  • I can't go out and put my keys in it, but here is a closer look at the surface these two sides are playing on:

  • 47th over - New Zealand 151/4 (Williamson 43, McCullum 0)
    Finn continues and he knocks the bowlers end stumps over for the first time in the game giving away a no ball. The dangers of the long run up...

  • 48th over - New Zealand 152/4 (Williamson 43, McCullum 1)
    McCullum off the mark with a drive past mid on and he picks up a single.

  • 49th over - New Zealand 152/4 (Williamson 43, McCullum 1)
    McCullum takes a blow to a particularly sensitive area but he appears to show no ill effects although he doesn't manage to score off the rest of the over and Finn bowls out a maiden.

  • BAD LIGHT STOPPED PLAY - New Zealand cower at the sight of Jonathan Trott running in to bowl and take the light when offered it by the umpires. That should be that for the day.

  • That's that for the day and New Zealand look well set to take a first innings lead here at Lord's, James Anderson has bowled well but he has not really been supported well by his fellow seamers and they have allowed New Zealand too many easy runs. 

    England will be hoping for some early wickets tomorrow to get back in the game although signs of turn for Graeme Swann even on day two will be encouraging for them. 

    All in all this game is fascinatingly poised. Join us again tomorrow for Day Three.
