New Zealand v England

England won by 126 runs

Overs 1-50  | Overs 51-100  | Overs 101-150

104.2

Gillespie to Panesar, no run, angling into Monty who nudges

104.3

Gillespie to Panesar, no run, a languid drive which nearly beats cover, but there was about as much power in the stroke as an asthmatic flee

104.4

Gillespie to Panesar, no run, short of a length and Monty says "urghh" or possibly "awwww" to one which bounces past his nose

104.5

Gillespie to Panesar, no run, wide of the off stump and ignored

104.6

Gillespie to Panesar, no run, very firmly blocked on the back foot by Monty

England 335/8   MS Panesar 0* (5b)

105.2

Martin to Panesar, no run, defended off the back foot

105.3

Martin to Panesar, 3 runs, flicked with lazy elegance and a touch of class through midwicket. "Yup" is the nonchalant call from Monty, as though it was his bread-and-butter if not his toast-and-marmite

England 339/8   MS Panesar 3* (7b)

106.1

Gillespie to Panesar, no run, punched off the back foot

106.2

Gillespie to Panesar, 3 runs, shot, Panesar. A firm-footed drive through the off side which receives hearty cheers from a good sized crowd. Much too full and Monty was comfortable on the front foot

106.6

Gillespie to Panesar, OUT, gone! Down the leg side, it rises on Monty who fends it off his chest through to McCullum

MS Panesar c †McCullum b Gillespie 6 (14m 10b 0x4 0x6) SR: 60.00

England 342/10   MS Panesar 6 (10b)
Overs 1-50  | Overs 51-100  | Overs 101-150
