At stumps on Day 1, along with left-hander Conway (240 balls, 16x4s), was batting on 46 (149 balls, 3x4s) at Lord's. The two have so far added 132 runs for the fourth wicket.

For England, pacer Ollie Robinson bagged two wickets for 50 runs in 16 overs. Veteran speedster took the other wicket.

Earlier, New Zealand captain won the toss and elected to bat. But Robinson accounted for (23) pretty soon, with the team score being 58. Williamson (13) also did not stay for long. Robinson then dismissed experienced (14) to make it 114 for three.

New Zealand have won only one out of the 17 Tests they have played at Lord's in their 90-year history in England. Their lone victory came in 1999 under Stephen Fleming's captaincy. They have lost eight and drawn eight matches.
All this while, Conway kept one end going. He reached his century off 163 balls (11x4s).

Conway, 29, thus joined an elite club of batsmen, including former captains Sourav Ganguly of India and Andrew Strauss of England, to have hammered centuries on debut at Lord's. Ganguly had scored 131 against England in 1996 and Strauss had made 112 against New Zealand in 2004.

At lunch, New Zealand were 85 for one wicket, with Conway inching closer to his maiden half-century. And at the tea interval, New Zealand were144 for three wickets, with Conway going strong with 71.
