Dan Lawrence and Mark Wood helped to push England to 303 runs in its first innings before New Zealand bowled out the hosts on the second morning of the second test at Edgbaston on Friday.

Wood, resuming on 16 not out, swung away and entertained a lively home crowd with six boundaries before edging a delivery from Matt Henry (3-78) onto his stumps to finish on 41. That got England to 288-8, adding 30 runs since play resumed.
England reached 303-9 on Lawrence’s four after Stuart Broad lasted just four balls for his 37th duck in test cricket.
Trent Boult (4-85) finished off James Anderson leg before wicket after the original call was overturned on review. England’s most-capped test player scored four runs from 16 balls.
Lawrence, who had resumed on 67, was unbeaten on 81 to match England opener Rory Burns’ runs total from Thursday.
In reply, New Zealand was 43-1 at lunch with Tom Latham (6) falling lbw to Broad.
The teams played to a draw at Lord’s in the first of two tests.
The Black Caps had made six changes from the first test including the late, injury-enforced withdrawal of wicketkeeper B.J. Watling. The tourists chose to rotate ahead of the World Test Championship final against India, which is their priority and starts on June 18.
Conway, Young lead strong NZ reply to Eng 
Devon Conway (78 batting) and Will Young (40 batting) steadied the New Zealand first innings after an early jolt and helped the visitors to 130 for one wicket at tea, in reply to England’s 303, on the second day of the second and final Test here on Friday.
First Test’s double centurion Conway (135 balls, 12x4s) and Young (107 balls, 6x4s) have so far added 115 runs for the second wicket at Edgbaston. New Zealand lost Tom Latham (6) at 15, fast bowler Stuart Broad having him leg before the wicket.
