Commonwealth Bank Series, 12th Match: England v New Zealand at Brisbane, Feb 6, 2007
England won by 14 runs
6 February 2007 - day/night match (50-over match)

Bond to Vaughan, OUT, GOT HIM! And what a ball to do it with! Full and inswinging, Vaughan was beaten for pace as he jabbed down late on the crease. The ball zipped beneath his bat and onto middle stump! Jubilation for the Kiwis, and England's captain lasts just one delivery on comeback!

MP Vaughan b Bond 0 (6m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

England 1/1   EC Joyce 0* (6b)   SE Bond 0.1-0-1-1

Bond to Bell, OUT, GONE! And that's pure frustration that's done for Bell! With a bit of luck and placement he could have had four boundaries in the last two overs. Instead he's been becalmed by some good fielding, and now he's chased a full delivery outside off stump, and edged a regulation chance to second slip!

IR Bell c Styris b Bond 12 (33m 28b 2x4 0x6) SR: 42.85

England 28/2   EC Joyce 10* (21b 1x4)   SE Bond 4-2-5-2

Franklin to Joyce, OUT, one step down the track, a shimmy to leg to give himself room, an ugly swish, a thin nick and a straightforward catch. England are now in deep trouble. Can we hear the sound of Duncan Fletcher on the phone to British Airways confirming the flights home tomorrow ...

EC Joyce c †McCullum b Franklin 26 (68m 40b 4x4 0x6) SR: 65.00

England 52/3   AJ Strauss 7* (15b 1x4)   JEC Franklin 4.3-1-24-1

Styris to Strauss, OUT, Strauss can't capitalise! That's a horrid smear across the line - he was targeting the vacant midwicket region, but missed a typical wicket-to-wicket delivery from Styris and lost the top of his middle stump. Another fifty-and-out for Strauss!

AJ Strauss b Styris 55 (120m 63b 3x4 1x6) SR: 87.30

England 155/4   PD Collingwood 54* (70b 3x4)   SB Styris 3.1-0-9-1

Bond to Flintoff, OUT, Relief for Ross Taylor as Flintoff thumps a simple chance straight down Franklin's throat at long-on! It was in the slot for the shot, but that was precisely the problem, as the man was lying in wait. A sucker-punch for England, and now the burden falls squarely on Collingwood's shoulders

A Flintoff c Franklin b Bond 17 (31m 15b 2x4 0x6) SR: 113.33

England 191/5   PD Collingwood 73* (94b 5x4)   SE Bond 7.4-2-21-3

Bond to Collingwood, OUT, leg-side yorker, Collingwood, stepping to the off, is bowled round his legs. He departs scowling at Dalrymple who dropped his bat at the non-striker's end as Bond was in his delivery stride ... and as the ball was delivered he was scrambling around in the dirt trying to pick it up!

PD Collingwood b Bond 106 (164m 121b 8x4 0x6) SR: 87.60

England 250/6   JWM Dalrymple 24* (22b 2x4)   SE Bond 8.5-2-30-4

Gillespie to Nixon, OUT, carbon-copy dismissal ... Nixon shuffles to the off to try to flick the ball to the on side and a full delivery clips his leg stump

PA Nixon b Gillespie 0 (3m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

England 251/7   JWM Dalrymple 25* (23b 2x4)   MR Gillespie 9.2-0-49-1
