Root, Burns score tons, take Eng land to striking distance of New Zealand total

Joe Root ended a poor run of form when he scored his 17th test century and led E...

Rory Burns (101) also scored his second test century and combined with his captain in a 177-run third wicket partnership that resurrected England’s first innings.

The final two days of the match are also expected to be affected by rain, increasing the chances that New Zealand will win their fifth successive test series at home in the last two years after they won the first game by an innings and 65 runs.

The England captain reached the milestone with successive boundaries off Neil Wagner in the next over.

Burns was the only wicket to fall in the first two sessions when he was run out two balls after he reached his century.

He flicked a delivery from Wagner to the leg side and jogged a single but was then called through for a second run by Root and despite almost making his ground he was unable to beat Jeet Raval’s flat throw from midwicket.

How the New Adam Driver Movie 'The Report' Turns Political Thrillers Inside Out'The Report' hits Amazon Prime today — how the new Adam Driver movie about the investigation into the CIA's torture program turns political thrillers inside out I watched last night. There are no heroes except for the Senate staffer played by Driver. Highly recommend. Hahaha. This just shows how sad humans really are. Everyone believes this movie written by Amazon is exactly what happen and like its not happening anymore. propaganda 😂😂😂
