  England 1st innings R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal AJ Strauss c Taylor b Mills 37 122 97 5 0 38.14
29.6 and there's his demise, after leaving them alone he goes chasing another wide one, and I mean pretty wide, only to flash a thick outside-edge off the end of bat that is gobbled up at head height by Taylor at a wide lone slip 84/3
View dismissal AN Cook b Mills 6 20 15 1 0 40.00
5.1 good ball from Mills! Coming over the wicket he gets one to come back in a touch and Cook plays just outside off stump, getting a thick inside edge that rockets back and takes leg stump. 14/1
View dismissal MP Vaughan* b O'Brien 16 32 22 4 0 72.72
12.4 and O'Brien does the job alone! Good ball moves in a fraction, Vaughan tries for a straight drive and loses his off stump comprehensively. Not a great shot - it would have raced to the boundary had he connected - but he missed it by a long way 44/2
View dismissal KP Pietersen c †Hopkins b O'Brien 115 283 223 14 0 51.56
82.2 what did I say? Make em play and that time O'Brien landed it in the corridor outside off stump and got Pietersen playing away from his body, front foot not going anywhere, and the regulation outside-edge is snaffed up by Hopkins, diving to his right 247/6
View dismissal IR Bell lbw b O'Brien 0 4 3 0 0 0.00
30.6 two in two overs, and Bell's struggles continue! O'Brien gets him for a duck, pitching full just outside off stump and moving the ball in to catch him going for a flick across the line, bat late to come down and after New Zealand shout themselves hoarse Bucknor slowly raises the finger, that looked out as Bell missed a straight one 85/4
View dismissal PD Collingwood c Taylor b Mills 0 4 4 0 0 0.00
31.6 oh well held, Taylor! Mills holds back the length ever so slightly, shapes it away and Collingwood gets another duck to his name, pushing away from the body and looking on as Taylor flings himself to his left to pouch a neat catch at slip 86/5
View dismissal TR Ambrose c †Hopkins b O'Brien 67 222 148 9 0 45.27
86.2 edged and taken, ending a fighting innings from Ambrose, cutting a shortish one with no footwork and paying the price, a thin under-edge gladly held by Hopkins 262/7
View dismissal SCJ Broad b Martin 64 177 132 10 0 48.48
125.5 gone, finally Martin gets one to his name as this one squeezes between Broad's drive and takes the top of the stumps. A fine innings from Broad, and England are in a strong position 361/9
View dismissal JM Anderson c †Hopkins b Oram 28 117 85 3 0 32.94
113.6 finally Oram gets the breakthrough! He's been coming around the wicket, pitched it outside off and no real movement, Anderson just pushed forward and a regulation outside edge goes through to Hopkins 338/8
RJ Sidebottom not out 7 45 34 0 0 20.58
View dismissal MS Panesar c McCullum b Vettori 0 3 2 0 0 0.00
126.5 and he has his revenge here, Panesar comes forward and pops a catch to silly point...very muted appeal, but Bucknor quickly raises the finger. Panesar can't believe the decision and it appears to have come straight off the pad 364/10

  New Zealand 1st innings R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal JM How c †Ambrose b Anderson 40 122 79 7 0 50.63
26.2 gone! Anderson has five, his outstanding spell continues, a thin outside carries low through to Ambrose. Was a limp poke by How after all his hard work, Ambrose did well to come forward and gather it 77/5
View dismissal AJ Redmond b Anderson 1 6 7 0 0 14.28
1.3 what a corker from Anderson, on off stump and moves away late, beats Redmond's forward poke and rips out the off stump. Redmond wouldn't have been able to play that if he'd been told it was coming, great start for England and pressure on the New Zealand top order 2/1
View dismissal BB McCullum b Anderson 9 8 9 1 0 100.00
5.4 gone! another beauty from Anderson, turns McCullum inside-out as he tries to play to leg, probably should have tried to defend straighter, but Anderson has the big wicket and the off stump goes flying again. He's on fire 14/2
View dismissal LRPL Taylor c Pietersen b Anderson 21 75 50 3 0 42.00
22.1 gone! Anderson has his third, encourages Taylor to drive hard outside off stump and a thick outside edge flies to Pietersen at a deep-ish point...comfortable catch and an important wicket 62/3
View dismissal DR Flynn lbw b Anderson 0 3 3 0 0 0.00
22.4 gone! that one is plumb, though. Nips back on off stump, Flynn is caught on the crease and Darrell Hair has no problems giving that out. Anderson on a roll again, New Zealand in the mire 62/4
View dismissal GJ Hopkins lbw b Anderson 15 109 61 1 0 24.59
46.3 full, started on leg, swinging slightly towards the off, trapped in the crease playing across the line and Darrell Hair has a simple decision. "Seven for Jimmy. that's a career best... in all cricket!" shouts Gnasher, triumphantly. 123/10
View dismissal JDP Oram c †Ambrose b Anderson 7 26 26 1 0 26.92
32.4 gone! six for Anderson, that's his career-best. Off-cutter outside off stump, Oram pushes limply and gets a thin edge through to Ambrose. New Zealand sink further 93/6
View dismissal DL Vettori* c Strauss b Sidebottom 7 29 24 1 0 29.16
39.3 outside off, Vettori, who has been leaving similar ones so far today, feels for it, gets a thick outside edge and presents a straightforward catch to Andrew Strauss at first slip 108/7
View dismissal KD Mills c Pietersen b Broad 1 27 17 0 0 5.88
45.3 full and wide, Mills shapes to drive, gets a thick edge and Pietersen at backward point takes a really good catch above his head. He made it look routine but the ball was travelling and he had to time his jump. 123/8
View dismissal IE O'Brien b Broad 0 1 2 0 0 0.00
45.5 good length, pitched off, holds it's line and O'Brien's off stump goes walkies as he gets turned all square on 123/9

View dismissal LRPL Taylor lbw b Broad 14 36 23 2 0 60.86
20.6 huge shout as Taylor moves out to look to play across the line, Broad knows he's struck with the swing as he raps him in front of middle and leg 58/3
View dismissal DR Flynn c †Ambrose b Sidebottom 49 153 105 6 0 46.66
57.3 sharp snap from Ambrose, stretching to his left to remove Flynn on 49 - going for his fifty, it was short and wide and he drove hard and took a very large outside edge 169/5
View dismissal GJ Hopkins c †Ambrose b Sidebottom 12 65 55 2 0 21.81
65.5 got him this time! Building on the previous delivery, this one was a fraction straighter which was enough to take the outside edge, Hopkins pressing forward and getting the edge from the shoulder of the bat 197/6
