While Tom Latham looked assured with his technique, Devon Conway was regularly troubled by the new-ball pair of Anderson and Ollie Robinson as New Zealand made a cautious start to their second essay after being bowled out for 209 in the first, on Sunday. The openers, however, found their groove after seeing off the new ball and brought fifty each.
Earlier in the day, resuming the innings on 138 for 7, New Zealand pressed the accelerator courtesy Tim Southee’s counterpunch, a method that had served the New Zealand vice captain well on Day 2. After having hammered Stuart Broad for a couple of sixes last evening, he took the attack to Jack Leach on Sunday morning. Thanks to his vital lower-order contribution, New Zealand could push their total past 200 as England enforced the follow-on.
