England tour of New Zealand, 4th ODI: New Zealand v England at Napier, Feb 20, 2008
20 February 2008 (50-over match)
10.1

Oram to Mustard, no run, bouncer, but a slow one. Mustard is unaccustomed to the new pace, and almost swings himself off his feet

10.2

Oram to Mustard, 1 run, straighter, and defended with an uppish prod into the covers

10.3

Oram to Cook, 1 run, steps across and into line for a pull. Nicely timed out to deep midwicket, all along the ground

10.4

Oram to Mustard, FOUR, clubbed straight through the line and no-one's going to cut that off. Another slower delivery, instantly picked, and that's the fifty partnership

10.5

Oram to Mustard, no run, pushed out to point

10.6

Oram to Mustard, 1 run, speared into the pads, defended off the back foot, and a quick call completes the over

England 51/0   JDP Oram 1-0-7-0
12.1

Oram to Cook, no run, straight and full, jabbed back to the bowler

12.2

Oram to Cook, no run, pretty much the same place, pushed across the line to mid-on

12.3

Oram to Cook, FOUR, slower but too wide, he leans back and cuts behind square past backward point, lovely shot and super placement

12.4

Oram to Cook, 3 runs, overpitched and confidently driven off the front foot between cover and extra cover, it's pulled up just short of the rope

12.5

Oram to Mustard, 1 run, pushed to mid-on who has been forced slightly deeper by the flow of runs and that allows the single

12.6

Oram to Cook, no run, back and pushed into the covers ... a rare dot ball

England 75/0   JDP Oram 2-0-15-0
14.1

Oram to Cook, FOUR, swished sweetly off his legs, one of those effortless strokes that has you purring, timed and square leg only had to retrieve it not to chase it

14.2

Oram to Cook, no run, jabbed from some way away from him, little foot movement again, into the off side

14.3

Oram to Cook, no run, prodded into the leg side

14.4

Oram to Cook, no run, rather jerkily pushed to leg

14.5

Oram to Cook, no run, he walks to the off and the bowler follows him and keeps him cramped and he has to push the ball defensively back

14.6

Oram to Cook, no run, driven to wide mid-on

England 85/0   JDP Oram 3-0-19-0
38.1

Oram to Pietersen, 1 run, off-stump line, pushed down the ground, easy single

38.2

Oram to Bell, no run, defended solidly into the covers

38.3

Oram to Bell, FOUR, short and mown over midwicket - Bell picked that length so quickly and the fielder never had a chance

38.4

Oram to Bell, 1 run, short again, but not quite as short. Bell rides the bounce and drives into the covers

38.5

Oram to Pietersen, no run, steps across the stumps, and whipped straight to midwicket. Nice timing, but the placement was awry

38.6

Oram to Pietersen, 2 runs, picks the gap this time, worked from way outside off stump, and the sweeper picks up on the midwicket boundary

England 232/2   JDP Oram 4-0-27-0
40.1

Oram to Pietersen, no run, slowish ball - 69mph - nurdled to midwicket

40.2

Oram to Pietersen, 1 run, hard drive back at the feet of the bowler, he drops a hand and takes some of the pace off it

40.3

Oram to Collingwood, no run, loose drive, feeling for it with little footwork, McCullum takes and then throws at and hits the stumps. Collingwood had gone nowhere

40.4

Oram to Collingwood, no run, turned square and surprised by some extra bounce, the ball takes a a thick edge and lobs safely well short of point

40.5

Oram to Collingwood, 1 run, full toss driven up to long-on

40.6

Oram to Pietersen, 1 run, ball hits back rather than the other way round, deliberately, the pace comes off the ball and they scamper a single to point

England 242/3   JDP Oram 5-0-30-0
42.1

Oram to Collingwood, 1 run, short and slow outside off, forehand swat to deepish extra cover

42.2

Oram to Pietersen, 1 run, full and all he could do was drive it up to long-on

42.3

Oram to Collingwood, 2 runs, low full toss driven to Fulton at wide long-on, a good throw but a comfortable two as the fielder has a lot of ground to cover

42.4

Oram to Collingwood, 1 run, pushed to square leg, he started as if to hit it high but checked when cramped for room

42.5

Oram to Pietersen, 2 runs, skips to leg and drives on the full to long-on, super running from Collingwood who was back for the second to the danger end like a whippet

42.6

Oram to Pietersen, 1 wide, he tries to follow the batsman but he had not moved to leg and the ball arcs very wide to McCullum

42.6

Oram to Pietersen, 1 run, flicked off his feet to deep midwicket

England 269/3   JDP Oram 6-0-39-0
44.1

Oram to Shah, no run, pushed from the crease to point

44.2

Oram to Shah, 1 run, thumped hard to the left of Oram but only the one as long-off and long-on are in the deep

44.3

Oram to Collingwood, 1 run, dropped ... no more than pushed, albeit firmly, back at Oram who picks it up take and never looks like catching a head-high chance

44.4

Oram to Shah, 1 run, punched into the pitch a yard to the off from the back foot, all pace off the ball and an easy one

44.5

Oram to Collingwood, 1 run, Oram follows the batsman and cramps him enough so he can only manage the one

44.6

Oram to Shah, no run, lovely yorker as Shah shimmied to the off, he has to adjust and jab down on it, falling to the off as he does so

England 282/4   JDP Oram 7-0-43-0
