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

26.5

Ryder to Mustard, OUT, driven to Oram ten yards in from the long-on boundary, the fielder never had to move

P Mustard c Oram b Ryder 83 (108m 74b 11x4 2x6) SR: 112.16

England 158/1   AN Cook 69* (87b 8x4)   JD Ryder 0.5-0-1-1

26.6

Ryder to Cook, OUT, two in two as Cook plays all round a straight one and has his middle stump pegged back ... a jubilant Ryder is mobbed as well he might be as he's removed both openers in his first over

AN Cook b Ryder 69 (109m 88b 8x4 0x6) SR: 78.40

England 158/2   IR Bell 0* (0b)   JD Ryder 1-0-1-2

39.1

O'Brien to Bell, OUT, the breakthrough at last, and O'Brien has his maiden scalp. Short, but a touch quicker than England have been used to in recent overs. A steepling top-edge, well pouched in the deep by Kyle Mills. Timely for New Zealand, but a handy innings nonetheless

IR Bell c Mills b O'Brien 43 (51m 41b 5x4 0x6) SR: 104.87

England 232/3   KP Pietersen 31* (32b 3x4)   IE O'Brien 4.1-0-34-1

43.5

Vettori to Pietersen, OUT, cunning stuff ... Vettori holds one back, Pietersen is way too early as he aims to thump the ball over midwicket and the ball ever-so-gently clomps into the stumps

KP Pietersen b Vettori 50 (70m 47b 4x4 1x6) SR: 106.38

England 277/4   PD Collingwood 25* (13b 3x6)   DL Vettori 7.5-0-55-1

45.4

Vettori to Shah, OUT, another wicket for Vettori but they are coming at a cost ... tossed up, Shah goes for the straight six but gets too much elevation and Fulton has time to come five yards in from the boundary to take a good catch at long-off

OA Shah c Fulton b Vettori 5 (7m 7b 0x4 0x6) SR: 71.42

England 291/5   PD Collingwood 34* (17b 4x6)   DL Vettori 8.4-0-65-2

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   PD Collingwood 54* (30b 6x6)   CS Martin 10-2-70-1
