    3.2 back of a length and it brings reward. Rutherford went for the pull, was a little cramped for room, and it looped up off a top edge to midwicket 31/1
    12.5 drilled! Straight to the captain. That should seal it for England. Guptill can't believe he has slotted a full ball straight to mid-off. Struck it cleanly, but didn't place it. 111/4
    4.5 gone! Brilliant catch! Massive moment for England. Eoin Morgan has held a superb catch running back from point. McCullum used his feet, when for a booming drive and it slices off a thick edge. Morgan turned, kept his eye on the ball and swallowed the chance 46/2
    9 finds the fielder! That's another crucial blow. Aiming one of his trademark midwicket blows off the front foot but doesn't get the distance. Came from low down on the bat. England safe in the field. 77/3

    14.4 and another...Broad making a mark on his international return. Pretty ugly heave from Munro to a length delivery, an off-cutter that he didn't pick, and the stumps get splattered. Clever from Broad, subtle changes of pace 128/6
    14.1 strikes first ball back. Franklin moving to leg to open up the off side, another back-of-a-length delivery, and he gets a thick top edge 127/5
    15.5 massive top edge and well caught by Buttler who steadied himself, much like McCullum earlier, and pouched it. He had to reach a little at the end, but had it under control 134/7
    16.1 another one goes, falling like skittles now, as Ellis gives himself room but can only lob the short ball to point...credit to Finn, to, as that was an off-cutter 135/8

    18.2 four for Broad, he's having a productive start in New Zealand. Boult trying to carve it over the off side and lobs a catch to cover. Nearly popped out of Samit's hands 156/9
