  England 1st innings R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal AN Cook b Martin 2 28 21 0 0 9.52
6.3 gone! this is amazing stuff, Cook gets an inside edge into his stumps as he tries to drive and the third one is gone inside seven overs. Martin mixing up his line from round and over the wicket, Cook responded with an airy drive 4/3
View dismissal MP Vaughan* lbw b Southee 2 15 11 0 0 18.18
3.5 gone! Southee has his first Test wicket and Vaughan has gone early...trapped on the crease as he expects the ball to swing out again, it doesn't and is struck plumb in front of middle. Well bowled, and a great start for New Zealand 4/1
View dismissal AJ Strauss c How b Southee 0 8 6 0 0 0.00
5.5 gone! well, well what a start for Southee...a wide ball to Strauss which tempts an expansive and loose drive, Jamie How pulls off a fine catch in the gully and all of a sudden England are in some trouble 4/2
View dismissal KP Pietersen c How b Southee 129 292 208 12 1 62.01
82.2 outside off, driven off a thick edge stomach-high to gully and a straightforward catch. The crowd stand as he heads off ...without him England would be a complete shambles as opposed to only being a moderate one 208/7
View dismissal IR Bell c & b Elliott 9 68 58 1 0 15.51
23.1 gone! Would you believe it, Ian Bell has contrived to flat-bat a long-hop straight back to Elliott as he tried to work it into the leg side. That's Elliott's first Test wicket as England sink further 36/4
View dismissal PD Collingwood c Elliott b Patel 30 96 82 6 0 36.58
48.6 wide, Collingwood leans back and cuts straight to backward point. A really appalling shot, no two ways about it, given both the ball, which wasn't short enough, and the situation. He hurries off as well he might 125/5
View dismissal TR Ambrose c Taylor b Patel 11 39 38 1 0 28.94
60.5 slanted across him, Ambrose pushes hard, gets an edge and Taylor takes a sharp waist-high catch at second slip 147/6
View dismissal SCJ Broad c †McCullum b Southee 42 126 103 5 1 40.77
92.1 gone! and he strikes with the first ball off the day, perfectly pitched outside off stump, Broad pushes forward and gets an outside edge through to Brendon McCullum 240/8
View dismissal RJ Sidebottom c Bell b Southee 14 61 37 1 0 37.83
96.1 gone! Yes he can, dug in short and Sidebottom goes for the pull but only succeeds in lobbing a simple catch to mid-on. Great effort from Southee, five wickets on debut: 23.1-8-55-5 are his figures 253/10
View dismissal MS Panesar b Martin 1 14 13 0 0 7.69
95.5 gone! Martin gets his reward, fires in a full straight ball which Panesar plays all around and loses his middle stump. Was set up by a series of outswingers, well bowled 253/9

28.3 gone! well, the round the wicket ploy has worked (so what do I know) as Sidebottom gets How to drive at a full delivery outside off stump. An edge flies nicely to Strauss at first slip and suddenly England are back in it 116/3
View dismissal MD Bell lbw b Sidebottom 0 2 2 0 0 0.00
0.3 gone! this time Bell's plumb as he pads up to a ball which shapes back and hits him bang in front of all three...Bell really out of his depth, a horrible misjudgement, and the early boost England needed 1/1
View dismissal SP Fleming c Collingwood b Sidebottom 59 98 72 9 1 81.94
22.3 gone! the breakthrough for England and Sidebottom does it again, outside off stump and Fleming plays a loose push which flies quickly to second slip where Collingwood holds on. 103/2
View dismissal MS Sinclair c Broad b Sidebottom 7 37 31 1 0 22.58
30.2 gone! what is going on here, a short ball which Sinclair miscues straight to mid-on where Broad snaffles a low catch...that didn't come out anywhere near the middle, another failure for Sinclair 119/5

View dismissal GD Elliott c †Ambrose b Sidebottom 6 36 24 0 0 25.00
36.4 probing line, Elliott half fences, gets the thinnest of edges and Ambrose does the rest ... Elliott is off without looking at the umpire and Sidebottom has 6 for 33 138/7
View dismissal BB McCullum b Sidebottom 9 15 8 2 0 112.50
32.6 gone! what a huge wicket for England, round the wicket, jags back at McCullum who plays an expansive cut and drags into his stumps...Sidebottom has another five-wicket haul, one in each Test this series, and his 50th Test wicket 137/6
View dismissal DL Vettori* c Cook b Sidebottom 14 72 32 1 0 43.75
48.4 gone! Sidebottom finishes the innings with his seventh wicket as Vettori gets a thick outside edge to Cook at fourth slip/fine gully...a career-best 7 for 47 for the left-armer and what a spell it has been 168/10
View dismissal TG Southee c Pietersen b Broad 5 24 20 1 0 25.00
41.5 another short one, Southee can do no more than fend it to Pietersen in the gully, it looped ever so slowly to him for the easiest of catches 152/8

0.5 gone! what's going on, an horrendous pull from Vaughan takes the top edge through to McCullum and the wickets continue to tumble. That wasn't short enough for the shot, but Vaughan appeared intent on attacking 5/1

123.5 and Strauss falls hitting out for the team cause, coming down the pitch trying to go inside out over extra cover but he doesn't middle it and Matthew Bell takes a good catch running round from mid-off...a selfless dismissal, but England are batting on 424/6

48.3 what a brilliant catch! Ross Taylor, standing in for Fleming at slip, pulls off a blinder at slip as Pietersen tries to turn the ball to leg and gets the back of back...Taylor won't have seen that until late, it's an outstanding catch 140/3
