  England innings (50 overs maximum) R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal AN Cook lbw b Vettori 42 106 70 4 0 60.00
25.1 quicker one, pitches on leg, straightens and Cook is caught in his crease. It looked banged to rights and the umpire has no doubts either 105/3
View dismissal P Mustard c How b Mills 2 10 8 0 0 25.00
2.2 oh dear, well, he was never going to hang around. A monstrous heave off a good length, a spiralling leading edge, and Jamie How judges the ball well at cover, as it holds up in the wind and plops from floodlight-height into his safe hands 5/1
View dismissal IR Bell c Flynn b Mills 24 53 34 4 0 70.58
14.1 half volley, he looks to hit over long-off but underclubs and Flynn, a yard or so in from the boundary, takes a good catch in front of his face 57/2
View dismissal KP Pietersen c Ryder b Patel 39 61 55 3 0 70.90
30.2 the sucker punch! One sighter, then the monstrous heave over midwicket. But Patel held that one up a touch, and Jesse Ryder circled in the deep to take a comfortable chance. That's a major blow to England's ambitions 119/4
View dismissal PD Collingwood* st †McCullum b Vettori 14 31 27 0 0 51.85
33.6 a stunning delivery, rips past Collingwood's floundering edge, drags him out of the crease, and McCullum whips off the bails in an instant! Superb delivery, and as the strains of Coronation Street play out across the stadium, the skipper has to depart 128/5
View dismissal OA Shah c †McCullum b Mills 29 57 48 2 0 60.41
46.5 wide and slightly short, Shah slashes, gets a thin edge and McCullum takes a really good catch and doesn't he know it ... he sets off on a whooping celebration and well he might. A catch like that standing up is always hard ... 201/7
View dismissal LJ Wright c Taylor b Mills 47 42 40 2 4 117.50
46.2 a wide full toss which he doesn't get hold of, Taylor ten yards in at long-off waits and takes a routine catch 197/6
AD Mascarenhas not out 29 20 12 1 2 241.66

View dismissal JD Ryder run out (Pietersen) 24 56 32 3 0 75.00
11.2 Collingwood to McCullum, McCullum calls Ryder for a sharp single, he's slow to respond and as he struggles to make his ground his bat jams into the pitch and is torn out of his hand ... he'd have been on his way anyway as Pietersen at cover picked up and threw down the off stump 103/1
View dismissal BB McCullum b Collingwood 77 74 43 5 6 179.06
15.6 the briefest of reprieves for McCullum, he aims to heave the ball over midwicket, misses, and the off stump is pegged back 118/2
View dismissal JM How c †Mustard b Sidebottom 24 46 43 3 0 55.81
21.4 short and outside off, How steps to leg and aims a wild slash, gets a thin top edge and Mustard holds on 147/3
LRPL Taylor not out 41 100 52 7 0 78.84
View dismissal SB Styris c Broad b Anderson 25 48 35 4 0 71.42
32.4 another indifferent delivery, and an even more indifferent shot - wide outside off and wellied to Broad at wide mid-off. A breakthrough. 196/4
View dismissal DR Flynn lbw b Sidebottom 0 4 3 0 0 0.00
33.3 that's utterly plumb, and suddenly there's a bit of excitement about this game. Pitches on off, nips back, and Flynn's front foot is planted. A sad end to his debut innings, but there's a finish in prospect now ... 197/5
View dismissal JDP Oram b Sidebottom 0 1 1 0 0 0.00
33.4 my goodness me, that is an incredible delivery! Perfect line and length, nips back through the gate and detonates the off stump! Sidebottom is going mental, and England are officially back in this now ...! 197/6
