England tour of New Zealand, 2nd T20I: New Zealand v England at Christchurch, Feb 7, 2008
England won by 50 runs
7 February 2008 - night match (20-over match)
4.1

Hitchcock to Mustard, SIX, Full length, into the slot, deposited over long-on. That was travelling

4.2

Hitchcock to Mustard, 1 run, gives himself room, but shouldn't have bothered. Hitchcock holds it back and Mustard's wild swing isn't properly timed

4.3

Hitchcock to Wright, FOUR, The covers are taking a pummelling now, as Wright's confidence begins to soar. Down the track again, and that one whistles low but airborne into the gap

4.4

Hitchcock to Wright, SIX, slower ball again, Wright climbs into it, perhaps gets a touch underneath it, but that clears the short boundary by eight metres!

4.5

Hitchcock to Wright, 1 run, drilled into the covers again. Trouble at 't'mill for New Zealand

4.6

Hitchcock to Mustard, FOUR, pinged down the ground, and a lame attempt at an interception from mid-off. He gets half a hand on it, but that's not enough

England 57/0   PA Hitchcock 1-0-22-0
13.1

Hitchcock to Shah, no run, back of a length and Shah defends

13.2

Hitchcock to Shah, 1 run, pushed to extra cover for a strolled single

13.3

Hitchcock to Collingwood, no run, outside off and Collingwood pulls out of the shot as it gets a bit big on him

13.4

Hitchcock to Collingwood, 1 run, driven from wide of off stump to long-off

13.5

Hitchcock to Shah, FOUR, kiss of death there ... full and no more than placed through the covers, no power but all about where he aimed it

13.6

Hitchcock to Shah, no run, slower ball completely deceives Shah who is left swinging at air

England 120/4   PA Hitchcock 2-0-28-0
18.1

Hitchcock to Shah, 1 run, wide, Shah steps back and thumps that to deep cover

18.2

Hitchcock to Collingwood, 1 run, full toss swung to deep midwicket ... that's almost a stock shot in Twenty20

18.3

Hitchcock to Shah, 1 wide, full but very wide

18.3

Hitchcock to Shah, SIX, well caught by Fulton at deep midwicket but he can't stay inside the rope

18.4

Hitchcock to Shah, OUT, and it's a one-ball reprieve as Shah smacks the ball to Taylor at long-off ... he was right back on the boundary and had to check where his feet where after he had caught it

OA Shah c Taylor b Hitchcock 47 (36m 35b 4x4 2x6) SR: 134.28

18.5

Hitchcock to Collingwood, OUT, and he obliges ... short, he shapes to hit over long-on but seriously underclubs and the catch is taken ten yards inside the boundary

PD Collingwood c How b Hitchcock 54 (43m 28b 5x4 3x6) SR: 192.85

18.6

Hitchcock to Mascarenhas, SIX, short, Mascarenhas steps back and uppercut-slap-slashes the ball into the crowd beyond backward point

England 184/6   PA Hitchcock 3-0-43-2
