New Zealand v England

England won by 50 runs

Southee to Bell, 1 run, shuffles across to clip his first ball to leg, and that's the end of a very tidy first over

England 71/2   IR Bell 1* (1b)

7.1

Styris to Bell, no run, good-length ball, nipping back in and defended into the covers

7.2

Styris to Bell, no run, slightly shorter, and bounces a touch. Pushed into the covers

7.3

Styris to Bell, OUT, dabbed into the leg-side, Bell wanted the single but didn't exactly motor for it. Ross Taylor at mid-on hurtled round, picked up well, and pinged down the non-striker's stumps from about ten yards. Billy Bowden calls for the replay, but Bell has already given up the ghost

IR Bell run out 1 (3m 4b 0x4 0x6) SR: 25.00

England 71/3   IR Bell 1 (4b)
