OUT! L.B.W. Neil Wagner to Stuart Broad. Full toss, to leg no foot movement defending, hit pad to. The double bluff works! Broad is pinned in front first ball. A field is set that is so clear that the short ball should have been coming, but Wagner fires it in full and straight. Broad is timid and deep in the crease, and misses a full toss. Simple decision for the umpire, it was plumb. A review taken, but just in hope.A terrific performance from the home side. Utterly dominant from day three onwards, and they have battered England here. The highlights across the Test were BJ Watling's double century, and Mitchell Santner's maiden hundred. Neil Wagner starred with the ball today to pick up a five wicket haul, too. Not many positives for the visitors, who are still struggling in this format of the game. They need to improve if they want to compete at this level.The Kiwis go 1-0 up in the two match series. The next one begins on Friday, and that will be played at Seddon Park.

OUT! Caught (Sub). Neil Wagner to Jofra Archer. Short, outside off stump on the back foot hooking, in the air uncontrolled to fine leg. No surprise to who gets the breakthrough. Neil Wagner is so reliable for New Zealand in the second innings of a Test. Banged into the pitch, Jorfa is a happy puller, but gets right underneath this. Lifted away straight down the throat of long leg. Regulation catch for the sub fielder. Only one more needed for the Kiwis.

FOUR! Neil Wagner to Jofra Archer. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed past deep extra cover for 4 runs. Dismissive from Jofra! He presses forward, and dispatches a cover drive to the fence. Lovely.

Tim Southee to Jofra Archer. Half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, to deep extra cover for 2 runs, mis-fielded by Williamson. Do England have a slither of hope with these two at the crease? They can certainly both bat, but there's a lot of overs still to be bowled.
