England tour of New Zealand, 3rd ODI: New Zealand v England at Auckland, Feb 15, 2008
England won by 6 wickets (with 18 balls remaining) (D/L method)
15 February 2008 - day/night match (50-over match)
0.5

Sidebottom to McCullum, no run, full length, outside off stump, fizzes through to the keeper

0.6

Sidebottom to McCullum, FOUR, streaky, but safe in the end. McCullum comes forward in a checked drive that loops over the bowler's head and all the way to the fence. A fraction early on the stroke, but well timed all the same

New Zealand 6/0   BB McCullum 4* (2b 1x4)
1.2

Anderson to McCullum, no run, perfect line and length, and from 16000 miles away I swear there was a nick. But closer to the action, no-one is moved, and a dot-ball ensues

1.3

Anderson to McCullum, no run, outside off, back of a length, defended into the covers

1.4

Anderson to McCullum, no run, banged in, good short ball and the perfect response as McCullum hurtles down the track in premeditated fashion.

1.5

Anderson to McCullum, OUT, massive breakthrough and that's good aggression from Anderson. Another short ball, angling in and cramping McCullum as he attempted to cut his way out of trouble. Alastair Cook at slip claims a simple looped chance. England are up and running

BB McCullum c Cook b Anderson 4 (8m 6b 1x4 0x6) SR: 66.66

New Zealand 7/1   BB McCullum 4 (6b 1x4)
