22:40 (IST)

NZ vs ENG live score: Eng 103/7. So far so good. A little resistance at play as Ollie Stone and Mark Wood stay put and fight hard. But there are nine overs left, the question is will Eng lose today itself.

22:04 (IST)

NZ vs ENG live score: Eng 76/6--Will this game end today? England fans were back at the stadium to watch live cricket after a gap of more than a year and some of them just couldn’t hold back their rowdyism and went on a rampage at the Edgbaston where England are taking on New Zealand in the second Test match.

21:46 (IST)

NZ vs ENG live score: Eng 71/6----WICKET! England are falling apart, they have just lost James Bracey who was never in good form right from ball one. Patel with the wicket and previously some insane bowling from Wagner made sure England are reduced to 58/5. They still trail by 14 runs. What happens now.

21:17 (IST)

21:06 (IST)

NZ vs ENG live score: Eng 46/3---Another one has bitten the dust. In comes skipper Joe Root with England in crisis. But this is also an opportunity for him to deliver when the odds are heavily stacked against England. Welcome Back after Tea.

20:15 (IST)

NZ vs ENG live score: Eng 17/2--That's TEA! NZ are on top. They not only managed to get an 85 run lead when it looked like they will have it for less than 55; they have also removed both the English openers. They are really looking like a force to reckon with slip cordon complementing the pacers really well. Meanwhile still trail by 67 and their top order are not in the best of forms.

20:07 (IST)

Henry gets another one...Sibley gone. ENG 17/2!

19:51 (IST)

19:39 (IST)

NZ vs ENG live score: NZ 388 All Out---WICKET! It is done, finally! NZ are all out, no more batsman in there and the tail was wagging it was getting frustrating. The lead was 50 when the ninth wicket fell. The tail-enders added quick 38 runs and could have been much more if England didn't take that reveiw.

19:26 (IST)

NZ vs ENG live score: NZ 375/9---14 runs coming off that over and mind you these are crucial runs. The final pair is there but it seems the tail might wag here. England need to nip this in the bud or it can be dangerous. NZ lead is now 68.

NZ vs ENG live score: NZ 361/8---The ECB board met Wednesday, when they decided to look into the issue in more detail, with a statement issued Saturday saying, “The board agreed to the executive’s recommendation for a social media review to address any historical issues, remind individuals of their personal responsibilities going forward, and help them learn lessons along the way."

“The board was clear that this process would not prevent further disciplinary action in the future, should that be required, under the applicable processes, but it is hoped that the game can emerge from this difficult period stronger and determined to be more inclusive and welcoming to all," the statement said.

19:03 (IST)

Eng 356/8

18:49 (IST)

Live cricket score New Zealand vs England: NZ 353/7: We might be looking at NZ tail but they still have Blundell in the middle who is an excellent batsman. He looks set and into his thirties. Meanwhile the visitors have a lead which is more than 50 at this point.

18:34 (IST)

Live cricket score New Zealand vs England: NZ 336/7: Back to back wickets in back to back overs. First Stone got rid of Mitchell and then Anderson removed Neil Wagner. Suddenly now the tail is exposed and Joe Root would now go for the kill. The lead, if kept under 50, can be called slender in this day and age.

18:18 (IST)

Live cricket score New Zealand vs England: NZ 328/5: We are back after Lunch and here's a starter if you are an England cricketer. The England and Wales Cricket Board is to launch a “social media review" that could lead to widespread disciplinary action following the fall-out from Ollie Robinson’s Twitter posts. The Sussex seamer was suspended from England duty pending an investigation after historic racist and sexist posts made in 2012 and 2013 re-emerged during his Test debut against New Zealand at Lord’s last week. Since Robinson’s posts re-emerged, the social media feeds of a number of internationals have been scrutinised, with an unnamed player found to have sent offensive tweets while under the age of 16.

17:36 (IST)

Live cricket score New Zealand vs England: NZ 326/5: LUNCH--That will be Lunch and NZ go into the pavillion with a lot of content. They have managed to get a slender 23-run lead but that's enough because the pitch looks flat and with five wickets intact, it's their game to lose from here.

17:16 (IST)

Live cricket score New Zealand vs England: NZ 313/5: WICKET---Another big breakthrough for England as Henry Nicholls departs. England need the wickets and the momentum as we approach Tea.

17:05 (IST)

16:55 (IST)

NZ Closing in on Eng 303.

16:41 (IST)

NZ vs ENG live score: NZ 292/4--WICKET! Ross Taylor dismissed...just after drinks. A break in the momentum can be so fatal sometimes. He departs and Edgbaston erupts. So does Ollie Stone who bowled a beauty. Pitched on off, it just deviated to kiss Taylor's bat. Easy catch by the stumper. England are pumped up, they needed a respite and they have got one.

16:34 (IST)

NZ vs ENG live score: NZ 292/3. DRINKS. What an eventful first half of the first session at Edgbaston. Ross Taylor is hell bent on up the scoring rate. Some dropped catches only helped him. And now England's 303 is looking little and little with every moment. Will Taylor get to a century, he deserves it.

16:14 (IST)

Live cricket score New Zealand vs England: NZ 270/3: What an eventful over by Stuart Broad. Ross Taylor is just on the charge and wants NZ to cover the 1st innings deficit which is just 40 runs. He is hooking and pulling Broad, all in all he is not going to hold back. Meanwhile a DRS decision goes begging and a wayward deliuvery fetches a boundary to NZ. Good Test match this.

16:03 (IST)

NZ on the charge; 262/3.

15:40 (IST)

Live cricket score New Zealand vs England: And with two back to back fours off Lawrence, Ross Taylor gets to yet another fifty. He has a tendency of going about his job quietly, and that's what he has done. The score now moves to 243/3.

15:33 (IST)

NZ vs ENG live score: Henry Nicholls and Ross Taylor would like to take the team off to a great start here. They are just 70 runs behind England as the score moves to 233-3.

“I have no doubt that England’s cricketers will be able to focus on the matter at hand at Edgbaston — winning a Test series against New Zealand," Hussain wrote in a column in Daily Mail. “Yes, they have had a lot to deal with since the Ollie Robinson tweets emerged. But these guys are professionals and there’s too much at stake from a cricketing point of view for them to be distracted. There are places to play for and five-Test series against India and Australia on the horizon," he said.

The England cricket team has too much at stake in the second Test against New Zealand to lose focus and get distracted by the Ollie Robinson tweets issue of the first Test, says its former captain Nasser Hussain. The second Test began at Edgbaston here on Thursday. The first match had ended in a draw.

ENG vs NZ 2021 Live Cricket Score, 2nd Test, Day 3 Today’s Match at Edgbaston, Birmingham: That’s Stumps!And England survive. They lost a number of wickets and when it seemed, NZ will wrap up the game tonight itself, Anderson just managed to hang in there. But they are just 37 runs ahead and this game is as good as over for them.

Conway helped put New Zealand in a commanding position on the second day of the second test at Edgbaston on Friday. At stumps, New Zealand were 229 for 3 in response to England’s 303 all out, with Ross Taylor unbeaten on 46. Young fell at the stroke of stumps for 82. Conway had made 80. New Zealand lost Tom Latham lbw to Stuart Broad for just 6 but reached 43-1 at lunch, Devon Conway and Will Young triggering a revival. There was an interesting moment when Conway edged Broad to slip, but inconclusive replays for the low catch meant the on-field soft signal of not out stayed.

Conway survived, and Young did too when Joe Root dropped a sitter at first slip off the bowling of Olly Stone with the batsman on 7. As England rued the missed chances, Young and Conway added 122 for the second wicket, Conway crossing his half-century. He looked set for a ton before he whipped a ball off his pads to deep square leg, giving Broad his second wicket. It wasn’t the best of deliveries but a crucial strike. But the wicket wouldn’t bring England any immediate respite, as Taylor and Young joined hands for another big partnership. The two seemed set to take New Zealand to stumps, but a maiden Test wicket for Dan Lawrence ended Young’s stay. He was caught bat-pad at the stroke of stumps However, the 98-run stand has set the base for New Zealand to capitalise further. Earlier, Dan Lawrence and Mark Wood helped to push England to 303 runs in its first innings before New Zealand bowled out the hosts.

Wood, resuming on 16 not out, swung away and entertained a lively home crowd with six boundaries before edging a delivery from Matt Henry (3-78) onto his stumps to finish on 41. That got England to 288-8, adding 30 runs since play resumed. England reached 303-9 on Lawrence’s four after Stuart Broad lasted just four balls for his 37th duck in test cricket. Trent Boult (4-85) finished off James Anderson leg before wicket after the original call was overturned on review. England’s most-capped test player scored four runs from 16 balls. Lawrence, who had resumed on 67, was unbeaten on 81 to match England opener Rory Burns’ runs total from Thursday. The teams played to a draw at Lord’s in the first of two tests. The Black Caps had made six changes from the first test including the late, injury-enforced withdrawal of wicketkeeper B.J. Watling. The tourists chose to rotate ahead of the World Test Championship final against India, which is their priority and starts on June 18.
