hello, thanks forjoining us. we will start with the deer in headlights in auckland. hoedt and embarrassed is how coach trevor baylis described his england team so i don't know how fans felt, they stayed up all night to see it went all out forjust 58 stayed up all night to see it went all out for just 58 and stayed up all night to see it went all out forjust 58 and a one of the first test against new zealand. and it could have been even t' have — in. the captain i root

english cricket. this is the scorecard after the first day, it is dismal leading, england all out with trent boult and tim southee doing the damage for the black caps. new zealand 175—3 thanks to captain kane williamson's 9i zealand 175—3 thanks to captain kane williamson's 91 not out, a lead of 117. shukh williamson's 91 not out, a lead of ii7. shukh broad took the wicket of tom latham to reach 400 so at least one right moment for the tourists de stuart broad. for england, it was their sixth lowest total in test history. and it would have been worse without craig overton because it is 58, number six, but 27—9. had that wicket falling before his onslaught, it would have been right at the top list. they say bowlers win you games and batsmen stop you losing it. for england, they need both for and avoidance of defeat in auckland. some reaction has been
6:38 pm
apocalyptic. this is from the daily telegraph cricket correspondent who has seen it all before. it was of course a day night test in auckland, the first in new zealand. and the bbc sport cricket correspondent wa nts to bbc sport cricket correspondent wants to remind stuart broad's achievement should not be forgotten. is second in the all—time list of england's test bowlers. michael vaughan was not out there but was asleep and he woke up and he was a little bit shocked he said... that is not a number in and want for the rest of the day. but england to admit theirfailings, rest of the day. but england to admit their failings, this rest of the day. but england to admit theirfailings, this is rest of the day. but england to admit their failings, this is from the official england account... graeme swann is out there and part of the bbc‘s commentary team. he has his own assessment and he has been speaking to us. well, it was sunday for england cricket and not
6:39 pm
particularly good. graeme swann, former england spinner, what you make of it, it seemed fairly unbelievable? i can say when a team is out for 50, it is better when it is out for 50, it is better when it is australia and england is on the plus side. it wasjust incredible, the sun is out, not a bad day for batting, trent boult played well but england didn't turn up, their feet didn't get out of the crease, a lot when nicked from behind the crease. trent boult bowling well, tim southee backing him up. obviously getting just over 50 is not good enough. if it was not for craig overton with 33 not out, 27—9 at one point. it was almost comic and i said, ican point. it was almost comic and i said, i can take the make out my friends in years to come! no laughing matter at the moment. saying on social media that somebody‘s head has to roll, somebody‘s head has to roll, somebody is culpable, somebody has to be responsible, but not quite that straightforward. no, people
6:40 pm
calling for the coach to be sacked and this and that but england just batted terribly. i have been in teams where that happens sometimes. the juggernaut of destruction comes away and you can't stop it. and i have been the bowling team and it is going your way and you really have to wicket every ball. stuart broad rolled through new zealand in the same way a couple of years ago. don't say people have to go, somebody must be to blame, nobody is to blame, collectively, england's didn't bat well enough and they have to learn from how well trent ault bowled and how well kane williamson batted. somehow try and get something out of this game. england will come here tomorrow hoping for an infinitely better day. the challenge with kane williamson very much in is how they can possibly turn the chip around. from auckland, it starts again at iam in the morning. gareth bale has broken wales's all—time goal—scoring record with a hat—trick in their 6—0
