England tour of New Zealand, 2nd T20I: New Zealand v England at Hamilton, Feb 12, 2013
New Zealand won by 55 runs
12 February 2013 - night match (20-over match)

Wright to Rutherford, OUT, and then gone, just a tickle through to the keeper! Wright has made the breakthrough, Rutherford trying something a little more delicate, maybe a slightly slower ball that just gripped a little and the attempted glide to third man ended up as a gimme to Buttler

HD Rutherford c †Buttler b Wright 40 (31m 27b 1x4 3x6) SR: 148.14

New Zealand 75/1   MJ Guptill 35* (23b 4x4 1x6)   LJ Wright 1.2-0-12-1

Tredwell to Guptill, OUT, scooped out towards deep backward square and Guptill perishes! Tredwell gave it some air, maintained his accuracy and Guptill went down on one knee, only to pick out the fielder on the rope three runs short of a fifty

MJ Guptill c Hales b Tredwell 47 (45m 31b 4x4 2x6) SR: 151.61

New Zealand 105/2   BB McCullum 17* (13b 2x6)   JC Tredwell 1.5-0-20-1

Wright to Taylor, OUT, scooped high out towards the deep midwicket rope but that won't get there, even with the short boundary, Bairstow takes the catch! Wright has his second wicket, it was a length ball on the stumps, an ugly smear across the line by Taylor, who's still searching for form after his NZ return

LRPL Taylor c Bairstow b Wright 4 (11m 6b 0x4 0x6) SR: 66.66

New Zealand 124/3   BB McCullum 32* (21b 3x4 2x6)   LJ Wright 3.1-0-18-2

Dernbach to Munro, OUT, this time he goes, slogging a slower ball to YJB at deep midwicket again! Dernbach took the pace off and Munro was slightly through the shot, trying to muller the ball over the ropes but picking out the man

C Munro c Bairstow b Dernbach 7 (8m 8b 1x4 0x6) SR: 87.50

New Zealand 139/4   BB McCullum 38* (24b 4x4 2x6)   JW Dernbach 2-0-15-1

Dernbach to Elliott, OUT, bowled him, a slowy just nudges the off bail! Even Dernbach was duped by that one, turning away in disappointment as Elliott pushed forward and was beaten ... but the magic had worked and that's another wicket, and another important dot ball

GD Elliott b Dernbach 4 (11m 6b 0x4 0x6) SR: 66.66

New Zealand 154/5   BB McCullum 48* (30b 5x4 2x6)   JW Dernbach 3-0-23-2

Dernbach to BB McCullum, OUT, short of a good length and outside off, swatted high into the off side... and taken! McCullum goes but not before stamping his mark on the match, dying by the sword that has taken a good few chunks out of England today

BB McCullum c Lumb b Dernbach 74 (56m 38b 6x4 5x6) SR: 194.73

New Zealand 188/6   JEC Franklin 2* (3b)   JW Dernbach 3.5-0-34-3
