.
Joe Root to Ross Taylor. Off break length ball, down leg side on the front foot defending, to point for no runs, fielded by Stokes. Rain delay in Hamilton, that almost ends it with the stoppage you can't see either side getting a result out of this, in the current session Taylor advances onto 105 after three boundaries in a row just before the rain stopped play, Williamson there with him on 104. The deck is flat the ball is old and not moving off the seam or in the air so runs are easy to come by and maintaining your wicket has been simple, not much for England to play for with heavy showers coming through for the next hour or so. After a couple of hours of waiting for a call the umpires finally call it a draw, New Zealand win the two match series 1-0 after winning the first game at the Bay Oval. England nearly got a result here, rain was their biggest enemy after it stopped four sessions worth of play which would've been enough for a result. Hundreds all over the place on this road with Root, Latham, Burns, Taylor and Williamson all picking up triple figure scores. As for the series, England will be happy with the batting aspect of the first innings in Hamilton, getting their first score over 400 in two years, Pope looked good in Hamilton as well, batting for a patient 75. As for the bowling, the tracks England bowled on weren't the friendliest and so judging their bowling would be unfair, I think more than anything the tempo in the field was lacking and that effected the bowling, and that allowed New Zealand to post a big score at the Bay Oval, England did get into good positions in both games but failed to seal the final couple of batters to reduce the New Zealand scores. England move onto South Africa whilst New Zealand travel to Australia for a big three test series against their biggest rivals.

SIX! Joe Root to Ross Taylor. Off break length ball, down leg side on the front foot slog sweeping, well timed in the air under control over deep mid wicket for 6 runs. Taylor with a century! Class batting from him to see off the threat yesterday and score efficiently with Williamson whilst playing risk free batting, these two have put on 213 together and don't look like getting out now.
74.3
6
SIX! Joe Root to Ross Taylor. Off break length ball, down leg side on the front foot slog sweeping, well timed in the air under control over deep square leg for 6 runs. That six moves Taylor onto 99, huge slog-sweep, Taylor knows the rain is coming and might end the game early so he doesn't want to end it without scoring a ton.
74.2

FOUR! Joe Root to Ross Taylor. Off break length ball, down leg side on the front foot slog sweeping, well timed past deep mid wicket for 4 runs. Taylor not messing about here, he wants to get his ton quickly, he heaves this one into the gap on the leg-side, not much danger involved with mid-wicket free.

FOUR! Joe Root to Kane Williamson. Off break length ball, down leg side on the front foot sweeping, well timed past fine leg for 4 runs. Sweep down the fine leg for four and Williamson gets his 21st test century! Shaky batting at times but he dug deep and did what he needed to do which was to maintain his wicket, runs have come easily on this deck and he has cashed in, terrific work from the New Zealand captain.

Chris Woakes to BJ Watling. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot defending, to point for no runs, fielded by Crawley. Lunch on day two, a session of two halves, the first half was dominated by England with the key wickets of Latham and Nicholls to bring two new batsmen in, the second half belonged to New Zealand, a good partnership is forming between Watling and Mitchell, adding 57 onto the score. England looked good early on and looked aggressive, when the new ball was taken you expected more of that, but they failed to get going, it didn't feel like they were in control of the game and with one or two wickets they would've been in complete control. Both batters at the crease are in good touch, Watling off the back of his double hundred is seeing the ball well and scoring patiently.

OUT! Caught. Sam Curran to Henry Nicholls. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot hooking, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to fine leg, by Broad. Big wicket! Nicholls is out! He hooks one straight into the hands of Broad after Curran gives him a short ball, it looks like the short one took him by surprise a bit and was late on the shot. Great start for England on this second day, two new batters in now, one on debut, it's their time to shine after a disappointing day one.

Jofra Archer to Tom Latham. Short, outside off stump swayed away Leave, Left to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Pope. Day 2 of the second test between New Zealand and England is set to start shortly with the home team 173 for 3 after a magnificent hundred from Tom Latham, and half century from Taylor. Play was halted for the day three balls after tea which means we start half an hour early today, the bad news is there is more rain forecast for today, so play could be stopped prematurely today too. Yesterday belonged to New Zealand after England failed to get the ball to swing in the opening stanza of day 1, with the ball not swinging and not much movement off the surface, New Zealand will feel like 400+ is a good score to settle on for the day especially with rain playing it's part in the match. A big doubt for England for both batting and bowling is Ben Stokes who pulled up yesterday after bowling two overs, if he can't recover to bat in his regular spot it will be a huge blow for them, he is the form batsman in the side with others around him struggling for runs.

Jofra Archer to Tom Latham. Back of a length, outside off stump on the front foot working, hit pad to short leg for no runs, fielded by Sibley. After just three balls after the Tea break the rain comes down in Hamilton, it looks pretty miserable where the rain is coming from so this might be a lengthy delay. And that's it for today, stumps being called early here as rain continues to pour in Hamilton, Latham remains on 101 after his impressive ton just before tea. England been below par today, Stokes with a drop catch which would've seen New Zealand on the ropes, but Latham survived and made a ton off the back of it. Not much movement today which will please New Zealand with the batting they have to come, England will be desperate to score some runs when they get into bat, whenever that may be.

Start of New Zealand Innings. Welcome to the second test between New Zealand and England, taking place in Hamilton. After the first match England will want revenge on the home team, their first match at the Bay Oval ended in New Zealand winning by an innings and 65 runs, all aspects of the visitors performance was lacking, with their batting being the main problem, failing to score enough in the first innings, and in the second innings, failing to keep their wicket as New Zealand looked to win the match late on. As for the bowling, conceding 615 in one innings is never a good start, heads dropped as Watling and Santner fought back with a huge 261 run partnership. For New Zealand, a terrific performance with bat and ball with seam dominating the first innings, then Santner and Wagner tearing England's rescue apart in the second. Root is under pressure this match, he needs a big performance to ease the pressure on not only him but the rest of the England batters, the batting has been ill-disciplined for a while, a big couple of innings' here will do them a world of good. New Zealand will look to seal this series up with a win in Hamilton, Williamson and Taylor will want to improve on their batting and relieve the bowlers with Boult being unavailable for this test as a result of injury.

OUT! Bowled. Neil Wagner to Stuart Broad. Slower ball yorker, off stump on the front foot defending, missed to. Broad gone! His innings didn't last long, Wagner with the five-for, England with a lead of 101. Good innings from England, especially Root, Burns and Pope who all played a crucial role in England's first innings, a collapse at the end from the tail means England don't have a lead that will challenge New Zealand. Now for the home team the target is to bat and bat long, they have four sessions now to get through without any problems and with the batting they have and the pitch it looks likely they will bat out the rest of this game.

Lunch on day four, the perfect session for England, after the first few overs of variable bounce which they just about dealt with, after that, they went on the attack and came out on top. Some questions on the slow run rate but credit to New Zealand with the tight lines they have bowled. Pope near his first fifty for England and Root nearing to his double hundred, they both had to dig in and have done.

Matt Henry to Ollie Pope. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot Steer, to deep backward point for 2 runs, fielded by Santner. Day 4 is coming up in Hamilton with things hanging in the balance, 106 runs separate England from New Zealand with two full innings left to be played. It's looking like this match will be drawn with so much cricket left to be played in so little time. Root is at the crease with Pope after a few late wickets before rain halted play for the second time. The big moment yesterday came when Burns got run out after going for a two, that gave New Zealand a chance to bowl at a new batter and they capitalised, Stokes was dismissed for just 26, then Crawley, on debut only made 1. Root dug in yesterday for a hard fought ton which was his first since February, this, along with Burns' century set England up nicely. New Zealand should go into this day with some confidence because of the rain which means England only have two full days to get a result if they want to tie the series up.

Matt Henry to Ollie Pope. Out-swinging length ball, outside off stump on the front foot shoulders arms, shoulders arms to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Watling. Rain has stopped play in Hamilton in the closing stages of day three, it looks like we will either have only a few minutes at the end of the day to play or play will be halted until day four. Stumps on day three after rain stopped play midway through the last session, a decent day for England but not the best, Root and Burns with tons to their name but Burns will be kicking himself with that run out, Root with a much needed century to keep New Zealand at bay today, he will resume day four on 114 with Pope at the other end on four. New Zealand bowled really well and have kept England still needing 106 to level the scores in their first innings, a draw is looking more and more likely now with the rain causing delays to the game which would mean New Zealand win the series 1-0, can England stop that from happening?

OUT! Run Out. Neil Wagner to Rory Burns. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot working, to mid wicket for 1 run, by Watling. Big wicket! Burns with a huge error just after he gets his ton, two was the call, Burns slow for the first struggles to make his ground for the second, a long time to make the decision but the third umpire gives him out. Poor dismissal for Burns, he will be annoyed at himself for giving his wicket away so softly. The big partnership is broken, Stokes comes in now just before tea with a big 25 minutes to play. Credit to Raval his throw was the perfect height for Watling to take the bails off quickly.
