Commonwealth Bank Series, 9th Match: England v New Zealand at Perth, Jan 30, 2007
New Zealand won by 58 runs
30 January 2007 - day/night match (50-over match)

Plunkett to Fleming, OUT, full and swinging in, Fleming caught in no-man's land and it raps him on the pad but looks for all the world to have got a thin inside edge to that. If he didn't then it was plumb ... the umpire has no doubts

SP Fleming lbw b Plunkett 15 (28m 14b 3x4 0x6) SR: 107.14

New Zealand 32/1   L Vincent 8* (17b 1x4)   LE Plunkett 3-0-19-1

Plunkett to Fulton, OUT, full and on off stump, Fulton looks to drive, gets a thin edge and Nixon does well to take a low catch tumbling to his right

PG Fulton c †Nixon b Plunkett 15 (19m 19b 1x4 0x6) SR: 78.94

New Zealand 53/2   L Vincent 12* (22b 1x4)   LE Plunkett 4.5-0-30-2

Collingwood to Taylor, OUT, good bowling from Collingwood, the slower ball, a legcutter and Taylor sails that up to long-on (his hand coming off the bat) where it's Panesar... and can he... oh, Monty makes that catch look easy! Ah, it was. Nevermind, he's cool in collecting it and cool in celebrating - pointing a finger up in the air, as if to say who da man

LRPL Taylor c Panesar b Collingwood 71 (117m 81b 7x4 1x6) SR: 87.65

New Zealand 190/3   L Vincent 65* (89b 6x4)   PD Collingwood 5.3-0-32-1

Panesar to McMillan, OUT, gone this time! Tidy work from Nixon and Panesar gets the wicket he deserves, McMillan down the track to get after Panesar and misses completely. Panesar sets off in his endearingly lost-in-his-own-world celebrations, skipping and whirring his finger around

CD McMillan st †Nixon b Panesar 11 (25m 12b 2x4 0x6) SR: 91.66

New Zealand 213/4   L Vincent 75* (107b 7x4)   MS Panesar 7.3-2-20-1

Plunkett to Vincent, OUT, and the change does the trick! An easy chip to midwicket, dolly catching practice for Dalrymple, really, short in on the legs. Smart captaincy from Flintoff

L Vincent c Dalrymple b Plunkett 76 (181m 111b 7x4 0x6) SR: 68.46

New Zealand 219/5   JDP Oram 3* (6b)   LE Plunkett 6.1-0-39-3

Panesar to McCullum, OUT, "Catch, catch, catch!" suggests Nixon and Strauss obliges, taking that running forward and carrying on a few steps with the momentum. McCullum was going leg-side, it was too wide, so he had to adjust on the off-side. Good cameo nevertheless

BB McCullum c Strauss b Panesar 19 (19m 18b 1x4 1x6) SR: 105.55

New Zealand 246/6   JDP Oram 5* (11b)   MS Panesar 10-2-35-2

Tremlett to Franklin, OUT, length ball and tries to clear mid-off, but Plunkett at long-off, running backwards, holds on for a relatively easy catch

JEC Franklin c Plunkett b Tremlett 9 (13m 8b 0x4 0x6) SR: 112.50

New Zealand 268/7   JDP Oram 16* (19b 1x6)   CT Tremlett 8.3-0-48-1
