ICC World Twenty20, 2007/08 / Commentary

ICC World Twenty20 - 17th match, Group E

England v New Zealand

New Zealand won by 5 runs

1.1

Broad to Vincent, no run, nice tight line outside off stump, left alone

1.2

Broad to Vincent, no run, another good delivery - not much carry, strangely - but Vincent shoulders arms emphatically

1.3

Broad to Vincent, 2 runs, full length and driven airily - Broad stuck out his left hand and came close to intercepting - but the ball flies down to long-off where it's picked up inside the rope

1.4

Broad to Vincent, 2 runs, full and Vincent goes through with a chancy drive. Gets a bit of a leading edge on it, but it lands safe just out of the reach of long-on

1.5

Broad to Vincent, FOUR, shot! That was in the slot for the cover drive, and Vincent latched on in fine style. No stopping that one

1.6

Broad to Vincent, 1 wide, Broad this time strays down the leg-side. Another comfortable take from Solanki

1.6

Broad to Vincent, no run, pushed into the covers. A decent first over from Broad

New Zealand 16/1   SCJ Broad 1-0-9-0

5.1

Broad to Vincent, no run, a fraction short and a hint of width, but backward point picks up a backfoot steer with ease

5.2

Broad to Vincent, 1 run, full length, angled into the pads, pushed out to midwicket

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

5.5

Broad to Vincent, OUT, full-length, angled in and that's another big wicket, and what's more, another comfortable take for the reserve keeper! "Solanki's like Godfrey Evans out there," screams David Lloyd, as well he might. England are all over it at the moment

L Vincent c †Solanki b Broad 13 (26m 17b 1x4 0x6) SR: 76.47

5.6

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

New Zealand 31/4   SCJ Broad 2-0-11-1

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

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   SCJ Broad 3-0-23-1

19.1

Broad to Vettori, 1 run, Vettori shimmies to leg, gives himself room and drives to long-off

19.2

Broad to Gillespie, 1 run, short and nasty, Bond jumps and fends it down into the off side, no pace on the ball and that allows the single as the fielders are back on the circle

19.3

Broad to Vettori, FOUR, again Vettori skips to the off side very early, Broad bowls a full toss and Vettori eases it behind square on the leg side. The gamble pays off ...

19.4

Broad to Vettori, FOUR, again Vettori walks to the off and this time helps the ball much finer on the leg side ... it went over his off stump, so far across had he gone

19.5

Broad to Vettori, 1 run, he steps to the leg this time and drives on the half volley over the covers, Mascarenhas fields a yard in from the rope

19.6

Broad to Gillespie, 1 run, OUT, yorker length, Gillespie jams down and sends the ball zipping to deep backward point, he attempts to come back for a second but is run out by a country mile

MR Gillespie run out 7 (9m 8b 0x4 0x6) SR: 87.50

New Zealand 164/9   SCJ Broad 4-0-35-1
