Liam Plunkett905436.00325070
4.6 to SP Fleming, full and swinging in, Fleming caught in no-man's land and it raps him on the pad but looks for all the world to have got a thin inside edge to that. If he didn't then it was plumb ... the umpire has no doubts. 32/1
8.5 to PG Fulton, full and on off stump, Fulton looks to drive, gets a thin edge and Nixon does well to take a low catch tumbling to his right. 53/2
40.1 to L Vincent, and the change does the trick! An easy chip to midwicket, dolly catching practice for Dalrymple, really, short in on the legs. Smart captaincy from Flintoff. 219/5
Chris Tremlett1007217.20326253
46.3 to JEC Franklin, length ball and tries to clear mid-off, but Plunkett at long-off, running backwards, holds on for a relatively easy catch. 268/7
Andrew Flintoff1006606.60308120
Monty Panesar1023523.50464110
38.3 to CD McMillan, gone this time! Tidy work from Nixon and Panesar gets the wicket he deserves, McMillan down the track to get after Panesar and misses completely. Panesar sets off in his endearingly lost-in-his-own-world celebrations, skipping and whirring his finger around. 213/4
43.6 to BB McCullum, "Catch, catch, catch!" suggests Nixon and Strauss obliges, taking that running forward and carrying on a few steps with the momentum. McCullum was going leg-side, it was too wide, so he had to adjust on the off-side. Good cameo nevertheless. 246/6
Jamie Dalrymple504308.6072140
Paul Collingwood603616.00150110
33.3 to LRPL Taylor, good bowling from Collingwood, the slower ball, a legcutter and Taylor sails that up to long-on (his hand coming off the bat) where it's Panesar... and can he... oh, Monty makes that catch look easy! Ah, it was. Nevermind, he's cool in collecting it and cool in celebrating - pointing a finger up in the air, as if to say who da man. 190/3

James Franklin814515.62295004
4.5 to MB Loye, good response from Franklin and gets the edge this time, snapped tidily at first slip. Loye was tempted to drive that and he's a victim of the angle across him once more. 27/1
Shane Bond1005815.80346111
49.6 to PA Nixon, short, swung into the leg-side, Jacob Oram dives forward and clings onto a blinder! And that is a suitably anticlimatic end to another desperate performance. 260/8
Jacob Oram502304.60183000
Jeetan Patel1005315.30303111
18.6 to IR Bell, oops! A very tame dismissal, just a regulation chip through midwicket, and Fleming stoops low to clean up. New Zealand have their breakthrough, and Bell wanders off metaphorically kicking himself. 99/2
Daniel Vettori1004024.00351110
25.1 to AJ Strauss, brilliant cricket from New Zealand! Vettori saw Strauss coming, and threw in the quicker ball, down the leg-side. It actually went straight under Strauss's legs as he advanced, and McCullum pulled off a blinding unsighted take, and whipped off the bails!. 123/3
35.2 to A Flintoff, bowled round his legs! Flintoff stepped across his stumps to work the ball into space, but didn't make contact! Oh dear. Captain, your ship is sinking. 162/6
Craig McMillan713825.42190100
32.6 to PD Collingwood, done him! and that was the reward for five excellent deliveries. Collingwood tried to improvise a boundary, got down on one knee to shovel the ball over fine-leg, but instead lobbed a catch straight to the fielder!. 156/5
40.4 to JWM Dalrymple, and a tame shot brings a tame end to a tame innings. On a good length, flopped over the covers, but not hard or high enough to beat James Franklin. And that is very jolly nearly that. 184/7
