  • New Zealand 103/3 (Taylor 37, Brownlie 10)
    Four more to Taylor and he brings up New Zealand's hundred. He's playing Swann well, getting to the pitch of the ball and smothering any spin.

  • New Zealand 112/3 (Taylor 42, Brownlie 14)
    Not great bowling from Swann and New Zealand pick up 7 from the over. Taylor batting positively here and frustrating England.
    5/27/2013 3:54:38 PM
  • New Zealand 117/3 (Taylor 43 Brownlie 18)
    Anderson continues, but still no joy. The weather seems to be closing in a bit here and the umpires are having a chat about the light.
    5/27/2013 4:00:20 PM
  • New Zealand 117/3 (Taylor 43, Brownlie 18)
    A maiden from Swann, the umpires have another look at the light. Reckon they might be coming off in a bit. Joe Root is being brought on to try and keep England on the field a bit longer. 
    5/27/2013 4:02:14 PM
  • New Zealand 118/3 (Taylor 44, Brownlie 18)
    So Root comes into the attack - is there no end to his talents? It's a fairly gentle first over, just conceding one run to Taylor.

    5/27/2013 4:10:40 PM
  • New Zealand 121/3 (Taylor 47, Brownlie 18)
    Spin at both ends now and Root picks up a maiden - umpires have another look at their light meters but play will continue.
    5/27/2013 4:12:10 PM
  • New Zealand 121/3 (Taylor 47, Brownlie 18)
    Swann gets in on the maiden act and England are going to bring Finn on despite the light.
    5/27/2013 4:17:27 PM
  • REVIEW! 
    5/27/2013 4:17:44 PM
  • NOT OUT - Finn thinks he has Taylor LBW but Marais Erasmus disagrees. Hawkeye reveals it just would have clipped leg so it remains umpires call.
    5/27/2013 4:19:09 PM
  • 50 for Ross Taylor from 78 balls
    5/27/2013 4:23:10 PM
  • New Zealand 131/3 (Taylor 55, Brownlie 20)
    Taylor almost chops onto his stumps in the same way the he was dismissed in the first innings but it lands safely in front of him rather than behind. 
    5/27/2013 4:29:50 PM
  • DRINKS: New Zealand 140/3 (Taylor 60, Brownlie 24)
    Expensive over from Finn, 9 coming from it with almost identical boundaries for Taylor and Brrownlie, off the back foot through point.

  • REVIEW! Taylor given out caught behind. He reviews immediately.
    5/27/2013 4:42:46 PM
  • NOT OUT. The noise was bat hitting pad not bat on ball.
    5/27/2013 4:43:55 PM
  • New Zealand 140/3 (Taylor 60, Brownlie 24)
    Good stuff from Swann. It's a maiden and he nearly gets Taylor. England would love to get him out tonight.
    5/27/2013 4:45:16 PM
  • WICKET! Brownlie c Bell b Finn - 25
    Finn gets Brownlie with a real snorter. He tries to get out of the way of the ball but can only glove it to Bell in the gully.
    5/27/2013 4:48:54 PM
  • New Zealand 144/4 (Taylor 60, Guptill 0)
    Breakthrough for England from Finn and he breaks up what had been a frustrating partnership.
    5/27/2013 4:51:05 PM
  • New Zealand 146/4(Taylor 65, Guptill 0)
    A maiden from Swann, Ross Taylor is playing him well today.

    5/27/2013 5:03:30 PM
  • New Zealand 151/4(Taylor 69, Guptill 1)
    Guptill off the mark with a single which means he has to face a whole over of Swann but he keeps the spinner out and it's a maiden.
    5/27/2013 5:09:48 PM
  • New Zealand 151/4(Taylor 69, Guptill 1)
    Broad into the attack to replace Finn and it's a good start, he bowls a maiden.
    5/27/2013 5:14:40 PM
  • WICKET! Guptill c Trott b Swann - 3
    Swann has another as he ends Guptill's scratchy innings. Guptill could only edge the ball straight to Trott at first slip.
    5/27/2013 5:15:44 PM
  • New Zealand 154/5 (Taylor 69, McCullum 0)
    Just a single from Broad's over and the umpires are having another chat about the light... 
    5/27/2013 5:24:01 PM
  • WICKET! Taylor b Swann - 70
    That's a huge wicket for England. Taylor is yorked by Swann and it clears up his stumps.
    5/27/2013 5:24:54 PM

  • If the weather intervenes does the Duckworth kick in?SaddenedMay 27, 2013 at 6:30 PM
    No, Duckworth Lewis is just for limited overs games. It will just be a draw.
    5/27/2013 5:31:12 PM
  • New Zealand 154/6(McCullum 0, Southee 0)
    Light closing in so England bring on Root who bowls out a maiden.

  • BAD LIGHT STOPS PLAY
    5/27/2013 5:36:13 PM
