12.1

Swann to Franklin, no run, round the wicket, on middle, hint of turn and driven to cover

12.2

Swann to Franklin, no run, starts wider outside off and comes in with the arm, pushed into the off side

12.3

Swann to Franklin, 1 run, little quicker this time, no width on offer for Franklin, it's dabbed into the covers for a sharp single

12.6

Swann to Franklin, 1 run, nudged from off stump into the leg side

New Zealand 75/4   JEC Franklin 3* (5b)
13.1

Bresnan to Franklin, 2 runs, short of a length, Franklin opens the face to guide it backward point and that's nicely placed wide of third man

13.2

Bresnan to Franklin, no run, bouncer over leg stump, loops off the surface and the batsman wanted a wide but the umpire lets it go

13.3

Bresnan to Franklin, 1 run, uses his feet to a full ball around off stump and drills it firmly towards mid-off who is inside the cricle

13.5

Bresnan to Franklin, 1 run, touch short outside off, a slower ball, Franklin cracks it out to deep cover

New Zealand 80/4   JEC Franklin 7* (9b)
14.1

Briggs to Franklin, no run, round the wicket, on leg stump, worked straight to midwicket

14.2

Briggs to Franklin, SIX, releases some of the pressure, played the percentages as he picked this up over midwicket...was a good, clean, swing of the bat

14.3

Briggs to Franklin, 2 runs, flatter on the leg stump, flicked firmly into the deep and Buttler can't stop the second

14.4

Briggs to Franklin, 2 runs, goes much fuller, right at Franklin's toes, and he works it square through the leg side and Buttler, again, can't stop the second

14.5

Briggs to Franklin, FOUR, tough chance, perhaps that's harsh because Franklin comes down the pitch and crunches this back in Briggs' direction and it was more self preservation than an attempt to catch it as it whistles to the boundary

14.6

Briggs to Franklin, 2 runs, and that's another brace to end the over as he works through the leg side...much better over for New Zealand and very smartly played by Franklin

New Zealand 96/4   JEC Franklin 23* (15b 1x4 1x6)
15.2

Broad to Franklin, no run, a slower short ball deceives Franklin as he gives himself room and the ball loops over the top edge

15.3

Broad to Franklin, FOUR, that's a lovely shot, short of a length again and deflects it down to third man...Finn makes a good effort to stop the boundary, gets a hand to it, but can't flick it back

15.4

Broad to Franklin, no run, beaten again by a short ball as he tries to hoick it through the leg side...hmm, might have been a wide

15.5

Broad to Franklin, FOUR, big full toss, poor delivery, and it gets dispatched as he swings it backward of square and beats long leg

15.6

Broad to Franklin, 1 run, full and wide outside off, certainly better than leg side, and it's driven out to deep cover

New Zealand 106/4   JEC Franklin 32* (20b 3x4 1x6)
16.1

Finn to Franklin, 1 run, full outside leg stump, Franklin backs away and clubs down to long on

16.3

Finn to Franklin, 1 run, full outside off, a slightly slower ball, and it's dabbed towards point

16.5

Finn to Franklin, 1 leg bye, back of a length, takes Franklin's leg and lobs to the off side so a four effectively becomes a leg bye

New Zealand 110/5   JEC Franklin 34* (23b 3x4 1x6)
17.1

Bresnan to Franklin, 1 run, short on leg stump, pulled away to long leg

17.3

Bresnan to Franklin, 1 run, excellent delivery, pinpoint yorker on leg stump, Franklin tried to give himself room but can only push it down the ground

17.5

Bresnan to Franklin, SIX, he's connected with that, another short ball on leg stump and Franklin hooks it with a little bit of top edge and it flies into the crowd

17.6

Bresnan to Franklin, FOUR, now he paddles, or scoops, him straight over the wicketkeeper. It was a low full toss and he got right underneath it. Excellent batting

New Zealand 124/5   JEC Franklin 46* (27b 4x4 2x6)
18.2

Broad to Franklin, 1 leg bye, well done by Broad, he followed the batsman as he moved outside leg and it struck the pads

18.4

Broad to Franklin, 1 bye, swing and a misses outside off so it doesn't prove too costly for England

New Zealand 135/5   JEC Franklin 46* (29b 4x4 2x6)
19.1

Bresnan to Franklin, 2 runs, full at middle and leg, flicked through midwicket and despite a flat throw by Bairstow from the deep Franklin makes it with a dive

19.2

Bresnan to Franklin, 1 run, another good yorker, dug out square through the off side

19.4

Bresnan to Franklin, no run, misses his swing to leg and Franklin can't believe that isn't a wide. Think he has a point.

19.5

Bresnan to Franklin, 1 run, OUT, low full toss, paddled into the leg side to bring up a superb half century off 33 balls and he's run out coming back for a second. Didn't bring out the dive this time.

JEC Franklin run out 50 (48m 33b 4x4 2x6) SR: 151.51

New Zealand 146/6   JEC Franklin 50 (33b 4x4 2x6)
