    3.4 and Ck has been cleaned out! Tentative footwork proves his undoing as he doesn't get forward enough to a full ball on off and the ball squeezes under his attempted forward defensive as New Zealand strike early 11/1
    24 despite Trott looking likely to depart, it is Bell who departs to end the partnership as he charges at surprise wicket-taker Franklin and top edges a carve through to the New Zealand captain behind the stumps 95/2

    44.4 Root's well-paced innings ends as he charges at Franklin and misses the smear to see his castle shattered 222/6
    40.1 Guptill takes a brilliant catch at backward point diving low to his left after Morgan had mullered a cut to a short ball off Mills, but he gets the placement wrong and pays the price 190/4
    43.3 oh Buttler goes to a lame full toss of all deliveries, could have done anything with it but ends up toeing it to cover 220/5
    48 astounding catch from the New Zealand skipper, short ball coming into the batsman, Woakes edges and McCullum initally appears wrong-footed but recovers remarkably to snaffle a one-handed take as the ball settles in his right palm 247/8
    46.1 skies a short ball way outside off miles high before gravity eventually takes effect, the ball settling in McCullum's gloves as Broad is forced to walk off to the rather mournful theme music from the popular British television soap Coronation Street 228/7
    49.3 Ross Taylor finally holds a catch and takes it safely, Swann skied the slog out towards deep midwicket and Taylor raced in and cupped it in front of him as he slid in, England bowled out for 258 258/10
    48.3 four wickets for McClenaghan and two catches for Guptill as Finn makes the day's first duck with a top edged pull which is caught three-quarters of the way to the boundary 248/9

    1 ripping delivery from England's premier pacer! Watling looks to drive a full length delivery which pitched just outside off, but didn't account for the rapid off-cut which blasts its way through Watling's defences and into the stumps as the bails go flying 2/1

    34 McCullum taps this towards mid-on, sets off and calls Williamson through before hurriedly realising there is no single, sends his partner back but Bell expertly slides and picks up the ball before flinging a good throw to Woakes, who does remarkably well to collect in front of the stumps and whip the bails off without looking to send back New Zealand's key batsman 142/3
    20 soft end to a promising New Zealand partnership as Woakes' bouncer surprises Taylor and induces a top-edged pull which sails into the big mitts of Finn at fine leg, critical breakthrough for England 75/2
    29.2 Elliott gives it away in soft fashion, outside off, not quite full enough to drive, Elliott slices it straight to Morgan at point 124/3

    37.4 another short ball down leg, this time Franklin cannot get on top of it, nips the glove and goes through to Buttler as New Zealand lose their fifth 155/5
    41 turning in from outside off, strikes him on the pad and the appeal for lbw is upheld, Nathan decides to review, replays show him possibly hitting the ball at the same time as the ball strikes the pad, appears to strike him inline and the ball is hitting, the third umpire takes his time but in the end decides to uphold the decision on the basis that there is not conclusive evidence to overturn the decision 186/6
    45.5 New Zealand lose their seventh as Ellis doesn't get enough bat on an attempted pull to a short ball on middle and off, Finn runs in from fine leg and appears to have it under control but has to use his arms to keep it in as it almost spills out 218/7

  • ODI fielding restrictions big test for bowlers - Mills

    The changes made to the 50-overs game's fielding-restrictions rules could be the biggest challenge for the bowlers going into the New Zealand-England ODIs, fast bowler Kyle Mills believes
