au revoir

That's it for today folks, thanks again for joining us. We'll have our usual round-up of what you might have missed and our picks of the day on the news site shortly.

You can also review the day in pictures here.

See you tomorrow!

6:41pm

what a day

What an intriguing day of Test cricket that was, the advantage twisting and turning from one team to the next.

New Zealand started on top, England pushed towards a position of dominance with Root and Trott batting beautifully, before a late collapse left it in the ballance again.

Kane Williamson produced the ball of the day to dismiss Jonathan Trott and put the pressure firmly back on England.

Close

With every New Zealand fielder around the bat, Steven Finn blocks out the last over from Kane Williamson, who's getting some really sharp turn.

Graeme Swann will be watching closely, and with England having collapsed in that last hour, he may need to be at his best if the hosts are to win this match.

What a fascinating low-scoring Test this is turning out to be!

6:22pm

Tense times

England have lost four wickets for 12 runs in 39 balls. Wow, no wonder there's a close-up of Alastair Cook looking exceptionally disgruntled.

Ian Bell is at the crease now by the way. He didn't field earlier and has 'severe' flu.

Tim Southee has been the architecht of this England collapse.

6:17pm

Calypso calapso!

Fair play to Kane Williamson, this is a bit of a jaffer to remove Trott! A well flighted off break turns sharply up the slope beats Trott's drive, takes a slight inside edge and clips the top of middle stump.

Poetry for an off spinner, disaster for England.
