Hello and welcome to Sportstar's live updates from Day 3 of the first Test between England and New Zealand at Lord's.


Day 3

Rain plays spoilsport and takes away an entire day's play at Lord's.

Day 2 Summary

England finished day two on 111-2 and trails New Zealand by 267 runs in the first innings of the first test after Devon Conway's double ton took the game away from the home side on Thursday.

New Zealand was bowled out for 378 after lunch as England's fast bowlers cleaned up the middle order and tail but it was left frustrated by number 11 Neil Wagner (25 not out) who helped Conway set his record score.

Conway's 200 is the highest score on debut at Lord's and the opener reached the milestone with a six over long leg. He nearly carried his bat but became the last wicket to fall when he was run out by mere millimetres.
