Leeds - England were set a target of 455 to win the second Test against New
Zealand on the fourth day at Headingley on Monday.
It left England needing to rewrite the record books if they were to win this
match, as the most any side have made in the fourth innings to win a Test is
the West Indies' 418 for seven against Australia at St John's, Antigua, in
England's corresponding record is 332 for seven against Australia at
Melbourne back in 1928/29.
New Zealand declared their second innings on 454 for eight after smashing
116 runs in 16 overs on Monday at a rate of 7.25 runs per over.
BJ Watling, 100 not out overnight, took his score to 120, and Tim Southee
struck a quickfire 40.
Meanwhile Mark Craig finished on 58 not out off 77 balls, including nine
fours and a six.
England lead the two-match series 1-0 after their 124-run win in the first
Test at Lord's last week.
