Ryan Sidebottom1003713.70394011
48.5 to JDP Oram, another full toss, Oram thumps that over Bell at wide mid-on, it seems for all the world to be falling beyond him but he turns, runs and dives full length to take a brilliant catch as the ball drops over his shoulder. 223/9
James Anderson1014124.10413200
1.5 to BB McCullum, massive breakthrough and that's good aggression from Anderson. Another short ball, angling in and cramping McCullum as he attempted to cut his way out of trouble. Alastair Cook at slip claims a simple looped chance. England are up and running. 7/1
11.1 to JD Ryder, the sucker punch ... short, Ryder pulls and it goes straight down the throat of the man out in the deep five yards behind square. Mascarenhas hardly has to move and he turns and shows the ball to spectators who have been giving him some verbals. 40/3
Stuart Broad1013233.20390200
10.4 to JM How, How looks to drive through extra cover, the ball squirts off a thick edge and scoots to the left of Collingwood at backward point who takes a good, low catch ... it wasn't going hard but it was dying on him. 40/2
14.5 to SB Styris, short, he pulls from outside off and Mascarenhas at shortish midwicket takes a really good catch above his head. It was slightly too short for the pull and that's why he couldn't get on top of it and ended up playing more of a tennis swat. 53/4
45.5 to KD Mills, short, Mills takes the bait and hooks, gets a big top edge and Cook comes in from the deep-midwicket boundary and has to make a late adjustment and dive forward to hold the ball inches above the turf. In this breeze that must have been swirling around and he did well. 199/8
Paul Collingwood904334.77264000
21.6 to PG Fulton, straight through a large gap between bat and pad - his footwork has been minimal throughout - and the off stump is sent flying. 64/5
29.3 to LRPL Taylor, oh dear ... salt in the wound. First the six is discounted and three balls later Taylor misses a straight one and is given lbw. He was a long way forward but it wasn't high. In normal circumstances that would be okay, but given what has already happened this over, it's bound to be a discussion point .... 95/6
41.3 to DL Vettori, as he now does every ball, Vettori steps to the leg and gives himself room, but this time he pulls the ball straight to Shah at deep midwicket. 169/7

Chris Martin704506.42185100
Jacob Oram914515.00315100
7.2 to AN Cook, that was pure pressure - nothing more, nothing less. A length ball, smeared in front of square on the leg side, and straight to the solitary fielder at mid-on. England are wobbling. 31/2
Paul Hitchcock705608.00197111
Daniel Vettori1012322.30380000
30.1 to IR Bell, faster, flatter arm ball traps Bell back in the crease was hitting, no doubts there, but was there a sniff of an edge? It matters not a jot because he's on his way ... but he's muttering all the way back to the hutch .... 138/3
32.6 to KP Pietersen, he misses an intended flick to leg, and Rauf gives another lbw ... he was a long way forward but despite that it looked a sound decision. Not that Pietersen would agree, and he stares long and hard at the hapless official as he heads off. 149/4
