The 28-year-old's bowlers - who had appeared rusty earlier this week as a New Zealand XI made 285-4 against them in a day - were hit for 302-6 declared by a strong New Zealand A outfit before closing on 26-1 at Cobham Oval, Rory Burns (14) the man to fall.

Archer dismissed Hamish Rutherford (59) and Tom Blundell (60) after they had made half-centuries but Sam Curran (0-53) - preferred to Chris Woakes in a possible indication that he will get the nod for the final seam-bowling spot in the first Test from Wednesday - went wicketless.

Stokes (2-64) struck twice, removing Jimmy Neesham (0) and Tim Seifert (24), amid New Zealand A slipping from 124-1 to 167-4 once Archer had ended a second-wicket stand of 107 between Rutherford and Phillips when he had the former - whom he had earlier struck on the helmet - strangled down the leg-side after lunch.

Stuart Broad (1-66) had made the only breakthrough in the morning session, pinning Rachin Ravindra lbw for 12 in the fifth over after New Zealand A had elected to bat in Whangarei.

The hosts' declaration - which came immediately after Blundell pulled Archer to midwicket - gave England 10 overs to bat before stumps, with Sibley (6no) - fresh from a hundred against the New Zealand XI - and nightwatchman Leach (2no) there at the close.

Joe Denly is carded to come in next having replaced Kent team-mate Zak Crawley in the side after recovering from the ankle injury that kept him out of the recent T20I series against New Zealand and led to Jonny Bairstow being called up to the Test squad as cover.
