England and New Zealand drew the first Test at Lord’s on Sunday to leave the two-match series all-square heading into next week’s finale at Edgbaston. The hosts, set a target of 273 in 75 overs when New absent captain Kane Williamson declared at lunch on Sunday’s fifth and last day, were 170-3 when a draw used to be agreed within the final hour. The home side rarely gave the look of taking up the challenge of Williamson’s declaration, with opener Dom Sibley grinding his way to 60 not out off 207 balls faced.

This match, which saw Friday’s play washed out totally, used to be notable for New Zealand opener Devon Conway’s significant first-innings 200 on Test debut — the highest score by a batsman making his Test bow in England.
