View dismissal G Gambhir b O'Brien 6 8 7 1 0 85.71
1.6 Gambhir's gone, middle stump's on the ground, a bit short again from O'Brien, Gambhir was looking to clobber him over midwicket, the ball doesn't bounce as much as he expects and it hits the top of middle 25/1
View dismissal V Sehwag b O'Brien 26 14 10 0 4 260.00
3.1 Sehwag's gone, O'Brien's on a hat-trick now, big wicket for New Zealand, Sehwag eyes the short square boundary at midwicket again, misses the ball and it crashes into legstump, O'Brien is over the moon and why not 32/2

View dismissal RG Sharma c †BB McCullum b Butler 7 9 7 0 1 100.00
5.2 Rohit's gone, tries to play across the line, gets a leading edge which balloons in the air, Brendon McCullum calls for the catch, he has plenty of time to position himself to take a comfortable catch near gully 54/3
View dismissal Yuvraj Singh lbw b Vettori 1 4 3 0 0 33.33
6.2 Yuvraj's gone! another big blow, New Zealand have the edge now, a quicker arm ball from Vettori, Yuvraj goes for the sweep, misses and is rapped in front on middle 56/4
View dismissal MS Dhoni*† b Butler 2 5 6 0 0 33.33
7.5 Dhoni's bowled! India are in trouble here, a hint of inward movement from a back of a length ball, Dhoni jumped and tried to defend but that kept lower than he expected and his offstump is rocked back 61/5
View dismissal YK Pathan c Oram b NL McCullum 20 7 8 0 3 250.00
9.4 Yusuf's goes, Jacob Oram does a repeat of Adam Voges' fantastic catch to get rid off Brendon McCullum in Sydney, it was wide outside off and fullish, Yusuf powered that to long-on, it rocketed towards the boundary but Oram manages to catch it just inside the boundary rope, he was going to go across, so he tossed the ball in the air, came back into the field of play, steadied himself and completed the ctach 82/6
View dismissal IK Pathan c NL McCullum b Ryder 12 13 14 1 0 85.71
13.3 that's the end of Irfan, soft dismissal, Irfan opened the face of the bat to run it down to third man, gets too much off the ball and it flies at a nice, catchable height to Nathan McCullum at backward point 101/7
View dismissal Harbhajan Singh b Southee 21 25 22 2 0 95.45
19.6 bowled him, Harbhajan tries a cute paddle again but he's undone by an on-target yorker from Southee, middle stump is left lying on the ground 162/8
