    Somebody needs to tell him to stop chasing wide deliveries.

    To be fair we complain that they don't stick around and give their wicket away.....he is at least still there

    Hopefully England can step on the gas after lunch. Decent effort and great to see Root back in to big numbers.

    Heading for a draw. Good opportunity for Pope to accumulate.

    I dunno. Day four/five get a spinner into the attack and maybe New Zealand could be skittled.

    We can always hope. But England don't have a front-line spinner in this game, and the Kiwis have six batsman with averages over 40.

    Any bets on when Root will declare? That's a tough one. Maybe half hour before close?

    I'd honestly be in no real rush to declare; I certainly wouldn't declare today if both of these two were to continue batting

    Things really turned round for England when the coach flew home.

    Finally Root gets among the runs. Though can't help but wonder if that has come at a wrong time - he surely needs to focus solely on batting and should be relived off of his captain duties. Nonetheless, that double hundred ought to give him a world of confidence.

    Good fightback by NZ too after losing two quick wickets. I say all three results still very much possible. Dare I say England might be even sniffing at victory if they can bowl NZ out before the 1st hour of the second session. Not ruling it out....
