Day Three from the first Test

Day Three from the first Test”

Come the end of the day, though, and it was the New Zealand batsmen left needing to produce a fightback. England have the edge here after two days of play, with Kane Williamson gone for 51 and New Zealand resuming on 144-4, still some 200 runs behind.

However, New Zealand's top order didn't make the most of it. Jeet Raval - who had earlier dropped Buttler - continued his poor run of late, surviving multiple chances including an lbw review on 10, before some ungainly slogging off the bowling of Leach ended with him holing out to mid-wicket for an ugly 19.

BJ Watling as at the crease and made a fine hundred at Colombo in the last Test along with Henry Nicholls who scored an unbeaten 145 in the crushing victory over England at Eden Park in March 2018.

Santner had to stop signing autographs, leap the advertising hoardings and enter the playing area to take the catch, which appeared to contradict rules about player movement and a batter's right to know field placements.

Williamson, coming off a rough patch in Sri Lanka where he averaged eight from three innings, found the New Zealand conditions much more to his liking when he entered the fray after Latham's dismissal.

Ross Taylor weathered a feisty spell from Jofra Archer to reach 25 before he was deceived by the slightly slower pace of Stokes and popped a short ball to Ollie Pope at square leg.

Wicket time: England's Sam Curran strikes early for his team as Tom Latham departs in controversial circumstances. Jos Buttler's 43, and 52-run stand with Leach for the ninth wicket, helped Joe Root's side reach a competitive 353.

Buttler's partnership with Leach thwarted New Zealand's push to bowl them out before lunch after Tim Southee sparked a mini-collapse with three quick wickets and a sharp catch in the slips.
