Hello and welcome to Sportstar's live coverage from Day 4 of the second Test between England and New Zealand at Edgbaston.

Matt Henry took three top-order wickets to leave New Zealand on the brink of a series-clinching win as England's batsmen failed miserably in the second and final Test at Edgbaston on Saturday.

England, on a good batting pitch, was 122-9 in its second innings at stumps on the third day -- just 37 runs ahead of New Zealand with one wicket standing and two days left to play. Even so, that still represented a recovery from an even more embarrassing 76-7.

Henry, one of an exceptional six changes to the New Zealand side that drew the first Test at Lord's, took the first three wickets to fall en route to fine figures of 3-36 in 12 overs.
