New Zealand tour of England and Scotland, 2008 / Wicket commentary

Overs 1-50  | Overs 51-100

1.5

Anderson to Redmond, OUT, 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

AJ Redmond c Cook b Anderson 0 (7m 5b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

New Zealand 2/1   JM How 2* (6b)   JM Anderson 0.5-0-0-1

7.3

Anderson to How, OUT, 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

JM How c †Ambrose b Anderson 7 (34m 18b 0x4 0x6) SR: 38.88

New Zealand 18/2   JAH Marshall 10* (23b 1x4)   JM Anderson 3.3-1-11-2

12.3

Broad to Taylor, OUT, 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

LRPL Taylor c Collingwood b Broad 19 (24m 20b 3x4 0x6) SR: 95.00

New Zealand 41/3   JAH Marshall 14* (33b 2x4)   SCJ Broad 1.3-0-5-1

23.2

Broad to Marshall, OUT, 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

JAH Marshall c Strauss b Broad 24 (104m 71b 4x4 0x6) SR: 33.80

New Zealand 76/4   BB McCullum 18* (28b 3x4)   SCJ Broad 6.2-1-22-2

31.2

Anderson to Flynn, OUT, 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

DR Flynn b Anderson 9 (36m 32b 2x4 0x6) SR: 28.12

New Zealand 104/5   BB McCullum 32* (44b 5x4)   JM Anderson 8.2-2-23-3

50.1

Panesar to McCullum, OUT, 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

BB McCullum b Panesar 97 (173m 97b 13x4 2x6) SR: 100.00

New Zealand 203/6   JDP Oram 23* (61b 3x4)   MS Panesar 3.1-1-14-1

62.5

Sidebottom to Oram, OUT, 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

JDP Oram c Strauss b Sidebottom 28 (139m 97b 3x4 0x6) SR: 28.86

New Zealand 222/7   DL Vettori 8* (40b 1x4)   RJ Sidebottom 23.5-8-53-1

80.2

Sidebottom to Mills, OUT, rolls his fingers over that one, sends it full and the ball swings right through the helpless defences of Mills

KD Mills b Sidebottom 10 (66m 59b 0x4 0x6) SR: 16.94

New Zealand 258/8   DL Vettori 30* (86b 3x4)   RJ Sidebottom 25.2-9-53-2

82.3

Sidebottom to Southee, OUT, 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

TG Southee b Sidebottom 1 (9m 9b 0x4 0x6) SR: 11.11

New Zealand 260/9   DL Vettori 31* (90b 3x4)   RJ Sidebottom 26.3-10-53-3

86.2

Sidebottom to Vettori, OUT, nipped back from outside off, Vettori offers a terrible shot, in fact he offered no shot to a straight one, and is castled

DL Vettori b Sidebottom 48 (152m 100b 6x4 0x6) SR: 48.00

New Zealand 277/10   CS Martin 0* (13b)   RJ Sidebottom 28.2-12-55-4
