Day1: Brendon McCullum gets 97 NZ 208/6
How valuable is this player to the team? NZ in all sorts of trouble at 100 odd for five and once again a middle order player saves our bacon as New Zealand finishes the day at 208/6. A brilliant innings of 97 has not only kept the Blackcaps innings alive, but they have kept their chances in this test alive.
If Vettori and Oram and then Southee can go on with it, NZ might push part 300, and with the ball swinging like crazy, young Southee could have a very happy Lord's experience indeed.
