Rain played spoilsport as Day 3 of the 1st Test between England and New Zealand at Lord’s was abandoned without a ball being bowled on Friday.
England finished day two on 111-2 and trail New Zealand by 267 runs in the first innings after the visitors posted a total of 378 on the back of debutant Devon Conway’s double ton.
Thank you for your patience but play has been abandoned for the day

Rory Burns (59) and skipper Joe Root (42) were at the crease at stumps on day two after the home side lost Dom Sibley and Zak Crawley.
The pair came together at the home of cricket with England in trouble on 18-2 in reply to New Zealand’s 378 that was anchored by Devon Conway’s 200 on his test debut.
Burns and Root were denied the chance to take the field on Friday morning by the weather, with steady rainfall continuing well into the afternoon and leading to any prospect of play being abandoned at 4:30 p.m. local time.
Play will resume at 11 am local time on Saturday, with at least 98 overs to be bowled on each of the next two days as they look to make up for the lost time.
