    3.1 short, pulled straight to deep midwicket, the rather large Jesse Ryder did not have to move which is probably just as well. The ball came off the toe-end of the bat which is why it didn't carry the boundary 31/2
    1.5 jags back from short of a length and Wright cramped as he looks to work into the off side, it takes him on the gloves and McCullum does really well to dive to his right as the ball dies on him 12/1
    9.5 he dances down the track and hammers low to midwicket where Ross Taylor dives to his right and holds the ball a foot above the turf 85/4

    6.5 corker yorker does for Bell, he was looking to make room to hit to the off and was completely cleaned up 65/3
    17.2 rather airy drive, leaning back, to Styris at extra cover ... he takes it above his head, spills it, grabs at it with his right hand, juggles again and finally takes it at the third time of asking 160/7

    13.2 Shah sweeps across the line, misses, it's straight and that's a simple decision for the umpire 117/5
    16.4 he steps to leg and cuts the ball to third man where Patel hardly had to move 157/6

    18.4 slower ball, Broad gets under it, plenty of elevation but no distance. Styris at midwicket watches it like a hawk and makes no mistake 172/8

    6.4 pushed off the back foot to cover, no run but Ryder backing up slips, and he's not quick enough to regain his feet and although the throw from Bell was not at the stumps, Mascarenhas had enough time to gather and break the stumps and Ryder was not even in the frame 49/4
    2.2 that's the breakthrough, and it's a clever bit of bowling as well. Sidebottom saw him coming, banged it in, and McCullum's attempted pull cannons off the gloves and loops into the hands of short cover. Timely for England 18/1
    2.4 the umpire took an age, but that was plumb! Pitched on middle, nipped back off the seam. Taylor was shuffling across and Gary Baxter was searching for a reason not to give it out. He couldn't find one 19/2
    6.2 How tries to hit one over long-on but not nearly enough power and Pietersen, two yards in from the rope, doesn't have to move an inch 47/3
    8.4 Styris heaves across the line, a filthy shot, and he loses his off stump 64/5
    9.6 Fulton back and the ball rattles the top of his off stump he shapes to work it into the leg side 70/6
    19.2 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 152/10
    13.1 a step and pulled off one knee, it looks to be going all the way but Anderson leaps and parries the ball high above his head and then gathers the rebound. Had he missed, it would have carried for six 90/7
    14.2 he steps back and launches that high into the night sky, Mascarenhas comes in ten yards from long-on and takes a good catch as that was coming down from a long way up 102/8
    16.5 full, straight, and Patel, who has repeatedly been stepping to leg, misses and loses his off stump 135/9
