England vs New Zealand, 2nd Test, Day 2 Highlights: Ollie Pope hit a fine half-century as he and Alex Lees took England to 90/1 at Stumps on Day 2 of the second Test after New Zealand scored 553. Trent Boult struck early for New Zealand early as he removed Zak Crawley with the final ball of the second over. Earlier, Daryl Mitchell played a 190-run knock while Tom Blundell scored 106 as New Zealand posted 553 runs on the board in the first innings of the ongoing second Test against England at Trent Bridge. For England, James Anderson returned with three wickets while Stuart Broad, Jack Leach and Ben Stokes took two each. New Zealand had resumed Day 2 at the overnight score of 318/4. Earlier, Mitchell and Tom Blundell helped New Zealand recover from quick blows on Day 1. Opener Tom Latham and Will Young had earlier given New Zealand a strong start as the pair stitched 84 runs for the opening stand. However, both were dismissing off consecutive deliveries. England skipper Ben Stokes got the first breakthrough by removing Young (70), before James Anderson got the better of the stand-in Kiwi skipper Latham (26) on the first ball of the next over. Devon Conway (46) and incoming Henry Nicholls (30) had also stitched a brisk stand of 77 runs before Stokes and Anderson again struck in quick succession. For England, skipper Ben Stokes and James Anderson took two wickets each, as rest of the bowlers were made to pay for the decision to bowl on a batting-friendly pitch. (SCORECARD)
