  1. Goodbye

    New Zealand celebrate final wicket

    And that is that.

    The debrief on another England defeat will go on and on. They have lost five of their last six Tests. For more click here.

    Tuffers & Vaughan will be on BBC Radio 5 live tonight at 21:00 BST and I'm sure they'll have plenty to say.

    We're going to call it a day on this page. The next Test starts on Thursday at 23:00 BST. Join us then to see if England can stop the rot.

  2. England not good enough - Vaughan

    Two men scratching their heads. I think this sums England's Test team up perfectly.

    SMS Message: Batting clearly the main failing here. Same as the Ashes, and last summer too. 20s that should be 50s, 50s that should be hundreds. We don't start batting until we're 4 down. Also why couldn't Anderson exploit conditions that were bespoke to his immense talents? Something badly wrong with the whole set up and mentality of this England team, let alone the dearth of talent waiting in the wings in the domestic game. from Neil in Hexham

  6. 'He needs a spinner - and it's not Moeen Ali at the moment'

    Ex-England spinner on BBC Test Match Special

    Joe Root talked about rational decisions, but they're not making them at the moment. He needs a spinner who can plug up one end and take wickets, and I'm sorry but that's not Moeen Ali at the moment. And he needs a change of pace or a different angle to back up James Anderson and Stuart Broad.

    So England are 1-0 down in this two-match series. The best they can do now is draw.

    What changes do you want for the next Test, starting on Thursday night?

    Mark Wood in? Jack Leach to replace Moeen Ali? A return for James Vince? Give Liam Livingstone a go? Let me know.

  8. 'Fantastic performance'

    New Zealand captain Kane Williamson, speaking to Sky Sports: "It was a fantastic performance from us. If we go back to the first innings we bowled very good lengths. I thought we were fortunate to find the edge and off stump. Trent (Boult) was outstanding, so was Tim (Southee).

    "We knew we would have to work hard against a quality England bowling attack and to take wickets in the second innings. It was great we were able to exert pressure throughout the day

    "We knew we wanted to come out and play the long game and not get too far ahead of ourselves. We knew the ball wouldn't do a lot for us. We had a couple go our way but they came after periods of pressure.

    "A big part was taking wickets before the end of the session. It was important - the guys spirits were high."

    So if you're just joining us here's the story of the day...

    England showed fight today but ultimately they just had too much to do. Ben Stokes top scored with 66 but fell to a poor shot right at the end of the second session.

    Chris Woakes also battled to a half century but couldn't see England over the line.

    England succumbed to defeat with 19 overs left in the day.

  10. Post update

    More from England captain Joe Root on TMS: "We weren't at our best in all departments if we're being brutally honest, we couldn't take those 10 wickets and it's important we learn those lessons quickly as we've got another Test match next week and we want to win it to draw the series. Decisions have to be made with rational thinking and we'll do that over the next couple of days.

    "I had great belief in the boys in the dressing-room, I asked them before the start of play to show how much it meant to them to play for England. The Test match wasn't lost today, it was lost on day one. I'm a little bit sore, you always worry about finger injuries but I'll be fine for the next Test."

  11. 'We didn't adapt'

    England captain Joe Root on TMS: "It's hard to look past that first innings, we didn't adapt enough to the conditions and we were always battling to get back into the game. We created chances with the new ball but didn't take them, and after that it looked a good surface to bat on. New Zealand put in a really good shift today and we couldn't put a partnership together."

  12. 'Cool to be a part of'

    Man of the match Trent Boult: "It was a great finish to the match and to get the win was cool to be a part of.

    "The way the bowlers stuck together was significant. [Taking wickets] was slower than we thought today."

  13. 'England toothless with the ball'

    Graeme Swann

    Ex-England spinner on BBC Test Match Special

    England tried gainfully in the field, but were toothless with the ball. I;m worried Anderson and Broad are being made to bowl the donkey overs, because they haven't got anyone else threatening to take wickets. I was very impressed with Henry Nicholls - when they went short at him, he had the sense not to take them on, while England lost a lot of wickets to short balls.

    The word "frenetic" is going to come up - England needed to get into that last break unscathed, Wagner got their adrenaline going and when you see Ben Stokes' shot, you'll think "why on earth has he done that?".

  14. Support from the former skipper...

  15. 'An awesome spectacle'

    New Zealand bowler Neil Wagner, speaking to Sky Sports: "It is a special feeling. We knew we had to take it deep and get to the night session and get the ball to do a little bit. The amount of training under lights with a pink ball with our catching has paid off.

    "It was an awesome spectacle for us but we'll get our head down and focus on the next and get back down to business."

  16. How's stat?!

    Andrew Samson

    BBC Test Match Special statistician

    It's only New Zealand's 10th Test victory over England in 102 Tests.

  17. 'The guys batted so well'

    NZ leg-spinner Todd Astle on TMS: "It was nice to get into my work, build some pressure and get the reward. There were some footmarks there, but it was good to be in that position after the guys batted so well. I took my first Test wicket in 2012, then only bowled four overs in my last Test, so it was nice to contribute at the end. We kept asking demanding questions."

  18. Post update

    Strong words from Swanny but you can't argue. You don't want to blame the bowlers in a game you lost 10 wickets for 58 but there are serious problems.

    Where was Mark Wood?

    Reaction from both sides coming up.

  19. 'England haven't learned from the Ashes'

    Graeme Swann

    Ex-England spinner on BBC Test Match Special

    What worries me is that England haven't learned from the Ashes - they've picked four right-arm seamers doing the same job. At the moment they're carrying the spinner, and carrying a couple of bowlers who aren't really threatening. They need to find some pace or a left-arm seamer from somewhere.

  20. New Zealand go 1-0 up over England

    As Aggers says England lost this in the first session of the match.

    You don't deserve anything after getting bowled out for 58. England showed a bit of fight but they've been thrashed.

    The inquest starts now.
