Rain delay in Hamilton, that almost ends it with the stoppage you can't see either side getting a result out of this, in the current session Taylor advances onto 105 after three boundaries in a row just before the rain stopped play, Williamson there with him on 104. The deck is flat the ball is old and not moving off the seam or in the air so runs are easy to come by and maintaining your wicket has been simple, not much for England to play for with heavy showers coming through for the next hour or so. After a couple of hours of waiting for a call the umpires finally call it a draw, New Zealand win the two match series 1-0 after winning the first game at the Bay Oval. England nearly got a result here, rain was their biggest enemy after it stopped four sessions worth of play which would've been enough for a result. Hundreds all over the place on this road with Root, Latham, Burns, Taylor and Williamson all picking up triple figure scores. As for the series, England will be happy with the batting aspect of the first innings in Hamilton, getting their first score over 400 in two years, Pope looked good in Hamilton as well, batting for a patient 75. As for the bowling, the tracks England bowled on weren't the friendliest and so judging their bowling would be unfair, I think more than anything the tempo in the field was lacking and that effected the bowling, and that allowed New Zealand to post a big score at the Bay Oval, England did get into good positions in both games but failed to seal the final couple of batters to reduce the New Zealand scores. England move onto South Africa whilst New Zealand travel to Australia for a big three test series against their biggest rivals.

Taylor with a century! Class batting from him to see off the threat yesterday and score efficiently with Williamson whilst playing risk free batting, these two have put on 213 together and don't look like getting out now.

74.4 - J Root to R Taylor

Off break length ball, down leg side on the front foot slog sweeping, well timed in the air under control over deep mid wicket for 6 runs.

That six moves Taylor onto 99, huge slog-sweep, Taylor knows the rain is coming and might end the game early so he doesn't want to end it without scoring a ton.

74.3 - J Root to R Taylor

Off break length ball, down leg side on the front foot slog sweeping, well timed in the air under control over deep square leg for 6 runs.

Taylor not messing about here, he wants to get his ton quickly, he heaves this one into the gap on the leg-side, not much danger involved with mid-wicket free.

74.2 - J Root to R Taylor

Off break length ball, down leg side on the front foot slog sweeping, well timed past deep mid wicket for 4 runs.
