England 2/0   CS Martin 1-1-0-0

Martin to Mustard, no run, elegantly driven...but with absolutely no placement, or indeed power

5.2

Martin to Mustard, no run, a touch of swing into Mustard who comes onto the front foot, driving to mid-off

5.3

Martin to Mustard, no run, defended to point and again it's a dot ball

5.4

Martin to Mustard, no run, full, angling into the left-hander's middle stump and he's right behind it, defending it as though this is a six-day Test match

7.1

Martin to Mustard, no run, oh hello, what's he doing here? Fuller, and it doesn't really get up on Mustard but he tries to pull it and gets an inside edge. McCullum does well to save four

7.2

Martin to Mustard, no run, left alone outside off. A little bit of movement back into the left hander off the seam

7.3

Martin to Mustard, 2 runs, elegantly flicked by Mustard through the midwicket region, and he times it well for two

7.4

Martin to Mustard, 1 run, clumped on the front foot to cover - who misfields! Not his fault; it's the pitch which is entirely to blame, and he's nutmugged to allow them through for a single

7.5

Martin to Cook, 1 run, clunked into the covers. Cook yells "yeh yeh", which Mustard correctly interprets as reason to run

7.6

Martin to Mustard, FOUR, inside edge for four! That was mighty close. Mustard was too late on this fuller delivery which cut back into him, and came tentatively forward, inside-edging it past his off stump

England 27/0   CS Martin 4-1-11-0
9.1

Martin to Mustard, 1 run, on the off stump, dropped out to cover. Well run

Martin to Cook, 1 run, Cook steps to leg and defends - and that's very well run indeed

9.3

Martin to Mustard, 1 leg bye, cautiously defended on the back foot to leg and although he can't time it, they nevertheless scamper through for a single

9.4

Martin to Cook, no run, very slow, and it comes even slower off the pitch. Cook waits and waits for it, cutting to point

9.5

Martin to Cook, OUT, bowled him! Cook stepped to leg a little and it cut back off the seam - also keeping a little low - and crept through the gate

AN Cook b Martin 11 (42m 26b 0x4 0x6) SR: 42.30

England 34/1   CS Martin 5-1-13-1
11.1

Martin to Bell, no run, pushed up to mid-off

11.2

Martin to Bell, no run, short outside off, Bell leans back and plays a pretty nasty Twenty20-type heave aiming to thump the ball over midwicket ... and misses

11.3

Martin to Bell, no run, lovely diving stop by Oram at backward point, one handed and he is agile enough to have a shy at the bowler's end

11.4

Martin to Bell, no run, turned to midwicket with a shout of "wait on" and wait on they both did

11.5

Martin to Bell, FOUR, pulled over midwicket off the front foot, no attempt to keep the ball down and he clears the infielders

11.6

Martin to Bell, no run, two steps down the pitch to meet the delivery, pushed to cover

England 40/1   CS Martin 6-1-17-1

13.3

Martin to Pietersen, no run, full toss driven to mid-off

13.4

Martin to Pietersen, no run, well forward, an angled bat and backward point fields

13.5

Martin to Pietersen, no run, slightly short, Pietersen on his toes to defend

13.6

Martin to Pietersen, 1 run, banged in and Pietersen slightly surprised, jerking his head back and he pulls into the leg side, almost defensively rather than trying to hit the cover off it

England 43/2   CS Martin 7-1-18-2
15.1
