He then sent down just two on day one in Hamilton, a spell which left him clutching the joint and grimacing in pain.

But from resuming the day at 39 for two and taking the score to 201, the dismissal of Burns triggered a slump that saw Ben Stokes gone for 26 while Zak Crawley made one on debut.

Joe Root ended a poor run of form when he scored his 17th Test century and led England to 269-5 before rain ended play early on the third day of the second Test against New Zealand at Seddon Park in Hamilton on Sunday. To win this match, England need to score a considerable amount of runs today all at a good pace, otherwise the game will head towards a draw.

England made two significant changes to the team chasing victory to square the two-match series, having been thrashed by an innings and 65 runs in Mount Maunganui.

"When we won the toss and bowled, it was not to bowl New Zealand out for 150 - it was a 330, 350 and then bat once to try and win the game. We thought it would be our best chance to take 20 wickets in five days, by bowling first".

New Zealand started Day 2 at a healthy position on 173 for three but England did well to bowl them out for a total below 400. "But I'm obviously really pleased with the two scalps, the two big players for them".

Instead he intends to stick with 34-year-old Fernandinho as his first-choice centre-half. Sometimes the club wants to try to do the best but sometimes we can not .

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.

Dropped twice the night before, Burns remained streaky, offering several edges which flew past or landed short of fielders, but he also played some assertive shots to reach his second test century.

He brought up his century with successive boundaries off Neil Wagner, moving from 95 to 99 with a leg glance. Contemplating that England have misplaced an away sequence to West Indies earlier this yr and did not win the Ashes, and are actually wanting like dropping to New Zealand does recommend that Root hasn't been on top of things.

The pair went past half-centuries before lunch and after that there were remarkably few alarms for a side whose batting has been constantly under scrutiny as Burns and Root settled into a patient rhythm.

Root's 177-run stand alongside Burns came a day after England seamer Stuart Broad had said: "If you're a batsman, you'd want to bat out there".

Latham was on 101 when the rain swept in just three deliveries after the resumption of play from the tea break. 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 hard chance, on 19 by Jeet Raval at midwicket off Southee.
