12.02pm - NZ 232 (72.3 overs) - WICKET! Oram smashes Anderson for a massive six but he gives Martin the strike and he edges his second ball to Collingwood at slip. Jimmy takes the wicket and he leads England off after finishing with nine in the match. IT'S ALL OVER - ENGLAND WIN BY AN INNINGS AND NINE RUNS.

pietervanrijn - you were spot on and you have won a lanyard. E-mail with your postal details. See you tomorrow for all the fallout from the Test.


Noon - NZ 225-9 (72 overs) - WICKETS! Time to enjoy a nice Sunday roast before the tennis starts as Kyle Mills joins the procession. Angled across him and the Kiwi number nine edges to Andrew Strauss at first slip. Almost a carbon copy four balls later as Iain O'Brien drives and Paul Collingwood takes the catch at second slip. Ryan's 6-67 is his fifth five-wicket haul in his last 13 Tests.

11.45am - NZ 216-7 (70 overs) - WICKET! Daniel Vettori chases a Sidebottom outswinger and his uppish drive goes straight to Kevin Pietersen in the gully. Oram back cuts for four and drives with great alacrity to the mid-off fence as he gives Broad some stick. So who do you think will be man of the series?

11.30am - NZ 205-6 (67 overs) - WICKET! Hopkins departs as Sidebottom generates some extra bounce and a genuine outside edge off the shoulder of the bat is taken by Tim Ambrose. Oram is up for some entertainment, pulling Broad for four and a six.

awilycoyote - Alex Tudor is still playing with Essex but has had more leg injuries than Douglas Bader in his career.

11.15am - NZ 187-5 (64 overs) - Ten runs off the opening four overs. Broad and Sidebottom floating up deliveries on a full length, trying to induce Gareth Hopkins into the drive but the keeper makes no mistake as he finds the cover fence off the left-armer. There are a selection of men dressed as bumble bees in the crowd, perhaps Wasps fans?

11am - A very healthy crowd in the ground and England need five more wickets. Will Cowers be home to watch Austria v Croatia, well maybe? The new ball due in 20 overs but it's Stuart Broad to open up with the old one.

10.45am - WE ARE GIVING AWAY A YAHOO! LANYARD TODAY !! What's a lanyard, you say, well it's the ultimate in neck accessory, no need to ever lose your passport ever again. Just tell me how many balls the "walking wicket" Chris Martin will face today.

10.30am - It's a beautiful morning in Nottingham and England are on the verge of securing the series. Cowers has taken a wheelbarrow full of anadin and is ready to run you through proceedings.
