Commentary

END OF OVER:
50 | 8 Runs 1 Wkt | ENG: 260/7

  • PA Nixon49 (46b)
  • LE Plunkett25 (25b)
  • SE Bond9.5-0-58-0
  • JS Patel10-0-53-1

So, England save the bonus point, but they haven't yet salvaged their dignity. They are cut adrift at the bottom of the table, but they retain a mathematical chance of qualifying for the final.

Congratulations though to New Zealand, who have once again shown the sort of prowess in one-day cricket that England so palpably lack. That's it from me, Andrew Miller, and my co-commentators, Jenny Thompson and Martin Williamson. It's been distinctly average.

W
Bond to Nixon, OUT, short, swung into the leg-side, Jacob Oram dives forward and clings onto a blinder! And that is a suitably anticlimatic end to another desperate performance
49.6
1w
Bond to Nixon, 1 wide, bouncer! And it's too short! Another chance to get there. Gosh, the artificial excitement is gripping
49.5
1
Bond to Plunkett, 1 run, full, and on middle, whipped into the leg-side to rotate the strike again, and give Nixon one ball to reach his fifty
49.4
1
Bond to Nixon, 1 run, forced onto the back foot, pushed into the covers
49.3
0
Bond to Nixon, no run, stepped inside the line, and missed
49.2

Bond to Nixon, FOUR runs, width, and carved through the covers! England have saved the bonus-point! Joy, happiness and rapture
