Dunedin: Mar 8, 2013

England were hustled out for just 167 on the second day of the opening Test against New Zealand as the unfancied Black Caps attack destroyed the tourists’ powerful batting line-up.

Debutant Bruce Martin and Neil Wagner claimed four wickets apiece as England’s batsmen threw away their wickets on a relatively tame surface with a series of rash shots against the disciplined New Zealand bowling.

Jonathan Trott top-scored with 45 as the tourists’ first innings lasted just 55 overs after the first day’s play was abandoned due to bad weather.

Tim Southee grabbed an early breakthrough to dismiss Compton for a duck in the third over of the innings, putting pressure on the opener, who faces growing pressure from Joe Root for his spot at the top of the order.

Left-arm paceman Wagner, a late inclusion in the New Zealand side after an injury to Doug Bracewell, then claimed the wickets of Alastair Cook (10) and Pietersen (0) in successive balls to leave England reeling at 18 for three.

Pietersen has been short of cricket in the lead-up to the Test series, rested for England’s limited overs fixtures against New Zealand and posting meagre returns of 14 and eight in his only warm-up match.

Brief Scores: England 167 (Jonathan Trott 45; Neil Wagner 4 for 42, Bruce Martin 4 for 43) lead New Zealand 131 for no loss (Hamish Rutherford 77*, Peter Fulton 46*) by 36 runs
