25 May, 2015 5:47 pm

LONDON – James Anderson and Stuart Broad ripped out the New Zealand top order to give England the scent of victory in the first test at Lord’s on Monday.

Chasing 345 for victory, New Zealand opener Martin Guptill edged Anderson’s second ball of the innings to Gary Ballance at third slip.

Broad trapped Tom Latham lbw with his first delivery to reduce the touring side to nought for two and then dismissed Ross Taylor in the same manner to leave New Zealand in tatters at 12 for three.

Kane Williamson (seven not out) and BJ Watling (five not out) guided their side to the interval without further loss at 21 for three but England were closing in on a famous victory in an absorbing test match.

Earlier, New Zealand left-arm seamer Trent Boult picked up the last four wickets in under an hour to dismiss England for 478.


England resumed on 429 for six and Boult had England captain Alastair Cook caught by wicketkeeper Latham for 162 before bowling Broad for 10.

Moeen Ali was lbw for 43 and Anderson was bowled for nought to give Boult figures of five for 85 and nine wickets in the match.
