ICC World Twenty20, 2007/08 / Commentary

ICC World Twenty20 - 17th match, Group E

England v New Zealand

New Zealand won by 5 runs

0.2

Anderson to McCullum, FOUR, this is verging on the rubbish from Anderson. Four consecutive leg-side deliveries, and this time the deflection takes the ball over the ropes

New Zealand 7/0   BB McCullum 4* (1b 1x4)   JM Anderson 0.2-0-6-0

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

New Zealand 15/1   L Vincent 8* (6b 1x4)   SCJ Broad 0.5-0-8-0

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

New Zealand 83/4   CD McMillan 16* (10b 1x4 1x6)   SCJ Broad 2.4-0-22-1

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

New Zealand 89/4   SB Styris 41* (30b 1x4 4x6)   AD Mascarenhas 2.3-0-26-0

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

New Zealand 112/5   CD McMillan 37* (22b 2x4 2x6)   AD Mascarenhas 3.3-0-41-0

15.3

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

New Zealand 121/5   CD McMillan 44* (26b 3x4 2x6)   PD Collingwood 1.3-0-11-0

16.3

Maddy to Oram, FOUR, Oram slashes a wide ball inches over a leaping extra cover and there's nobody out there to mop up

New Zealand 138/6   JDP Oram 8* (5b 1x4)   DL Maddy 0.3-0-4-1

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 ...

New Zealand 158/8   DL Vettori 12* (7b 1x4)   SCJ Broad 3.3-0-29-1

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

New Zealand 162/8   DL Vettori 16* (8b 2x4)   SCJ Broad 3.4-0-33-1
