England v New Zealand 1st Test - LIVE!

  • Players and umpires back out onto the field now and we'll start with the final two balls of Stuart Broad's over...
    5/19/2013 12:39:42 PM
  • New Zealand 30/6 (Watling 0, Southee 1)
    Just two balls from Stuart Broad and Southee gets off the mark with a single before Watling gets a ripper from Broad which he does well not to get any bat on. This might not take long...
    5/19/2013 12:41:24 PM
  • New Zealand 35/6 (Watling 4, Southee 2)
    For all Broad's wicket taking heroics, Anderson has also bowled quite brilliantly today and he hits Watling first ball with a snorter. The keeper does pick up a four to get off the mark at the end of the over but it's not very convincing.
    5/19/2013 12:45:30 PM
  • New Zealand 36/6 (Watling 4, Southee 3)
    Southee chips one up that drops just short of Bairstow at point and then picks up a streaky single with a shot that is in the air for some time but lands safely. Watling sees off the rest of the over.

  • New Zealand 41/6 (Watling 4, Southee 7)
    New Zealand remain defiant, Southee looking unsure in defence but Watling looking solid.
    5/19/2013 12:53:11 PM
  • DROPPED CATCH! Southee edges to the slips but is put down.
    5/19/2013 12:53:48 PM
  • WICKET! Southee c Root b Broad - 7 
    It's not a costly miss for England though as Broad gets Southee next ball. He tries to hook a short ball and is well caught by Joe Root in the deep. Broad has six, New Zealand seven down.
    5/19/2013 12:54:07 PM
  • New Zealand 48/7 (Watling 11, Wagner 0)
    Dramatic over, a dropped catch followed by a wicket and Broad puts England ever closer to victory.

  • New Zealand 49/7 (Watling 12, Wagner 0)
    Anderson bowling with five slips now but he can't make further inroads and New Zealand stay unscathed.
    5/19/2013 1:04:58 PM
  • New Zealand 54/7 (Watling 13, Wagner 4)
    Broad continues and Cook might find it hard to get the ball off him, but he doesn't strike again and Wagner is off the mark, driving square for four.
    5/19/2013 1:09:17 PM
  • WICKET! Watling c Trott b Anderson - 13
    Anderson pauses before delivering to give the ball a furious bit of extra polishing on his trousers and it seems to do the trick, he gets Watling to edge to Trott who pouches the catch an New Zealand are eight down. England just two away here from a dramatic win.
    5/19/2013 1:10:30 PM
  • Bruce Martin who has an injured calf is the next man in.
    5/19/2013 1:13:12 PM
  • New Zealand 54/8 (Wagner 4, Martin 0)
    Anderson has his second wicket and victory for England moves even closer.
    5/19/2013 1:14:51 PM
  • First six of the match from Wagner who hooks a short one from Broad towards Billy Root in the deep but it sails over the head of everyone's favourite 12th man and into the crowd.
