22,23,24,25,26 March 2008 (5-day match)
  • Overs 0-50

Sidebottom to Bell, OUT, gone! this time Bell's plumb as he pads up to a ball which shapes back and hits him bang in front of all three...Bell really out of his depth, a horrible misjudgement, and the early boost England needed

MD Bell lbw b Sidebottom 0 (2m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

New Zealand 1/1   JM How 0* (1b)   RJ Sidebottom 0.3-0-0-1

Sidebottom to Fleming, OUT, gone! the breakthrough for England and Sidebottom does it again, outside off stump and Fleming plays a loose push which flies quickly to second slip where Collingwood holds on.

SP Fleming c Collingwood b Sidebottom 59 (98m 72b 9x4 1x6) SR: 81.94

New Zealand 103/2   JM How 37* (61b 7x4)   RJ Sidebottom 8.3-4-20-2

Sidebottom to How, OUT, gone! well, the round the wicket ploy has worked (so what do I know) as Sidebottom gets How to drive at a full delivery outside off stump. An edge flies nicely to Strauss at first slip and suddenly England are back in it

JM How c Strauss b Sidebottom 44 (129m 73b 8x4 0x6) SR: 60.27

New Zealand 116/3   MS Sinclair 6* (24b 1x4)   RJ Sidebottom 11.3-4-25-3

Broad to Taylor, OUT, gone! what a beauty from Broad, on off stump and takes Taylor's outside edge as he's caught on the crease...simple catch for Ambrose and England are right back in this match

LRPL Taylor c †Ambrose b Broad 2 (6m 4b 0x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

New Zealand 119/4   MS Sinclair 7* (29b 1x4)   SCJ Broad 8-0-31-1

Sidebottom to Sinclair, OUT, gone! what is going on here, a short ball which Sinclair miscues straight to mid-on where Broad snaffles a low catch...that didn't come out anywhere near the middle, another failure for Sinclair

MS Sinclair c Broad b Sidebottom 7 (37m 31b 1x4 0x6) SR: 22.58

New Zealand 119/5   GD Elliott 0* (0b)   RJ Sidebottom 12.2-4-27-4

Sidebottom to McCullum, OUT, gone! what a huge wicket for England, round the wicket, jags back at McCullum who plays an expansive cut and drags into his stumps...Sidebottom has another five-wicket haul, one in each Test this series, and his 50th Test wicket

BB McCullum b Sidebottom 9 (15m 8b 2x4 0x6) SR: 112.50

New Zealand 137/6   GD Elliott 5* (8b)   RJ Sidebottom 14-4-33-5

Sidebottom to Elliott, OUT, probing line, Elliott half fences, gets the thinnest of edges and Ambrose does the rest ... Elliott is off without looking at the umpire and Sidebottom has 6 for 33

GD Elliott c †Ambrose b Sidebottom 6 (36m 24b 0x4 0x6) SR: 25.00

New Zealand 138/7   DL Vettori 0* (6b)   RJ Sidebottom 15.4-5-33-6

Broad to Southee, OUT, another short one, Southee can do no more than fend it to Pietersen in the gully, it looped ever so slowly to him for the easiest of catches

TG Southee c Pietersen b Broad 5 (24m 20b 1x4 0x6) SR: 25.00

New Zealand 152/8   DL Vettori 8* (17b 1x4)   SCJ Broad 13.5-2-47-2

Broad to Patel, OUT, gone! a simple dismissal as Patel is early on his drive and pops a catch to Panesar at mid-off...it really is a mad day, Monty takes a catch in the outfield (ok, that's harsh)

JS Patel c Panesar b Broad 4 (25m 25b 0x4 0x6) SR: 16.00

New Zealand 164/9   DL Vettori 14* (28b 1x4)   SCJ Broad 16.5-3-50-3

Sidebottom to Vettori, OUT, gone! Sidebottom finishes the innings with his seventh wicket as Vettori gets a thick outside edge to Cook at fourth slip/fine gully...a career-best 7 for 47 for the left-armer and what a spell it has been

DL Vettori c Cook b Sidebottom 14 (72m 32b 1x4 0x6) SR: 43.75

New Zealand 168/10   CS Martin 4* (1b 1x4)   RJ Sidebottom 21.4-6-47-7
