It was a nightmare of a start for England on the first day of the first Test. They came out to bat and stuck in the middle for just over an hour and 33 minutes. New Zealand’s Trent Boult made the most of the pink-ball and recorded figures of 6/32 to dismantle the visitor’s top order. His partner Tim Southee took care of things on the other end, taking four wickets as England were bowled out for 58. Five England batsmen got out for duck as they recorded their 6th worst total in Test cricket. Coming in to bat, New Zealand too lost Jeet Raval early with James Anderson getting the wicket. Kane Williamson struck his27th Test fifty. Tom Latham and Ross Taylor departed after Dinner. Williamson and Henry Nicholls took New Zealand to 175/3 at stumps on Day 1, lead by 117 runs.
