England in New Zealand T20I Series - 1st T20I

New Zealand v England

England won by 32 runs

1.5

Martin to Wright, OUT, jags back from short of a length and Wright cramped as he looks to work into the off side, it takes him on the gloves and McCullum does really well to dive to his right as the ball dies on him

LJ Wright c †McCullum b Martin 1 (6m 3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 33.33

England 12/1   P Mustard 10* (8b 2x4)   CS Martin 0.5-0-1-1

3.1

Martin to Mustard, OUT, short, pulled straight to deep midwicket, the rather large Jesse Ryder did not have to move which is probably just as well. The ball came off the toe-end of the bat which is why it didn't carry the boundary

P Mustard c Ryder b Martin 20 (13m 13b 2x4 1x6) SR: 153.84

England 31/2   KP Pietersen 9* (3b 2x4)   CS Martin 1.1-0-5-2

6.5

Oram to Bell, OUT, corker yorker does for Bell, he was looking to make room to hit to the off and was completely cleaned up

IR Bell b Oram 12 (15m 10b 2x4 0x6) SR: 120.00

England 65/3   KP Pietersen 31* (15b 6x4)   JDP Oram 1.5-0-13-1

9.5

Patel to Pietersen, OUT, he dances down the track and hammers low to midwicket where Ross Taylor dives to his right and holds the ball a foot above the turf

KP Pietersen c Taylor b Patel 43 (36m 23b 6x4 1x6) SR: 186.95

England 85/4   PD Collingwood 8* (10b)   JS Patel 0.5-0-4-1

13.2

Ryder to Shah, OUT, Shah sweeps across the line, misses, it's straight and that's a simple decision for the umpire

OA Shah lbw b Ryder 23 (13m 17b 2x4 1x6) SR: 135.29

England 117/5   PD Collingwood 17* (14b 1x6)   JD Ryder 0.2-0-0-1

16.4

Mills to Mascarenhas, OUT, he steps to leg and cuts the ball to third man where Patel hardly had to move

AD Mascarenhas c Patel b Mills 31 (14m 14b 1x4 4x6) SR: 221.42

England 157/6   PD Collingwood 25* (20b 1x4 1x6)   KD Mills 2.4-0-34-1

17.2

Southee to Collingwood, OUT, rather airy drive, leaning back, to Styris at extra cover ... he takes it above his head, spills it, grabs at it with his right hand, juggles again and finally takes it at the third time of asking

PD Collingwood c Styris b Southee 26 (46m 22b 1x4 1x6) SR: 118.18

England 160/7   GP Swann 2* (2b)   TG Southee 2.2-0-21-1

18.4

Mills to Broad, OUT, slower ball, Broad gets under it, plenty of elevation but no distance. Styris at midwicket watches it like a hawk and makes no mistake

SCJ Broad c Styris b Mills 6 (5m 4b 1x4 0x6) SR: 150.00

England 172/8   GP Swann 8* (6b 1x4)   KD Mills 3.4-0-42-2
