New Zealand were still in deep trouble at stumps on day three of the second Test against England at the Basin Reserve in Wellington, reaching 77 for one after being forced to follow on, and 134 runs in arrears.

England fast bowler Stuart Broad collected six wickets in the first innings, dismissing the Black Caps for 254 at tea, still 211 runs behind. At stumps, Peter Fulton was on 41, and Kane Williamson, again at the crease overnight, sat on 16.

The Black Caps started the day on 66 for three, and matters didn't really improve, though Brendon McCullum (69) and BJ Watling (60) added battling half centuries in the middle order.

Williamson and Dean Brownlie had been in the middle overnight, but they weren't long for the offing, adding just 19 runs in the morning before Williamson was dispatched by Broad for 42, caught and bowled.

Brownlie departed four runs later, trapped LBW by James Anderson, before the skipper and keeper joined forces for a century partnership. They pushed the score to 189, before McCullum was caught by Jonathan Trott off Steve Finn.

Watling continued to resist, with Bruce Martin sticking with him for 21 of his own runs to push the score to 239. Tim Southee had only added three before MArtin arrived, bowled by Finn, and Martin was the unbeaten man at the end.

Broad's final two scalps were those of Trent Boult and Neil Wagner, both caught behind by Matt Prior, and the Nottinghamshire man was thrilled with his efforts, after a poor tour of India and various injury struggles.

The evening session saw the Kiwis resist manfully, with only Hamish Rutherford sent back to the dressing room. The centurion from the first Test was caught by Ian Bell off Monty Panesar for 15.

Fulton and Williamson then battened down the hatches for the rest of the session, going at snail's pace and Williamson looking particularly sedate. He'd faced 67 balls for his 16, while Fulton resisted 101 deliveries.
