England tour of New Zealand, 2007/08 / Commentary

England in New Zealand ODI Series - 2nd ODI

New Zealand v England

New Zealand won by 10 wickets (with 107 balls remaining) (D/L method)

0.6

Mills to Mustard, no run, another cracking ball from Mills, full inswinging yorker which Mustard jabs down it and loses his footing...top start from Mills

England 3/0   P Mustard 0* (1b)

3.1

Martin to Mustard, 1 run, round the wicket, cramps Mustard for room and he turns into the leg side gap between mid-on and square leg

3.6

Martin to Mustard, no run, shovelled towards square leg by Mustard but can't find the gap

England 21/0   P Mustard 1* (3b)

4.4

Mills to Mustard, FOUR, now Mustard joins the party with a lofted drive over the covers, it nearly carries all the way but drops just inside the rope...positive start from England

4.5

Mills to Mustard, 1 run, drifts onto the pads and flicked with excellent timing into the leg side, goes one bounce to Peter Fulton at deep square-leg...Mustard almost hit that too well

England 31/0   P Mustard 6* (5b 1x4)

5.1

Martin to Mustard, 1 run, goes for a heave through the leg side, gets an inside edge into his pads which bobbles towards the slips

5.3

Martin to Mustard, SIX, dragged in short from Martin and Mustard is quickly onto the pull, dispatching it handsomely over deep square-leg and into the lap of a supporter on the grass bank

5.4

Martin to Mustard, OUT, gone! There's the breakthrough for New Zealand as Mustard drives to drive but doesn't commit himself to going over the top. Daniel Vettori plucks out a neat, low catch at mid-off to end a rapid, but brief, opening stand.

P Mustard c Vettori b Martin 13 (23m 8b 1x4 1x6) SR: 162.50

England 41/1   P Mustard 13 (8b 1x4 1x6)
