ICC World Twenty20 - 17th match, Group E

England v New Zealand

New Zealand won by 5 runs

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   AD Mascarenhas 1-0-1-0

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

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   AD Mascarenhas 2-0-21-0

12.1

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

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

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   AD Mascarenhas 3-0-29-0

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

14.5

Mascarenhas to Oram, 1 run, Oram drives to long-off, not really timed and he's not the fastest between the wickets either, so only the one

14.6

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

New Zealand 114/5   AD Mascarenhas 4-0-43-0
