England tour of New Zealand, 2007/08 / Wicket 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)

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   AN Cook 27* (26b 4x4)   CS Martin 2.4-0-16-1

5.5

Martin to Bell, OUT, well, well, it's all happened here! Two wickets in two balls as Brendon McCullum pulls off a blinding catch...Ian Bell shaped to leave his first ball, but as he withdrew his bat it caught the toe end and flew to the right of McCullum. The keeper flung himself to his right and brings off a blinder in front of first slip and sets off in celebration

IR Bell c †McCullum b Martin 0 (1m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

England 41/2   AN Cook 27* (26b 4x4)   CS Martin 2.5-0-16-2

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

England 90/3   AN Cook 45* (51b 6x4)   MJ Mason 4.3-0-19-1

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

England 91/4   AN Cook 45* (51b 6x4)   MJ Mason 4.4-0-20-1

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

England 97/5   AN Cook 47* (58b 6x4)   MJ Mason 5.4-0-21-2

25.5

Vettori to Bopara, OUT, abysmal running, and Cook is sold hopelessly down the river. A tame push into the covers, an instant and suicidal call, and McCullum doesn't even have to hustle up to the stumps to complete the run-out.

AN Cook run out 53 (114m 69b 6x4 0x6) SR: 76.81

England 121/6   RS Bopara 17* (32b 2x4)   DL Vettori 1.5-0-7-0

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   RS Bopara 20* (37b 2x4)   DL Vettori 2.4-0-8-1

30.5

Mills to Bopara, OUT, full toss, and a sad end to a rather sad innings. It was waist-height and he could have put that anywhere, but instead he found Jesse Ryder lurking at deep midwicket. It's been another difficult day at the office for Bopara

RS Bopara c Ryder b Mills 23 (51m 42b 2x4 0x6) SR: 54.76

England 142/8   SCJ Broad 13* (14b 2x4)   KD Mills 5.5-0-39-1

33.4

Vettori to Broad, OUT, more comedy running, and there's the hat-trick of run-outs. It was almost a lobbed catch to Scott Styris at short third man, but instead it was a simple pot-shot, who hit the stumps from the edge of the ring. Woeful, I'm afraid

RJ Sidebottom run out 2 (11m 5b 0x4 0x6) SR: 40.00

England 151/9   SCJ Broad 20* (26b 2x4 1x6)   DL Vettori 5.4-0-15-1

35.1

Vettori to Broad, OUT, a bit of width, a bigger hoon into the deep, and Mills at extra cover makes good ground to his left to cling onto a fine diving catch

SCJ Broad c Mills b Vettori 23 (33m 31b 2x4 1x6) SR: 74.19

England 158/10   JM Anderson 2* (4b)   DL Vettori 6.1-0-16-2
