    8.6 right up there, straight and true and there's little doubt that that's out. Full length, Strauss looking to play across the line, and that would have comfortably taken leg stump 30/2
    6.2 wide half volley angled across the right hander, a rather loose flash and a thick edge is well held at chest height by Fleming at first slip ... Fleming makes a sarcastic appeal to the umpire and who can blame him ... 21/1
    10.3 gone! It went low and just about carried to Fleming at first slip who does well to snap up a tidy catch. England are in trouble now at 31 for 3 31/3
    34.1 oh what a catch! Gillespie at long-on came hurtling in, realised that Joyce had actually timed it very well and had to backpedal, leaping at full stretch to pluck that two-handed out of the air. Jonty Rhodes would have been proud of that one 107/7
    24.2 "that's out" cries everyone in the office before the umpire has even got chance to raise his finger. Collingwood on one knee trying to sweep there and that would have gone straight one - great ball 76/4
    28.6 got him! Flintoff goes! Vettori deserved that wicket, having bowled really beautifully. That was a great delivery, tempting Flintoff into a big whoosh, he takes the faintest of inside edges and McCullum does well to pouch that with two hands 92/5
    33.2 inside edge and Nixon goes! Nixon stands there in disbelief, but there was a definite noise as it brushes the inside edge on the way through to McCullum and that's 100 ODI wickets for Oram. Will this be the turning point of the match? 107/6
    34.3 oh dear. Head hanging all round for England and jubilation for New Zealand. Wide and steered straight to slip where Fleming takes an easy catch 107/8
    37.5 it's all over! A thick outside edge flies to first slip and that's taken, jugglingly if that's a word, by Fleming who's done very well in the slips tonight, backing up the rest of his fielders. 120/10
    37.4 tries to bang in a bouncer, Panesar bunts that high in the air and that's a very fine catch indeed from Astle, dribbling backwards and taking that right over his head with two hands. Good stuff and now it's Bond's turn to bring up 100 ODI wickets 120/9
