England burnt a review after Daryl Mitchell attempted a reverse sweep off Joe Root, with replays confirming there was no bat or glove involved. Tom Blundell then gets to his fifty, having been reprieved earlier by Root who put down a tough chance at slip. England then lose another review for a leg-before, with the third-umpire confirming the presence of wood on the way as the ball rapped the pads. New Zealand have also reached the 300 mark with plenty of overs still left in the day. England have lost many a chance due to poor groundwork, with Root being the culprit more than once.
