BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
Chris Martin2258313.7710015010
125.5 to SCJ Broad, gone, finally Martin gets one to his name as this one squeezes between Broad's drive and takes the top of the stumps. A fine innings from Broad, and England are in a strong position. 361/9
Kyle Mills3187632.4515410002
5.1 to AN Cook, good ball from Mills! Coming over the wicket he gets one to come back in a touch and Cook plays just outside off stump, getting a thick inside edge that rockets back and takes leg stump.. 14/1
29.6 to AJ Strauss, and there's his demise, after leaving them alone he goes chasing another wide one, and I mean pretty wide, only to flash a thick outside-edge off the end of bat that is gobbled up at head height by Taylor at a wide lone slip. 84/3
31.6 to PD Collingwood, oh well held, Taylor! Mills holds back the length ever so slightly, shapes it away and Collingwood gets another duck to his name, pushing away from the body and looking on as Taylor flings himself to his left to pouch a neat catch at slip. 86/5
Iain O'Brien2347443.2110912001
12.4 to MP Vaughan, and O'Brien does the job alone! Good ball moves in a fraction, Vaughan tries for a straight drive and loses his off stump comprehensively. Not a great shot - it would have raced to the boundary had he connected - but he missed it by a long way. 44/2
30.6 to IR Bell, two in two overs, and Bell's struggles continue! O'Brien gets him for a duck, pitching full just outside off stump and moving the ball in to catch him going for a flick across the line, bat late to come down and after New Zealand shout themselves hoarse Bucknor slowly raises the finger, that looked out as Bell missed a straight one. 85/4
82.2 to KP Pietersen, what did I say? Make em play and that time O'Brien landed it in the corridor outside off stump and got Pietersen playing away from his body, front foot not going anywhere, and the regulation outside-edge is snaffed up by Hopkins, diving to his right. 247/6
86.2 to TR Ambrose, edged and taken, ending a fighting innings from Ambrose, cutting a shortish one with no footwork and paying the price, a thin under-edge gladly held by Hopkins. 262/7
Jacob Oram2273511.591082000
113.6 to JM Anderson, finally Oram gets the breakthrough! He's been coming around the wicket, pitched it outside off and no real movement, Anderson just pushed forward and a regulation outside edge goes through to Hopkins. 338/8
Daniel Vettori28.547712.671317001
126.5 to MS Panesar, and he has his revenge here, Panesar comes forward and pops a catch to silly point...very muted appeal, but Bucknor quickly raises the finger. Panesar can't believe the decision and it appears to have come straight off the pad. 364/10

BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
Ryan Sidebottom1744912.88806010
39.3 to DL Vettori, outside off, Vettori, who has been leaving similar ones so far today, feels for it, gets a thick outside edge and presents a straightforward catch to Andrew Strauss at first slip. 108/7
James Anderson21.384372.001126010
1.3 to AJ Redmond, what a corker from Anderson, on off stump and moves away late, beats Redmond's forward poke and rips out the off stump. Redmond wouldn't have been able to play that if he'd been told it was coming, great start for England and pressure on the New Zealand top order. 2/1
5.4 to BB McCullum, gone! another beauty from Anderson, turns McCullum inside-out as he tries to play to leg, probably should have tried to defend straighter, but Anderson has the big wicket and the off stump goes flying again. He's on fire. 14/2
22.1 to LRPL Taylor, gone! Anderson has his third, encourages Taylor to drive hard outside off stump and a thick outside edge flies to Pietersen at a deep-ish point...comfortable catch and an important wicket. 62/3
22.4 to DR Flynn, gone! that one is plumb, though. Nips back on off stump, Flynn is caught on the crease and Darrell Hair has no problems giving that out. Anderson on a roll again, New Zealand in the mire. 62/4
26.2 to JM How, gone! Anderson has five, his outstanding spell continues, a thin outside carries low through to Ambrose. Was a limp poke by How after all his hard work, Ambrose did well to come forward and gather it. 77/5
32.4 to JDP Oram, gone! six for Anderson, that's his career-best. Off-cutter outside off stump, Oram pushes limply and gets a thin edge through to Ambrose. New Zealand sink further. 93/6
46.3 to GJ Hopkins, full, started on leg, swinging slightly towards the off, trapped in the crease playing across the line and Darrell Hair has a simple decision. "Seven for Jimmy. that's a career best... in all cricket!" shouts Gnasher, triumphantly.. 123/10
Paul Collingwood20502.50101000
Stuart Broad631021.66311000
45.3 to KD Mills, full and wide, Mills shapes to drive, gets a thick edge and Pietersen at backward point takes a really good catch above his head. He made it look routine but the ball was travelling and he had to time his jump.. 123/8
45.5 to IE O'Brien, good length, pitched off, holds it's line and O'Brien's off stump goes walkies as he gets turned all square on. 123/9

BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
Ryan Sidebottom2476762.7911813000
13.1 to JM How, but no doubt about that one! A thick outside edge as the ball comes in across the seam and the ball carries to Cook at third slip. 33/2
57.3 to DR Flynn, sharp snap from Ambrose, stretching to his left to remove Flynn on 49 - going for his fifty, it was short and wide and he drove hard and took a very large outside edge. 169/5
65.5 to GJ Hopkins, got him this time! Building on the previous delivery, this one was a fraction straighter which was enough to take the outside edge, Hopkins pressing forward and getting the edge from the shoulder of the bat. 197/6
67.4 to DL Vettori, edged and gone! Pietersen takes the catch at gully, Vettori tempted into one which was swinging away from him and was wide and he chased it right into the hands with a scoop. 205/7
71.1 to KD Mills, over the wicket, Sidebottom forces across him, and gets the snick to first slip as it straightens and Mills has a drive, Strauss snapping it without hesitation. 221/8
71.5 to IE O'Brien, edged and caught by Collingwood at second slip, diving in front of Strauss at first, the batsman driving hard at it and scooping an outside edge which almost sits up as Collingwood tumbles across to his left, accepting gratefully. 225/9
James Anderson14.335523.79615100
49.6 to BB McCullum, got him! Just as he was looking comfortable, Anderson breaks through as McCullum gets a crashing inside edge on to middle stump, dragging it from outside off on the back foot. 152/4
72.3 to CS Martin, edged and gone! Anderson has finished the match, ending with nine wickets for the match, Martin flashing weakly at it away from his body and snicks low through to second slip where Collingwood takes a similar catch as the one which removed O'Brien. 232/10
Stuart Broad2147723.66959110
8.3 to AJ Redmond, Broad's celebrating now as he snaps up Redmond, driving forward to a swinging one and Ambrose snaps up a straightforward edge. 21/1
20.6 to LRPL Taylor, huge shout as Taylor moves out to look to play across the line, Broad knows he's struck with the swing as he raps him in front of middle and leg. 58/3
