England and New Zealand head to a series decider in Auckland after the final day's play of the second Test in Wellington was washed out by rain.

The tourists had hoped to push for victory at the Basin Reserve with the Black Caps 162-2 in their second innings, still trailing by 49 runs after being asked to follow-on.

However, with the players not even travelling to the ground for the scheduled start on day five, the game ended in a draw, with the first Test in Dunedin having also finished in a stalemate.

That leaves a winner-takes-all clash at Eden Park, starting late on Thursday evening UK time, with England 1.40 to win the game and the series, while New Zealand are 9.50 and the draw is 4.00.

England have only once lost a Test match at Eden Park, with the 15 matches since 1930 ending in four wins, one defeat and ten draws for the tourists.

The one reverse came last time out in Wellington, with England going down by 78 runs in 2002, failing to chase down a victory target of 312 in a relatively low-scoring match.

England bowling coach David Saker is hoping that the pitch at Eden Park shows a little more life than those in Dunedin and Auckland, saying: "If you watched the Twenty20 and one-day games, they were played on very good and fast wickets - which produced some good cricket.

"The two Test wickets we've played on have been quite opposite to that."
