  New Zealand innings (50 overs maximum) R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal JD Ryder c Mascarenhas b Anderson 23 51 39 2 1 58.97
11.1 the sucker punch ... short, Ryder pulls and it goes straight down the throat of the man out in the deep five yards behind square. Mascarenhas hardly has to move and he turns and shows the ball to spectators who have been giving him some verbals 40/3
View dismissal BB McCullum c Cook b Anderson 4 8 6 1 0 66.66
1.5 massive breakthrough and that's good aggression from Anderson. Another short ball, angling in and cramping McCullum as he attempted to cut his way out of trouble. Alastair Cook at slip claims a simple looped chance. England are up and running 7/1
View dismissal JM How c Collingwood b Broad 10 39 20 1 0 50.00
10.4 How looks to drive through extra cover, the ball squirts off a thick edge and scoots to the left of Collingwood at backward point who takes a good, low catch ... it wasn't going hard but it was dying on him 40/2
View dismissal LRPL Taylor lbw b Collingwood 31 84 49 1 1 63.26
29.3 oh dear ... salt in the wound. First the six is discounted and three balls later Taylor misses a straight one and is given lbw. He was a long way forward but it wasn't high. In normal circumstances that would be okay, but given what has already happened this over, it's bound to be a discussion point ... 95/6
View dismissal SB Styris c Mascarenhas b Broad 3 16 11 0 0 27.27
14.5 short, he pulls from outside off and Mascarenhas at shortish midwicket takes a really good catch above his head. It was slightly too short for the pull and that's why he couldn't get on top of it and ended up playing more of a tennis swat 53/4
View dismissal PG Fulton b Collingwood 4 30 25 0 0 16.00
21.6 straight through a large gap between bat and pad - his footwork has been minimal throughout - and the off stump is sent flying 64/5
View dismissal JDP Oram c Bell b Sidebottom 88 118 91 4 4 96.70
48.5 another full toss, Oram thumps that over Bell at wide mid-on, it seems for all the world to be falling beyond him but he turns, runs and dives full length to take a brilliant catch as the ball drops over his shoulder 223/9
View dismissal DL Vettori* c Shah b Collingwood 42 48 35 4 1 120.00
41.3 as he now does every ball, Vettori steps to the leg and gives himself room, but this time he pulls the ball straight to Shah at deep midwicket 169/7
View dismissal KD Mills c Cook b Broad 8 20 12 0 0 66.66
45.5 short, Mills takes the bait and hooks, gets a big top edge and Cook comes in from the deep-midwicket boundary and has to make a late adjustment and dive forward to hold the ball inches above the turf. In this breeze that must have been swirling around and he did well 199/8

View dismissal AN Cook c Martin b Oram 9 32 24 1 0 37.50
7.2 that was pure pressure - nothing more, nothing less. A length ball, smeared in front of square on the leg side, and straight to the solitary fielder at mid-on. England are wobbling 31/2
View dismissal P Mustard run out (Vettori) 15 13 9 2 1 166.66
2.6 from Mills, tapped into the covers, and Vettori pings down the stumps with Mustard nowhere near the frame! That's England's seventh run-out in this series. Their fielders didn't hit the stumps once, now New Zealand have made direct hits twice in two attempts ... 18/1
View dismissal IR Bell lbw b Vettori 73 112 89 10 0 82.02
30.1 faster, flatter arm ball traps Bell back in the crease ...it was hitting, no doubts there, but was there a sniff of an edge? It matters not a jot because he's on his way ... but he's muttering all the way back to the hutch ... 138/3
View dismissal KP Pietersen lbw b Vettori 41 105 65 5 0 63.07
32.6 he misses an intended flick to leg, and Rauf gives another lbw ... he was a long way forward but despite that it looked a sound decision. Not that Pietersen would agree, and he stares long and hard at the hapless official as he heads off 149/4
