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

11.2

Mason to Wright, OUT, the first breakthrough, it just seemed a matter of time until something had to give. Tries to loft it over mid-off, but he doesn't time and just lobs a simple to Vettori on the edge of the circle. Some good pressure from the New Zealand bowlers, but Wright never got going today

LJ Wright c Vettori b Mason 11 (44m 33b 1x4 0x6) SR: 33.33

England 49/1   IR Bell 34* (37b 4x4 1x6)   MJ Mason 1.2-0-9-1

19.6

Mason to Bell, OUT, comes down and there's an appeal for lbw, he's not out there but scrambles to the other end and Taylor's throw comes in direct from short midwicket and Bell's out by a good 30 centimetres, a moment's hesitation costing him

IR Bell run out 46 (83m 58b 5x4 1x6) SR: 79.31

England 84/2   KP Pietersen 21* (31b 2x4)   MJ Mason 6-0-29-1

23.3

Styris to Bopara, OUT, picked him up! Bopara comes out and drives hard back at Styris who snaps a sharp chance, a nothing shot from the batsman really and he will be kicking himself now

RS Bopara c & b Styris 4 (11m 13b 0x4 0x6) SR: 30.76

England 95/3   KP Pietersen 28* (39b 3x4)   SB Styris 1.3-0-4-1

43.5

Vettori to Collingwood, OUT, gone this time, Collingwood goes for a cut and chops into off stump. End of a fine innings and a vital wicket for New Zealand as they try to limit the late carnage

PD Collingwood b Vettori 64 (76m 64b 4x4 2x6) SR: 100.00

England 231/4   KP Pietersen 94* (97b 7x4 3x6)   DL Vettori 9.5-0-38-1

49.5

Southee to Shah, OUT, trying to clear the deep square-leg boundary this time, a slower ball on a length, it was there to hit but he just got a bit too much top edge and found the fielder

OA Shah c How b Southee 49 (28m 25b 4x4 3x6) SR: 196.00

England 304/5   KP Pietersen 109* (111b 8x4 3x6)   TG Southee 9.5-1-65-1
