New Zealand v England: James Anderson expects tough battle

Fast bowler James Anderson says England face an uphill task to save the first Test against New Zealand after a second successive day of toil in Dunedin.

The hosts advanced from 131-0 to 402-7 to lead by 235 runs when bad light brought a premature end to day three.

“Our job now is to get three wickets and then we have to bat as long as we can to get ourselves into a safe position in the game,” said Anderson.

“It will be pretty difficult I would imagine.”

Anderson was the pick of England’s bowlers with four wickets as the tourists improved on a dismal showing on the second day, when they were bowled out for 167 before failing to take a wicket in 42 overs. Read more
