Rutherford goes, sparking a mini-collapse

2:30 pm on 8 March 2013

The innings of test debutant Hamish Rutherford has finally come to end, dismissed for 171 with the New Zealand cricketers 332 for six a short time ago, against England in the first test in Dunedin.

Rutherford's score is the seventh highest in the history of test cricket by a debutant.

Since he fell, Ross Taylor also went for 31, Dean Brownlie for 27 and BJ Watling for a duck to leave the Black Caps with a 165-run lead.

The Black Caps went to lunch at 255 for two.

James Anderson's unsurprisingly been the pick of the English bowlers with four wickets.

Peter Fulton, who made 55, and Kane Williamson, 24, were the two batsmen dismissed in the first session.
