New Zealand v England: second Test, day three

England's Jonny Bairstow and Jack Leach

England had slumped to 164-7 in its first innings after losing the toss before Bairstow shared partnerships of 95 with Mark Wood (52) for the eighth wickets and 47 with Jack Leach (16) for the ninth.

Bairstow's rallying innings of 101 allowed England to add 143 runs for its last three wickets and reach 307 in its first innings and his four catches sent New Zealand to tea on the second day at 123-5.

England were able to eek out one more wicket, however, before bad light brought play to a slightly premature end, as Broad found the edge of a crestfallen De Grandhomme's bat late in the day.

Bairstow was largely responsible for rallying England after it struggled against New Zealand seamers Trent Boult and Tim Southee on the first day.

Bairstow is painfully close to a fifth Test ton, employing aggression against Neil Wagner and Ish Sodhi in particular in a 154-ball knock which has comprised 11 fours and a six.

Cook made two, his third single-figure innings in succession, bowled down the wrong line to extend a wretched sequence that reads two half-centuries in 20 Test innings, one tempered only by the fact that both of those half-centuries became double centuries.

The agency had no prior history with the family, said Norah West, a spokeswoman with the Department of Social and Health Services. Hart told police that she had spanked the child over behavioral issues. "They go to the store and back but.", Dana said.

Bairstow fell in the following over when a ramp shot over third man off Boult was caught by Ross Taylor in the deep.

England resumed batting on day two on 290 for 8 but could only add 17 runs to their overnight score. Broad picked up three in one of his more incisive opening spells of recent times, bowling quickly and challenging the batsmen with an attacking, full length. "Yes, we might leak a few more runs in that first 10 overs than we usually do, but to create those extra chances is the gameplan".

All-rounder Ben Stokes also returned to the bowling crease after a back injury, sending down three overs before stumps and giving England more cause for satisfaction.

Hello. Stuart Broad's career has been defined by matchwinning performances.

"My stride pattern, everything from my bowling today, I felt in full control", he said.

England made the new ball count with Broad (4-38) having Tom Latham (0) caught behind in the second over and in the fifth over James Anderson (2-43) removed Jeet Raval (5) in the same fashion. This time too they picked 10 scalps between them.

Former England spinner Graeme Swann on TMS: "I was pleased with the way Leach bowled, but disappointed with how little patience England had in the middle period".
