Root double ton applies pressure on Kiwis: 2nd Test, Day 4 (Hamilton)

Skipper Joe Root made a double century to transfer the pressure onto New Zealand but rain may have the last laugh.

Root posted 226 from 441 balls and 75 from Ollie Pope helped England to 476.

NZ slipped to 28-2 but Kane Williamson and Ross Taylor guided them to 96-2, trailing by only five runs.

New Zealand 375 (Latham 105, Mitchell 73, Watling 55, Broad 4-73) and 96 for 2 (Williamson 37*, Taylor 31*) trail England 476 (Root 226, Burns 101, Pope 75, Wagner 5-124) by five runs.
