COLLINGWOOD BANNED FOR FOUR MATCHES

England's One Day captain Paul Collingwood has been banned for the next four games that England play after his shocking captaincy yesterday. He slowed the over rate down and then sent Grant Elliott walking after allowing Pieterson to run him out when he had been tripped over by Ryan Sidebottom and was still on the ground and the umpires asked if he wanted to let Elliott stay on knowing it was bad sportsmanship.

Collingwood will miss the next ODI against New Zealand. England's one off ODI against Scotland the only Twenty20 between England and South Africa and the first ODI of seven against South Africa. Peiterson is thought to be the stand in captain.

NORTHAMPTONSHIRE SNEAK IT IN THE LAST OVER

Teams posted totals of 200 plus all round the country today however Glamorgan just missed out on making the list when they collapsed in the last 2 overs. The dragons were well set for victory provided they didn't loose a wicket and played a few slog type shots but that would be an easy task with Hercshelle Gibbs in on 98. But the task proved to be a bit harder as Van der Wath caught Gibbs on the boundary and then Louw came in and took two wickets in the last over leaving Glamorgan in dispair.

U.O.W.I.V.C XI collapsed and only posted a mere 126 all out at a very slow run rate. There was no punch in the U.O.W.I.V.C XI's innings except for a nice 43 scored by familiar face Danish Ramdin.


New Zealand Claim Absolute Thriller

After posting a mere 182 all out the kiwi's faught back hard and managed to bowl England all out for 160. Young Tim Southee took 4 wickets for just 38 runs out of his 10 overs and South African Grant Elliot shined with the bat and ball by scoring the only half century of the match and bowling 2-9 of 5 overs. After this great performance and a great effort at Edgbaston this makes Elliott a candidate for Player of the Week.

Both teams will go to the Oval knowing it is a must win match.  


NEW ZEALAND SET ENGLAND AN EASY TARGET

New Zealand posted a poor total of 182 all out against England in Bristol today. The Kiwi's big players weren't up to the task today with players like Taylor, How (Pictured) and McCullum all going out early. With the help of Grant Elliot and Kyle Mills New Zealand rebuilt their devastating innings after being 110/7. Grant Elliot posted a quiet and slow 56 whilst Mills beat his ODI high score and slogged his way 47 however missed out on his maiden fifty by being caught on the last ball of the innings.
