England finish their first innings on 465 and will have a bowl at New Zealand after tea on day two of the second Test match in Wellington.

New Zealand have wrapped up England's first innings just before tea on day two of the second Test match in Wellington.

The tourists have built a competitive total of 465, with Matt Prior falling 18 runs short of his century.

Kevin Pietersen (73) could only add five more runs to his score after lunch, as he was caught by Peter Fulton trying to smash Bruce Martin's delivery for six.

Next in was Stuart Broad (6), but he only lasted five balls before edging Trent Boult to wicketkeeper BJ Watling.

Steven Finn continued his impressive run scoring for a tail-ender by making 24 before driving Neil Wagner straight to Brendan McCullum.

Their partnership of 83 did much to boost England's total.

Kane Williamson produced a magnificent catch to finally remove Prior (82), before Ross Taylor removed Monty Panesar after just three balls.
