0.1

0.2

Sidebottom to Ryder, no run, slightly fuller and this one draws Ryder into a loose push at the ball without making contact

0.4

Sidebottom to Ryder, no run, full on the stumps, pushed to mid-off

0.5

Sidebottom to Ryder, no run, this one doesn't swing and it's defended back down the pitch, Sidebottom shows plenty of aggression in his follow through

Anderson to McCullum, 1 wide, drifts down the leg side first ball. Phil Mustard lets out a hopeful cry but can't fool anyone, especially the umpire

1.1

Anderson to McCullum, 1 run, dropped a flashing drive from McCullum outside off stump and Mustard can only palm the chance wide of first slip...he went with one glove to his right and couldn't hang on. Could be costly

    • RJ Sidebottom 2-1-4-0

3.2

Anderson to McCullum, FOUR, goes leg side again, advances towards Anderson then swings it hard and flat over square leg...this one bounces over the boundary

3.3

3.4

Anderson to Ryder, no run, hammered firmly into the covers and Ian Bell makes a fine diving save to prevent a boundary

Anderson to Ryder, no run, defended into the off side and that moved man comes into action

Anderson to Ryder, FOUR, pulled flat and hard over square leg and beats the man in the deep who only had to move a few meters to his left...that went like a tracer bullet. Great over for New Zealand

End of over 4 (15 runs) New Zealand 26/0 (140 runs required from 32 overs, RR: 6.50, RRR: 4.37)

    • JD Ryder 8 (14b 2x4)

    • JM Anderson 2-0-21-0
    • RJ Sidebottom 2-1-4-0
4.1

Sidebottom to McCullum, FOUR, they are on the charge as McCullum comes down the track outside leg stump and smashes Sidebottom through the covers...one-way traffic and fielders and running everywhere

4.2

First change of bowling and here comes Stuart Broad

5.1

Broad to Ryder, no run, starts on off stump, it's well timed into the covers but Bell is prowling again

5.3

Broad to Ryder, no run, driven square to backward point

5.4

Broad to Ryder, FOUR, banged in short and Ryder helps himself to four more as he pulls down to long leg...he played that well as it was a decent bouncer above his head

Broad aborts as someone walks in front of the sightscreen

5.5

Broad to Ryder, FOUR, and again, short and helped round the corner again with another pull...poor bowling from Broad who normally has such a smart head

5.6

Broad to Ryder, 1 run, at last he pitches up and Ryder tucks him into the leg side to keep the strike

    • SCJ Broad 1-0-13-0
    • RJ Sidebottom 3-1-12-0
6.1

Sidebottom to Ryder, 2 runs, picks the gap between backward point and cover, doesn't have enough force to reach the boundary but that was nice touch play from Ryder

6.2

Sidebottom to Ryder, no run, good yorker, targeting the stumps and well dug out

6.3

Sidebottom to Ryder, FOUR, hint of width outside off stump allowing Ryder to free his arms and drive the ball imperiously through the covers despite a fielder getting a hand on it

6.4

Sidebottom to Ryder, FOUR, and again, this is carnage from New Zealand as Ryder drives off the front foot this time through the covers...England are clueless, and New Zealand all over them

6.5

Sidebottom to Ryder, FOUR, banged in short and Ryder is going all guns blazing. Latches onto another pull and no one has a hope of catching it

6.6

Sidebottom to Ryder, 1 run, something of a victory for Sidebottom, he keeps Ryder to a single as he pushes towards mid-on but New Zealand are racing away with this game

End of over 7 (15 runs) New Zealand 62/0 (104 runs required from 29 overs, RR: 8.85, RRR: 3.58)

    • JD Ryder 39 (30b 8x4)

7.1

Broad to Ryder, no run, driven down to long-off

7.2

7.3

Broad to McCullum, no run, outside off stump, McCullum comes across the crease and works to the leg side

7.4

Broad to McCullum, 2 runs, whipped from outside off stump through midwicket, sweeper keeps them to twi

    • JD Ryder 40 (32b 8x4)
    • SCJ Broad 2-0-22-0
    • RJ Sidebottom 4-1-27-0

8.1

Anderson to Ryder, no run, round the wicket, tries to pull through midwicket but doesn't connect cleanly

9.1

Broad to McCullum, no run, pushed into midwicket, can't beat the field

9.2

Broad to McCullum, no run, on off stump, pushed into the covers

9.3

Broad to McCullum, SIX, a step down the pitch and whipped effortlessly over deep square leg, goes many miles back and that was an awesome shot

9.5

Broad to McCullum, no run, banged in and rises through to Mustard

9.6

Broad to McCullum, no run, angled out to backward point

And now for more fun it's Andrew Miller. Well thank you Gnasher. What a shambolic performance it's been from England. The field has been spread to the four winds as Anderson comes round the wicket

End of over 10 (10 runs) New Zealand 85/0 (81 runs required from 26 overs, RR: 8.50, RRR: 3.11)

    • BB McCullum 42 (23b 4x4 3x6)
    • JD Ryder 41 (37b 8x4)
    • SCJ Broad 3-0-32-0
    • JM Anderson 3-0-25-0
10.1

Anderson to Ryder, FOUR, width, and glided through the gap at backward point. Threading the needle

10.2

Anderson to Ryder, SIX, that has travelled absolutely miles! Reminiscent of Yuvraj Singh's fifth six against Broad at Durban, underneath the ball with a brutal slog, and that sails over the stand at midwicket

Fifty from 39 balls ...

10.3

Anderson to Ryder, FOUR, width, and flogged past point. This is entertainment!

10.4

Anderson to Ryder, no run, a rare dot ball ... a swish and a miss outside off

10.5

Anderson to Ryder, no run, right up into the blockhole, chiselled out to point

10.6

Anderson to Ryder, FOUR, low full toss, and this smeared pull isn't even middled, but it still flies for four. New Zealand's 100 comes up in just 11 overs!

End of over 11 (18 runs) New Zealand 103/0 (63 runs required from 25 overs, RR: 9.36, RRR: 2.52)

    • JD Ryder 59 (43b 11x4 1x6)
    • BB McCullum 42 (23b 4x4 3x6)
    • JM Anderson 4-0-43-0
    • SCJ Broad 3-0-32-0

Here comes Graeme Swann. What possible solace can he reap for England?

11.1

Swann to McCullum, 1 leg bye, sharp tweak into the pads

11.2

Swann to Ryder, 1 run, floated onto a good length, shovelled to deep midwicket

11.3

Swann to McCullum, no run, good delivery in the circumstances. Defended in front of off stump

11.4

Swann to McCullum, FOUR, too wide, and that's bludgeoned up and over extra cover, one bounce and over the rope

11.5

Swann to McCullum, FOUR, reverse sweep, and Anderson at short fine leg dives straight over the ball!

An apt way for England to gift McCullum his fifty, from 27 deliveries

11.6

Swann to McCullum, FOUR, short, and pulled through square leg. England have utterly surrendered and it is pitiful to behold. Unless, of course, you are one of the raucous home fans at Hamilton

End of over 12 (14 runs) New Zealand 117/0 (49 runs required from 24 overs, RR: 9.75, RRR: 2.04)

    • BB McCullum 54 (28b 7x4 3x6)
    • JD Ryder 60 (44b 11x4 1x6)
    • GP Swann 1-0-13-0
    • JM Anderson 4-0-43-0

The skipper brings himself into the attack. What else can he do?

12.1

Collingwood to Ryder, 2 runs, full length, on leg stump, turned casually into the deep and good running makes two

12.2

Collingwood to Ryder, no run, that's the length. Pushing Ryder back into the crease, on off stump

12.3

Collingwood to Ryder, no run, slower ball, comes out as a bit of a long hop, but enough deception nonetheless

12.4

Collingwood to Ryder, 2 runs, width, and walloped up and over. Plugs in no-man's land in the covers

12.5

Collingwood to Ryder, 1 run, carved down to third man. Wonderful free swinging through the line

Shades of Marcus Trescothick, suggests David Lloyd. I'm inclined to agree

12.6

Collingwood to McCullum, 1 run, keeps the strike with a nudge into the gap. How soon will this be over?

This is the highest opening stand by any side on this ground in ODIs. On a cloudy Monday. In February ...

End of over 13 (6 runs) New Zealand 123/0 (43 runs required from 23 overs, RR: 9.46, RRR: 1.86)

    • BB McCullum 55 (29b 7x4 3x6)
    • JD Ryder 65 (49b 11x4 1x6)
    • PD Collingwood 1-0-6-0
    • GP Swann 1-0-13-0
13.1

Swann to McCullum, no run, cramped for room, can't connect

13.2

Swann to McCullum, SIX, no problems connecting this time. A juicy half-volley, and flannelled over cow corner with utter disdain!

13.3

Swann to McCullum, no run, a rare dot ball

13.4

Swann to McCullum, 1 run, wide outside off stump, drilled down to long-on

13.5

Swann to Ryder, 1 run, slog-swept from outside off stump, cut off in the deep by the leg-side sweeper

13.6

Swann to McCullum, SIX, smashed! Utterly smashed! A free swing of the blade, a full pivot on bended knee, and the sixth six of the innings sails into the stands

End of over 14 (14 runs) New Zealand 137/0 (29 runs required from 22 overs, RR: 9.78, RRR: 1.31)

    • BB McCullum 68 (34b 7x4 5x6)
    • JD Ryder 66 (50b 11x4 1x6)
    • GP Swann 2-0-27-0
    • PD Collingwood 1-0-6-0
14.1

Collingwood to Ryder, SIX, dispatched with murderous disdain! A flat swing over midwicket, a short-arm jab off an attempted slower ball.

And the ball has been lost this time. That's the only thing that has held up New Zealand's victory surge

14.2

Collingwood to Ryder, 1 leg bye, full toss, on the legs. An optimistic appeal, and another run

14.3

Collingwood to McCullum, no run, outside off, pushed square, picked up at point

14.4

Collingwood to McCullum, no run, slower ball, pushed out to cover. Another big hit was being lined up there ...

14.5

Collingwood to McCullum, no run

14.6

Collingwood to McCullum, 1 run, steered round the corner to keep the strike

If this is, as expected and deserved, a ten-wicket defeat, it will be England's fourth in ODI history, and New Zealand's third in 12 months, after similar victories over Australia and Bangladesh.

End of over 15 (8 runs) New Zealand 145/0 (21 runs required from 21 overs, RR: 9.66, RRR: 1.00)

    • BB McCullum 69 (38b 7x4 5x6)
    • JD Ryder 72 (52b 11x4 2x6)
    • PD Collingwood 2-0-13-0
    • GP Swann 2-0-27-0
15.1

Sidebottom to McCullum, 1 leg bye, on the pads, wafted away

15.2

Sidebottom to Ryder, no run, dropped! Oh good grief. A slower ball, came out as a long-hop, spooned straight back to the bowler, who shells a sitter in his followthrough. Sums it up really

15.3

Sidebottom to Ryder, 1 run, in the air again, but chipped safely over the leg-side infield

15.4

Sidebottom to McCullum, 1 run, a better pull, along the ground out to square leg

15.5

Sidebottom to Ryder, 2 runs, flogged on one knee, out to deep cover, Cook running in can't get his hands to the opportunity. Not a chance.

"Not a chance" sums up England

15.6

Sidebottom to Ryder, no run, a swing and a miss. Ryder's in a hurry now

End of over 16 (5 runs) New Zealand 150/0 (16 runs required from 20 overs, RR: 9.37, RRR: 0.80)

    • JD Ryder 75 (56b 11x4 2x6)
    • BB McCullum 70 (40b 7x4 5x6)
    • RJ Sidebottom 5-1-31-0
    • PD Collingwood 2-0-13-0
16.1

16.2

Collingwood to McCullum, 1 run, cut, in the air, out to deep cover

16.3

Collingwood to Ryder, no run, outside off stump, a swish and a miss, Mustard takes

16.4

Collingwood to Ryder, no run, bouncer, and a good take standing up to the stumps

16.5

Collingwood to Ryder, 1 run, slower ball again, patted into space on the off side

16.6

Collingwood to McCullum, 2 runs, tight to off stump, but cut firmly - so firmly in fact that point can't gather cleanly. The ball ricochets away for two

This is now New Zealand's highest opening stand against England

End of over 17 (4 runs) New Zealand 154/0 (12 runs required from 19 overs, RR: 9.05, RRR: 0.63)

    • BB McCullum 73 (43b 7x4 5x6)
    • JD Ryder 76 (59b 11x4 2x6)
    • PD Collingwood 3-0-17-0
    • RJ Sidebottom 5-1-31-0
17.1

Sidebottom to Ryder, 1 run, square-driven to point

17.2

Sidebottom to McCullum, 1 run, slashed down to third man, with an open face. Fielded on the first bounce

17.3

Sidebottom to Ryder, 1 run, good line and length, but calmly deflected down to third man. Single figures now needed

17.4

Sidebottom to McCullum, 1 wide, short, wide and ugly. Down the leg side

17.4

Sidebottom to McCullum, 1 run, nudged to gully, an instant call and Ryder was a sitting duck had the shy come in. But Collingwood missed by a mile, appropriately enough

17.5

Sidebottom to Ryder, 1 run, long-hop, pulled firmly and just short of midwicket. New Zealand living dangerously now. As well they might. It would be a shame if these two didn't see them home though

17.6

Sidebottom to McCullum, 1 run, clipped down to third man, and now one boundary would do the trick

End of over 18 (7 runs) New Zealand 161/0 (5 runs required from 18 overs, RR: 8.94, RRR: 0.27)

    • BB McCullum 76 (46b 7x4 5x6)
    • JD Ryder 79 (62b 11x4 2x6)
    • RJ Sidebottom 6-1-38-0
    • PD Collingwood 3-0-17-0
18.1

Collingwood to McCullum, FOUR, outside off, a step back and across, and a cool slap through the covers wraps up one of England's most humiliating defeats of all time

Well, what can you say about that? A desperate performance with bat and ball from England, and a clinical, professional response from the Kiwis. Jesse Ryder makes off with a souvenir stump, as well he might, as New Zealand move 2-0 ahead with three matches to come in the series

So, trouble at t'mill for England. They entered this series with high hopes, but their ambitions are now in tatters. For New Zealand, however, spirits have rarely been higher. Extraordinary, really, when you consider the chaos they were in last week. Hope you've enjoyed this massacre, especially if you're a Kiwi. We've been Andrews Miller and McGlashan, join us again on Friday for the potentially decisive third match of the series.
