commentary

Over 170. 1 run. Bowler: Neil Wagner. England: 421/6(rr 2.48)

Wagner to Bell. Short, middle stump ducked, left to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Watling. With fifteen overs left in the day, McCullum offers his hand to the batsmen and England have escaped with a draw, largely thanks to a poor pitch for cricket. After the first day was washed out England somehow contrived to throw their first innings away, being skittled for just 167 with the majority of the batsmen getting themselves out. The pitch was put into perspective by Hamish Rutherford, who scored more runs on his own than the entire first innings of the tourists. His winnings was backed up by a resolute return from Peter Fulton and an attacking innings from the skipper which left England a long way behind and with the best part of two days to bat. Any real fears of losing the game were put to bed after an opening stand of 231. Cook fell just before the close of Day 4 to offer New Zealand some hope but Steven Finn dug in and batted for over 280 minutes for his maiden Test fifty to snuff out any chance of a result. The series moves onto Wellington later this week with a better pitch for the bowlers expected.
