New Zealand needed a safe start followed by quick runs with a first innings lead of 239 to set England a tough target of 400-plus, but fell back after third inning jitters from batsmen Hamish Rutherford, Kane Williamson and Ross Taylor, Stuff.co.nz reports.
According to the report, Stuart Broad (2-7) enticed a looping edge from Hamish Rutherford (0) with James Anderson (1-11) chopping of the bottom edge from Kane Williamson (1).
Ross Taylor(3), who was also trapped by Broad, challenged via the decision review system but never looked a chance of getting it overturned, the report further said.
However, the hosts managed to save their faces with a career best 6-68 wicket haul by paceman Trent Boult, which led New Zealand to stumps on 35-3, leading England by 274 after Black Caps captain Brendon McCullum chose not to enforce the follow-on, the report added.
