    9.5 gone this time, a thick outside as How drives and Bopara takes the catch at backward point but, oh boy, that went in with a juggle as well...a heart-stopping moment for Bopara but all ended well for him and England 39/1
    18.2 edged and taken this time, and thats a massive blow for New Zealand! Much better length from Anderson, forcing McCullum to poke at it and the outside-edge flies into Swann's lap at first slip, well bowled and held 71/3
    13.6 gone! he deserved that, probing line outside off stump and a rather limp push from Taylor sends a regulation edge through to Ambrose 54/2

    31.2 gone, superb bowling from Swann as he tosses this up on middle stump, Flynn drives and is beaten in the air...key breakthrough for England 124/4
    43.6 Oram gives himself room and looks to clear long-off, but he underclubs and Broad takes a straightforward catch seven or eight yards in front of the pavilion 201/5

    11.1 not this time, sorry! Bell for the umpteenth time shuffles across his stumps and tries to flick one that doesn't go on as he expected, ball pitches and straightens and thats pretty plumb 53/1
    13.2 gone now! Southee doesn't take long to strike, pitching fuller and angling it away and Cook hops up to defend, undone by the lack of bounce and the thinnest of edges is snapped 60/2
    19.5 gone! what a breakthrough and that is a huge moment in this match...given a hint of width from Southee but he can't get on top of it, slicing in the air to backward point where Oram takes a good catch 86/3

    24.4 gone! but they won't be doing it any longer, a brilliant piece of bowling by Vettori as he beats Bopara with an arm ball that slides on and crashes into the stumps...Bopara was trying to glide that away but was completely done in the flight 101/4
    46.1 and he strikes, swung high down the ground by Shah and picks out James Marshall at long off...New Zealand now that's the match well and truly sown up, the celebrations can begin 209/9
    32.1 bowled em with a quicker ball! Vettori is too much for the likes of Wright, backing away, trying to cut the arm ball, and he's in no spot to tackle that and the stumps are splayed 130/5
    34.4 quicker, wider, and Ambrose cannot control himself from reaching out and slapping that one tamely to Marshall, the substitute, at backward point 138/6
    39.1 well held, McCullum! Swann walks across his stumps to try and paddle-pull the short one angling down leg, he doesn't get more than a tickle on it and McCullum flings himself to his left and holds a good catch 164/7
    43.2 the low full toss gets a wicket, Broad heaves it down deep square-leg throat as he tries to clear the rope...Daniel Flynn holds the catch above his head 186/8

    47.5 and that's that, sliced away to backward point, Oram takes the catch and Gillespie ends the match...New Zealand all the way and huge smiles on all their faces 215/10
