England in New Zealand ODI Series - 1st ODI

New Zealand v England

New Zealand won by 6 wickets (with 120 balls remaining)

18.2

Oram to Collingwood, 1 run, a thick edge as he plays off the back foot, quite safe and third man fields

18.6

Oram to Collingwood, no run, pushed into the on side and cover fields on the bounce

England 57/3   PD Collingwood 1* (2b)

19.5

Styris to Collingwood, 2 runs, drifting to leg, Collingwood turns it round the corner fine enough to allow him to come back for the second

19.6

Styris to Collingwood, no run, driven gently to cover

England 60/3   PD Collingwood 3* (4b)

20.5

Oram to Collingwood, no run, defensive poke into the off side

20.6

Oram to Collingwood, FOUR, top edge as he cuts and it neatly bisects keeper and second slip ... a big gap and his luck was in

England 65/3   PD Collingwood 7* (6b 1x4)

21.2

Styris to Collingwood, 1 run, clipped inches short of Ross Taylor at midwicket, off the bottom of the bat and Taylor's dive almost results in a sensational one-handed catch

England 67/3   PD Collingwood 8* (7b 1x4)

22.1

Oram to Collingwood, no run, edgy drive squeezes to point

22.2

Oram to Collingwood, no run, pushed gently to midwicket

22.3

Oram to Collingwood, no run, back and patted to extra cover

22.4

Oram to Collingwood, no run, a period of consolidation ... defended on merit

22.5

Oram to Collingwood, 1 run, short and pulled to midwicket, he had to wait for that as it was slower of this surface than he expected

England 68/4   PD Collingwood 9* (12b 1x4)

23.1

Styris to Collingwood, no run, pushed off the front foot to cover

23.2

Styris to Collingwood, 1 run, placed drive to mid-on

England 69/4   PD Collingwood 10* (14b 1x4)

24.1

Vettori to Collingwood, 1 run, more air than perhaps expected, driven to deepish mid-on

24.3

Vettori to Collingwood, 1 run, too full, clipped off his toes square on the leg side

England 72/4   PD Collingwood 12* (16b 1x4)

25.5

Styris to Collingwood, no run, driven to mid-off

25.6

Styris to Collingwood, OUT, punched to mid-on and Collingwood ambles through for a single but Shah's not moving at all - trouble here! Collingwood scampers back, dives, and although the throw is wide, McCullum whips off the bails and he's short. Amazingly, none of New Zealand's fielders are interested, and are over the moon that the third umpire has given him out

PD Collingwood run out 12 (30m 18b 1x4 0x6) SR: 66.66

England 80/5   PD Collingwood 12 (18b 1x4)
