England lose to NZ despite Stokes knock

Jonathan Agnew and Graeme Swann reflect in the immediate aftermath as England lost by an innings and 49 runs to New Zealand in the first Test at Auckland.

Jonathan Agnew and Graeme Swann reflect in the immediate aftermath as England lost by an innings and 49 runs to New Zealand in the first Test at Auckland despite the efforts of all-rounder Ben Stokes on the final day.

Stokes made a patient 66 from 188 balls as he and Chris Woakes (52) helped the tourists recover after early wickets.

The Durham man's dismissal three balls before the dinner break effectively ended England's hopes of a draw.

England will get a chance to level the two-match series at Christchurch in the second Test, which starts on Thursday.
