    2.6 this one doesn't leave the batsman but Ronchi realises too late and is castled, top of off stump! This is exemplary stuff from Anderson, setting up Ronchi, who knows he's back in international cricket now... Two had shaped away outside off, this went on with Anderson's arm, whip-crack fast and straight through the batsman's defence, a big gap between bat and pad 12/1
    24.4 tossed up high, under-edged and gone, clattering the timber! Williamson tried to pull hard across the line, possibly a little early on the shot, good variation from Swann, who held it back, little bit of spin and the batsman almost knocked himself over trying to hit the cover off it, instead the bails went BOOM 132/2
    41.4 goes again but this has gone up rather than long and Woakes takes the catch at long leg. That is a fine catch cause it went a long long way up, a top edge from Taylor attempted the same stroke over the leg side 241/3

    7.6 sneaked through and bowled him! The extra delivery pays dividends, Cook caught on the crease, there was a gap between bat and pad and the ball perhaps nibbled back a touch, clattering into the top of middle and off. The length was good, Cook possibly could have been forward and it might have kept a touch lower than he expected - NZ don't care about any of that 50/1
    10.3 attacks again, dancing out of the crease but this time Bell screws up, the ball looping gently to mid-off! Bracewell perhaps saw him coming, the length wasn't quite hittable and the ball ballooned towards the edge of the circle. There'll be no Bell ton today 64/2

    21.4 down the wicket and goes for a lofted on-drive, doesn't get into it properly and finds long on. Once again and England batsman gets going and then gets out, New Zealand strike to stymie any progress again. Root tried to clear the ropes from a ball tossed up on middle and off but he got it low on the bat I think and the catch was straightforward for the fielder running a few yards to his left 122/3
    29.2 slower ball outside off, 55mph, Morgan tries a huge slog from outside off and nicks it to the keeper what a bonus wicket for New Zealand. What is Morgan doing trying to blast away the very first ball he's seen from Elliot? Totally done by the change of pace, through with the shot way to soon and get a thin top edge that is solidly held by Ronchi. Inspired move from Brendon McCullum 166/4
    30.1 and this might seal the deal, driven on the up and taken at short extra cover Buttler driving from just outside off without getting his foot right across to the pitch, chipping it in the air and Guptill, third time lucky, dives forward and takes the chance with two hands 169/5
    35.6 comes down the track, drifts past the bat and he's well out of his ground as Ronchi completes the stumping - that's all, Woakes! Think the bowler saw him coming, dragged it wide and there was no turn, skidded through to the keeper and this time he finishes the job without any alarums 212/6
    36.3 hit on the pad, big appeal from Mills... but Bresnan has been run out anyway by the diving Williamson from backward point! Mills went full and straight, was probably missing leg and Bresnan set off without really clocking where the ball had gone, Trott sent him back but as he laboured to return to his ground a terrific bit of work from Williamson beat him to it 213/7
    37.4 tossed up and Swann has dragged on! He's furious with himself, having given Williamson a second with his part-time offspin. It was full and wide, Swann tried to give it a whack in orthodox fashion but simply deflected the ball on to his wicket 218/8
    42.4 McClenaghan hits this time, full and straight and back goes middle! Good bowling to a tailender, pitched up and tailing in towards the wicket as Anderson made room, sneaked under the bat and physics did the rest 265/9
    44.1 hoicked into the off side, Dernbach trying to put the ball into orbit and getting it almost as far as the circle, where mid-off nearly misjudges it, probably from looking away over the horizon, before flopping forward to take the decisive catch and confirm an 86-run win for New Zealand 273/10
