  • Ryan Sidebottom4-0-19-2
  • James Anderson4-0-36-1

Well, that's the end of another disappointing match, although it contained some good cricket earlier on. For the second time England have posted a score too large for New Zealand's batsmen and although it's early days, you have to worry about the home side in the one-day series to come. New Zealand are in transition after recent retirements and it has to be hoped that rumours one or two more players are on their way are not accurate.

As the remaining spectators head into the cold night, that's all from us for today. Join us again on Saturday at 2.00pm (0100GMT) for the first match in the five-game ODI series. Until then it's goodnight from Martin Williamson and Andrew Miller.

  • James Anderson4-0-36-1
  • Ryan Sidebottom3-0-12-2

"Sidebottom's combined series stats are 6.2-0-28-5. Who says this is a batsman's game?" says Andrew Miller from out in the ether.

Anderson to Southee, 1 run, finally Anderson aims for the stumps and that allows Southee to free his arms and drive square on the off side

Anderson to Southee, no run, way down the leg side - about five feet - but he was only following where the batsman was heading, Mustard takes a low one that scoots through to him

Bowden still commanding as much camera time as his antics can guarantee.

Anderson to Southee, FOUR runs, a swipe over midwicket from a yard outside leg

Anderson to Mills, 1 run, he's going to be treading on square-leg's toes if he moves any more to the on side ... Anderson follows and cramps him up

Anderson to Mills, FOUR runs, inside edge beats a diving Mustard. It was down the leg but the batsman had moved way outside the line to play it

James Anderson back ...

Sidebottom to Southee, no run, he follows the batsman who can get no power into the shot and Sidebottom fields

Sidebottom to Southee, no run, full and down the leg side. had he stood where he was it would have been a wide, as it was it passed between batsman and stumps and Mustard made a tidy stop
17.4
0
Sidebottom to Southee, no run, driven to mid-off who has come up for the tailender

The crowd are heading home. It's very cold and they've seen enough. It's like watching Newcastle's stands empty when Big Sam was in charge.

Sidebottom to Hitchcock, OUT, full and straight, a swing across the line, a miss and an uprooted middle stump

PA Hitchcock b Sidebottom 13 (14m 11b 1x4 1x6) SR: 118.18

Sidebottom to Mills, no run, a big stride to leg but Sidebottom fires in a yorker-length delivery two feet outside off and there's no way he can get a bat on that

Here's Ryan Sidebottom.
