England v NZ photos day two

Jacob Oram

The second day opens with more difficult short deliveries from England's pace attack as New Zealand resume on 202-4

Ross Taylor

And the match continues in the same manner for Ross Taylor, taking boundaries off Sidebottom and Broad as he approaches a century

Daniel Vettori, Tim Ambrose

Two run outs in three balls include the tourists' captain Daniel Vettori carelessly not grounding his bat, leaving New Zealand 250-6

Tim Ambrose, Ross Taylor

Ross Taylor and Kyle Mills build a decent partnership as New Zealand worry about recalling Daniel Flynn who retired hurt on day one

Ross Taylor, James Anderson

Ross Taylor escapes being caught behind but it is New Zealand's performance, not England's, that dictates the morning session

Ross Taylor

Taylor makes his century from 130 balls, in 218 mins, including 13 fours and a six, with the Black Caps 322-6 at lunch

Kyle Mills

New Zealand's third wicket to fall is another batting mistake as Mills plays on to his stumps, out for 57 - his best in Test cricket

Ryan Sidebottom

A dejected Ryan Sidebottom watches four more overthrow runs on a day of three dropped catches and no maiden overs for England

Ross Taylor

Taylor heaves Sidebottom through mid-wicket and in to the second tier for one of five sixes on his way to 154 from 176 balls

Iain O'Brien

New Zealand are all out for 381 and Iain O'Brien takes an early England wicket as Alastair Cook is, somewhat unluckily, given out lbw

Andrew Strauss, Brendon McCullum, Ross Taylor

Fortunes even out for the home nation's batsmen as Andrew Strauss is done by the spin of Vettori but dropped by Taylor

Brendon McCullum, Andrew Strauss

Strauss and Michael Vaughan dig in and punish the occasional bad ball during a spell that sees the first consecutive maidens of the day

Andrew Strauss

Strauss makes a punchy half-century but is out for 60 to an excellent McCullum catch off the bowling of O'Brien

Brendon McCullum, Michael Vaughan

Vettori, bowling with the wind, beats the defensive stride of England captain Vaughan, who is trapped lbw

New Zealand team, Daniel Vettori (c)

Vettori is again celebrating as nightwatchman Ryan Sidebottom is caught by James How for 4 and England are 152-4 at stumps
