    7.2 that was pure pressure - nothing more, nothing less. A length ball, smeared in front of square on the leg side, and straight to the solitary fielder at mid-on. England are wobbling 31/2
    2.6 tapped into the covers, and Vettori pings down the stumps with Mustard nowhere near the frame! That's England's seventh run-out in this series. Their fielders didn't hit the stumps once, now New Zealand have made direct hits twice in two attempts ... 18/1

    30.1 faster, flatter arm ball traps Bell back in the crease ...it was hitting, no doubts there, but was there a sniff of an edge? It matters not a jot because he's on his way ... but he's muttering all the way back to the hutch ... 138/3
    32.6 he misses an intended flick to leg, and Rauf gives another lbw ... he was a long way forward but despite that it looked a sound decision. Not that Pietersen would agree, and he stares long and hard at the hapless official as he heads off 149/4
