England will be relieved with the interval that has come in the form of the Tea break. They badly needed that to reassess the situation. The equation is down to another 177 runs for the hosts to win this Test. It can be done but they need Joe Root and Ben Stokes to bat longer in the final session. Right now, New Zealand definitely have their noses ahead. Kyle Jamieson has been the wrecker-in-chief, taking three wickets. Stokes then came out with an interesting approach – step out and play every ball – but was lucky to get a reprieve as Colin de Grandhomme overstepped.
