NZ, Eng second Test ends in draw

England’s hopes of snatching a win in the second Test against New Zealand dissolved in the Wellington rain today, with the match declared a draw after the final day’s play was washed out.

The clash at the Basin Reserve ended with New Zealand at 162 for two in their second innings, still 49 runs in arrears after the tourists set an imposing first innings total of 465 and enforced the follow-on.

Not a ball was bowled Monday in a finish England captain Alastair Cook admitted was frustrating after his team dominated but ran out of time pressing for victory.
