126.1 OUT! Caught. Todd Astle to James Anderson. Leg spinner half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to mid off, by Boult. Astle finishes it off for a famous victory for New Zealand. He tossed it up and Jimmy thought he could slap it through cover but was too early on the shot. Easiest of catches for Trent Boult at mid off.

What a Test match this has turned out to be and finished under lights with a tremendous atmosphere. New Zealand started off on fire bowling England out for 58 but two days of rain nearly cost them a victory. Lots of brilliant performances throughout with two centuries while Trent Boult finished with nine wickets, not forgetting Wagner who has steamed in ball after ball with some hostile stuff.

England know where it was lost and after the first innings it would have needed something special for them to get a result out of the game. There is some minor injury concerns in the camp as well as they move to Hagley Oval. They will need a much better showing if they are to tie up this two game series.
