NatWest Series [New Zealand in England] - 2nd ODI

England v New Zealand

New Zealand won by 86 runs

The team are out, England swarming the outfield like red ants, New Zealand in classic black... James Anderson is bowling, Martin Guptill taking strike today

10.40am: "Why are England sticking with Jade Dernbach? They can't use him in the Champions Trophy, so why not plan for if they had injuries in that?" I hate to tell you, Matthew, but if England have to rule out one of Stuart Broad or Steven Finn for the Champions Trophy, Dernbach is the likely insurance policy. The only other bowler in the squad is James Tredwell...

10.35am: There's a Deep Blue Something above the ground, just a couple of puffy clouds on the horizon, which presumably bolstered McCullum's confidence in choosing to bat (not something he's been keen on since Cape Town). Alastair Cook seems happy enough chasing, suggesting that the track will hold up through the day. Both Ian Bell and Eoin Morgan have twice made ODI tons here.

Can I just draw everyone's attention to this, an Aussie suggesting they buddy up with NZ to make a stronger team. "Can I just say as an Australian that it seems grossly unfair that England can rely on their neighbours for players. Imagine if we did and that and borrowed New Zealand players. Imagine our team then, eg. Warner, Watson, Hughes, Williamson, Clarke, Taylor, B McCullum, N McCullum, Southee, Starc, Pattinson. We'd be unbeatable." Oh, Sam...

10.30am: Still waiting for live pictures from the Ageas (nee Rose) Bowl but it sounds like a bright, balmy day on the south coast; could be a fill-your-boots sort of track, too. New Zealand have won a decent toss for the second time in the series... And remember, win here and they'll take the series.

"Southee out! I'm picking breach of team protocol. Surely you wouldn't rotate your form bowler and rest seems ridiculous, have only played a couple of (barely) four day Tests." Southee's a nice boy, isn't he, Eli? McCullum said he was a bit "stiff and sore" at the toss and New Zealand will want him fit as the proverbial string instrument for the Champions Trophy.

And here's Anupam, with the title of Mark Haddon's next novel: "The curious case of Jade Dernbach. I think their is a huge potential in Jade Dernbach which the selectors/team can see but us ordinary fans can't. He keeps failing but keeps to hold a spot in English team. I looked at his domestic record which does not inspire any confidence at all. But I am sure I like the other fans their is something amiss."

10.25am: I told you they had a masterplan... England keep calm and carry on while New Zealand are able to rotate their best bowler from the first match. This is a big game for Chris Woakes, who is part of England's Champions Trophy squad, and also perhaps for Jade Dernbach, whose tag as the most expensive bowler ever to send down 1000 balls in ODI cricket is beginning to hang from his neck like a rather tasteless bit of bling.

Speaking of whom. "Same side as Friday?" splutters Mark. "What does Jade Dernach have to do to be consigned to the outer darkness of south London?" By my calculations, it'll take about 11 more juicy four balls outside off and half-a-dozen misdirected slower deliveries. So could be all done with today then.

10.15am: New Zealand win the toss and bat, they've made one change, with Doug Bracewell in for Tim Southee - not sure if that's rest or rotation. Instead, it's England who are unchanged, so no debut for Rankin. Everyone can just simmer down.

England 1 Alastair Cook (capt), 2 Ian Bell, 3 Jonathan Trott, 4 Joe Root, 5 Eoin Morgan, 6 Jos Buttler (wk), 7 Chris Woakes, 8 Tim Bresnan, 9 Graeme Swann, 10 James Anderson, 11 Jade Dernbach

New Zealand 1 Luke Ronchi (wk), 2 Martin Guptill, 3 Kane Williamson, 4 Ross Taylor, 5 Grant Elliott, 6 Brendon McCullum (capt), 7 James Franklin, 8 Nathan McCullum, 9 Doug Bracewell, 10 Kyle Mills, 11 Mitchell McClenaghan

10am: Well, well. New Zealand love to spoil a party, so we shouldn't be surprised that they came to Lord's and made the hosts look red all over (pretty much literally). England love a plan, but then so did Baldrick and their best-laid ones are beginning to look of the cunning variety a few days before the start of the Champions Trophy. Losing an ODI series at home for the first time since 2009 would not be the ideal preparation - though it would pep up Brendon McCullum's men no end. Anyway, before we find out whether England have been writing cheques their bats can't cash, why not have a read of our preview on today's match and get ready for the toss, which is in about 15 minutes, when we'll find out if Boyd Rankin is to make his England debut.

0.1

Anderson to Guptill, 1 wide, slightly back of a length and seaming away outside off - left alone and for good reason

0.1

Anderson to Guptill, no run, Anderson pitches tighter to the off stump, again a hint of away movement and there's decent bounce and carry as Guptill shoulders arms

0.2

Anderson to Guptill, no run, line and length outside off stump, gets across to cover off stump, leaves it alone

0.3

Anderson to Guptill, no run, that's an absolute snorter from Anderson! Full of a length, angling towards middle, pitching on off and then holding its line to beat the edge as Guptill tries to turn the ball through midwicket. It was only an inch or two from hitting the top of off as well

0.4

Anderson to Guptill, 1 wide, length ball, strays down the leg side and that's another wide

0.4

Anderson to Guptill, no run, swish and a miss from Guptill, slightly nervy start, throwing the bat at a wide one, nothing on it though

0.5

Anderson to Guptill, FOUR, that will settle him, closer to off stump and rising, Guptill plays back and punches square through the off side, plenty of bat on it and the ball races away

0.6

Anderson to Guptill, no run, length and coming back in this time, goes across and raises his bat out of the way

"Sam's idea is about as good as his selections," admonishes Andrew. "I mean really, why would you select 'b Martin c Guptil' Hughes?"

End of over 1 (6 runs) New Zealand 6/0 (RR: 6.00)
MJ Guptill    4* (6b 1x4)      JM Anderson    1-0-6-0
L Ronchi    0* (0b)     

Tim Bresnan gets the new ball today, ahead of Dernbach... He'll be delivering before his wife, then

1.1

Bresnan to Ronchi, 1 wide, slightly back of a length, speared in and there's no seam movement, heads down the leg side for a wide

1.1

Bresnan to Ronchi, no run, in the channel outside off, Ronchi gets forward and lets it through

1.2

Bresnan to Ronchi, no run, this is shortish and over the top of off, coming back in and cramping Ronchi, who blocks

1.3

Bresnan to Ronchi, no run, another delivery seaming in, clouts Ronchi on his protective gear as the bat scissors down at an angle

1.4

Bresnan to Ronchi, no run, back of a length and rising sharply in the channel outside off stump, left alone

1.5

Bresnan to Ronchi, no run, at the body, short of a length and jabbed towards square leg from the crease

1.6

Bresnan to Ronchi, 2 runs, sloppy fielding from Morgan gifts Ronchi his first runs as a New Zealand international, guiding one off the back foot towards point and the ball bobbles through the hands

Decent start from Bresnan, though, up above 85mph for most of that over

End of over 2 (3 runs) New Zealand 9/0 (RR: 4.50)
L Ronchi    2* (6b)      TT Bresnan    1-0-3-0
MJ Guptill    4* (6b 1x4)      JM Anderson    1-0-6-0

2.1

Anderson to Guptill, no run, perhaps lucky not to be called wide here, jagging away off the pitch and over the tramlines as Guptill watches it by

2.2

Anderson to Guptill, no run, tighter, in the corridor of disquietude, another watchful leave

We're going to have a break here as Anderson needs a new set of boots. "There are only two Kiwis I'd ever want in an Australian team: Vettori and Hadlee. I'm sure they've both got a bit of Aussie blood in them somewhere..." They'd probably still get a game, eh, Rupes

2.3

Anderson to Guptill, 3 runs, pitched up outside off stump, Guptill crunches a drive straight at mid-off ... and another misfield gifts New Zealand three more runs

2.4

Anderson to Ronchi, no run, in and out, good line outside off, left alone

2.5

Anderson to Ronchi, no run, pitched on a length in the channel, straightens a little and Ronchi leaves

2.6

Anderson to Ronchi, OUT, this one doesn't leave the batsman but Ronchi realises too late and is castled, top of off stump! This is exemplary stuff from Anderson, setting up Ronchi, who knows he's back in international cricket now... Two had shaped away outside off, this went on with Anderson's arm, whip-crack fast and straight through the batsman's defence, a big gap between bat and pad

L Ronchi b Anderson 2 (13m 9b 0x4 0x6) SR: 22.22

End of over 3 (3 runs) New Zealand 12/1 (RR: 4.00)

MJ Guptill    7* (9b 1x4)      TT Bresnan    1-0-3-0

3.1

Bresnan to Guptill, no run, length ball outside off, Guptill stands tall and plays out towards point

3.2

Bresnan to Guptill, no run, short and at the batsman, tapped defensively into the leg side

3.3

Bresnan to Guptill, no run, good off-stump line, gets across and defends from the crease

3.4

Bresnan to Guptill, no run, again the batsman covers his off stump and blocks a short-of-a-length ball from the crease

3.5

Bresnan to Guptill, no run, pitched up a little further, on drive, punched on the half volley towards mid-on, where it's grabbed this time

3.6

Bresnan to Guptill, no run, shortish and tight around the off stump, defended solidly on the back foot - maiden from Brezzie lad

"Not Tom Groube, Brendon Julian or Clarrie Grimmett, Rupes?" murmurs Andrew

End of over 4 (maiden) New Zealand 12/1 (RR: 3.00)
MJ Guptill    7* (15b 1x4)      TT Bresnan    2-1-3-0
KS Williamson    0* (0b)      JM Anderson    2-0-9-1

Kane Williamson, the No. 3, to face his first ball...

4.1

Anderson to Williamson, no run, back of a length, angling back in from outside off, chops down defensively

4.2

Anderson to Williamson, no run, bit more width, Williamson stays back and steers the ball to point

4.3

Anderson to Williamson, no run, this one nearly sneaks through, little deviation back off the pitch and it clips Williamson's inside edge before plopping behind the flap of his pad

4.4

Anderson to Williamson, no run, pitched up again and ducking back as the batsman walks across his stumps, another inside edge this time into the front leg and rolling short on the leg side

4.5

Anderson to Williamson, 3 runs, good footwork from Williamson, gets to the pitch outside off and neatly punches through a gap in the covers for three

4.6

Anderson to Guptill, no run, good length, around the top of off, defended solidly back down the track

England have started well, a couple of misfields aside... but Guptill looks in good touch again

End of over 5 (3 runs) New Zealand 15/1 (RR: 3.00)
MJ Guptill    7* (16b 1x4)      JM Anderson    3-0-12-1
KS Williamson    3* (5b)      TT Bresnan    2-1-3-0

Little bit of magic spray for Bresnan ... still no news on the bairn

5.1

Bresnan to Williamson, 2 runs, length ball, wide of the stumps and carved off the back foot wide of third man for a couple

5.2

Bresnan to Williamson, no run, slightly fuller, seaming back in and beats Williamson on the inside, hitting the thigh pad

5.3

Bresnan to Williamson, no run, angled in towards the stumps, shuffles across and taps to leg

5.4

Bresnan to Williamson, FOUR, superbly timed from Williamson, just a nudge off the front pad and the ball takes off like a labrador after a butterfly, bouncing exuberantly across the outfield wide of mid-on

5.5

Bresnan to Williamson, 1 run, bit of width outside off stump and cut behind point for a single

5.6

Bresnan to Guptill, 3 runs, more good timing from Guptill, waiting on a slightly short delivery outside off and forcing a back-foot drive in front of square, Morgan just pulling it in before the rope

End of over 6 (10 runs) New Zealand 25/1 (RR: 4.16)
MJ Guptill    10* (17b 1x4)      TT Bresnan    3-1-13-0
KS Williamson    10* (10b 1x4)      JM Anderson    3-0-12-1

Here's Dave continuing the heretical thought of a trans-Tasman alliance: "Good idea re the combined Aus-NZ team. My lineup: Ronchi, Guptill, Williamson, Taylor, Elliot, BMac, Vettori, NMac, Southee, Mills, McLennaghan. Any questions?"

6.1

Anderson to Guptill, no run, coming in, off a length, worked off the pads from in front of the wicket

6.2

Anderson to Guptill, no run, goes back to a length ball outside off and chops into the covers

6.3

Anderson to Guptill, no run, defended from the crease, maybe stays a touch low and hits near the toe of the bat

6.4

Anderson to Guptill, 1 run, angling in towards middle and off, clipped square and they nick a quick one

Still two slips in for Williamson...

6.5

Anderson to Williamson, no run, fullish length around off stump, already the ball has gone a bit quiet, defended on the front foot

6.6

Anderson to Williamson, no run, another solid forward defensive meets a length ball outside off, they shake hands, exchange pleasantries and continue on their way

End of over 7 (1 run) New Zealand 26/1 (RR: 3.71)
KS Williamson    10* (12b 1x4)      JM Anderson    4-0-13-1
MJ Guptill    11* (21b 1x4)      TT Bresnan    3-1-13-0

7.1

Bresnan to Guptill, no run, gets across his stumps and blocks a length ball outside off

7.2

Bresnan to Guptill, no run, angling in, good bounce off a length for Bres, jabbed carefully into the ground towards midwicket

7.3

Bresnan to Guptill, no run, beaten on the inside - again maybe stayed down a little? - no foot movement from Guptill and the ball nipped back as he swung hard at it

7.4

Bresnan to Guptill, 1 run, drops a length ball short on the leg side and they rotate the strike

7.5

Bresnan to Williamson, no run, good length delivery in the channel, shaping back in but Williamson is comfortable leaving

7.6

Bresnan to Williamson, no run, front-foot defensive to a length delivery outside off

End of over 8 (1 run) New Zealand 27/1 (RR: 3.37)
KS Williamson    10* (14b 1x4)      TT Bresnan    4-1-14-0
MJ Guptill    12* (25b 1x4)      JM Anderson    4-0-13-1

"I thought England had great depth?" rails Ryan. "Dernbach one replacement, and the other an Irishman? Gimme a break! If Anderson gets injured the Ashes could actually be interesting."

8.1

Anderson to Guptill, no run, around the off stump, fullish and punched towards mid-on

8.2

Anderson to Guptill, no run, shorter and in the channel outside off, tapped square off the back foot

8.3

Anderson to Guptill, no run, gets across to defend a full-length ball around off

8.4

Anderson to Guptill, no run, very full, wide of the stumps, pretty much a half volley and Guptill creams it straight to Graeme Swann standing at short extra cover

8.5

Anderson to Guptill, 1 run, on the stumps, edges across and flicks one to fine leg

8.6

Anderson to Williamson, 1 run, drops a touch short and Williamson waits, dabs a single through gully with an angled bat

End of over 9 (2 runs) New Zealand 29/1 (RR: 3.22)
KS Williamson    11* (15b 1x4)      JM Anderson    5-0-15-1
MJ Guptill    13* (30b 1x4)      TT Bresnan    4-1-14-0

First change of the morning, here's Chris Woakes *gulp*

9.1

Woakes to Williamson, no run, touch short and wide, steered from the crease to the man at point

"I'm pretty sure Michael Clarke would make it into an NZ XI," suggests Matt, "we can trade him for the Phantom."

9.2

Woakes to Williamson, 1 run, length ball, on the stumps, worked fine of mid-on for a quick single

9.3

Woakes to Guptill, no run, slightly short, doesn't quite get up and Guptill is hit on the knee roll trying to play across the line

9.4

Woakes to Guptill, 2 runs, dropped, a howler from Trott, though it came at him fast! Woakes tried a short ball and Guptill seized on it, connected with a hard pull shot but it was straight at midwicket, bursting through the hands and deflating Woakes just a little further

9.5

Woakes to Guptill, no run, around off stump, back of a length and Guptill defends this one

9.6

Woakes to Guptill, FOUR, and there's further pain for Chris Woakes, too short and straight, pulled with the minimum of fuss in front of square, another solid connection and that's a boundary to end the over

"Tremlett took a few yesterday," chirrups Christopher. "Is Darren Pattinson playing in England somewhere?"

End of over 10 (7 runs) New Zealand 36/1 (RR: 3.60)
MJ Guptill    19* (34b 2x4)      CR Woakes    1-0-7-0
KS Williamson    12* (17b 1x4)      JM Anderson    5-0-15-1

Changes at both ends, with De-na-de-na-de-na-de-na-Dernbach replacing Anderson

10.1

Dernbach to Williamson, 3 runs, on the stumps, too straight to begin with and clipped firmly between midwicket and mid-on

10.2

Dernbach to Guptill, 2 runs, pitched up outside the line of off stump, punched through the covers, there's a sweeper in place but they get back for two

10.3

Dernbach to Guptill, 1 wide, slides down the leg side for more extras

10.3

Dernbach to Guptill, 1 run, length ball nudged off the pads through square leg

10.4

Dernbach to Williamson, no run, better line from Dernbach, driven on the up from outside off towards mid-on

Dernbach to Williamson, no run, length delivery around off stump, Williamson gets forward and defends

10.6

Dernbach to Williamson, no run, length, touch wider, played from back in the crease into the ground out towards point

Here's Hamid: "@Ryan ... I think the English team has replacements in the fast bowling department. Watching the U 19 World Cup early this year Jamie Overton and Reece Topley looked impressive"

End of over 11 (7 runs) New Zealand 43/1 (RR: 3.90)
KS Williamson    15* (21b 1x4)      JW Dernbach    1-0-7-0
MJ Guptill    22* (36b 2x4)      CR Woakes    1-0-7-0

11.1

Woakes to Guptill, no run, pitched up around the line of off stump, punched back

"The fielding was the one area that wasn't below par from England last game. Not a good start here," says John, shaking his head

11.2

Woakes to Guptill, no run, drags his length down, over the top of the stumps, Guptill tucks it into the leg side

11.3

Woakes to Guptill, no run, goes back and across and shows a length ball a straight bat in defence

11.4

Woakes to Guptill, 2 runs, on the pads, again a touch short and nudged into a gap at midwicket

11.5

Woakes to Guptill, 1 wide, slides down the leg side, slightly back of length, Guptill misses with a glance but it's called wide

11.5

Woakes to Guptill, FOUR, half a chance but Cook's superman effort at mid-on, though worthy of his coloured pajamas, fails to get there as Guptill hits through the line, driving on the up and lofting four to long-off

11.6

Woakes to Guptill, 2 runs, straight, length delivery, worked through midwicket for another couple

Alex seems pretty confident with this prediction: "Guptill will shortly signal the dressing room to change his bat for a scythe - hay will now be made with these two bowling."

End of over 12 (9 runs) New Zealand 52/1 (RR: 4.33)
MJ Guptill    30* (42b 3x4)      CR Woakes    2-0-16-0
KS Williamson    15* (21b 1x4)      JW Dernbach    1-0-7-0

12.1

Dernbach to Williamson, 2 runs, drops short, around middle and off, Williamson hooks and loses his footing in the process, deep square leg has to run round to cut it off

12.2

Dernbach to Williamson, no run, coming back in towards the stumps, played back down the track

12.3

Dernbach to Williamson, no run, pitched up on off stump and driven to mid-on

12.4

Dernbach to Williamson, 1 run, goes back and taps a short delivery wide of point for a single

Dernbach to Guptill, 1 run, decent line, outside off and rising off a good length, Guptill plays it late, opening the face to glide one to third man

12.6

Dernbach to Williamson, no run, and there's the Dernbach slowie, well directed and Williamson picks it, defending stoutly in front of the wicket

"Dernbach's last over was mathematically beautiful... a reverse fibonacci series (3-2-1-1-0-0-0) just the way god intended it to be (considering cricket does not allow negative numbers)." Ash is the first person to find something impressive in Dernbach's numbers

End of over 13 (4 runs) New Zealand 56/1 (RR: 4.30)
KS Williamson    18* (26b 1x4)      JW Dernbach    2-0-11-0

Woakes to Williamson, 1 run, length ball on the stumps, waits and taps one through leg

Woakes to Williamson, 1 run, line and length outside off, soft hands from Williamson drops the ball short on the off side and they scamper another single

KS Williamson    20* (29b 1x4)      JW Dernbach    2-0-11-0

Time for spin but Alastair "Kerazy" Cook is not going with Graeme Swann, oh no - here's Joe "Champion of the World" Root

14.1

Root to Williamson, no run, tossed up on middle and leg stump, tries to work through midwicket but it hits the pad

14.2

Root to Williamson, 1 run, length ball outside off, Williamson presses forward and then drops back to make room for a cut through point

14.3

Root to Guptill, 1 run, floated up around leg stump, nudged through square leg for one - that's the fifty partnership between these two

14.4

Root to Williamson, 1 run, flatter, on off stump, punched off the back foot to long-on

14.5

Root to Guptill, 1 run, length ball on the stumps, tickled back past the bowler for another single to long-on

14.6

Root to Williamson, no run, goes back to a delivery floated up outside off, steers to backward point

"Which Dernbach slowie? Doesn't he have 60 of them, and bowls each one once per innings?" He does, Isaac, but only he can tell the difference between them

End of over 15 (4 runs) New Zealand 64/1 (RR: 4.26)
KS Williamson    22* (33b 1x4)      JE Root    1-0-4-0
MJ Guptill    35* (48b 3x4)      CR Woakes    3-0-20-0

15.1

Woakes to Guptill, 1 run, waits on a length ball outside off and dabs short of backward point

15.2

Woakes to Williamson, 2 runs, short and wide and cracked behind square off the back foot, looks like four written all over it but Root slides on his belly round the rope wide of third man and saves a couple

15.3

Woakes to Williamson, no run, pitched up in the channel, brings the bat down late and squeezes it to backward point

15.4

Woakes to Williamson, FOUR, wide full toss, Williamson drives but plays slightly outside the line, gets a thin edge which sends it skittering past Buttler for a four in pretty much the opposite direction to where he was aiming

15.5

Woakes to Williamson, no run, tight around off stump, short of a length and defended down on to the pitch

15.6

Woakes to Williamson, 2 runs, too straight, length ball whipped off the pads over midwicket, not the cleanest of connections and the man in the deep gets round

End of over 16 (9 runs) New Zealand 73/1 (RR: 4.56)
KS Williamson    30* (38b 2x4)      CR Woakes    4-0-29-0

Root to Williamson, 1 run, pushed through a bit flatter outside off stump, Williamson gets forward and pushes into a gap at cover

16.3

Root to Guptill, 1 run, length delivery outside off, sits back and chops one to the sweeper in the covers

16.4

Root to Williamson, no run, little bit of spin for Root here, the ball jumping back at Williamson as he tries to cut

16.5

Root to Williamson, 1 run, floated up on the stumps, gets out of the crease and nudges one through midwicket

16.6

Root to Guptill, 2 runs, a touch short again, outside off and this doesn't spin much, forced in front of square off the back foot

On come the drinks - Manhattens for New Zealand, Screwballs for England. "Joe Root can do no wrong at this moment," says Craig. "Really hope he continues his form and surely he'll develop into one of the best batsmen around! Always helps that he can bowl too!"

End of over 17 (6 runs) New Zealand 79/1 (RR: 4.64)
MJ Guptill    40* (52b 3x4)      JE Root    2-0-10-0

Dernbach continues to frustrate

17.1

Dernbach to Williamson, no run, full and straight, maybe another slower one, Williamson gets behind it to defend

17.2

Dernbach to Williamson, 1 run, on the stumps, length ball and turned through backward square

17.3

Dernbach to Guptill, no run, lively bouncer from Dernbach - for all his variations, he's got serious pace - and this zings through as Williamson pulls out of the shot. Questionable on height but Davis seems happy

17.4

Dernbach to Guptill, no run, shortish, around middle and off, blocked into the covers

17.5

Dernbach to Guptill, 1 run, drops too short and wide, Guptill scythes a cut shot through point but the sweeper cleans up

17.6

Dernbach to Williamson, FOUR, out the back of the hand but very wide - probably would have been called if Williamson didn't get a scrape of bat on it, the ball runs fine of third man and that's another cheap boundary

End of over 18 (6 runs) New Zealand 85/1 (RR: 4.72)

Time for Graeme Swann, with England gasping for a wicket...

18.1

Swann to Guptill, FOUR, short and wide, bit of a loosener and it's duly crunched in front of square, really good connection and the fielder in the deep can't get round

18.2

Swann to Guptill, 1 run, tossed up straighter, gets forward and taps to long-on

18.3

Swann to Williamson, no run, pushed through outside off, played back down the track

18.4

18.6

Swann to Williamson, no run, flatter, wide of the wicket, Williamson gets forward and blocks into the covers

End of over 19 (7 runs) New Zealand 92/1 (RR: 4.84)

19.1

Dernbach to Guptill, 1 run, short of a length and in the channel outside off, stays back and guides to third man

Here's Jordan: "Woakes just isn't good enough to be a main bowler at international level, he should be bowling a couple of extra overs like Luke Wright or Ravi Bopara. When bowling 8-10 overs he is dangerously exposed as the average bowler he is"

19.2

Dernbach to Williamson, 1 run, floated up wide of the stumps, nice and drivable, though Williamson is a little lucky that his inside edge flies past the stumps to fine leg

19.3

Dernbach to Guptill, 1 run, back of a length and worked through the leg side

19.4

Dernbach to Williamson, no run, good effort ball from Dernbach, banged in outside off, defended on the back foot

19.5

Dernbach to Williamson, 2 runs, dug in short again and Williamson takes this on, pulling aerially over midwicket, cries of "catch!" from the bowler but it lands safely

19.6

Dernbach to Williamson, 1 run, length ball wide of the wicket, again comfortably dabbed to third man for one

"It makes no sense that the colour of the ball should affect Guptill success as he seems to have a decent technique and a good head," observes Andrew. "But he looks a different player against the white ball."

20.3

20.5

Swann to Williamson, 1 run, tossed up and played down the ground

20.6

Swann to Guptill, FOUR, another edge from Guptill, still not entirely convincing against spin, but there's no slip and it skitters away for four

End of over 21 (9 runs) New Zealand 107/1 (RR: 5.09)
MJ Guptill    55* (63b 5x4)      GP Swann    2-0-16-0

21.2

21.3

Dernbach to Guptill, no run, full of a length and wide of the stumps, Guptill chops into the ground off a bottom edge

21.4

Dernbach to Guptill, 1 run, pitched up and steered through the covers

21.5

Dernbach to Williamson, 1 run, full and outside the line of off, driven into a gap - that's the hundred partnership, at just over five an over

21.6

Dernbach to Guptill, no run, short of a length, seaming back a touch and cramping the cut, fielded in the covers

Here's Ashif: "@Andrew Same thing could be said about Shane Watson. World class player in limited-overs cricket but woefully average when wearing whites. Some players are just meant for certain formats."

23.5

Woakes to Guptill, SIX, this is a monstrous shot from Guptill, he pulls it high into the crowd at deep midwicket with a flowing golf swing of the bat - it was barely even a short ball but still got the treatment

23.6

Woakes to Guptill, 1 run, this is length again, wide of the stumps and steered down to third man

"England going from being a favourite for the champions trophy to underdogs during the course of this ODI series." It's the English way, Robbie

24.4

Swann to Williamson, OUT, tossed up high, under-edged and gone, clattering the timber!

30.2

Swann to Taylor, no run, off stump, it was the slider, played to cover on the front foot

30.3

Clevs: "Watching Hampshire this year in the YB40...they knocked off 235 in 40 so NZ will need 300 to be competitive,its a great batting wicket." England could do with a player in as good form as Michael Carberry too...Jade Dernbach, in a Powerplay! Are you mad Cooky...

39.2

Bresnan to Taylor, FOUR, but this is a poor ball, back of a length outside off and hammered backward of point, Taylor goes to fiftty, that is his zone

LRPL Taylor    54* (51b 3x4 1x6)      TT Bresnan    8-1-42-0

Anderson returns from the Pavilion End, three overs to bowl for him...

41.1

Anderson to Taylor, 1 leg bye, length ball on the stumps, goes to whip it away on the leg side, runs off the pad to short long leg

41.2

Anderson to Guptill, 1 run, fuller ball on the stumps, tucked to midwicket on the edge of the circle

41.3

Anderson to Taylor, SIX, full on the stumps again but Taylor gets under this really well and clears the midwicket rope, great timing, just a flick and it sailed over the rope

41.4

Anderson to Taylor, OUT, goes again but this has gone up rather than long and Woakes takes the catch at long leg. That is a fine catch cause it went a long long way up, a top edge from Taylor attempted the same stroke over the leg side

LRPL Taylor c Woakes b Anderson 60 (72m 54b 3x4 2x6) SR: 111.11

What a platform for McBren...

41.5

Anderson to Guptill, 2 runs, length ball a little too wide and driven past cover, chase for the sweeper and they get two

41.6

Anderson to Guptill, 1 run, stays in the crease and dabs a ball from just outside off backward of point

Anderson now level with Darren Gough as England's leading wicket-taker in ODIs...

Swann's last over, Northern End...

42.1

Swann to Guptill, 2 runs, length ball, stays in the crease and flicks behind point, well placed, deep cover point runs to his right to field

42.2

Swann to Guptill, 1 run, same stroke, this time gets it squarer so the sweeper can save the second run

42.3

Swann to BB McCullum, 1 leg bye, goes reverse-sweeping first ball, gets some glove on it towards backward point does he, nope just off the pad

42.4

Swann to Guptill, SIX, step down the wicket and a lofted on drive, gets just enough on it to beat a diving Joe Root, he got a solid couple of hands to it but couldn't hold on and would have carried it over anyway

42.5

Swann to Guptill, no run, flick back to the bowler

42.6

Swann to Guptill, FOUR, another flick but this time chips it over the bowler, no-one at home at long off and gets four, great timing again, races away

43.2

Anderson to BB McCullum, no run, length ball just outside off, pushed to point

43.3

Anderson to BB McCullum, 3 runs, down the track and goes for a lofted off drive, doesn't get all of it and it teases Cook running back at mid-off, he dives and can only get a finger to it, very tough chance, if a chance at all

43.4

Anderson to Guptill, FOUR, full of length on the off stump, hoiked to cow corner, powerful strike again

43.5

Anderson to Guptill, 1 run, length back outside the off stump, pushed to backward point

Deep cover comes in and long off goes back...

Same field for McBren, off side is available...

44.6

End of over 45 (12 runs) New Zealand 280/3 (RR: 6.22)

MJ Guptill    139* (136b 11x4 2x6)      JM Anderson    9-0-48-2

Bresnan replacing Anderson...

45.1

Bresnan to BB McCullum, 1 run, full and straight, driven down to long on, almost managing to decapitate Guptill

45.2

Bresnan to Guptill, 1 run, full and straight again, forced down to long on, Bairstow is in quickly to prevent the second

45.3

Bresnan to BB McCullum, SIX, slower ball on the stumps and McBren gets down and slog sweeps it into the crowd over square leg, very well struck

Guptill goes past the highest individual ODI total on this ground, beating Hashim Amla's 150 last year...Anderson's last over now...

47.1

Anderson to Guptill, FOUR, full on off stump, a wild swing and gets a thick outside edge wide of short third man, deserves a bit of luck

47.2

Anderson to Guptill, 1 run, full and straight again, this time gets a better connection but a worse result, finds long off

47.3

Anderson to BB McCullum, FOUR, low full toss, hammered into the deep where Trott takes a great catch! Oh no he steps over the rope but gets rid of it, steps back inside the rope but has no idea where the ball is as he swivelled going over the boundary, the ball lands near the rope and has this gone for four in the end as Trott recovers? TV umpire checking and gives four, Trott nor Cook are happy with the call

47.4

Anderson to BB McCullum, 1 run, full on off stump, slapped down to long off

47.5

Anderson to Guptill, 1 run, full toss on off stump, swung into the leg side, out to Trott again, successfully fields this time

48.1

Bresnan to Guptill, 2 runs, full of length on middle and leg, clipped out to deep square leg

48.2

Bresnan to Guptill, 2 runs, good yorker but no-one in the ring on the leg side so they get two more, very well ran again

England really losing their way and they're going to be chasing a cricket score now...oh, hang on that doesn't actually work when you're watching cricket...113 runs off the last nine overs...Dernbach to bowl the last one...

49.1

Dernbach to BB McCullum, FOUR, full and straight, slapped over the bowler's head, great strike

100 partnership in just 45 balls...

49.2

Dernbach to BB McCullum, 1 run, full again, slaps this into the off side where extra cover saves well with the right-hand, does well

49.3

Dernbach to Guptill, 2 runs, full outside off, swung off an edge down to long off so it runs slowly to the fielder and they get two more

49.4

Dernbach to Guptill, FOUR, full toss outside off, slapped down to wide third man, no-ball surely? It was definitely above waist height

49.5

Dernbach to Guptill, FOUR, wide of off stump, swung at and comes off a thick outside edge to fine third man, poor ball really, short of a length and well wide

49.6

Dernbach to Guptill, FOUR, full on the off stump, swung at and, oh, can you adam and eve it, squirts off a big inside edge and runs to fine leg for four

2.25pm BST, lunch Well once again, Martin Guptill has led from the front. At Lord's he was guiding a chase but here he has been the mainstay of a huge total. He's made the highest score by a New Zealander in an ODI and the Kiwis have racked up the sixth-highest total in their ODI history. England were run ragged in the field and pummelled in the last 10 overs. They will need the second-highest successful chase in ODI history to keep the series alive, good game to win then. Monty back with you in 35 mins or so...

End of over 50 (19 runs) New Zealand 359/3
MJ Guptill    189* (155b 19x4 2x6)      JW Dernbach    10-0-87-0
BB McCullum    40* (19b 3x4 2x6)      TT Bresnan    10-1-73-0
