View dismissal BB McCullum c Vaughan b Anderson 16 28 15 2 1 106.66
5.3 gone! What a soft dismissal. McCullum tried to hit it over Anderson's head but skied it to Vaughan at mid-off. The moment he hit it, McCullum swung his bat in frustration 26/1
View dismissal NJ Astle b Collingwood 45 106 63 6 1 71.42
23.4 got him! Sent it wider of Astle, tempting him - perhaps the slower ball too - and Astle tried to smack it through the covers but got a thick inside edge 97/4
View dismissal SP Fleming* b Anderson 12 39 29 1 0 41.37
13.6 goddim! Full and wide, a thick inside edge from Fleming who tried to drive that through the covers but failed to move his feet 61/2
View dismissal LRPL Taylor c Vaughan b Anderson 1 5 7 0 0 14.28
15.4 gone! Anderson has three! Short, rising on Taylor who tries to pull it, but it rushes on him and he skies it to Michael Vaughan at cover 67/3
View dismissal PG Fulton c Vaughan b Flintoff 27 65 52 1 0 51.92
32.1 gone! Two-metre-Peter tries to flick this over Michael Vaughan at short midwicket, but doesn't get enough height and it's well caught in the end by a jubilant England captain...his third catch today 127/5
View dismissal CD McMillan c & b Collingwood 22 59 40 2 0 55.00
37.2 GONE! another one bites the dust for New Zealand who are sliding into a deep hole. A full, drivable ball from Collingwood, but McMillan plays a fraction early and sends it straight back to the bowler or pouches a low catch in his follow through. Continues an excellent spell from Collingwood, whose medium pace is ideally suited to this surface 146/7
View dismissal DL Vettori lbw b Panesar 11 21 17 1 0 64.70
36.4 Monty makes the breakthrough with a full delivery which Vettori tries to sweep but is taken on the pad and umpire Rauf raises his finger. Vettori doesn't look happy and the replays suggest it could be drifting down leg. 144/6
View dismissal JEC Franklin c Collingwood b Flintoff 20 45 30 0 0 66.66
46.4 GONE! important wicket by Flintoff as Franklin tries to go down the ground but doesn't get enough distance on the ball and Collingwood takes a safe catch at long-off. That's New Zealand's main chance of some late boundaries heading back to the shed 185/8
SE Bond not out 22 57 37 1 0 59.45
View dismissal MR Gillespie b Anderson 10 15 10 1 0 100.00
49.6 GONE! four for Anderson and a nice way finish. Gillespie, as he's done all innings, gives himself room but misses and the woodwork is rearranged 205/9

View dismissal AJ Strauss lbw b Franklin 28 79 58 3 0 48.27
17.3 GOT 'IM! Slower ball from Franklin, Strauss tries to work to the on side gets a HUGE inside edge into his pad and Steve Davis raises his finger. Strauss can't believe it, just about sums up his tour, but it's another important wicket for New Zealand who have removed the man who was shaping to bat through the run chase 62/2
View dismissal MP Vaughan* c Taylor b Franklin 17 49 29 3 0 58.62
11.5 GONE! That's the breakthrough for New Zealand and Vaughan's struggles are over. Short of a length and Vaughan goes for his favourite pull but doesn't really connect properly and slaps it straight to Ross Taylor at midwicket. Rather limp shot to be honest and he was clearly thinking about his leg problem, but New Zealand won't care they have their breakthrough 39/1
View dismissal IR Bell lbw b Patel 45 112 72 2 0 62.50
36.5 GONE! That...is...massive. Bell goes back, plays all round a straight one from Patel and is trapped plumb. Asad Rauf raises the finger and it's another example of England's top order failing to build on a start. Huge pressure on Flintoff now. 138/5
View dismissal EC Joyce run out (Patel) 5 29 19 0 0 26.31
23.5 Vettori to Bell, GONE! Pressure tells for New Zealand as Bell pushes towards point and sets off for a quick single, Jeetan Patel produces a direct hit from backward point. It was mighty close but the replays show Joyce's bat was on the line and that belongs to the fielders. It's breakthrough number three. Jitter time for England, New Zealand pumped and playing some fine, tight, cricket. 79/3
View dismissal PD Collingwood c Taylor b Patel 10 22 21 0 0 47.61
30.2 gone! Great work from New Zealand. Collingwood again came down the pitch and, with an ugly, wasteful swish of the bat, slogged across the line and is caught at short midwicket 98/4
A Flintoff not out 72 101 75 7 0 96.00
View dismissal PA Nixon run out (Vettori/†McCullum) 15 57 22 0 0 68.18
47.1 from McMillan, ooh mistimed over cover, that's a poor stroke there but it nevertheless falls safe. They come back for two, oh dear, what's happening here? I think he's run out here! What a dreadful second run that was. 198/6
View dismissal JWM Dalrymple c Patel b Gillespie 1 3 5 0 0 20.00
48.2 that is some catch by Patel! Some catch indeed. Outside off, Dalrymple slashes at it to the left of Patel at point who dives, and takes it low, behind him. Superb and there's still a twist in this match! 201/7
