WELLINGTON, New Zealand (Reuters) – Tim Southee and Matt Henry removed both England openers as New Zealand reduced the tourists to 39-2 and took control of the second Test by the close of play on the second day at Seddon Park in Hamilton yesterday.New Zealand had been dismissed for 375 about an hour after tea and hold a 336-run lead heading into the third day of a match that England need to win to level the two-Test series.Rory Burns was on 24 at the close of play, having survived two dropped catches, with captain Joe Root on six and looking uncomfortable at the crease as he battles with a precipitous drop in form over the last year.Opening batsman Dom Sibley was trapped in front by Southee for four to leave the tourists 11-1 before Joe Denly (four) was snapped up by wicketkeeper BJ Watling with a superb low catch off Henry to reduce them further to 24-2.England could have been even further in the mire at stumps with Burns dropped on 10 by Ross Taylor at first slip off Henry and again, from a more difficult chance, on 19 by Jeet Raval at midwicket off Southee.England’s pace attack had earlier dragged their side back into the game with a fiery spell of short-pitched bowling at New Zealand’s tail after Stuart Broad had broken a 124-run stand between debutant Daryl Mitchell (73) and Watling (55).“When I was sitting on zero I wasn’t that calm,” Mitchell said. “So it was nice to get a run and get started and the more time you spend out there the easier it does get.“But England bowled very well. They were very patient at times and built pressure and asked good questions.“We just had to grind it out for a period there and I was lucky enough to get a few runs.”New Zealand had been well set at 315-5 heading into tea before Broad removed first Test man-of-the-match Watling with the penultimate ball before the break.Broad then had Mitchell caught at deep fine leg by Jofra Archer about 20 minutes after play resumed in the final session.With the hosts’ bowlers prepared to take on the short-pitched deliveries, England quickly wrapped up the innings as mistimed shots from New Zealand’s batsmen ended up in the hands of the boundary fielders.NEW ZEALAND 1st inningsJeet Raval c Joe Root b Stuart Broad 5Tom Latham b Stuart Broad 105Kane Williamson c Joe Root b Chris Woakes 4Ross Taylor c Joe Root b Chris Woakes 53Henry Nicholls c Stuart Broad b Sam Curran 16BJ Watling c Rory Burns b Stuart Broad 55Daryl Mitchell c Jofra Archer b Stuart Broad 73Mitchell Santner c Chris Woakes b Jofra Archer 23Tim Southee c Ollie Pope b Chris Woakes 18Matt Henry not out 5Neil Wagner c Dominic Sibley b Sam Curran 0Extras (b-15, lb-3) 18Total: (all out, 129.1 overs) 375Fall of wickets: 1-16, 2-39, 3-155, 4-182, 5-191, 6-315, 7-330, 8-357, 9-375.Bowling: Stuart Broad 28-7-73-4, Jofra Arche 28-8-75-1, Chris Woakes 31-6-83-2, Sam Curran 23.1-7-63-2, Ben Stokes 13-5-36-0.ENGLAND 1st inningsRory Burns not out 24Dominic Sibley lbw Tim Southee 4Joe Denly c BJ Watling b Matt Henry 4Joe Root not out 6Extras: (lb-1) 1Total: (two wkts, 18.0 overs) 39Fall of wickets: 1-11, 2-24.Bowling: Tim Southee 8-1-24-1, Matt Henry 7-3-10-1,Neil Wagner 2-0-3-0, Daryl Mitchell 1-0-1.
