Tourists frustrated by washout

The Kiwis began their tour of England with a 66-run victory over Somerset at Taunton, despite being bereft of several first-choice Test players – including captain Brendon McCullum – who are involved in the Indian Premier League and will join them in London next week.

Forecast rain had arrived before the scheduled start at New Road and did not relent, but conditions are expected to improve for the remainder of the four-day fixture.
