Adam Lyth has scored his maiden Test ton to put England on top against New Zealand on Day Two of the second Test at Headingley. He is batting with Gary Ballance now. They are 194 for one at the end of 67 overs and are looking really good. Lyth also became the first Yorkshire opening batsmen to score a Test ton at Headingley after Geoffrey Boycott in 1977.

Lyth got a moment of scar when he almost kicked the ball to the stumps but the bails did not come off. Lyth has been particularly good in leaving the balls and finding the right gaps to score his runs. Alastair Cook became England’s highest-ever run-scorer in Test cricket when he broke the record of batting mentor Graham Gooch. The 30-year-old left-handed opener started England’s reply to New Zealand’s first innings 350 on Saturday needing just 32 more runs to surpass Gooch’s mark of 8,900 runs in 118 Tests. Cook was out on 75 when he was given out after a review trying to sweep Mark Craig. Live Updates:England vs New Zealand, 2nd Test at Headingley, Day 2

England earlier bowled out New Zealand for 350. Tom Latham (84) and Luke Ronchi (88) missed out on tons as they took New Zealand to 297 for eight at end of Day One. Rain had washed away a chunk of first session but England picked wickets at regular intervals. The lower order from New Zealand then played cameos to take them to 350 as Stuart Broad took his 13th five-wicket haul in Tests.
