ICC World Twenty20 - 17th match, Group E

England v New Zealand

New Zealand won by 5 runs

5.6

Broad to McMillan, no run, right on the spot first ball, and the dangerous McMillan plays himself in

New Zealand 31/4   CD McMillan 0* (1b)

8.2

Collingwood to McMillan, 1 leg bye, line and length, and no width to play with. New Zealand are on the ropes

8.4

Collingwood to McMillan, 1 run, a swish and a miss outside off stump. England have taken the pace off the ball at precisely the right time of this innings

New Zealand 39/4   CD McMillan 1* (3b)

9.6

Mascarenhas to McMillan, 1 run, wide of the crease and angled onto middle stump. A gentle push down the ground to keep the strike

New Zealand 60/4   CD McMillan 2* (4b)

10.1

Schofield to McMillan, 1 run, floated and driven hard to deep mid-off, well picked up and returned with real zip

10.3

Schofield to McMillan, 2 runs, one step and leaved into the off side, it goes high and far but long-on and deep cover can't get there and it bounces harmlessly between them

10.4

Schofield to McMillan, SIX, now that he middled, same shot but that time he connected and it flew high and far into the crowd

10.5

Schofield to McMillan, 1 run, pushed into the covers

New Zealand 71/4   CD McMillan 12* (8b 1x6)

11.3

Broad to McMillan, no run, very wide, but McMillan reaches for it and just about manages to get a bat on it and bump the ball into the ground from where it loops to Solanki

11.4

Broad to McMillan, FOUR, wide full toss, creamed through the covers, no chance of the man in the deep getting anywhere near that

11.5

Broad to McMillan, no run, slower and wide, McMillan heaves and misses and then mutters in the direction of the umpire ... he thought that should have been called

11.6

Broad to McMillan, 1 run, yorker-length but outside off, squirted down to third man

New Zealand 84/4   CD McMillan 17* (12b 1x4 1x6)

12.1

Mascarenhas to McMillan, 1 run, turned off his toes to Broad at short fine leg. "Well done, Broady," chirps Solanki

12.5

Mascarenhas to McMillan, 1 run, OUT, Styris calls for a second to wide midwicket, Maddy picks up cleanly and scores a direct hit at the bowler's end and Styris is well short ... the umpire calls for the replay but Styris knows and he is heading off.

SB Styris run out 42 (33m 31b 1x4 4x6) SR: 135.48

12.6

Mascarenhas to McMillan, 1 run, flicked of his pads to deep midwicket

New Zealand 92/5   CD McMillan 20* (15b 1x4 1x6)

13.1

Anderson to McMillan, 2 runs, super running, cut to third man and McMillan was sprinting back for the second even as the throw was on its way, the fielder was off balance and he spotted that and gambled

13.2

Anderson to McMillan, 1 run, a more sedate single into the off

13.4

Anderson to McMillan, 1 run, slower - 67mph - yorker-length but outside off, the bat jabs down and the ball bobbles into the off

13.6

Anderson to McMillan, 1 run, full and outside off, hit on the half volley to deep extra cover

New Zealand 100/5   CD McMillan 25* (19b 1x4 1x6)

14.1

Mascarenhas to McMillan, SIX, and that really is massive ... hit straight and far, into the second tier of the stand and to the biggest boundary as well

14.2

Mascarenhas to McMillan, 2 runs, heaved to leg towards cow corner, it falls short and Maddy slides and flicks the ball back as he hits the boundary marker ... referred to the third umpire but that was good fielding

14.3

Mascarenhas to McMillan, FOUR, well improvised, a bouncer that he helped on its way to the third-man boundary. He really reached for that and played what was almost a tennis shot

14.4

Mascarenhas to McMillan, 1 run, into the leg side, McMillan wanted two but it wasn't there

14.6

Mascarenhas to McMillan, no run, slanted in at the pads, McMillan misses with an attempted swish to leg

New Zealand 114/5   CD McMillan 38* (24b 2x4 2x6)

15.2

Collingwood to McMillan, 2 runs, outside off, heaved towards long-on, Pietersen runs in bit can't quite get to the ball as it bounces a yard in front of him

15.3

Collingwood to McMillan, FOUR, McMillan opens his arms and slashed that through extra cover, well placed and timed as well

15.4

Collingwood to McMillan, SIX, he brings up his fifty off 27 balls by launching Collingwood over square leg into the grassy knoll

15.5

Collingwood to McMillan, SIX, groundhog day ... heaved over midwicket ten rows back

15.6

Collingwood to McMillan, 1 run, driven up the ground to long-off and, crucially, he keeps the strike

New Zealand 134/5   CD McMillan 57* (29b 3x4 4x6)

16.1

Maddy to McMillan, no run, McMillan slightly cramped and can't get it away

16.2

Maddy to McMillan, OUT, a step to leg and McMillan slams that high but not with enough power to clear long-off

CD McMillan c Mascarenhas b Maddy 57 (40m 31b 3x4 4x6) SR: 183.87

New Zealand 134/6   CD McMillan 57 (31b 3x4 4x6)
