6 February 2007 - day/night match (50-over match)
  England innings (50 overs maximum) R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal EC Joyce c †McCullum b Franklin 26 68 40 4 0 65.00
13.3 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 ... 52/3
View dismissal MP Vaughan* b Bond 0 6 1 0 0 0.00
1.2 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! 1/1
View dismissal IR Bell c Styris b Bond 12 33 28 2 0 42.85
7.6 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! 28/2
View dismissal AJ Strauss b Styris 55 120 63 3 1 87.30
33.1 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! 155/4
View dismissal PD Collingwood b Bond 106 164 121 8 0 87.60
47.5 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! 250/6
View dismissal A Flintoff c Franklin b Bond 17 31 15 2 0 113.33
39.4 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 191/5
JWM Dalrymple not out 29 51 26 2 0 111.53
View dismissal PA Nixon b Gillespie 0 3 2 0 0 0.00
48.2 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 251/7

View dismissal L Vincent c Flintoff b Panesar 31 72 32 3 0 96.87
13.1 Vincent tries to hit against the spin, gets a massive top edge and Flintoff, a few feet inside the 30-yard circle at mid-on, waits and waits and then holds the catch with nonchalant ease 81/1
View dismissal SP Fleming* c †Nixon b Flintoff 106 141 149 11 0 71.14
46.5 tried to give himself room to hit through the covers, a thick and edge and Nixon holds the catch. That could be that ... 232/8
View dismissal PG Fulton c Bell b Plunkett 12 41 30 1 0 40.00
21.6 well, well ... Plunkett has his man, and that is due reward for a fine over. Fulton went for the pull, was through the shot too early, and a steepling top-edge plopped comfortably into the hands of Ian Bell in the covers 107/2
View dismissal LRPL Taylor run out (Vaughan/Flintoff) 25 55 27 1 0 92.59
34.1 Flintoff to Fleming, England have got the wicket! And it's a run-out from Flintoff's first ball of the new spell! Fleming defended into the covers and set off for the run, Taylor hesitated, Fleming stopped dead, retreated, Taylor kept on coming, and Flintoff fielded the ball and hurtled down to the non-striker's end! Big breakthrough 169/3
View dismissal SB Styris c Panesar b Collingwood 16 36 20 0 0 80.00
41.3 He's holed out to Monty! Slightly shorter from Collingwood, but it was a slower ball, and Panesar at mid-off held on to a simple chance that no doubt looked pretty difficult as it looped towards him! Could there be a late twist in this match? 203/4
View dismissal JDP Oram c †Nixon b Plunkett 5 6 7 1 0 71.42
42.4 slightly fuller, again Oram looks to crash it out the ground ... this time the edge is finer and at a perfect height for Nixon who only has to move a foot or two to his left 208/5
View dismissal BB McCullum b Plunkett 2 10 6 0 0 33.33
44.3 straight and full, McCullum shimmies to leg and is bowled off his pads 212/6
View dismissal DL Vettori c Vaughan b Collingwood 10 9 7 2 0 142.85
45.6 full toss heaved right to Vaughan at midwicket. Collingwood finishes with 2 for 46 to add to his hundred and New Zealand need something Lazarus-like now 224/7
