England tour of New Zealand, 2007/08 / Commentary

New Zealand v England

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

25.6

Vettori to Swann, no run, outside off stump, cut away

England 121/6   GP Swann 0* (1b)

26.6

Styris to Swann, 1 run, nurdled out to point, and that's another trouble-free over that slides by for New Zealand. When they aren't making breakthroughs, they aren't given runs away either

England 125/6   GP Swann 1* (2b)

27.1

Vettori to Swann, no run, swatted down the ground, but doesn't quite carry to mid-off

27.2

Vettori to Swann, 1 wide, attempted clip off the toes, but no contact

27.2

Vettori to Swann, no run, exaggerated, smothering, forward defence

27.3

Vettori to Swann, no run, massive appeal, but that sounded like bat and pad together. Fairly adjacent though

27.4

Vettori to Swann, OUT, quicker, wider, and a slashing cut flies straight to McCullum! There goes another

GP Swann c †McCullum b Vettori 1 (7m 6b 0x4 0x6) SR: 16.66

England 126/7   GP Swann 1 (6b)
