ICC Champions Trophy - 11th match, Group A
England won by 10 runs
16 June 2013 (50-over match)

McClenaghan to Bell, OUT, length ball on off stump, Bell steps away and slaps hard to short extra cover who holds on to a blinding catch with two hands at his right shoulder, a very sharp take, that was hammered by Bell off the meat of the bat but he got it straight at Brendon McCullum who's clung on very well indeed there

IR Bell c BB McCullum b McClenaghan 10 (10m 8b 1x4 0x6) SR: 125.00

England 16/1   AN Cook 5* (5b 1x4)   MJ McClenaghan 1.1-0-7-1

Mills to Trott, OUT, full on the stumps, clipped straight to short midwicket and this time it's Nathan McCullum that's held the chance, this one far simpler than his sibling, taken with two hands around stomach height. It was in the slot for Trott to clip away thorough the on-side but he got across his stumps a little too much and couldn't keep the stroke down

IJL Trott c NL McCullum b Mills 8 (7m 6b 1x4 0x6) SR: 133.33

England 25/2   AN Cook 6* (6b 1x4)   KD Mills 1.2-0-10-1

McClenaghan to Root, OUT, step to leg, goes to swing over the leg side, he's late on the stroke and pulls straight up in the air and Ronchi takes an easy catch running out a little way towards square leg, Root got into an awkward position trying to pull a ball that was onto him a little quicker than he might have thought, may have bounced a little more too and put it straight up

JE Root c †Ronchi b McClenaghan 38 (47m 40b 2x4 1x6) SR: 95.00

England 100/3   AN Cook 42* (32b 3x4 1x6)   MJ McClenaghan 2.2-0-16-2

NL McCullum to Cook, OUT, down the wicket, Cook slaps it back to the bowler and this time McNath holds on, waits for the chance to give himself a wicket and finally, at the fourth time of asking, holds the catch at waist height, Cook didn't get to the pitch of the ball and slapped it back in the air and McCullum finally held a chance, top knock from Cook

AN Cook c & b NL McCullum 64 (82m 47b 4x4 2x6) SR: 136.17

England 141/4   EJG Morgan 15* (11b 1x6)   NL McCullum 3.4-0-29-1

Vettori to Morgan, OUT, swept hard and misses, this time it's fuller and given out lbw that looked pretty adjacent and the finger went up pretty quickly. Quicker ball from Vettori and Morgan missed it, not in the best of form this season is Morgan, struggled to time much today and perishes swinging and missing

EJG Morgan lbw b Vettori 15 (23m 15b 0x4 1x6) SR: 100.00

England 143/5   JC Buttler 2* (2b)   DL Vettori 4.4-0-27-1

Mills to Buttler, OUT, length ball, slower, 69mph, slapped to long off, McNath again! And he holds on just inside the boundary, Buttler got it low on the bat and it was so badly mistimed, presented a simple chance for the fielder, tried to clear the front leg but just didn't get it at all right

JC Buttler c NL McCullum b Mills 14 (17m 9b 2x4 0x6) SR: 155.55

England 159/6   RS Bopara 3* (5b)   KD Mills 3.3-0-25-2

McClenaghan to Bopara, OUT, slugged straight up in the air and taken at square leg. It was a decent bumper, too quickly onto Bopara's hook, it went up and Williamson held the chance comfortably at square leg, really good bowling this from McClenaghan, banged it in and Bopara got it high on the bat to present another easy chance to the outfielders

RS Bopara c Williamson b McClenaghan 9 (20m 11b 1x4 0x6) SR: 81.81

England 166/7   TT Bresnan 1* (1b)   MJ McClenaghan 4.4-0-33-3

McClenaghan to Bresnan, 1 run, OUT, paddled down to long leg, there's a fumble from Franklin so they come back for the second and Franklin then hits direct from long leg as Bresnan, diving back, is well short of his ground

TT Bresnan run out 4 (11m 3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 133.33

England 169/8   SCJ Broad 0* (0b)   MJ McClenaghan 5-0-36-3

Mills to Broad, OUT, another high fly ball and who else, Nathan McCullum taking the catch! It was a short ball, Broad was late on the hook, tried to slap it down the ground but put it straight up and another simple chance falls into the ring and McNath is the man today, three drops but four catches so now into the positive

SCJ Broad c NL McCullum b Mills 0 (6m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

England 169/9   JC Tredwell 0* (0b)   KD Mills 4.2-0-30-3

Mills to Tredwell, OUT, back of a length just outside off, guided down to third man and the fielder gets in quickly and takes a sliding catch a very smart grab that and England are all out. Tredwell just tried to use the pace and steer it down fine, made a good connection but these short boundaries mean third man is quite close and was able to rush in and take that catch

JC Tredwell c McClenaghan b Mills 0 (6m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

England 169/10   JM Anderson 0* (0b)   KD Mills 4.3-0-30-4
