England vs New Zealand, 1st ODI, New Zealand tour of England 2013

Commentary

New Zealand won by 5 wkts | England Vs New Zealand Live Score, 1st ODI

That's all we have for you today. More action coming up tomorrow as the warm-up games for the Champions trophy get underway. Do join us for that. Cheers and goodbye for now.
Unsurprisingly, Martin Guptill is the Man of the Match.
Guptill was undoubtedly the star of the chase. His composed ton has helped New Zealand maintain their clean record at Lord's. They've played 3 ODIs here and won all of them. The tone was set for the chase by Ross Taylor and Guptill. The duo tackled an in-form Swann well. Guptill remained calm even when a couple of wickets fell in succession and did well to carry his bat through the innings.
End of over 47, 8 runs (. . 4b . 4 )
NZ: 235/5
Martin Guptill - 103(123) This over: 4 runs
James Franklin - 16(22) This over: 0 runs
Tim Bresnan
(9.5 - 1 - 36 - 0)
46.5 Tim Bresnan to Martin Guptill 4
FOUR, Guptill finishes it in style. He pulls a shortish delivery off his hips to the deep square leg fence. He gets to his 3rd ODI ton with that. More importantly he has helped New Zealand go 1-0 up in the series.
100 runs for Martin Guptill
46.4 Tim Bresnan to Martin Guptill 0
no run, good length and straight, Guptill blocks it well
46.3 Tim Bresnan to Martin Guptill 4b
byes, FOUR, well this is drama. Buttle has let this one go through between his legs. It was outside off and Guptill missed a dab outside off. Guptill on 99 with 1 to win
46.2 Tim Bresnan to Martin Guptill 0
no run, This one was jagging back in from a good length, the bat and pad were very close to each other but replays show it was bat first. Could have been just a tactical review to put more pressure on Guptill, on 99
England are reviewing an LBW call now. Was it bat first or pad first? Looks like the former first.
Cook has a lot of men inside the circle
46.1 Tim Bresnan to Martin Guptill 0
no run, good length and outside off, Guptill blocks it to point
Tim Bresnan [9.0-1-32-0] is back into the attack
Guptillon strike on 99 now.
End of over 46, 1 runs (1 . . . . . . )
NZ: 227/5
James Franklin - 16(22) This over: 0 runs
Martin Guptill - 99(118) This over: 1 runs
Chris Woakes
(6.1 - 0 - 45 - 0)
45.6 Chris Woakes to James Franklin 0
no run, full and outside off, Franklin defends it to cover.
45.5 Chris Woakes to James Franklin 0
no run, good length and outside off, Franklin shoulders arms. The intention is obviously to give Guptill an easy route to his 100
45.4 Chris Woakes to James Franklin 0
no run, full again, Franklin plays it straight to mid off
