At Derby, May 4-6. New Zealanders won by 107 runs. Toss: Derbyshire.
New Zealand's back-up bowlers gave their selectors something to think about: in the absence of Trent Boult and Tim Southee, who were rested, the bustling left-armer Wagner took eight wickets in the match, and Bracewell seven. Their batsmen were rather less impressive, although Watling produced two adhesive knocks, and Brownlie played attractively in the first innings. For Derbyshire, left-armer Footitt troubled the top order with his pace, and took six wickets in his first match of the season to boost his chances of a regular place.
Close of play: first day, Derbyshire 24-1 (Godleman 9); second day, New Zealanders 199-5 (Watling 61, Latham 47).
