England suffered a nightmare start to their series in New Zealand after crashing to 167 all out in their first innings of the opening Test in Dunedin.
After rain had ruled out play on day one, England were bowled out inside two sessions before the hosts reached 131 without loss at the close of day two at the University Oval.
A string of regrettable shots contributed prominently in a faulty England innings which featured four wickets each for Neil Wagner and debutant Bruce Martin.
Only Jonathan Trott, the tourists' top scorer with 45, and tailenders James Anderson and Steven Finn delayed New Zealand for long, with Kevin Pietersen and Nick Compton going for ducks and captain Alastair Cook making just ten.
England were made to pay for their woeful showing with the bat when debutant Hamish Rutherford (77) and Peter Fulton (46) produced a solid opening partnership to leave Cook's side on the ropes.
