England in New Zealand Test Series - 2nd Test

New Zealand v England

England won by 126 runs

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

27.2

Oram to Vaughan, OUT, BOWLED HIM! That's an absolute crackerjack from Oram, angling into Vaughan before straightening, beating Vaughan's forward defensive and clipping the top of his off stump. A wonderful delivery - an unplayable legbreak, effectively

MP Vaughan b Oram 32 (121m 80b 4x4 0x6) SR: 40.00

England 79/1   AN Cook 43* (85b 5x4)   JDP Oram 5.2-3-2-1

29.5

Oram to Cook, OUT, got him! Oram has two! A good piece of bowling on the off stump, moving away just a little but Cook's defensive poke was hardly convincing - pushing at it away from his body, and a thin edge through to McCullum

AN Cook c †McCullum b Oram 44 (132m 91b 5x4 0x6) SR: 48.35

England 82/2   AJ Strauss 2* (9b)   JDP Oram 6.5-4-2-2

36.1

Mills to Strauss, OUT, gone! A slower ball and Strauss pushes at it away from his body, the ball looping to point. He was completely done, though it was technically a desperately poor stroke

AJ Strauss c Sinclair b Mills 8 (39m 33b 1x4 0x6) SR: 24.24

England 94/3   KP Pietersen 6* (14b)   KD Mills 12.1-0-30-1

47.4

Martin to Bell, OUT, gone! top stuff from Martin who follows the inswinger with one which holds its line outside off stump. Bell meets it with a limp push which takes the outside edge, McCullum dives one-handed to his right and this time takes it safely

IR Bell c †McCullum b Martin 11 (52m 38b 2x4 0x6) SR: 28.94

England 126/4   KP Pietersen 26* (46b 3x4)   CS Martin 9.4-0-38-1

50.3

Gillespie to Pietersen, OUT, GONE! what a huge wicket for New Zealand and their dream session continues. Full ball from Gillespie, Pietersen plays all around it and the ball crashes into middle stump. Pietersen looks at the pitch but that had nothing to do with it

KP Pietersen b Gillespie 31 (95m 52b 3x4 0x6) SR: 59.61

England 136/5   PD Collingwood 0* (11b)   MR Gillespie 11.3-1-41-1

94.3

Mills to Ambrose, OUT, gone this time! A fine ball just outside off, Ambrose prods at it and the ball squirts off a thick outside edge to second slip's left. Good catch by Taylor

TR Ambrose c Taylor b Mills 102 (176m 149b 16x4 2x6) SR: 68.45

England 300/6   PD Collingwood 52* (128b 7x4)   KD Mills 26.3-3-81-2

97.3

Oram to Broad, OUT, bowled him around his legs! Broad looks quizzical, but the ball brushed his thigh pad and plonked onto his leg stump. Rather unlucky but good, straight bowling from Oram

SCJ Broad b Oram 1 (13m 7b 0x4 0x6) SR: 14.28

England 305/7   PD Collingwood 56* (139b 7x4)   JDP Oram 25.3-11-33-3

104.1

Gillespie to Collingwood, OUT, gone! Full, swinging into Collingwood who's trapped in front

PD Collingwood lbw b Gillespie 65 (236m 149b 8x4 0x6) SR: 43.62

England 335/8   RJ Sidebottom 13* (30b 1x4)   MR Gillespie 18.1-1-76-2

106.5

Gillespie to Sidebottom, OUT, short of a length, Sidebottom top-edges a pull and Bell takes a fine tumbling catch at mid-on

RJ Sidebottom c Bell b Gillespie 14 (44m 37b 1x4 0x6) SR: 37.83

England 342/9   MS Panesar 6* (9b)   MR Gillespie 19.5-2-79-3

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   JM Anderson 0* (0b)   MR Gillespie 20-2-79-4
Overs 1-50  | Overs 51-100  | Overs 101-150
