A jumbo 236-run partnership for the fifth wicket between Daryl Mitchell and Tom Blundell left the England bowlers demoralized as New Zealand reinforced their hold on the second Test. Both Mitchell and Blundell registered hundreds as New Zealand headed into Lunch on Day 2 at Trent Bridge, Nottingham at 412/5. Blundell’s wicket late in the session brough some relief for England, who continued to leak runs as 94 came in the morning session off 27 overs, including 15 boundaries.
