New Zealand tour of Australia, 2007/08 / Wicket commentary

Chappell-Hadlee Trophy - 1st ODI

Australia v New Zealand

Australia won by 7 wickets (with 45 balls remaining)

2.6

Lee to Vincent, OUT, oh what a catch! James Hopes! Vincent rocks back and slaps a short, wide and rising delivery outside off stump, but gets the outside corner of the bat and the edge flies down to wide third man where Hopes keeps his eyes on it, dives forward, and holds on very well to get Australia an early breakthrough, much to Lee's satisfaction

L Vincent c Hopes b Lee 5 (16m 11b 1x4 0x6) SR: 45.45

New Zealand 16/1   BB McCullum 2* (9b)   B Lee 2-0-11-1

22.4

Tait to How, OUT, edged and gone! Tait produces a wicket, out of the blue, with a good-length delivery moving away off the scrambled seam - looks like he rolled the fingers over that one - that How fends for with minimal footwork, and Hayden holds a good low catch to his right at slip

JM How c Hayden b Tait 20 (85m 59b 1x4 0x6) SR: 33.89

New Zealand 115/2   BB McCullum 73* (70b 11x4 1x6)   SW Tait 4.4-0-38-1

24.5

Tait to Styris, OUT, gone! Fuller length does it for Styris, tentatively coming forward and feeling for it outside off stump only to hand Gilchrist a regulation nick behind the stumps!

SB Styris c †Gilchrist b Tait 5 (8m 10b 0x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

New Zealand 123/3   BB McCullum 76* (73b 11x4 1x6)   SW Tait 5.5-0-43-2

35.3

Hogg to McCullum, OUT, and would you believe that? Hogg gets McCullum four short of a maiden hundred, sucking him out of his crease, only to get him smacking straight to Bracken, running in from long-off

BB McCullum c Bracken b Hogg 96 (165m 103b 12x4 1x6) SR: 93.20

New Zealand 175/4   LRPL Taylor 31* (34b 2x6)   GB Hogg 6.3-0-34-1

40.5

Lee to Taylor, OUT, Lee strikes! Its full, Taylor comes forward, looking to go on-side, but gets a leading edge that Tait comfortably holds onto at mid-off, and a good innings comes to an end

LRPL Taylor c Tait b Lee 50 (69m 52b 1x4 3x6) SR: 96.15

New Zealand 197/5   JDP Oram 3* (14b)   B Lee 7.5-0-39-2

43.1

Hopes to Sinclair, OUT, and he wastes no time, keeping it in the slot, Sinclair has a free swing from the crease, not getting enough elevation and Hogg holds on well inside the ropes at long-on

MS Sinclair c Hogg b Hopes 2 (8m 10b 0x4 0x6) SR: 20.00

New Zealand 201/6   JDP Oram 5* (18b)   JR Hopes 8.1-0-28-1

48.6

Tait to Vettori, OUT, bowled! Vettori walks right across the stumps, well outside off in an attempt to play one of those en vogue paddles to fine man, but inside-edges onto leg stump to hand Tait a third wicket with his final ball

DL Vettori b Tait 18 (26m 20b 0x4 0x6) SR: 90.00

New Zealand 241/7   JDP Oram 26* (34b 3x4)   SW Tait 10-0-59-3
