Stuart Broad struck to end a 45-run partnership between Daryl Mitchell and Tom Blundell. It was the short ball and Blundell decided to take it on but ended up hitting it straight to Ben Stokes at backward square. Bracewell gathered two fours off Jack Leach in the next over as the lead crossed 200. It’s up to New Zealand’s fifth wicket pair again and they have built a watchful stand to keep the England bowlers at bay. Blundell was given out caught-behind off Leach but the batter reviewed and replays revealed no spike. New Zealand’s lead is over 175 now. Earlier, a horrible mix-up meant the half-centurion Will Young had to depart shortly after reaching the landmark.
Well well well…
