The second test in the series is going to be played between New Zealand and England and although there are test championship points at stake there is always attrition when these two times meet.
The same was visible in the first test after New Zealand pulled off an unlikely win after being in a dire situation.
BJ Watling and Mitchell Santner were the stars of the game and their stand made sure that England was made to bat under pressure where they crumbled.
New Zealand in particular Wagner made sure that England fell to the short ball.
England will rue the fact that they lost after being in good situations.
