"It got away from us in the middle of the innings," admits Paul Collingwood. Daniel Vettori sidesteps a question about his feelings on Twenty20 but enthuses, as well he might, about his side's performance. Craig McMillan deservedly wins the Man-of-the-Match award.

That''s it from Andrew Miller and Martin Williamson. But, unlike London buses, this being the ICC World Twenty20, there's another match along any minute now ...

A good performance from New Zealand after a sedate start to the match, they batted superbly once Craig McMillan and Scott Styris cut loose, smashing 124 off the last 11 overs of their innings. England started well but lost wickets just when it mattered and were always off the pace in the final overs. The margin looks small, but New Zealand were the better side and won with something to spare. They are now almost certainly through to the semi-finals while, barring something odd, England are heading to Sri Lanka for their one-day series earlier than anticipated.

Gillespie to Broad, 2 runs, another full toss swung into the leg side, but once more the batsman can't find the gap, they come back for the second but that doesn't matter one jot

That's it barring a no-ball or wide ...

Gillespie to Schofield, 1 run, slow full toss, Schofield pulls through midwicket off the bottom of the bat. no power and deep midwicket cleans up

Gillespie to Schofield, 2 runs, Schofield swings but doesn't get hold of it, Broad hurtles back for the second and just beats a weak throw

This has to be a boundary ... 11 off three

Gillespie to Schofield, 2 runs, heaved off middle stump to the right of long-on, that allows them to come back for the second ... but that's not enough

Gillespie to Broad, 1 run, full, driven hard down the ground, long-on makes sure he stops it and fires in a pinpoint throw ...
