Commentary

England underway with a fairly comfortable 32-run win, New Zealand never recovering from a sluggish start, although you wonder what might have happened had Jacob Oram come in with more on the board. For England, the difference when they batted was the over when Dimitri Mascarenhas thumped four successive sixes off Jeetan Patel, reigniting the innings and setting them on their way to a formidable score.

We are all back again in two days time, so join us then. In the meantime, from Martin Williamson and Andrew Miller, it's goodnight.

Sidebottom to Oram, OUT, and that's that .. Oram again leans back and looks to thump it over long-off but he doesn't clear Ian Bell who holds onto one that was really flzzing

Anderson to Martin, no run, full toss, pushed to long-on and neither batsman shows any interest in the single ... which means that New Zealand need 37 off the final six balls.

Anderson to Oram, FOUR runs, inside edge to fine leg, Sidebottom chases and flicks the ball back a foot inside the rope ... or does he ... the third umpire looks ... and looks ... the crowd hoot ... and four is given. Sidebottom gives a wry smile and shakes his head

Anderson to Oram, no run, driven to deep cover and another single is turned down. That's hushed the crowd who've been in good spirits
