Played at Lord's, London
15,16,17,18,19 May 2008 (5-day match)
  New Zealand 1st innings R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal JM How c †Ambrose b Anderson 7 34 18 0 0 38.88
7.3 but Anderson's got him this time! How on his back foot falls to the probing line outside off, How plays at it away from his body fending through. He didn't have to play that one, Ambrose takes the edge and England celebrate once more 18/2
View dismissal AJ Redmond c Cook b Anderson 0 7 5 0 0 0.00
1.5 squares him up outside off, but in a place where he had to play it, some swing away and it seams from back of a length, taking the edge fending in front of him. He didn't get in the line of it and there's a good catch for Cook low down to his right at third slip, around six inches off the turf 2/1
View dismissal JAH Marshall c Strauss b Broad 24 104 71 4 0 33.80
23.2 and finally the reward comes for Broad, who has been probing for a long while now. Marshall drives at one that's just outside off and seams away, his edge lobs comfortably into the hands of Andrew Strauss at first slip 76/4
View dismissal LRPL Taylor c Collingwood b Broad 19 24 20 3 0 95.00
12.3 one wild shot too many from Taylor. He tries to pull Broad but all he manages is a thick top edge that flies over the slips, Collingwood runs back from the cordon and takes a pretty simple chance, by his standards 41/3
View dismissal BB McCullum b Panesar 97 173 97 13 2 100.00
50.1 oh, he's missed the century! A well-flighted ball from Panesar, on middle stump and McCullum misjudges the drive, it goes off his pad onto the stumps 203/6
View dismissal DR Flynn b Anderson 9 36 32 2 0 28.12
31.2 that's the third for Anderson! Flynn shuffles across to try to brush the ball off the legs from middle. An unfortunate way to get out, bowled behind his legs, the ball just flicking the thigh pad on the way through and deflecting onto the stumps 104/5
View dismissal JDP Oram c Strauss b Sidebottom 28 139 97 3 0 28.86
62.5 and that's the breakthrough they were looking for. On a good length and seamed fractionally away from Oram, who drives at it and finds a thick edge to Strauss at first slip 222/7
View dismissal DL Vettori* b Sidebottom 48 152 100 6 0 48.00
86.2 nipped back from outside off, Vettori offers a terrible shot, in fact he offered no shot to a straight one, and is castled 277/10
View dismissal KD Mills b Sidebottom 10 66 59 0 0 16.94
80.2 rolls his fingers over that one, sends it full and the ball swings right through the helpless defences of Mills 258/8
View dismissal TG Southee b Sidebottom 1 9 9 0 0 11.11
82.3 and Sidebottom strikes on the first ball back after the light break! Late swing from just outside off, coming right back in off the pitch, full, and going through the defences. Awful shot from Southee though, a mow across the line and he pays the price. Sidebottom loves it 260/9

  England 1st innings R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal AJ Strauss lbw b Oram 63 231 174 6 0 36.20
50.3 and Oram removes Strauss! He fires in a straightish one which certainly keeps low, so height's not a factor, whether Strauss got an edge on it is, as he tried to work to the on side, but Umpire Taufel is happy that it was ball on pad, a hint of movement taking the ball toward off stump 148/2
View dismissal AN Cook c †McCullum b Martin 61 181 109 8 0 55.96
39.6 and that's what Martin was looking for all morning. Similar to the last delivery, angled in and seaming away, but it's a bit straighter and Cook tries to turn it through the leg side but gets an outside edge through to McCullum. It's good catch, too, McCullum diving in front of Taylor at first slip 121/1
View dismissal MP Vaughan* c Marshall b Vettori 106 306 214 11 0 49.53
111.3 here it comes! Vaughan holes out going for the glory shot at deep midwicket and Vettori ends with five wickets, for the first time at Lord's, with Marshall taking the catch 319/10
View dismissal KP Pietersen lbw b Vettori 3 11 9 0 0 33.33
53.3 and now Vettori strikes! Loops one in from round the wicket, Pietersen gets well forward but it was straight and he knew from the moment it hit him low, his bat tucked behind the pad. Hawk-Eye tracked the ball to clipping leg stump, fairly high, and Umpire Bucknor's finger came straight up 152/3
View dismissal IR Bell c †McCullum b Martin 16 47 35 2 0 45.71
65.6 great ball from Martin, he's done it again. Pitched on off stump, moves away a fraction off the seam and Bell has to play. But it straightened just enough to do him in, and tickled the outside edge high on the bat on the way through to McCullum 180/4
View dismissal PD Collingwood c Taylor b Vettori 6 39 13 1 0 46.15
74.1 got him! Vettori turns one up the hill, the ball starting from just outside off, Collingwood plants his foot down the track and a thick snick is snapped tidily by Taylor at first (and only) slip 208/5
View dismissal TR Ambrose lbw b Vettori 0 1 1 0 0 0.00
74.2 massive appeal and he's given him! Vettori drifts back in from just outside off, Ambrose doesn't offer a shot, he's trapped low, and umpire Taufel did not hesitate. Golden duck for Ambrose, Vettori on a hat-trick 208/6
View dismissal SCJ Broad b Oram 25 85 65 3 0 38.46
94.4 and the change has worked. Oram shapes this one in to Broad, a thick inside edge cannons into the batsman's thigh and back onto the stumps. Oram breaks the very handy seventh-wicket stand, which was worth 61 269/7
View dismissal RJ Sidebottom c Taylor b Mills 16 53 53 2 0 30.18
108.5 gone this time! Good bowling once more from Mills, across the left hander and leaving him as it pitches, he sends the edge through to Taylor at first slip who takes a clean catch 317/8
View dismissal MS Panesar c Flynn b Vettori 0 3 2 0 0 0.00
109.2 Panesar goes second ball! Flynn took the catch at short leg as the ball comes in from outside off, Panesar stuns his wrists forward, the ball brushes the glove and skews into the fielder's hands 318/9

  New Zealand 2nd innings R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal JM How c Cook b Broad 68 190 131 9 0 51.90
43.4 Broad comes wider on the crease this time and it does the job. He's angled it in to How, the ball straightened a fraction off the seam and How tried to whip it through midwicket, got a leading edge and it was snapped up by Cook at third slip moving to his right. Great bowling, good catch, and England are really in with a chance now 115/4
View dismissal AJ Redmond c Strauss b Anderson 17 84 57 2 0 29.82
20.2 some extra bounce now from Anderson outside off stump and Redmond, who had looked comfortable this morning, doesn't adjust. He tries to defend but gets a thick edge, high on the bat and Strauss takes a comfortable catch at first slip 47/1
View dismissal JAH Marshall lbw b Sidebottom 0 15 9 0 0 0.00
23.1 immediately Sidebottom finds some swing with the changed ball and it surprises Marshall. Sidebottom pitched it in line, it swung back into the batsman and would probably have struck leg stump. Bucknor says yes, Sidebottom says thank goodness they changed the ball, and New Zealand are in trouble 52/2
View dismissal LRPL Taylor lbw b Panesar 20 57 36 4 0 55.55
34.6 gone! Monty strikes in his first over, a very full ball dipping under Taylor's eyes and he's struck in line with middle. Huge appeal and finally Panesar gets a decision as Taufel raises the finger, but Taylor doesn't look happy. Replays suggest he might have squeezed the ball. Another wobble for New Zealand. 99/3
View dismissal BB McCullum c †Ambrose b Anderson 24 65 45 4 0 53.33
85.4 great ball, outswinger and Anderson draws the outside edge from McCullum who has tried to drive at it. Well bowled 269/6
DR Flynn not out 29 174 118 2 0 24.57
View dismissal JDP Oram b Sidebottom 101 132 121 15 2 83.47
82.1 and that's the end of a terrific innings. Sidebottom fooled him with one that pitched just outside off, nipped back slightly and it's through Oram's defences and clips the very top of off stump. Great ball, it was a little mini-battle between Sidebottom and Oram. Oram has saved his team though with a great knock 252/5
