New Zealand dismissed for 370 in second Test
CHRISTCHURCH – Nathan Lyon grabbed two wickets after tea to help wrap up New Zealand’s first innings in the second test after Brendon McCullum and Corey Anderson had rescued their side with a blistering counter-attack after lunch.
Lyon finished with 3-61 as New Zealand were dismissed for 370 with McCullum having scored the world’s fastest test century from 54 balls, hitting 16 fours and four sixes to reach 100 as he beat the previous mark by two balls.
Anderson, who combined with McCullum in a 179-run partnership, scored 72 before he became Lyon’s first wicket shortly before tea at Hagley Oval.
McCullum was dismissed for 145, with wicketkeeper BJ Watling last man out for 58, his 11th test half century, as the hosts posted a target that earlier seemed improbable when they had been reduced to 32 for three in the first session. –Reuters
