Well, a short pause for breath. England looked to be off the pace until Mascarenhas' onslaught and they now have a good score to bowl at. But this small ground is known to New Zealand and there is a full house of 32,000 to cheer them on. We will be back shortly for the chase ...

Mills to Swann, 1 run, dropped ... thumped to midwicket, an inch off the ground by the time it reaches the diving fielder. That would have been an amazing catch ...

Mills to Broad, OUT, slower ball, Broad gets under it, plenty of elevation but no distance. Styris at midwicket watches it like a hawk and makes no mistake
