Daryl Mitchell joined a select group of New Zealand batsmen to have scored a Test hundred at Lord's when he made 108 against England on Saturday.

Mitchell, 97 not out overnight, hit his first ball of the third day's play for a three-off Stuart Broad to gain a coveted place on the dressing room honours board.

But his exit sparked a New Zealand collapse that saw the World Test champions lose their last six wickets for 24 runs, with a total of 285 leaving England needing 277 to win the first of this three-match series.

Tom Blundell, 90 not out overnight, just failed to join Mitchell in reaching three figures, with the wicketkeeper lbw for 96 to James Anderson.

Mitchell is the 15th New Zealand batsman to score a Test hundred at the 'Home of Cricket', with the late Martin Crowe having achieved the feat twice in his illustrious career.
