Siddle to Guptill,
the Aussies have struck, but it is Guptill who has fallen to an indiscretion outside off. 144 kph, classing seamer's dismissal, set up by a driving length ball a yard or so outside off. Guptill was drawn into the drive, it wasn't full enough for him to reach the pitch, and hence when it moved away it took the edge. Straight into Haddin's mitts.
MJ Guptill c †Haddin b Siddle 13 (58m 34b 1x4 0x6) SR: 38.23
Starc to McCullum,
Starc has a first wicket, and he couldn't have got a more explosive pair of names on the dismissal than McCullum and Warner! Short of a length again, and that natural angle and seam brings it back into McCullum, who can't resist the urge to cut, nay shred, the short ball even if it isn't wide enough. He ends up carving it straight to Warner at point and he's on his way.
BB McCullum c Warner b Starc 34 (81m 51b 7x4 0x6) SR: 66.66
Lyon to Williamson,
and gone. This was almost inevitable with that shuffle and nudge routine. Williamson again gets too far across the stumps mindful of Lyon's smart spin and drift. This one breaks in and bounces extra towards the hips again, and since he is so far across, Williamson can't keep the nudge down, and works it onto the thigh. He pops it amiably towards Khawaja, who happily makes up for the miss.
KS Williamson c Khawaja b Lyon 19 (45m 33b 3x4 0x6) SR: 57.57
Pattinson to Taylor,
New Zealand, what are you doing! Taylor gives Pattinson his first Test scalp and stumps are in a mess. Simple three-card bluff this, after landing the last two back of a length, Pattison goes really full outside off now and asks Taylor if he fancies a swing five minutes before lunch. Taylor takes him on, but he didn't get into the best position for a square drive. The front foot was in the next zip code as he drove wide, wide away from his body. Inside-edged it onto the furniture.
LRPL Taylor b Pattinson 14 (33m 15b 3x4 0x6) SR: 93.33
Starc to Ryder,
didn't Jesse have enough for lunch? He's already on his way back for more. The very epitome of a hare-brained shot. Short, miles wide outside off and he doesn't bother getting across for the cut. Just reaches out and smashes it in the air, the balance all awry, straight to gully. We have seen some poor shots today, and by the looks of it there's more to come.
JD Ryder c Warner b Starc 6 (22m 19b 1x4 0x6) SR: 31.57
Lyon to Vettori,
Suicide! Vettori has ended his stay. The bowlers couldn't get him, but he's run himself out. He's gutted. He was thinking of the ton there, pushed a full ball straight to Hussey at mid-off and set off. That went too quickly to Hussey, who pounced on it and let rip in one fluid motion. The stumps were messed up before Vettori could dive in. He buries his head into the grass. He knows it. Need a crane to get him out of there. Tragedy!
DL Vettori run out 96 (186m 127b 9x4 0x6) SR: 75.59
Siddle to Young,
and that's the end of that. Young's come and gone in a flash. Siddle continues to hit that lovely length outside off and seam it away. This time Young jabs at it with hard hands and it has the legs to carry easily into Clarke's hands in the slips.
RA Young c Clarke b Siddle 2 (5m 5b 0x4 0x6) SR: 40.00
Lyon to Bracewell,
how well has Lyon bowled on his first trip to this ground? Bracewell is gone, playing for the spin against a deceptive over-spinner and that's an 18-ball duck. Lyon tossed this up outside off and it goes on straight to skim the outside edge, straight into first slip's hand.
DAJ Bracewell c Clarke b Lyon 0 (17m 18b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00
Lyon to Southee,
and that's the end of Southee's hand. He skates out again and looks to take Lyon downtown, but mishits the loft. Hussey comes in from long-on on gobbles it. And then he shines the ball as he sprints in to celebrate with his mates! Mr. Cricket!
TG Southee c Hussey b Lyon 17 (17m 12b 0x4 1x6) SR: 141.66
Lyon to Martin,
Martin's gone, but after he's got one run more in his latest innings than Don Bradman did. Classical offspinner's dismissal from a classical offspinner. Lyon tosses it up and spins it in sharply, drawing Marto forward on the push-drive and it easily finds the bat-pad gap.
CS Martin b Lyon 1 (15m 12b 0x4 0x6) SR: 8.33
