    25.1 quicker one, pitches on leg, straightens and Cook is caught in his crease. It looked banged to rights and the umpire has no doubts either 105/3
    2.2 oh dear, well, he was never going to hang around. A monstrous heave off a good length, a spiralling leading edge, and Jamie How judges the ball well at cover, as it holds up in the wind and plops from floodlight-height into his safe hands 5/1
    14.1 half volley, he looks to hit over long-off but underclubs and Flynn, a yard or so in from the boundary, takes a good catch in front of his face 57/2
    30.2 the sucker punch! One sighter, then the monstrous heave over midwicket. But Patel held that one up a touch, and Jesse Ryder circled in the deep to take a comfortable chance. That's a major blow to England's ambitions 119/4
    33.6 a stunning delivery, rips past Collingwood's floundering edge, drags him out of the crease, and McCullum whips off the bails in an instant! Superb delivery, and as the strains of Coronation Street play out across the stadium, the skipper has to depart 128/5
    46.5 wide and slightly short, Shah slashes, gets a thin edge and McCullum takes a really good catch and doesn't he know it ... he sets off on a whooping celebration and well he might. A catch like that standing up is always hard ... 201/7
    46.2 a wide full toss which he doesn't get hold of, Taylor ten yards in at long-off waits and takes a routine catch 197/6

    11.2 McCullum calls Ryder for a sharp single, he's slow to respond and as he struggles to make his ground his bat jams into the pitch and is torn out of his hand ... he'd have been on his way anyway as Pietersen at cover picked up and threw down the off stump 103/1
    15.6 the briefest of reprieves for McCullum, he aims to heave the ball over midwicket, misses, and the off stump is pegged back 118/2
    21.4 short and outside off, How steps to leg and aims a wild slash, gets a thin top edge and Mustard holds on 147/3

    32.4 another indifferent delivery, and an even more indifferent shot - wide outside off and wellied to Broad at wide mid-off. A breakthrough. 196/4
    33.3 that's utterly plumb, and suddenly there's a bit of excitement about this game. Pitches on off, nips back, and Flynn's front foot is planted. A sad end to his debut innings, but there's a finish in prospect now ... 197/5
    33.4 my goodness me, that is an incredible delivery! Perfect line and length, nips back through the gate and detonates the off stump! Sidebottom is going mental, and England are officially back in this now ...! 197/6

  • England shown up as poor value

    England were the only side not to be represented at the multi-million dollar IPL auction in Mumbai. Having witnessed some of the performances in New Zealand the franchise owners are probably thinking they haven't missed out on much

  • McCullum steers New Zealand home

    Brendon McCullum's superlative 77 from 43 balls ensured that New Zealand finished their five-match one-day series against England as they had begun it; with a thumpingly impressive victory

  • England chase share of spoils

    Paul Collingwood, England's captain, has said that drawing the one-day series against New Zealand would be one of the high-points of his young captaincy career
