Scorecard

England were bowled out for 58 – their sixth lowest total – as New Zealand dominated day one of the first Test.

Playing their first Test since losing the Ashes 4-0 in Australia, England slipped to 27-9 before being dismissed in 20.4 overs at Eden Park, Auckland.

Trent Boult took 6-32 and Tim Southee 4-25 as five batsmen made ducks, equalling England’s record.

Kane Williamson’s 91 not out helped the hosts to 175-3 – a lead of 117 – after Stuart Broad claimed his 400th wicket.

England became only the fifth side to be bowled out in the first session of a Test.

They knew they were facing a 10th defeat in 12 away Tests long before their last wicket fell barely an hour and a half into what was expected to be a keenly contested two-match series.

Craig Overton, the number nine, top-scored with an unbeaten 33, while Mark Stoneman was the only other batsman to reach double figures.
