  • England win by 170 runs

    Astonishing. A thumping win for England in the end after three-and-a-bit days of intense, hard-fought and competitive cricket. England needed only two bowlers (and a comedy run out) to wrap up victory an hour into the afternoon session on a ludicrous fourth day's play.
  • WICKET! Wagner run out (Bairstow) 16

    Magnificent end to the match. Wagner slogs a short ball from Anderson to long-leg where a steepling catch is dropped. Bairstow grabs the ball and flings it back to the bowler's end after the batsmen decide too late against taking a second run. Wagner stumbles, Anderson gathers, off come the bails.
  • Over 22 - New Zealand 67/9 (Wagner 15)

    Billy Root should get an assist for that wicket. Superb piece of fielding to stop Wagner getting back for a second run, which allowed Broad to knock Martin over.
  • WICKET! Martin b Broad 1

    Brilliant fielding from Root the Younger at long-leg keeps Wagner to a single from a pull shot and gives Broad a chance to bowl at Martin. He uproots the middle stump, along with much of the kit that works the stump camera.
  • Over 21 - New Zealand 66/8 (Wagner 14, Martin 1)

    Wagner having a bit of fun anyway. A couple of swings and misses before he chips Anderson over mid-on and gets three Martin-hurting runs to become top-scorer in the innings.
  • Over 20 - New Zealand 61/8 (Wagner 11, Martin 0)

    The first Investec Bank Maximum (I assume that's what they're called) of the Test as Wagner pulls Broad over Root the Younger at deep square-leg. Another swipe to leg brings Wagner a single. That six meant he became only the second Kiwi, after Watling, into double figures in this innings. Martin plays and misses at the last two balls of the over. His injury has left him with almost zero footwork, which makes things tricky at the best of times; when the ball's seaming and swinging like this it's almost impossible.
  • Over 19 - New Zealand 54/8 (Wagner 4, Martin 0)

    As Watling hobbles off, Bruce Martin hobbles on. He's nursing a calf injury and I'm not sure what purpose him batting here serves other than to make it even harder for him to recover in time for Headingley on Friday.
  • WICKET! Watling c Trott b Anderson 13

    Another Anderson special as his outswinger squares Watling up to find the outside edge, and Tott does the rest at third slip. Smart low catch in the end, and England now just two wickets away from victory.
  • Over 18 - New Zealand 54/7 (Watling 13, Wagner 4)

    Watling thrashes a cut shot to deep point and uncomfortably makes his way to the non-striker's end to leave Wagner back in the firing line. Big cheers for New Zealand's 50. Wagner gets off the mark in pleasing style with a driven boundary through the offside as Broad overpitches.
  • Over 17 - New Zealand 49/7 (Watling 12, Wagner 0)

    Watling takes a single from the first ball of Anderson's over. Anderson then tries to set Wagner up with a couple of outswingers but gets the inswinger wrong and fires it down the legside.
  • Over 16 - New Zealand 48/7 (Watling 11, Wagner 0)

    New Zealand avoid the ignominy of the lowest Test score at Lord's as Watling drives down the ground for two and then cuts hard past point for four. Broad fails to field Watling's defensive push from the final ball of the over, so New Zealand's hobbling keeper will keep the strike.
  • WICKET! Southee c Root b Broad 7

    Air of farce about proceedings now. Anderson shells an absolute sitter at second slip to give Southee a life as Cook tries and fails to cling on to the rebound. Southee takes full advantage of the reprieve by slapping the next ball straight down Root's throat at deep square-leg.
  • Over 15 - New Zealand 41/6 (Watling 4, Southee 7)

    Good shot from Southee, picking Anderson's inswinger and biffing it through midwicket for three. Sure Watling and his knee are thrilled about that. Watling hobbles a leg-bye from the next ball before Southee slogs a straight ball into the legside for a single. Much oohs and aahs from the slip cordon. All over had he missed it.
  • Over 14 - New Zealand 36/6 (Watling 4, Southee 3)

    Southee's policy of spooning the ball up in the air is a bold and unusual choice. He sends a flat-footed drive just short of point before spooning a drive just over cover for a single as his field-teasing efforts continue.
  • Over 13 - New Zealand 35/6 (Watling 4, Southee 2)

    Slice of luck for Southee who fends at an Anderson short ball and sends an edge looping into the offside but landing short of gully. The next ball is worked to leg for a single before Watling gets four with a cut shot wide of a diving gully. The on-screen graphic has switched from a list of highest fourth-innings run-chases at Lord's to lowest totals. India's 42 all out in 1974 still to be surpassed here.
  • Over 12- New Zealand 30/6 (Watling 0, Southee 1)

    Tim Southee, who started the morning taking three wickets to complete a 10-wicket match haul, starts the afternoon with a bat in his hand. Thick inside edge gets him a single before Broad beats Watling's outside edge to complete the over interrupted by McCullum's pre-lunch dismissal.
  • Betting

    At the start of New Zealand's innings, England were 1/2 for victory at Sky Bet and New Zealand 13/8. A crazy hour later, the hosts are 1/1000 and the tourists 66/1.
  • Stats

    In that session, Broad scored 79% of England's 33 runs and then took 83% of their six wickets. Quite good.
  • Lunch, New Zealand 29/6

    Unreal session of cricket. Ten wickets have fallen for 62 runs. A bowler from each side has completed a 10-wicket haul. England now just four wickets away from what now appears a logic-defyingly easy victory. Great game, this Test cricket. Think it could catch on.
  • WICKET! McCullum lbw b Broad 8

    Stunning end to a stunning session as a Broad nip-backer hits McCullum in front of off stump and Steve Davis raises the finger. McCullum reviews - as he had to do in the situation - but Hawk-Eye can't save him. In the blink of an eye, Broad becomes the second addition of the morning for the honours board.
