8.1

Mason to Cook, 1 run, round the wicket, nudged wide of mid-on to bring up England's fifty...the rate is good but they have lost two important wickets

8.2

Mason to Pietersen, no run, good length on off stump, defended back to Mason in his follow through

8.3

Mason to Pietersen, no run, punchy drive from Pietersen, positive intent but picks out mid-off

8.4

Mason to Pietersen, no run, slower ball outside off stump, Pietersen leaves it and McCullum takes on the second bounce

8.5

Mason to Pietersen, 1 run, a drive skews of a thick inside edge through the leg side, deep square-leg comes round and keeps them to a single

8.6

Mason to Cook, no run, defended back to Mason to end his first over

England 51/2   MJ Mason 1-0-2-0
10.1

Mason to Cook, no run, driven firmly to mid-off and Mason slips in his follow through

10.2

Mason to Cook, 1 run, turned from off stump just to the left of mid-on

10.3

Mason to Pietersen, FOUR, perfect straight drive from Pietersen, too full and the shot gave mid-on no chance even though he got a finger on it

10.4

Mason to Pietersen, no run, tightens up and Pietersen defends

10.5

Mason to Pietersen, no run, short outside off stump, Pietersen goes for the pull but doesn't make contact...he is clearly trying to make the most of the fielding restrictions

10.6

Mason to Pietersen, 1 run, slower ball on the stumps, waited for by Pietersen and turned past short fine-leg to keep the strike

England 73/2   MJ Mason 2-0-8-0
12.1

Mason to Cook, no run, half volley outside off but Cook picks out Ross Taylor at cover

12.2

Mason to Cook, no run, turned down to mid-on, a moment of confusion as Cook wants a run but Pietersen doesn't and Cook scampers back

12.3

Mason to Cook, 1 run, slower ball outside off, waited for by Cook and angled down to third man

12.4

Mason to Pietersen, no run, another slow ball on off stump, Pietersen spots it and dabs into the covers

12.5

Mason to Pietersen, no run, outside off and left alone, Mason has settled into a decent spell

12.6

Mason to Pietersen, 1 run, turned through square leg for a comfortable single

England 77/2   MJ Mason 3-0-10-0
14.1

Mason to Cook, no run, driven to mid-off as Mason continues round the wicket

14.2

Mason to Cook, FOUR, a touch short from Mason and Cook latches on with a screaming pull shot but is close to picking out Scott Styris at midwicket...was going like a tracer and would have taken some catching

14.3

Mason to Cook, no run, slower ball pushed into the covers

14.4

Mason to Cook, no run, another very slow ball, 64mph, and turned to midwicket

England 85/2   MJ Mason 4-0-14-0
16.1

Mason to Cook, FOUR, round the wicket, and edged fine, a genuine nick but no second slip to cut that off

16.2

Mason to Cook, 1 run, big appeal, that was going down, and there was an inside-edge as well. Tight lines though

16.3

Mason to Pietersen, OUT, gone! Full and straight, and that's stone-dead as Pietersen shuffles across his crease in that now-habitual manner. Boos around the ground as England's finest falls without addition, and now his side are in some bother

KP Pietersen lbw b Mason 29 (47m 39b 4x4 1x6) SR: 74.35

16.4

Mason to Collingwood, 1 run, OUT, oh dear, that's just village from England! Collingwood squirts an edgy single through backward point, but ridiculously, he decides to turn it into a tight two, even though he had to jink round the bowler in his followthrough. Oram's throw is fast and flat, and Asad Rauf doesn't even call for the replay!

PD Collingwood run out 1 (1m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

16.5

Mason to Shah, no run, banged in short, a bit of zip in the wicket after the rain. Shah swings into a pull, but doesn't come close to contact

16.6

Mason to Shah, no run, onto the back foot, and drilled firmly into the covers

England 91/4   MJ Mason 5-0-20-1
18.1

Mason to Cook, 1 run, angled into the pads, clipped out to midwicket

18.2

Mason to Shah, no run, slower ball, and finds a bit of inswing as well. A stifled appeal as a result, but that was going down

18.3

Mason to Shah, no run, pushed into the covers, and fielded with a slide. New Zealand have been utterly alert

18.4

Mason to Shah, OUT, what a delivery! A fantastic offcutter, quicker pace and bit of nip off the seam, through a yawning gate and into the top of off stump. Three wickets in 14 balls, and England are collapsing in a hurry now

OA Shah b Mason 0 (8m 5b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

18.5

Mason to Bopara, no run, drawn forward into a smothering defence. Bat on ball first-up for Bopara

18.6

Mason to Bopara, 1 wide, a wasted delivery, seaming away down leg

18.6

Mason to Bopara, 1 run, tapped into the leg-side, a hint of hesitation, but safely through to get off the mark

England 99/5   MJ Mason 6-0-23-2
20.1

Mason to Bopara, no run, short ball, tucked off the hips to a loud bellow of "no!" Just as well, as Shah was hurtling for a single

20.2

Mason to Bopara, no run, defended watchfully, on the move as the ball tails in late

20.3

Mason to Bopara, FOUR, driven airborne, but square - he was aiming straighter, but hit the gap in front of point. Not entirely convincing but England will take it

20.4

Mason to Bopara, no run, defended into the covers

20.5

Mason to Bopara, 1 run, tucked off the toes, picked up at square leg

20.6

Mason to Cook, 1 run, width outside off, flailed into the covers, but cut off in the deep. Cook at least is looking composed. England need him to go big now, as the final 15 overs get underway

England 106/5   MJ Mason 7-0-29-2
