Blackcaps v England 1st ODI at Hamilton

England    258 all out

Blackcaps 259 for 7 wickets

Autograph Signings will take place through to the 3rd Test at Eden Park, marking the England tour of New Zealand.

On Sunday at the Seddon Park ground, despite the England top order batsmen, Ian Bell, Jonathon Trott and Joe Root making some useful scores, the Tourists were defeated by 3 wickets. This was their second loss at the Park in seven days.

The Blackcaps put the England side in to bat and having achieved a solid position of 190 for 3 through 40 overs, England lost 7 all important wickets for just 68 runs in the last ten overs, McClenaghan, Franklin and Mills doing most of the damage. McCallum performed well in the field responsible for the wickets of Bell, Woakes and Stuart Broad.

The Blackcaps finding themselves on 155 for 5, assisted by Kane Williamson’s 74 runs, hit back when McCallum (90 not out) scored 69 off 61 deliveries, whilst Martin Guptill having returned to the pavilion injured in the sixth over was sufficiently recovered to hit four 4’s and a six securing victory for the Blackcaps with 2 matches left in the series.

James Anderson (Lancs) rested since the 4th Test at Napur in December, made history with the last ball of his first over by bowling BJ Watling with  an inswinger, it was his 529th International wicket, Ian Botham had held the record of 528 wickets.

The ball used to bowl James Anderson into the record books will make an interesting item of Cricket Memorabilia
