Match scorecard

New Zealand recovered after a shaky start on the first day of their opening tour match against Derbyshire.

The Kiwis, whose Test series against England begins on 16 June, were without captain Brendon McCullum and star batsman Ross Taylor who have only just arrived from the Indian Premier League.

They struggled to 126-4, with Mark Footitt taking 4-65, but Dean Brownlie (71) and BJ Watling (77 not out) ensured they could declare at 289-5.

Derbyshire reached 24-1 by the close.
