Tim Bresnan402015.00122000
4.4 to JD Ryder, gone this time! Ryder never really looked like scoring many today, and he's been undone by another slower cutter from Bresnan. The ball was full and Ryder lined up another nothing swipe across the line to leg with all three stumps exposed. Bowled!. 30/1
Ryan Sidebottom403518.7592210
18.4 to LRPL Taylor, gone this time! Taylor was looking for another maximum - both for the team and for his own half century - and this time he was looking to hit a fuller ball over long off. But he couldn't get the requisite elevation on the shot, and the long off fielder held a regulation chance.. 141/6
Stuart Broad403328.25115011
17.2 to SB Styris, chipped, and out! Styris backed away, Broad went full and the batsman went through with the lofted drive. Got too much underneath it though, and Luke Wright runs in to take a good, sliding catch.. 127/4
17.6 to GJ Hopkins, Hopkins goes! Broad reverted back to a shorter length, legcutter and Hopkins was through with the shot too soon. The ball took the inside edge and clattered into the stumps. 133/5
Graeme Swann403127.7550200
8.6 to AJ Redmond, great fielding again from Broad! Redmond went for the slog sweep once again, Broad was right on the ropes, and leapt forward to take the catch. He showed great awareness of the boundary line, keeping his knees bent as he took the catch adjacent to the boundary marker to make sure not to touch it.. 59/2
10.3 to BB McCullum, a vital wicket falls! McCullum went for the big heave to midwicket after taking a couple of steps down the track. He seemed to have got a good connection, but there was more height than distance in the shot and Lumb steadied himself underneath the chance to take a good, safe catch. New Zealand's middle order could struggle to assert themselves from this position.... 65/3

Fall of wickets: 1-24 (Craig Kieswetter, 2.3 ov), 2-60 (Ravi Bopara, 6.5 ov), 3-60 (Michael Lumb, 7.2 ov), 4-66 (Paul Collingwood, 8.6 ov), 5-118 (Luke Wright, 15.2 ov), 6-142 (Eoin Morgan, 17.5 ov), 7-146 (Michael Yardy, 18.2 ov)
Nathan McCullum403719.2585100
18.2 to MH Yardy, down goes another one! Yardy backed away to give himself room and lofted one to long off, the fielder set himself underneath it and another wicket goes down! Just 4 from 10 now, but England only have three wickets in hand.... 146/7
Shane Bond402927.25123100
15.2 to LJ Wright, wicket! Wright goes! Bond slipped in a slower bouncer with a man out at deep square leg, Wright takes him on but couldn't time that one, and the fielder holds on to a vital chance!. 118/5
17.5 to EJG Morgan, well, Morgan's out! The ball was short again and Morgan pulled in the air infront of square. It looked to have beaten the fielder, but Vettori ran across and timed his dive perfectly to pluck the ball out of the air. What can New Zealand do from here? They're not out of this yet.... 142/6
Kyle Mills3.1032110.1044000
2.3 to C Kieswetter, gone! Kieswetter gave himself room to try and slap the ball up and over the off side, but couldn't get underneath the ball. He timed the pants off it, but the ball went straight to McCullum at cover point and he held the sharp chance!. 24/1
Daniel Vettori402416.00102010
7.2 to MJ Lumb, gone! Vettori strikes! That was a really slow, loopy ball, Lumb went to sweep but missed it completely, was struck on the back leg and that is utterly adjacent! He was plumb, and Umpire Taufel was quick in the decision.. 60/3
Scott Styris301625.3370100
6.5 to RS Bopara, there goes another one! Bopara falls in very similar fashion to Kieswetter, giving himself some room and slashing through the off side. This time it's extra cover that takes a sharp chance - that ball was travelling! Is that the moment of inspiration New Zealand needed? A wicket certainly won't hurt their cause.... 60/2
8.6 to PD Collingwood, Styris gets another one! He really slowed that one up, it was a very slow offcutter and Colly was into the nurdle too soon, clipping straight to McCullum at midwicket. New Zealand are ecstatic!. 66/4
