England in New Zealand Test Series - 2nd Test

New Zealand v England

England won by 126 runs

Overs 1-50  | Overs 51-100

1.5

Anderson to Bell, OUT, cleans him up! Scorcher of a delivery that goes full, pitches in line with middle and swings back out, taking off stump, the batsman playing all around that one

MD Bell b Anderson 0 (8m 6b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

New Zealand 4/1   JM How 3* (5b)   JM Anderson 0.5-0-0-1

5.6

Anderson to How, OUT, got him! Anderson on the money once more, the batsman coming forward, driving straight in front of him, the ball catches the outside edge hard and goes on to Strauss who takes a straightforward catch at first slip

JM How c Strauss b Anderson 7 (28m 19b 0x4 0x6) SR: 36.84

New Zealand 9/2   SP Fleming 1* (11b)   JM Anderson 3-1-3-2

15.4

Anderson to Sinclair, OUT, goddim! Excellent line just outside off, Sinclair pokes at it and gets a thin edge through to a gleeful to Ambrose

MS Sinclair c †Ambrose b Anderson 9 (40m 25b 1x4 0x6) SR: 36.00

New Zealand 31/3   SP Fleming 14* (44b 1x4)   JM Anderson 7.4-2-13-3

37.4

Anderson to Fleming, OUT, fired across him and this time he does play, trapped in the crease and cuts out to backward point, trying to pull out of the hard shot and pops it over softly. Caught in two minds and caught by Pietersen

SP Fleming c Pietersen b Anderson 34 (163m 93b 2x4 0x6) SR: 36.55

New Zealand 102/4   LRPL Taylor 50* (83b 9x4)   JM Anderson 13.4-3-37-4

42.5

Sidebottom to Oram, OUT, swung back in to the left hander and Sidebottom takes his first wicket as Oram prods down the track in line with middle and off, trapping him in line with middle

JDP Oram lbw b Sidebottom 8 (23m 22b 1x4 0x6) SR: 36.36

New Zealand 113/5   LRPL Taylor 53* (92b 9x4)   RJ Sidebottom 14.5-2-22-1

43.2

Anderson to Taylor, OUT, five for Anderson! Taylor's caught behind as the ball rips through outside off, curls away ever so slightly, and he pushes out at it off the back foot, sending a mere feather through but it's enough to dislodge him

LRPL Taylor c †Ambrose b Anderson 53 (127m 94b 9x4 0x6) SR: 56.38

New Zealand 113/6   BB McCullum 0* (1b)   JM Anderson 16.2-4-41-5

48.5

Broad to McCullum, OUT, well, they won't need Monty to remove McCullum as he's gone to Broad...a forceful edge low to first slip as he pushes outside off where Andrew Strauss takes a sharp chance, great strike for Broad who hasn't lost his head

BB McCullum c Strauss b Broad 25 (36m 21b 5x4 0x6) SR: 119.04

New Zealand 165/7   DL Vettori 19* (14b 3x4)   SCJ Broad 7.5-0-33-1

51.3

Collingwood to Mills, OUT, well, well would you believe it, Collingwood has the wicket...a gentle ball outside off stump and Mills just slaps it straight at cover where Ian Bell takes a simple catch...a waste for New Zealand

KD Mills c Bell b Collingwood 1 (13m 10b 0x4 0x6) SR: 10.00

New Zealand 176/8   DL Vettori 29* (20b 4x4)   PD Collingwood 4.3-0-20-1

53.2

Collingwood to Gillespie, OUT, maybe it was a plan after all! Gillespie on strike and misses a straight ball from Collingwood, another wicket for England's No. 1 allrounder

MR Gillespie b Collingwood 0 (9m 5b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

New Zealand 180/9   DL Vettori 33* (26b 5x4)   PD Collingwood 5.2-1-20-2

57.5

Collingwood to Martin, OUT, and Collingwood finishes it, a straight ball which hits leg stump...it didn't take long

CS Martin b Collingwood 1 (19m 11b 0x4 0x6) SR: 9.09

New Zealand 198/10   DL Vettori 50* (42b 7x4 1x6)   PD Collingwood 7.5-1-23-3
