Nick Compton and Jonathan Trott scored hundreds on Day 1 of the Wellington Test to take England to a commanding position against New Zealand. Here are the statistical highlights from the day's play.

# For the first time in his brief Test career, Nick Compton has recorded successive 100-plus scores - 117 at Dunedin and 100 at Wellington - both in the present series.

# Compton, thanks to his two hundreds in six Tests, is averaging 47.22 - his aggregate being 425 runs in eleven innings.

# Compton is the fifth England batsman after Wally Hammiond, Alec Stewart, Derek Randall and Graeme Thorpe to register two hundreds in a Test series against New Zealand in New Zealand.

# Compton is the 21st England player to be dismimissed on 100.  Len Hutton had achieved the feat four times followed by Kevin Pietersen (twice).   

# Nick Compton and Jonathan Trott have shared a stand of 210 - England's highest for the second wicket against New Zealand in New Zealand, eclipsing the 182 between Mike Atherton and Alec Stewart at Auckland in January 1997 while their all-time highest for this wicket-position against New Zealand is 369 between Ken Barrington and John Edrich at Leeds in July 1965.

# Overall, England have recorded five stands of 200 or more for the second wicket against New Zealand in Tests.

# The 210-run stand is England's second highest for any wicket at Basin Reserve, Wellington - the highest being 232 for the sixth wicket betweeen Ian Botham and Derek Randall in January 1984.

# The above partnership is the seventh double century stand for England against New Zealand in Tests in New Zealand - the third since 2002.

# England have registered two double century stands in a Test series against New Zealand for the first time - their 16th instance of such a happening in Test cricket.

# Jonathan Trott, for the first time, has recorded, four consecutive innings of forty-plus - his sequence of scores being 143 against India at Nagpur; 45, 52 and 121 not out against New Zealand in the present series.

# Trott's ninth Test century is his first against New Zealand.  He has recorded four hundreds in England and five away from home
