Dan Lawrence was hitting impressively in a tricky situation. Seize his chance, bowlers must not be allowed to take complete control

It’s been a classy kick from Dan Lawrence so far, but Ole Stone (52 balls) and Mark Wood (58 so far) have done a great job sticking with it. England have targeted more running from their players this summer and these two prove why it matters #ENGvNZ

Dan Lawrence played the seams incredibly late today. His average interception point is 1.68 meters from the trunks – the lowest, and therefore the latest, of any English batsman.#ENGvNZ
