England fighting uphill against New Zealand at Lords

CRICKET: England had plenty of work to do if it was to prevent New Zealand from winning at Lord's for the first time since 1999 overnight.

England was 6 for 180 in its second innings, a lead of 205 runs, at the start of day four of the first Test.

Jonathan Trott (56) and Joe Root (71) shared a third-wicket stand of 123 before paceman Tim Southee (3 for 34) triggered a dramatic collapse which saw England lose four wickets for 12 runs.

Nightwatchman Steven Finn was 6 not out and Ian Bell 0 not out at stumps.

Wicket-keeper Matt Prior made a pair, the first by an England batsman at Lord's since 1995.
