line and Blundell snaffles the nick!. 21/4
64.6 to SCJ Broad, cleans him up! Finally! A length ball around off. Broad once again gave himself some room but realised soon it wasn't there to be hit. Looks to defend in the end but is beaten on the outside edge as the ball holds its line and hits the off stump. 351/8
66.6 to MJ Leach, given lbw. Fuller on the stumps, Leach looks to drive at it but gets beaten and is hit on the back pad. He has gone for the review straightaway. Only an inside edge can save him here. No bat involved and the ball-tracking confirms it would have gone on to hit the middle stump. 360/10
11.2 to BA Stokes, chipped to mid-off! Wagner lands a blow! Stokes' counter lasts all of 13 balls, as he hurtles down and tries to clear the man, only to mistime his shot for Williamson to hold a tumbling catch. Wagner bellows his approval, punches the air in celebration. NZ rip out a fifth. 55/5
11.5 to BT Foakes, trapped in front by an inswinger! Up goes the finger, Wagner has two in the over... or does he? Foakes reviews, but it looks a punt. Sure enough, it's struck him on the knee and would have clattered into the top of leg stump. England going down in a blaze. 55/6
65.1 to JM Bairstow, Bairstow holes out! Skips down the ground but Bracewell tosses it well outside off. Bairstow goes with the shot but hardly gets anything behind it and Boult dives forward at long-off to take it just above the ground. Applause for Bairstow as he walks back. 351/9

48.5 to HM Nicholls, a neat catch by Leach. Uses his feet but isn't to the pitch of the ball and ends up pushing at it. Leach goes low to his right and pouches it with both hands. 161/5
95.3 to MG Bracewell, flogged across the line... and Bracewell holes out to deep midwicket! Straight down Crawley's throat right back on the rope, and that's a very important breakthrough. Kudos to Leach, he held his nerve, kept inviting the long handle, with an in-out field to guard against all eventualities, and Bracewell pulls his stroke far squarer than intended. 291/7
101.1 to TG Southee, bowled 'im, top of middle! Leach fillets the NZ No. 9, and the run chase looms closer... Nice bit of drift in and Southee is hesitant getting forward. By the time he starts to play, the ball has kicked up off the deck and zips through the gap to ping the bails. Leach has a third with his lovely loopy stuff. 305/8
101.6 to N Wagner, has he nicked this? Has Billings caught it...? There's a scramble behind the stumps, the ball didn't seem to go in cleanly, but he finally pulls it out from between his knees. Marais Erasmus goes across to chat to his colleague, then gives the soft signal of 'out'. Clearly an edge on the replay, and this is going to be out! Billings is beaming, the luck with England. The ball missed the gloves and hit him in the chest, but he managed to snap his legs together and prevent it going to ground. Two in the over for Leach, this game is moving again!. 305/9
105.2 to TA Boult, bowled 'im! Leach has ten! Fired in straight with Boult trying to come down again, rattles the stumps. Leach is engulfed by his team-mates, his first ten-wicket haul in Tests. NZ have been wrapped up, and the target will be 296. Tantalising!. 326/10
7.6 to WA Young, the edge finds third slip this time! Seriously impressive from Potts, just hammering the full length on and around off stump, with just enough movement to keep Young guessing. His drive is loose and Pope's take at third slip is sharp. England are up and running. 28/1
43.5 to KS Williamson, Potts bags Williamson again! Outstanding bowling change, the perfect man for the moment, in the channel outside off, hitting the pitch hard, nibbling away, luring a fateful flirt outside the eyeline and Bairstow grabs the edge! Potts' relentless areas persuaded NZ's skipper to go where he didn't want to, and now this innings is cranked open!. 153/4
90.5 to DJ Mitchell, another appeal, another raised finger! Mitchell this time reviews... it was a slightly half-hearted appeal from England, but he was a long way across his stumps, working to leg. And so far on review this looks very adjacent! There's no bat, and back goes leg stump!. 274/6
33.1 to TWM Latham, round the wicket, and Overton strikes straightaway! The ideal line and length to challenge Latham's habitual anxiety outside off, and Bairstow swallows the edge! Angling in, just enough pace and nip to draw the error.. 125/2
41.4 to DP Conway, Pope at short leg! England strike straight after the break again! Root, round the wicket, finds bite on a good length, a fenced inside-edge to the leg side, and Pope swoops brilliantly with his left hand, inches from the turf!. 152/3

39.5 to OJ Pope, Cleans him up with a ripper! Just cuts back into Pope, who was not expecting it. Is rooted to the crease as the ball knock over off stump. What a start to the day for New Zealand. The 134-run stand is broken.. 185/3
12.1 to Z Crawley, Crawley holes out to cover! Williamson is the man, and that's a poor end to an innings that was just beginning to find some form from the deepest of holes. Brilliant field placing, tempting the stroke with gaps in the deep on the off side, and tossing it up, he was never over the stroke, and the chance just looped into his hands. 51/2
