Two knocks of 80s, by Will Young and Devon Conway, led New Zealand's solid reply to England's first-innings' 303, and finished the second day of the second and final Test at 229 for three wickets at Edgbaston cicket ground, Birmingham on Friday.

New Zealand still trail by 74 runs, though they look like headed for a considerable first-innings lead.

Young scored 82 (204 balls, 11x4s) and opener Conway, the double centurion of the first Test, scored 80 (143 balls, 12x4s).

At stumps, veteran Ross Taylor was batting on 46, scored off 97 balls (6x4s). With the dismissal of Young, the day's play ended, so a new batsman will take guard on Saturday morning along with Taylor.

England fast bowler Stuart Broad ended the day with two wickets for 22 while Daniel Lawrence dismissed Young.

In an effort to check New Zealand's progress, England captain Joe Root pressed into service six bowlers, and himself bowled 13 overs.

Earlier, Conway and Young steadied the New Zealand first innings after an early jolt and helped the visitors to 130 for one wicket at tea. They added 122 for the second wicket, after New Zealand lost Tom Latham (6) with the total being 15 and Broad being the bowler.

Then, another good partnership ensued, between Taylor and Young, for the third wicket. They scored 92 together.

Rory Burns and Dan Lawrence struck half-centuries as England reached 258-7 at the end of the opening day of the second and final test against New Zealand at Edgbaston on Thursday.
 
It was a day of fluctuating fortunes, with England having a 72-run opening partnership, New Zealand taking three wickets in four overs to make it 85-3, and then Lawrence helping the English regain the initiative in the evening session with an unbeaten 67.
 
Lawrence was with Mark Wood (16 not out) at stumps in front of a boisterous crowd of 18,000 at Edgbaston and just 14 runs off Burns' top scorer of 81, which backed up the left-handed opener's 132 at Lord's in the drawn first test.
 
It's been a tough day of test cricket and is pretty even by the end, Burns said. I think there's something in that surface for everyone.
 
Indeed, the New Zealanders will not be displeased with their efforts and looked on course to dismiss England cheaply in reducing the hosts to 175-6, after wicketkeeper James Bracey was out first ball for his second duck in as many test innings.
 
Trent Boult, Matt Henry and Ajaz Patel all took two wickets for the Black Caps, which made six changes from the first test including the late, injury-enforced withdrawal of wicketkeeper B.J. Watling.
 
The tourists chose to rotate ahead of the World Test Championship final against India, which is their priority and starts on June 18.
 
England's only change saw Olly Stone replace fellow fast bowler Ollie Robinson, who was suspended for the match by the England and Wales Cricket Board pending an investigation into historic discriminatory tweets that resurfaced during the first test.
