With BJ Watling, the architect of the first Test win, again holding the innings together New Zealand recovered from 191 for five to reach 375 in their first innings in Hamilton with Watling and debutant Daryl Mitchell featuring in a 124-run stand for the sixth wicket.

Burns - he of the obstinate stance, with his posterior pushed out and head cocked in defiance - had just bowed to his team-mates in recognition of his second test century when he was un-Ravaled.

Root was still there at the close and will resume on day four, alongside Ollie Pope, on four not out, looking to push England towards a first-innings lead which could determine the outcome of the contest and series. "When he bats like that, everyone is behind him and they know exactly what he can do". You can't get a six-for every time you step on the field.

He was aided by a Seddon Park wicket that didn't offer much to the New Zealand bowling attack, and is probably the biggest factor in the likely draw that awaits come Tuesday.

Argentina to face Chile in 2020 Copa America opener
The Socceroos' opening match will be against 15-time Copa America champions Uruguay and their star striker Luis Suarez on June 13. Argentina last won the Copa America in 1993 and the nation is desperate to finally get their hands on the trophy once again.


"Jofra has been a bit disappointed because he's used to making things happen in cricket", Broad said.

Captain Root put on 177 with opener Burns, who reached his second Test ton before being run out for 101.

"Rooty was nudging me and I just didn't get there".

With the Three Lions losing their first Test in New Zealand, captain Joe Root came into focus and demands for his removal from the job of leading the team became common.

Fall of wickets: 1-11 (Sibley), 2-24 (Denly), 3-201 (Burns), 4-245 (Stokes), 5-262 (Crawley). "But I'm obviously really pleased with the two scalps, the two big players for them". If we're able to grab a couple of wickets early then I guess it's up to us to finish it off. "I don't think the Kookaburra ball is his best friend at the minute but it will be when he realises that every away pitch isn't like these". But Root told journalists England were not in a position to name their side on the eve of the second Test with a question mark over Buttler, who tweaked a back muscle while exercising.

Woakes took two for 41 on his recall, having been left out of the innings-and-65-run defeat in Mount Maunganui which means this Test is a must-win if England are to square the series in their final obligation of this tour.

Root has seen his average as England skipper drop below 40 and has fallen out of the top 10 batting world rankings for the first time since 2014. Yes, he has played the odd good knock, including a brilliant hundred in spin-friendly conditions of Sri Lanka, but for a batsman of his quality, they are too few.

Rory Burns admits that he may have missed the opportunity to publish a major Test One after running out of 101 on Day Three in Hamilton.
