Half-centuries from Jos Buttler, Ollie Pope and Joe Denly rescued England on day two of their warm-up game against New Zealand A in Whangarei. 

The tourists, who resumed Saturday morning on 26-1, tumbled to 105-5, with Dom Sibley (14), nightwatchman Jack Leach (22), skipper Joe Root (2) and vice-captain Ben Stokes (3) dismissed.

However, Denly (68) - seemingly over the ankle knock that ruled him out of the recently-concluded T20I series against New Zealand - and Pope (88) then put on 90 for the sixth wicket before Pope and Buttler (88no) added 114 for the seventh as England surpassed New Zealand A's total of 302-6 declared and closed on 355-8 to lead by 53 runs with one day remaining.

Sibley was the first man out on day two, steering Blair Tickner to gully shortly after being struck on the grille by Kyle Jamieson, the bowler to have removed Rory Burns the previous evening.

Leach and Denly shared a third-wicket stand of 40 but the nightwatchman's dismissal, caught by Tickner off Daryl Mitchell, triggered a collapse of 3-12, with Root and Stokes out for single figures.

Root - who jarred his hip in the field on Friday - seemed to think he got an inside edge on the delivery when he was given out lbw to Mitchell, before Stokes clipped Jimmy Neesham to Mitchell at slip looking to leave the ball.

England trailed by 197 at that point but Denly - who survived a tight lbw shout third ball, was dropped on eight at gully and then almost run out on 46 - and Pope - reprieved on seven after snicking behind with Scott Kuggeleijn having overstepped - made the most of their fortune.

Floods become UK election issue as parties spar over funding

  Floods become UK election issue as parties spar over funding LONDON (AP) — British political leaders swapped blame Saturday over floods that have drenched parts of England as the deluge became an issue in the campaign for the Dec. 12 election. Opposition Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn was visiting parts of northern England that were soaked by overflowing rivers after as much as 4.4 inches (112 mm) of rain — more than a month's worth — fell in one day.

Both Buttler and Denly struggled under pressure in South Africa. England are unlikely to risk Anderson on the slow pitches in Sri Lanka with Chris Woakes, Mark Wood, Stuart Broad, Sam Curran and Ben Stokes all ahead of him in the quick bowling department.

Jos Buttler and Joe Root scored half-centuries as England made 316 on day one of their opening warm-up match in Sri Lanka. Joe Denly , who made 32, Ben Stokes and Ollie Pope fell in quick succession before Root and Buttler added 55 from 142-5. Buttler was the more patient, hitting five

Denly's eventful innings came to a tame end when he pulled Tickner to Mitchell at midwicket but Pope found a fine ally in Buttler, who got off the mark by smashing spinner Ajaz Patel for six, one of three maximums he hit.

Kuggeleijn took the catch to dismiss Pope and then also ousted Curran late on having come into the side as a concussion replacement for Hamish Rutherford - Rutherford withdrawn after being struck on the helmet by Archer while batting for New Zealand A on day one.

LAWRENCE BOOTH AT HAMILTON: Joe Root continues to argue that England's fortunes are about to turn a corner, but that corner was nowhere to be seen on the first day of the second Test.With his side needing victory to leave New Zealand with a 1-1 draw, they instead ran into a cul-de-sac. It contained bad luck, poor fielding and the broad blade of Tom Latham, who finished a rain-affected day on 101 – his fifth Test hundred in 10 innings. Not without good reason is he ranked eighth in the world, higher than any Englishman.
