18.2 and the pressure pays off, How trying to go over the top of cover just manages to pick out Luke Wright at cover...the bat twisted in his hand and a deserved second wicket for Broad 72/3
    8.1 and Broad strikes with his first ball! McCullum steps back and cuts one which rises up from outside off straight into Bell's hands at extra cover 52/1
    13.5 dabbed down to the gully where Collingwood picks it up and like a rocket his direct hit runs out Marshall by a good three inches 61/2
    24.3 gone...and Wright gets the key wicket in rather strange style, Taylor just chipping a catch straight down to Sidebottom at long-on, it was barely a push from Taylor but he timed it so well, too well in fact, and it was a simple catch 101/4
    29.1 the pressure tells again, and that should be the match well and truly sown up for England as Styris picks out deep midwicket as he tries to find a boundary...something had to give, the run rate has only been going one way 116/5
    37.2 ah, Flynn goes, adjudged to have strangled through to Ambrose and at first it looks as if he clearly has, but replays show that the ball brushed the thigh pad 165/6
    40.1 width outside off, cut to point and that's held by Bopara on his knees at backward point 179/7
    40.3 down on one knee, shouts of "Catch it!" and Collingwood has two wickets in three balls, Vettori picking out Anderson in the deep with his pull 180/8
    42.1 backs away and goes for the pull, hits it up a lot higher than he wanted, Wright running hard from midwicket and catches it over his head, excellent catch, particularly with plenty of fielders rushing round near him 187/9
    42.5 Bell closes out the match with a catch in the covers, Southee leaning back and chipping up right to the fielder 193/10
