New Zealand all out for 123 and must bat again, trails England by 214 runs on third day

New Zealand crumbled to 123 all out as England took control of the third test at Trent Bridge on Saturday.
New Zealand had resumed its first innings at 96-6, needing 69 more runs to avoid the follow on after play was delayed for 1 1/2 hours on the third day because of rain.
The tourists failed and England forced them to follow on. The Kiwis now trail England's first inning score of 364 by 241 runs.
James Anderson took the final wicket of Gareth Hopkins to set his new test best haul of 7-43. He finished Friday with 6-42.
Ryan Sidebottom and Stuart Broad dismissed the other three batsmen.
Daniel Vettori only added four runs to his overnight score before he became Sidebottom's first wicket of the match, when he was caught at first slip by Andrew Strauss, leaving New Zealand on 108-7.
Anderson had his first chance to claim his seventh wicket in his second over of the day, but Paul Collingwood was just short of catching a shot from Hopkins at second slip.
Kyle Mills was caught at backward point by Kevin Pietersen for 1 on Broad's third delivery. On his fifth, Broad bowled the offstump of Iain O'Brien for a duck.
On Friday, Anderson took the early wickets of Aaron Redmond and Brendon McCullum for five runs in 11 balls to leave New Zealand at 14-2.
In a later spell after tea, Anderson claimed two wickets in three balls by dismissing Ross Taylor for 21 and Daniel Flynn for nought, leaving New Zealand teetering at 62-4. Jamie How topscored with 40 before he joined Jacob Oram (7) in the pavilion.
Four balls later, New Zealand took the offer to go off for bad light, which curtailed play by an hour.
England was all out for 364, its first innings spearheaded by Pietersen's 115 on the opening day and Stuart Broad's test-best 64 on Friday.
England, which has lost its last two test matches at Trent Bridge _ to Sri Lanka and India _ holds a 1-0 lead in the series after winning at Old Trafford on May 26. The first test at Lord's was a rain-affected draw.
