40.4

Anderson to Oram, no run, fine ball first up, 86mph, outside off and a thick edge pops up towards the on side, he was too tentative there

40.5

Anderson to Oram, FOUR, not in control but he's managed four, pokes and gets a thick edge towards third man for four

40.6

Anderson to Oram, 4 leg byes, scorcher again, brute of a short one, finally the pitch showing it's bounce here, Oram knew a short one was on the cards but that's clattered him on the helmet and deflected away for four to third man, he had no clue there and it's rattled him, struck flush on the helmet, Anderson is on fire here

New Zealand 144/4   JDP Oram 4* (3b 1x4)
41.4

Sidebottom to Oram, no run, short of a length and testing him just outside off, pushed to extra cover and a loud 'Wait there'

41.6

Sidebottom to Oram, no run, teasing again, outside off, keeps it straight, left alone

New Zealand 149/4   JDP Oram 4* (6b 1x4)
42.3

Anderson to Oram, no run, surprise, surprise, short one and that's directed at his face, Oram stands up tall and plays that in the most awkward fashion, fending dangerously, strikes his glove this time

42.4

Anderson to Oram, 1 run, another short one and he's in all sorts of trouble here, very well directed again, on the back foot and poking anxiously, the ball takes the glove and pops to the off side, no silly point in place, he takes a single

New Zealand 155/4   JDP Oram 5* (8b 1x4)
43.1

Sidebottom to Oram, no run, curving away from the left-hander, left alone

43.2

Sidebottom to Oram, no run, this time it straightens in, Oram lets it go again, good judgement but Sidebottom is varying them well

43.3

Sidebottom to Oram, no run, short one again, Oram is not playing these bouncers well at all, a half-hearted push to that and that could have popped up to extra cover, still no silly point, what's up Vaughney?

43.4

Sidebottom to Oram, no run, shoulders arms to one outside off

43.5

Sidebottom to Oram, no run, too wide outside off, doesn't need to play at that one

45.1

Sidebottom to Oram, no run, punched to the off side, good-length ball that

45.2

Sidebottom to Oram, FOUR, he's broken the shackles, it's on middle and angling into leg, too full and he's spanked that through midwicket for four, that was too easy for Oram

45.3

Sidebottom to Oram, no run, patted back to the bowler

45.4

Sidebottom to Oram, no run, short one but not too well directed, Oram doesn't need to do much to get out of the way, waste of a bouncer

47.1

Sidebottom to Oram, no run, leans forward to on drive to mid-on

47.2

Sidebottom to Oram, no run, full one that's driven back in the air, just falls short of the bowler, that could have easily popped back

47.3

47.4

Sidebottom to Oram, no run, short again, but not well directed, left alone again

47.5

New Zealand 178/4   JDP Oram 10* (26b 2x4)
48.1

Broad to Oram, no run, short one again, they may just be over-doing this now, left alone since it's too far outside off

48.2

Broad to Oram, no run, that's better, short and jags back into the left-hander, pitches outside off and moves in, Oram is struck on the glove and it deflects onto his stomach, a bit of pain there

48.3

Broad to Oram, no run, round the wicket, good-length one this time but it takes off after bouncing, Oram tries to flay that but is done in by the bounce

48.4

Broad to Oram, no run, left alone, interestingly Ian Bell is standing at a short backward point position, there is a plan for sure

48.5

Broad to Oram, no run, jags back in again, that strikes the bat handle and nearly goes to Bell in the position I was talking about

48.6

Broad to Oram, no run, backs away and tries to slash that but it was too close to cut and he nearly played it on, could have edge to the keeper as well, some extra bounce there, what a horrendous shot that

50.3

Broad to Oram, no run, wide of the off stump, angling into the left hander

50.4

Broad to Oram, 1 run, ooh, pulled over midwicket and Pietersen jogs around to field. Oh, but he sends in the most hapless of throws - an awful throw and Ambrose chastises him, rightly so

53.5

Panesar to Oram, 1 run, worked away towards mid-on and the 200 comes up, that was a good ball and he needed to watch the ball till the end

New Zealand 200/4   JDP Oram 22* (46b 4x4)

54.2

Broad to Oram, 2 runs, on the pads this time, tucked away for a quick couple, nice ball to get first up

New Zealand 206/4   JDP Oram 24* (58b 4x4)
58.1

Broad to Oram, no run, the short-ball salvo continues, round the wicket angle, gets the ball into the left-hander, and he's ducking and weaving out of the way, this is getting too predictable from Broad

58.2

Broad to Oram, 1 run, short of a length, Oram waits for that and glides it past the slips towards third man

New Zealand 217/4   JDP Oram 25* (60b 4x4)

New Zealand 226/4   JDP Oram 28* (65b 4x4)
60.2

Broad to Oram, no run, short one this time, on the toes and dropped down, on his toes

60.3

Broad to Oram, no run, 83.1mph, that's dangerous, Oram backs away to cut that through point but the under-edge nearly goes onto rattle the stumps, that was a poor shot, he's backing away because he's expecting the short one, that was perilously close

60.4

Broad to Oram, no run, short again, pitching on middle and angling in, Oram deals with that OK, ducking and weaving, keeping his eyes on the ball

60.5

New Zealand 229/4   JDP Oram 29* (69b 4x4)

New Zealand 232/4   JDP Oram 31* (71b 4x4)
62.1

Broad to Oram, 2 runs, that's loose, wide of the stumps and a lazy waft away from the body, goes through to deep point but that was a loose stroke, again he appears to be backing away expecting the short one

62.2

Broad to Oram, no run, standing on the back foot and pushing watchfully to mid-off, again he seems to be expecting the bouncer and reacting accordingly

62.3

Broad to Oram, no run, 84.5mph, good length and outside off, Oram gets his back foot across and his front foot way out of leg stump, almost as if he's in the final overs of a one-dayer, lets that go but he's not in control here

62.4

Broad to Oram, 1 run, clears the front foot again, base-ball style, this is a short one and he goes for the pull, top-edge flies to the keeper but he's dropped that, tough one for Ambrose and he can only jump up and get a glove to it, the edge wasn't obvious but Darrell Hair gives a run and not a bye, so it must go down as a chance

New Zealand 235/4   JDP Oram 34* (75b 4x4)
63.6

Panesar to Oram, FOUR, Oram loses his cool but it's dropped, tossed up on middle and off, Oram down the ground and tries to loft it over mid-on, he isn't to the pitch of it and one hand comes off the handle as he plays that, Anderson tries to come around but he never judged that, was too far away from it and even the dive doesn't help, trickles away for four, that should have been taken

New Zealand 249/4   JDP Oram 38* (76b 5x4)
