England tour of New Zealand, 2007/08 / Commentary

45.6

Vettori to Wright, no run, edgily turned to short fine leg, Collingwood yells "no" as he starts as if looking for a sharp single

England 292/5   LJ Wright 0* (1b)

46.3

Mills to Wright, SIX, slow half volley thumped down the ground ... "that's out" calls our BBB man ... and sure enough it carries ten yards over long-on

46.4

Mills to Wright, 1 run, full toss hammered to deep midwicket

46.6

Mills to Wright, 2 runs, full toss heaved to wide long-on, not timed but still he is able to come back for an easy second as it was between men out in the deep

England 303/5   LJ Wright 9* (4b 1x6)

47.3

Martin to Wright, 1 run, driven square off one knee, hard to Ross Taylor who is out sweeping

47.6

Martin to Wright, FOUR, he gives himself room and squirts the ball square on the off side, it goes like a bullet

England 322/5   LJ Wright 14* (6b 1x4 1x6)

48.2

Mills to Wright, 1 run, slightly reaches for a drive, extra cover fields

48.4

Mills to Wright, FOUR, high full toss, Wright seemed to do anything but middle it but it still raced for a one-bounce four past straight long-on

48.5

Mills to Wright, 1 run, back and pulled hard to deep midwicket

England 330/5   LJ Wright 20* (9b 2x4 1x6)

49.3

Martin to Wright, 4 byes, oh dear ... Wright looks to paddle the ball over the keeper, misses, it bounces in front of McCullum who, tiredly, lets it through his legs

49.4

Martin to Wright, 2 runs, low fulls toss hit off the bottom of the bat, long-on fields but he should have not allowed them to come back for such an easy second

49.5

Martin to Wright, 2 runs, a step and driven hard to long-off while on one knee, again Collingwood hurtles back to the danger end to get a second

49.6

Martin to Wright, OUT, low full toss hit high towards long-on, Fulton sprints in, makes a lot of ground, dives, and holds the ball a foot above the turf. An excellent catch for the big man gets the crowd excited but it's all rather late ...

LJ Wright c Fulton b Martin 24 (19m 13b 2x4 1x6) SR: 184.61

England 340/6   LJ Wright 24 (13b 2x4 1x6)
