       Southee to Lyth       17/1

Southee to Lyth,OUT,presses forward to a length ball, was there a nick? Yes, says umpire Ravi! Lyth winces, he doesn't look certain either way but Southee and his team-mates were pretty convinced... After a chat with Cook, the debutant decides against having his first crack at the DRS. Probably wise, as Hot Spot suggests a scintilla of outside edge on the ball, it was quick and drew him forwards, actually nipped back to shave the bat. A very decent ball and the tiniest, tiniest tickle ends Lyth's first Test innings

       Boult to Ballance       25/2

Boult to Ballance,OUT,drives at this one and he's gone, taking at third slip! Excellent diving catch from Southee, low to his right and Boult strikes in his first over from the Pavilion End. It was full and juicy, a seductive line and swinging late, Ballance pushed forwards a little harder than usual and a thick edge squirted into the cordon. The Black Caps are pointing perkily upwards

       Henry to Cook       25/3

Henry to Cook,OUT,banged in short, down the leg side, Cook flails a pull shot... and there's a scrap of something on it, up goes the finger again! England are three down and reeling in the sunshine. Cook seemed a bit surprised, maybe extra pace in it from Henry, if a touch wayward, he swatted across the line and got a faint top edge that every Kiwi on the pitch heard

       Henry to Bell       30/4

Henry to Bell,OUT,bowled him, that's a beaut of a ball! A beaut and a brute in one, Bell's off stump is pegged back and Henry has his second of the morning! New Zealand are tearing into an already wounded England, they stuck them in and are rattling through the hosts at HQ. This was unplayable, reminiscent of that Jimmy Anderson delivery to Michael Clarke a couple of summers back, pitching on off and holding its line to decapitate the stump

       Craig to Stokes       191/5

Craig to Stokes,OUT,shoulders arms outside off and bowls him! It's drifted into the top of off stump, slid down the slope and clipped the outside of the top of off. A great knock for Stokes but no century with that misjudgment. A wicket from nowhere for New Zealand, a breakthrough they so desperately needed

       Henry to Root       251/6

Henry to Root,OUT,slightly wide, Root goes for the cut that will bring up his hundred... but feathers an edge to the keeper! A second England batsman falls in the 90s, Root two runs short. Threw the bat but only managed to get a thin bottom edge on it

       Boult to Buttler       354/7

Boult to Buttler,OUT,full and straight, Buttler misses, huge cry for lbw and given out! Buttler reviews but it looks good. No bat and straight enough. Pitched in line, hit bang in front and going on to crash into middle stump. What a blow to the final ball of the day! Just a full, straight, fairly quick delivery and it's caught Buttler out right at the death here

       Boult to Ali       363/8

Boult to Ali,OUT,touch wider, Moeen flicks at it and nicks behind! It might have bounced a little but it was a slightly lazy waft from Moeen and he got a thick edge for an easy catch behind. Just what New Zealand were after, no real damage from Moeen this morning and a bit of bounce has done for him. Second look at the catch actually, Latham only just held on in his fingertips, reaching with two hands to his left. A relieved face!

       Boult to Broad       368/9

Boult to Broad,OUT,lovely delivery, angled into the stumps, it nibbles away a little and takes a thin edge behind! Second quick strike for New Zealand and it's a very nice piece of bowling, getting this to move a little down the slope and Broad, playing from the crease, got a feather edge - the tiniest mark on Hot Spot - through to Latham who took a far more solid catch this time

       Henry to Anderson       389/10

Henry to Anderson,OUT,full on off stump, Anderson presses at it and chips it back to the bowler who takes a lovely catch! Henry sticking out a right hand and clings on above his right shoulder without even looking at the ball! Very smart take and Henry finishes with four on debut

Fall of wickets - New Zealand 1 INN
       Ali to Latham       148/1

Ali to Latham,OUT,played back, it slides up the slope, strikes the pad and given out lbw! There's the breakthrough, Latham playing back when he should have been forward, trying to flick to leg, it skipped on a bit and caught the front pad half-way up going on to hit a good clunk of leg stump, umpire Ravi gave it out straightaway

       Broad to Guptill       148/2

Broad to Guptill,OUT,wider ball on a full length, Guptill seems to leather a drive but is caught to cover! Ballance gets down low to his left to take a good catch and now both openers are out within three balls, just what England wanted. Guptill was reaching for this a bit and swung a drive, got it off low on the bat and it looped towards Ballance, dying on him, solid catch
