LONDON – New Zealand were bowled out for 378 in the first innings after lunch on day two as England’s fast bowlers cleaned up the middle order and tail on Thursday but not before opening batsman Devon Conway smashed a double century and nearly carried his bat.

The visitors started the day on 246-3 but lost wickets at regular intervals as Mark Wood picked up three for just seven runs in a fiery spell in the first session while Ollie Robinson finished with 4-75 on his test debut. Conway, who set a record for the highest score on test debut at Lord’s, was in danger of missing out on a double ton when New Zealand were nine down but he received support from their number 11 Neil Wagner who frustrated England with 25 off 21 balls.

Conway became only the seventh batsman to score a double century on debut, reaching the milestone with a six over long leg, before he became the last wicket to fall when he was run out by mere millimetres.
