Broad's six leaves NZ in tatters

Peter Fulton and Kane Williamson guided New Zealand through to 77 for one in their second innings at the close of play on the third day of the second Test at the Basin Reserve on Saturday though England were firmly in control of the match.  

Fulton was on 41 while Williamson was 16 not out as the hosts were still 134 runs from
making England bat again and needing the rain predicted for late on Sunday to arrive earlier than expected to save the match.

While showers are predicted late on the fourth day, New Zealand's MetService has forecast persistent rain for the Wellington region throughout Monday.
England captain Alastair Cook had enforced the follow-on after bowling New Zealand out for 254 shortly before tea, with the hosts 12 runs short of the required target to put the tourists back in to bat and well adrift of England's 465.
