Batsman Joe Root says England can do "something special" by chasing 455 to beat New Zealand in the second Test at Headingley.

A draw would be enough to secure a 1- nil series win for England, who reached 44 for no loss before rain ended play shortly after lunch on day four.

If England reach their target it would be the highest successful fourth-innings chase in Test history, beating West Indies' 418 for 7 against Australia  in Antigua in 2003.

England's pursuit began after New Zealand declared their second innings on 454 for 8 on the fourth morning, leaving the hosts with more than five sessions to bat.
