ICC World Twenty20 - 17th match, Group E

England v New Zealand

New Zealand won by 5 runs

4.4

Flintoff to Styris, 1 run, Styris is off the mark first ball with a nudge into the gap

New Zealand 28/3   SB Styris 1* (1b)

5.3

Broad to Styris, no run, lovely line and length again. Fizzes through to the increasingly confident Solanki

5.4

Broad to Styris, 1 run, sharp single, the shy misses at the non-striker's end

New Zealand 31/3   SB Styris 2* (3b)

6.1

Anderson to Styris, no run, full length and tight line, through to the keeper with minimal fuss

6.2

Anderson to Styris, 2 runs, too short, and swivel-pulled into the leg-side. No great timing however

6.3

Anderson to Styris, no run, short again but Styris can't time this one either. New Zealand are looking a little keen to get on with it at the moment. As well they might

6.4

Anderson to Styris, no run, fuller length, and driven to cover

6.5

Anderson to Styris, no run, elegant strike off the front foot, but well fielded at short cover, and another valuable dot ball

6.6

Anderson to Styris, 1 run, slower ball to finish the over. Styris picks it but doesn't time it, and long-on tidies up for another single. Good over for England

New Zealand 34/4   SB Styris 5* (9b)

7.1

Mascarenhas to Styris, no run, short of a length, and nudged out to point

7.2

Mascarenhas to Styris, no run, defended off the front foot this time. Clever change of pace

7.3

Mascarenhas to Styris, no run, lovely delivery. Outside off stump and climbing off the seam. Solanki takes well with a leap

7.4

Mascarenhas to Styris, no run, good lift again, Styris attempts to waft round the corner, but can't make contact

7.5

Mascarenhas to Styris, no run, excellent bowling, tempting but constraining and Styris can do nothing

7.6

Mascarenhas to Styris, 1 run, a single at last, but nothing more than that as third man sweeps round to pick up. Well bowled Dimitri

New Zealand 35/4   SB Styris 6* (15b)

8.1

Collingwood to Styris, 1 run, nudged into the gap on the off side

8.3

Collingwood to Styris, 1 run, hustled into the covers, lots of shouting as the shy comes in but safe enough

8.5

Collingwood to Styris, no run, full length, almost a yorker length, and dug out with a straight bat

8.6

Collingwood to Styris, 1 run, floated up to the pads and whipped into the leg side to complete a very tidy over

New Zealand 40/4   SB Styris 9* (19b)

9.1

Mascarenhas to Styris, SIX, that's massive. Just a little bit too short from Mascarenhas, and at his pace he can't afford to do that. Styris climbed into that and smacked it clean over the midwicket stand

9.2

Mascarenhas to Styris, SIX, slightly fuller, but that's the same result! Down on one knee and lots of bottom hand. One bounce off the roof of the midwicket stand and away into the road!

9.3

Mascarenhas to Styris, SIX, take that! Faster and flatter, but the same result. 666, the number of the beast!

9.4

Mascarenhas to Styris, no run, wider of the stumps this time. Sensibly so

9.5

Mascarenhas to Styris, 1 run, wider and fuller is the way forward, driven into the covers

New Zealand 59/4   SB Styris 28* (24b 3x6)

10.2

Schofield to Styris, 1 run, one step to make a full delivery into a full toss, driven to the man in the deep on the cover boundary

10.6

Schofield to Styris, 1 run, back on his stumps and flicked to deepish square leg

New Zealand 72/4   SB Styris 30* (26b 3x6)

11.1

Broad to Styris, SIX, full toss and that got exactly what it deserved, smacked onto the roof of the stand beyond midwicket and it's stuck up there

11.2

Broad to Styris, 1 run, wider and flat-batted to deep cover

New Zealand 79/4   SB Styris 37* (28b 4x6)

12.2

Mascarenhas to Styris, no run, Styris throws everything into that slog but missed, Solanki takes

12.3

Mascarenhas to Styris, FOUR, he connects at the second time of asking, Solanki yells "catch it" but it bounces safely between the men in the deep

12.4

Mascarenhas to Styris, 1 run, swished into the leg side

New Zealand 90/4   SB Styris 42* (31b 1x4 4x6)
