England end Day Three at 180-6 at Lord's
Tim Southee bowled New Zealand back into contention in the first Test against England with a dramatic burst late on Day Three at Lord's on Saturday.
At stumps, England were 180 for six in their second innings — a lead of 205 runs. England were in the process of building a sound position at 159 for two when paceman Southee wrested back the initiative with three wickets for four runs in 17 balls.
In all, England lost four wickets for 12 runs to throw the first of this two-Test series wide open, although their lead was now almost as much as New Zealand’s meagre first innings 207.
