Century no surprise

Michael Vaughan had another one of his premonitions before rewriting Test record books with a sixth hundred at Lord's.

Vaughan, 33, has a habit of scenting a three-figure score is around the corner and did so upon arrival for the first match of the npower series against New Zealand.

His 106 equalled Graham Gooch's record of Test hundreds at the headquarters of English cricket and helped his side establish a 42-run lead on first innings.

Vaughan's 18th international century also highlighted his ability to shrug off poor form when it counts - his seven innings for Yorkshire this summer had yielded just 135 runs.

"I had it on Monday when I came here," said Vaughan. "It seems very surreal that you get these feelings.
