England vs New Zealand (ENG vs NZ) 1st Test Live Cricket Score Updates: New Zealand resume at 62/2 with a lead of 165 runs over England heading into the final day of the first Test at Lord’s. Inspired by paceman Tim Southee, New Zealand remain in control despite Rory Burns compiling his third century for England.

England New Zealand 1st Test, Day 5 Live Cricket Score:
Welcome to the final day of the 1st Test of the series. This match is most likely to veer to a draw. New Zealand have a lead of 165 and 8 wickets in hand. They could be looking to add a quick 100-120 runs in the first session before trying to force a result in the last two sessions. But chances are, they won’t. It’s advantage Kiwis in this 1st Test, but given the battles to come — the Edgbaston Test and the all-important WTC Final — New Zealand will probably not mind letting this one go.
Play begins at 3:30 pm IST.
England: Rory Burns, Dominic Sibley, Zak Crawley, Joe Root(c), Daniel Lawrence, Ollie Pope, James Bracey(w), Ollie Robinson, Stuart Broad, Mark Wood, James Anderson
New Zealand:Tom Latham, Devon Conway, Kane Williamson(c), Ross Taylor, Henry Nicholls, BJ Watling(w), Colin de Grandhomme, Mitchell Santner, Kyle Jamieson, Tim Southee, Neil Wagner
