    13.1 Vincent tries to hit against the spin, gets a massive top edge and Flintoff, a few feet inside the 30-yard circle at mid-on, waits and waits and then holds the catch with nonchalant ease 81/1
    46.5 tried to give himself room to hit through the covers, a thick and edge and Nixon holds the catch. That could be that ... 232/8
    21.6 well, well ... Plunkett has his man, and that is due reward for a fine over. Fulton went for the pull, was through the shot too early, and a steepling top-edge plopped comfortably into the hands of Ian Bell in the covers 107/2
    34.1 England have got the wicket! And it's a run-out from Flintoff's first ball of the new spell! Fleming defended into the covers and set off for the run, Taylor hesitated, Fleming stopped dead, retreated, Taylor kept on coming, and Flintoff fielded the ball and hurtled down to the non-striker's end! Big breakthrough 169/3
    41.3 He's holed out to Monty! Slightly shorter from Collingwood, but it was a slower ball, and Panesar at mid-off held on to a simple chance that no doubt looked pretty difficult as it looped towards him! Could there be a late twist in this match? 203/4
    42.4 slightly fuller, again Oram looks to crash it out the ground ... this time the edge is finer and at a perfect height for Nixon who only has to move a foot or two to his left 208/5
    44.3 straight and full, McCullum shimmies to leg and is bowled off his pads 212/6
    45.6 full toss heaved right to Vaughan at midwicket. Collingwood finishes with 2 for 46 to add to his hundred and New Zealand need something Lazarus-like now 224/7
