Watch live online for free as England attempt to set a world record with a 455 run fourth innings comeback to win their Second Test against New Zealand at Headingley Stadium in Leeds, England, in Tuesday’s Day Five action. After declaring on 454/8 in their innings, New Zealand left England’s batsmen with a chase 37 runs greater than the highest ever scored in the fourth innings of Test — and 51 runs more than the record for the Headingley pitch.

The clouds opened up just nine overs after lunch on Day Four, washing out play for the rest of the day — and placing England in prime position to force a draw if they choose not to take the aggressive risks required to reach 455 by the end of the final evening session.

A draw would allow England to claim the series win and end New Zealand’s two-year unbeaten string of Test matches.

In New Zealand’s monumental second innings, eight of the Black Caps cleared the ropes for six, a first in Test match history. New Zealand also set a record run rate for a team that totaled more than 800 runs in a Test, averaging 4.92 per over, topping the 4.6 recorded by Australia in a test against visiting South African in 2012.

The previous record for a fourth-innings chase was set by West Indies against Australia, playing in Antigua back in 2003.

When play resumes on Day Five, England will have all 10 of its wickets to spend, with Alastair Cook and Adam Lyth at bat for 18 and 24 not out, respectively.
