The Blackcaps batting once again collapsed, and have left England in a winning position after two days of the first test. How depressing. New Zealand looked in a great position thanks to 19 year old kid, Tim Southee, who got a fiver in his debut.
Sidebottom tore thru our batsman taking seven, Bell fell cheaply, Fleming made a start, but didn't go on with it, noone stood up as we were dismissed cheaply.
England finish the day 91/2, a lead of 176 with eight wickets and three days to spare.
The only hope for the Blackcaps is, if we can bundled them out for a lead of 300, and then make the runs, we need a hero.
