  New Zealand innings (50 overs maximum) R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal SP Fleming* c †Nixon b Flintoff 20 52 42 2 1 47.61
11.6 a huge shout and that's gone! Flintoff has struck first over with a 90mph (145kmh) which attacks along an off-stump line and takes a fine edge through to Nixon, Fleming's feet trapped in the crease. Big blow for New Zealand, just as their captain was starting to get going 37/2
View dismissal NJ Astle c Collingwood b Anderson 1 7 8 0 0 12.50
1.5 he's gone this time! Anderson softened him up with the previous delivery and Astle jabs once more at this one which is pitched up, but this time a straightforward edge flies into the hands of Collingwood at second slip who makes no mistake. Good bowling from Anderson, poor shot from Astle 5/1
View dismissal PG Fulton c Collingwood b Lewis 24 75 39 2 1 61.53
18.2 ah, gone this time. Floated just outside off stump, a slower ball, offspinner and the batsman played too early, spooning a simple catch to Collingwood at backward point. Good response from Lewis but New Zealand's sliver of momentum has been punctured again. Much rests on Taylor's shoulders now 55/3
View dismissal LRPL Taylor c Collingwood b Panesar 15 58 44 1 0 34.09
23.4 Panesar strikes! Good take at slip, snapped to his right, with Taylor trying to stroke that through cover, reaching for the ball. Monty's the fourth England bowler to take a wicket in his first over and there's a mire with New Zealand's name on it 67/5
View dismissal CD McMillan lbw b Collingwood 2 12 7 0 0 28.57
20.4 huge shout and plumb, McMillan playing all round one which angles back in ever-so-slightly. That would have taken middle about halfway up the stump. Collingwood strikes in his first over, good decision from Flintoff to bring him on 61/4
View dismissal JDP Oram c Strauss b Anderson 86 112 89 6 2 96.62
47.3 gone this time. The let-off didn't prove costly, Oram snapped up just behind square leg 191/7
View dismissal BB McCullum b Flintoff 30 88 56 0 0 53.57
46.3 bowled him! Cleans up McCullum with one which takes a big inside edge and crashes right onto the stumps. So McCullum made 30, but they weren't comfortable runs by any stretch. Nevertheless he and Oram's stand has been invaluable in turning round this innings 187/6
View dismissal JEC Franklin run out (Collingwood/†Nixon) 14 22 9 0 1 155.55
49.6 from Anderson, another low full toss and that's driven out to long-on. Suicidal stuff from the batsmen, attempting a second that was never on and Nixon whips off the bails 210/10
View dismissal DL Vettori c †Nixon b Flintoff 2 6 5 0 0 40.00
48.4 good catch from Nixon, athletic, and going away to his left to pouch the thick edge. Full length again from Flintoff and the batsman swishes at that one, backing away to give himself room on the off-side 194/8
View dismissal SE Bond b Flintoff 2 2 2 0 0 100.00
48.6 yorker and Flintoff ends his spell perfectly, picking up his fourth wicket with a darting full delivery. That's 4 for 21 for him from his ten overs, top bowling 196/9

View dismissal AJ Strauss lbw b Franklin 19 37 33 3 0 57.57
8.6 right up there, straight and true and there's little doubt that that's out. Full length, Strauss looking to play across the line, and that would have comfortably taken leg stump 30/2
View dismissal MB Loye c Fleming b Franklin 8 26 14 1 0 57.14
6.2 wide half volley angled across the right hander, a rather loose flash and a thick edge is well held at chest height by Fleming at first slip ... Fleming makes a sarcastic appeal to the umpire and who can blame him ... 21/1
View dismissal IR Bell c Fleming b Franklin 2 17 15 0 0 13.33
10.3 gone! It went low and just about carried to Fleming at first slip who does well to snap up a tidy catch. England are in trouble now at 31 for 3 31/3
View dismissal EC Joyce c Gillespie b Vettori 47 106 70 5 0 67.14
34.1 oh what a catch! Gillespie at long-on came hurtling in, realised that Joyce had actually timed it very well and had to backpedal, leaping at full stretch to pluck that two-handed out of the air. Jonty Rhodes would have been proud of that one 107/7
View dismissal PD Collingwood lbw b Vettori 10 58 37 0 0 27.02
24.2 "that's out" cries everyone in the office before the umpire has even got chance to raise his finger. Collingwood on one knee trying to sweep there and that would have gone straight one - great ball 76/4
View dismissal A Flintoff* c †McCullum b Vettori 9 17 17 0 0 52.94
28.6 got him! Flintoff goes! Vettori deserved that wicket, having bowled really beautifully. That was a great delivery, tempting Flintoff into a big whoosh, he takes the faintest of inside edges and McCullum does well to pouch that with two hands 92/5
View dismissal PA Nixon c †McCullum b Oram 6 17 17 0 0 35.29
33.2 inside edge and Nixon goes! Nixon stands there in disbelief, but there was a definite noise as it brushes the inside edge on the way through to McCullum and that's 100 ODI wickets for Oram. Will this be the turning point of the match? 107/6
View dismissal JWM Dalrymple c Fleming b Vettori 0 7 6 0 0 0.00
34.3 oh dear. Head hanging all round for England and jubilation for New Zealand. Wide and steered straight to slip where Fleming takes an easy catch 107/8
View dismissal J Lewis c Fleming b Bond 5 17 8 1 0 62.50
37.5 it's all over! A thick outside edge flies to first slip and that's taken, jugglingly if that's a word, by Fleming who's done very well in the slips tonight, backing up the rest of his fielders. 120/10
View dismissal MS Panesar c Astle b Bond 6 13 12 0 0 50.00
37.4 tries to bang in a bouncer, Panesar bunts that high in the air and that's a very fine catch indeed from Astle, dribbling backwards and taking that right over his head with two hands. Good stuff and now it's Bond's turn to bring up 100 ODI wickets 120/9
