    Background: YORKSHIRE'S PHIL SHARPE SCORED HIS FIRST TEST CENTURY FOR ENGLAND ON THURSDAY. HE AND JOHN EDRICH, WHO ALSO HIT A CENTURY, PLAYED SOME LOOSE NEW ZEALAND BOWLING AFTER AN EARLY SET-BACK FOR ENGLAND.

    BEFORE LUNCH, THE LAST FOUR NEW ZEALAND WICKETS FELL FOR THE THE ADDITION OF 63 RUNS, SETTING ENGLAND A FIRST INNINGS TARGET OF 294. COLLINGE (CAUGHT KNOTT, BOWLED KNIGHT FOR 19) AND HADLEE (NOT OUT 35) CONTRIBUTED THE STRONGEST OPPOSITION TO THE ENGLAND ATTACK.

    FACING THREE OVERS BEFORE LUNCH, ENGLAND SUFFERED THEIR SET-BACK WHEN BOYCOTT, STILL STRUGGLING TO FIND HIS FORM, WAS BOWLED OFF HIS BODY BY MOTZ WITHOUT SCORING. IT WAS BOYCOTT'S THIRD DUCK IN FOUR TEST INNINGS.

    BOYCOTT'S YORKSHIRE COLLEAGUE, PHIL SHARPE, REFUSED TO BY TIED DOWN BY THE TOURIST'S ATTACK. HE BEGAN BY HOOKING A BOUNDARY OFF MOTZ, AND THEN RACED TO HIS HALF CENTURY AGAINST SOME UNTIDY BOWLING IN 64 MINUTES.

    AFTER TEA, SHARPE'S SCORING RATE SLOWED DOWN CONSIDERABLY AND EDRICH, WHO HAD PREVIOUSLY BEEN CONTENT TO PLAY A SUPPORTING ROLE, BEGAN TO OVERTAKE HIS PARTNER.

    EDRICH WAS FIRST TO REACH HIS CENTURY, AND WAS ALSO THE FIRST TO ADD HIS CONGRATULATIONS WHEN SHARPE, AFTER AN AGONIZING HALF AN HOUR ON 98, COMPLETED HIS FIRST TEST CENTURY.

    ENGLAND FINISHED THE DAY IN A STRONG POSITION AT 225 FOR 1.
