Played at North Sydney Oval, Sydney (neutral venue)
22 March 2009 (50-over match)

Guha to Pulford, OUT, big wicket! Short and wide, slashes hard, connects well but ends up hitting it straight to Claire Taylor at backward point who snaps a sharp chance, stayed her ground there, was unperturbed by the speed at it which that was hit and pouched it comfortably, England strike, finally

KL Pulford c SC Taylor b Guha 8 (29m 23b 1x4 0x6) SR: 34.78

New Zealand Women 26/1   HM Tiffen 12* (25b 2x4)   IT Guha 4-0-16-1

Shaw to Bates, OUT, Bates goes, and the pair that dominated against Pakistan has now been separated after adding just 23, full on the off stump and Bates is tempted to clear to mid-on which she fails to do, mistimes it straight to Atkins who takes it comfortably

SW Bates c Atkins b Shaw 2 (15m 7b 0x4 0x6) SR: 28.57

New Zealand Women 49/2   HM Tiffen 26* (38b 4x4)   NJ Shaw 0.3-0-3-1

Shaw to Satterthwaite, OUT, trouble for New Zealand! Bowled on a good length outside off, has a lazy prod at it, moves away, takes the outside edge and the wicketkeeper makes no mistake

AE Satterthwaite c †SJ Taylor b Shaw 0 (1m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

New Zealand Women 49/3   HM Tiffen 26* (39b 4x4)   NJ Shaw 0.4-0-3-2

Shaw to Tiffen, OUT, England are firmly in control now, Shaw's proved a potentially match-winning replacement here, short of a good length outside off and Tiffen tries to chop it down wide of point, gets a thick edge and Sarah Taylor cups it easily

HM Tiffen c †SJ Taylor b Shaw 30 (62m 56b 4x4 0x6) SR: 53.57

New Zealand Women 62/4   SJ McGlashan 9* (8b 2x4)   NJ Shaw 2.5-0-11-3

Colvin to McGlashan, OUT, McGlashan goes, it's bowled full on middle and leg and she just chips it to Greenway positioned exactly for that shot at short midwicket, what now for New Zealand?

SJ McGlashan c Greenway b Colvin 21 (25m 20b 4x4 0x6) SR: 105.00

New Zealand Women 74/5   AL Mason 0* (3b)   HL Colvin 3.2-1-12-1

Marsh to Mason, OUT, bowled round her legs this time, similar delivery, attempts a similar shot, except that the ball spun in towards leg stump this time, she missed and the sticks behind her took a battering

AL Mason b Marsh 13 (28m 18b 2x4 0x6) SR: 72.22

New Zealand Women 92/6   NJ Browne 5* (15b 1x4)   LA Marsh 2.2-1-9-1

Brunt to Tsukigawa, OUT, the bowling change works, bowled on a good length outside off, got enough movement away from the batsman, Sukigawa chased it though it was neither short nor too wide to cut, got a thick edge and Sarah Taylor, who's been kept busy today, takes another sitter

SJ Tsukigawa c †SJ Taylor b Brunt 2 (16m 18b 0x4 0x6) SR: 11.11

New Zealand Women 101/7   NJ Browne 12* (31b 1x4)   KH Brunt 7-3-21-1

Marsh to Doolan, 1 wide, OUT, stumped, fired in down the leg side anticipating Doolan to give her the charge, she missed and Sarah Taylor did an excellent job to collect it cleanly and clip the bails to find the batsman well out of her crease

LR Doolan st †SJ Taylor b Marsh 48 (54m 57b 8x4 0x6) SR: 84.21

New Zealand Women 164/8   NJ Browne 24* (73b 2x4)   LA Marsh 9.3-3-34-2

Edwards to Devine, OUT, gone for a duck, quicker ball bowled flat on middle, it holds its line, Devine has a wild swing at it, tries to hoick it over midwicket, she misses, is rapped on the pads in line with the stumps and the umpire has no hesitation

SFM Devine lbw b Edwards 0 (4m 5b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

New Zealand Women 166/9   NJ Browne 25* (76b 2x4)   CM Edwards 3.5-1-13-1

Shaw to Browne, OUT, gets her fourth and New Zealand have folded for a below-par score, slower ball bowled on a good length outside off, cut back into the right hander, caught her on the pads as she tried to turn it towards square leg, Shaw was convinced and so was the umpire

NJ Browne lbw b Shaw 25 (98m 78b 2x4 0x6) SR: 32.05

New Zealand Women 166/10   RH Priest 0* (1b)   NJ Shaw 8.2-0-34-4
