England Takes Control of Cricket Test After New Zealand SlumpPeter-Joseph Hegarty
England took control on day three of the second cricket Test after dismissing New Zealand for 174 in its first innings.
Earlier, England was all out for 354 after resuming on 337-7 at Headingley, Leeds. It included 104 by Joe Root, playing on his home ground as he made his first Test century.
England’s Graeme Swann took 4-42, while New Zealand’s top scorer Peter Fulton got 28 runs. England didn’t enforce the “follow on” and by close of play today had reached 116-1, with captain Alastair Cook 88 not out. That gave the hosts a lead of 296 runs. Jonathan Trott is on 11.
Rain wiped out play on the opening day of the match. England leads the two-match series 1-0 following its 170-run win at Lord’s in London.
