Daryl Mitchell smashes one over long off to bring up another half-century in the series against England. He has been New Zealand's saviour on this tour and he is undertaking the repair job again with aplomb. That six also brought up the fifty-run partnership with Tom Blundell, and the duo seems adamant on frustrating the hosts again. From a precarious position at 123/5, the right-handed pair has taken New Zealand to 215/5. They are stepping into safer shores but the task is incomplete as of now. The Kiwis would hope their alliance grows from strength to strength.
