View dismissal JM How c Collingwood b Panesar 92 250 180 11 0 51.11
60.6 another superb catch, taken low to his left by Collingwood at slip, as Panesar gets one to turn fractionally across How and it takes a thin edge. How stands his ground, frustration not dissent, and then looks to the heavens before slowly heading off 176/4
View dismissal MD Bell c Cook b Harmison 19 61 37 4 0 51.35
13.4 a really good chest-high catch from Cook at gully as that was travelling, and frankly a poor shot. Bell threw the kitchen sink at a half volley but his feet were planted and he only got a thick edge 44/1
View dismissal SP Fleming c Cook b Sidebottom 41 91 73 8 0 56.16
37.3 wide, Fleming leans back and slashes, Cook at gully takes a quite brilliant one-handed catch diving at full stretch to his right 108/2
View dismissal MS Sinclair c & b Collingwood 8 39 37 1 0 21.62
46.5 got him! A poor stroke from Sinclair who drove at it too early, the ball looping back to Collingwood who dived forward and to his left to take a tumbling catch. He made it look very easy indeed 129/3
View dismissal LRPL Taylor c & b Pietersen 120 322 235 18 0 51.06
126.2 the change has worked! Taylor goes to swipe across the line and a top edge loops up and is in the air for a while before Pietersen walks over to take a straightforward catch 425/7
View dismissal JDP Oram c Cook b Hoggard 10 30 29 0 0 34.48
69.1 got him! Another excellent catch by Cook as Oram drives loosely outside his off stump - his feet planted. The ball flies to Cook's left at gully who dives and takes a fine, two-handed catch 191/5
View dismissal BB McCullum c †Ambrose b Sidebottom 51 76 55 5 2 92.72
88.1 got him! A very wide ball angled across him from Sidebottom, McCullum tried to flay this through the covers but could only toe-end it through to Ambrose who took a simple low catch 277/6
View dismissal DL Vettori* c Strauss b Collingwood 88 198 134 11 1 65.67
135.1 goddim! Excellent ball from Collingwood, angling across the left hander who tried to dab it past Strauss, at a wide lone slip, who dived to his right to hold a relatively simple chance 451/8
KD Mills not out 25 57 44 5 0 56.81
View dismissal JS Patel c Strauss b Sidebottom 5 15 9 1 0 55.55
138.2 well bowled and a safe catch from Strauss at first slip. Angling across Patel who drove at it without moving his feet, Strauss taking the edge low to his left 470/9
View dismissal CS Martin b Sidebottom 0 1 1 0 0 0.00
138.3 got him, cleaned him up! Full, straight and Martin completely missed it - his off stump cartwheeling backwards to end New Zealand's innings 470/10

View dismissal MJ Hoggard c Fleming b Martin 2 9 7 0 0 28.57
38.3 short ball outside off, Hoggard fends straight to first slip and the nightwatchman experiment fails, the batsman stuck on the crease as the leg cutter comes in 86/2
View dismissal AJ Strauss b Vettori 43 130 118 5 0 36.44
73.3 oh yes, flighted and full, Strauss goes to drive, the ball dips and rips out of the footmarks between bat and pad and clatters into his stumps 159/4
View dismissal KP Pietersen c & b Vettori 42 203 131 2 1 32.06
115.2 GONE! Pietersen took half a step down the pitch, bat-padding this away but the ball ballooned back to Vettori who dives to his left and takes a very fine catch 245/6
View dismissal IR Bell b Mills 25 88 88 4 0 28.40

View dismissal PD Collingwood lbw b Oram 66 240 182 9 1 36.26
159.3 up there pitching outside off, coming back in line with middle and leg but high, and Collingwood goes, trapped in front. 335/7
View dismissal TR Ambrose c Fleming b Patel 55 195 164 5 0 33.53

View dismissal JM How c Hoggard b Sidebottom 39 120 85 6 0 45.88
27.3 got him! What a catch from Hoggard at deep midwicket. It was on his toes and How clipped it with great timing and it appeared to be sailing for six until Hoggard, running to his left on the boundary, leapt up high and took it with both hands, almost behind him. A wonderful catch 99/2
View dismissal MD Bell c †Ambrose b Sidebottom 0 2 2 0 0 0.00
0.3 gone! After two leg-side deliveries Sidebottom finds the spot on off stump, angling across the right hander who prods forward without great conviction. A touch of extra bounce, the ball clips the outside edge and loops through to Ambrose who takes it low 1/1
View dismissal SP Fleming c Cook b Sidebottom 66 129 88 7 1 75.00
29.6 gone! Cook's pulled off another good catch diving away to his left at gully as Fleming drove uppishly, attempting another extra cover drive, but he wasn't to the pitch of the ball. Good, low catch by Cook 109/3
View dismissal MS Sinclair c Cook b Sidebottom 2 21 9 0 0 22.22
31.1 this is a quite memorable catch from Cook. Another one! Sinclair drove at a wideish delivery, the ball flying high to Cook's left at tremendous pace. He took off and snaffled it with two hands at full stretch - an absolute corker 115/5
View dismissal BB McCullum c Strauss b Panesar 0 2 2 0 0 0.00
30.3 another one falls! Tossed up by Panesar, McCullum goes for a huge slog-sweep but top-edges it to deep midwicket. Strauss runs around and circles beneath it, clinging onto an excellent catch on the run 110/4
View dismissal LRPL Taylor c & b Panesar 6 39 32 1 0 18.75
38.4 got him! Tossed up by Panesar, well above Taylor's eyesight who drove at it horribly loosely. With one hand off the bat, he got a leading edge and Monty took the simplest of catches straight in front of his face 119/7
View dismissal JDP Oram lbw b Sidebottom 0 1 1 0 0 0.00
31.2 GONE! Trapped in front. Oram's feet were concreted to the crease and he was absolutely plumb - and that's Sidebottom's fifth wicket and his hat-trick. This game is turning, and how! 115/6
View dismissal DL Vettori* c Cook b Sidebottom 35 88 68 6 0 51.47
53.4 outside off, and an ugly swish loops into into the covers where Cook runs back seven or eights yards to hold a simple catch. Not really short enough for that shot and his entertaining cameo comes to and end 173/9
View dismissal KD Mills lbw b Panesar 11 22 14 1 0 78.57

View dismissal MP Vaughan* lbw b Mills 9 32 19 1 0 47.36
7.2 so plumb that Mills didn't even bother to turn round and look at the umpire, instead running down the track and celebrating immediately. Very straight, kept low, the ball nipping back and trapping Vaughan 24/2
