England make it to tea without loss on day four of the first Test against New Zealand.

England openers Alastair Cook and Nick Compton have batted throughout the afternoon session in day four of the first Test against New Zealand.

The tourists are currently on 139-0 as the two teams head in for tea in Dunedin, which means they now trail by 154 runs.

Cook (64) was the first to reach his half-century, nudging a single from Bruce Martin, before Compton (60) whipped the spinner's delivery away for three runs to bring up his half-ton.

Both have looked assured at the crease, but will be looking to reach three figures as England seek to salvage a draw.
