Anderson to McCullum, no run, 87.2mph, outside off and rising a bit, lets that one go


Anderson to McCullum, no run, bouncer this time, 82.6mph, ducks under that one, a fielder in place for the top edge, remember


Anderson to McCullum, no run, ducks under a bouncer again, doesn't seem to keen to play the pull as yet

New Zealand 102/3   BB McCullum 0* (3b)

Panesar to McCullum, 1 run, tries to lift the ball towards mid-on but only manages a leading edge that pops over the bowlers head, no-man's land that


Panesar to McCullum, no run, takes a stride forward and misses one that pitches on leg and turns a shade away, huge appeal and Panesar is almost sure of the verdict, Taufel says no after a little thought, maybe he was too far forward to give that one, was probably missing leg too

New Zealand 105/3   BB McCullum 1* (5b)

Panesar to McCullum, FOUR, a bit too short, McCullum rocks back and eases that past point for four, he didn't need to strike that too hard but just controlled the steer for four


Panesar to McCullum, SIX, That was straight out of the IPL, huge hit that, a slog sweep that has just got Panesar bemused, in the slot and pelted away ferociously, all the way over midwicket for six, the birds have been woken up


Panesar to McCullum, no run, defended to the off side


Panesar to McCullum, no run, quicker this time, big stride forward and pushing to the bowler


Panesar to McCullum, OUT, Got 'em, tossed up and he's nailed a big wicket, he has just been hammered for six but he keeps at the flight, McCullum tries to pelt that through the off side but only gets a thick edge. Paul Collingwood takes a sharp catch at first slip. That appeared to have deflected off the keeper's gloves there. Panesar is over the moon.

BB McCullum c Collingwood b Panesar 11 (14m 10b 1x4 1x6) SR: 110.00

New Zealand 123/4   BB McCullum 11 (10b 1x4 1x6)
