ICC World Twenty20, 2007/08 / Commentary

ICC World Twenty20 - 17th match, Group E

England v New Zealand

New Zealand won by 5 runs

0.6

Anderson to McCullum, OUT, there's the breakthrough, and it's the reserve keeper Solanki who takes the catch! Short of a length and fast from Anderson, McCullum swished loosely off the back foot, but found only a thin edge. The chance was taken comfortably enough - Anderson, all is forgiven

BB McCullum c †Solanki b Anderson 4 (4m 5b 1x4 0x6) SR: 80.00

New Zealand 7/1   L Vincent 0* (1b)   JM Anderson 1-0-6-1

2.2

Flintoff to Fulton, OUT, full length and that's plumb! Fulton was looking to work that off the legs and through midwicket, but he missed. No dispute there. Another breakthrough for England

PG Fulton lbw b Flintoff 0 (6m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

New Zealand 16/2   L Vincent 8* (7b 1x4)   A Flintoff 0.2-0-0-1

3.5

Anderson to Taylor, OUT, that's a big wicket for England. Taylor was looking itchy out there. He tried to pick Anderson off a good length, but managed only a leading edge to a back-pedalling Flintoff in the covers. Three big wickets, and England are on top

LRPL Taylor c Flintoff b Anderson 7 (6m 8b 0x4 1x6) SR: 87.50

New Zealand 25/3   L Vincent 9* (8b 1x4)   JM Anderson 1.5-0-12-2

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

New Zealand 31/4   SB Styris 2* (3b)   SCJ Broad 1.5-0-11-1

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

New Zealand 91/5   CD McMillan 19* (14b 1x4 1x6)   AD Mascarenhas 2.5-0-28-0

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   JDP Oram 4* (4b)   DL Maddy 0.2-0-0-1

16.4

Maddy to Oram, OUT, an ugly heave, Oram misses and Maddy has two wickets in three balls. A cry of anguish from Oram as the stumps are clattered

JDP Oram b Maddy 8 (15m 6b 1x4 0x6) SR: 133.33

New Zealand 138/7   DL Vettori 0* (0b)   DL Maddy 0.4-0-4-2

17.4

Collingwood to Bond, OUT, right up on the crease, Bond tries to angle the ball behind square on the off but misses and loses his off stump. Good variation of pace, the previous ball was slower, this was quicker

SE Bond b Collingwood 2 (4m 3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 66.66

New Zealand 145/8   DL Vettori 5* (3b)   PD Collingwood 2.4-0-29-1

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   DL Vettori 17* (9b 2x4)   SCJ Broad 4-0-35-1
