Strauss, Bell centuries brighten England warmup match curtailed by rain

Andrew Strauss and Ian Bell made centuries to take useful batting practice from a three-day cricket match between England and a New Zealand XI which was abandoned because of rain on its final day Saturday.
Bell and Strauss both made 104 as England reached 325 for seven in its second innings after trailing by 140 runs on the first.
Kevin Pietersen made 53 for England, which resumed Saturday on 155 for three and added a further 170 runs in 45 overs.
England and New Zealand meet in the first of three test matches at Hamilton beginning next Wednesday.
