  Australia 1st innings R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal SR Watson c Arnel b Southee 12 33 25 3 0 48.00
7.4 the miscued pull! Sudden rush of blood there, Southee pitched it on a good length outside off and Watson tried to pull it over midwicket, hit the bottom of the bat and the ball looped towards Arnel at mid-on who fell forward to take the catch 25/1
View dismissal SM Katich c Watling b Vettori 88 236 171 11 0 51.46
56.4 Katich falls just before tea! He shuffle across his stumps yet again and tries to clip it to the on side, but the ball goes straight off the bat and goes to Watling at forward short leg, no doubts about that at all 180/5
View dismissal RT Ponting* run out (Vettori) 22 62 47 4 0 46.80
23.3 from Patel, direct hit! Dan sets a fine example, Ponting pushes a full delivery down to mid-off but he hits it to Vettori's left, picks it up and fires a flat throw at the stumps at the bowler's end, they all know they've got him and the third umpire takes a look 63/2
View dismissal MEK Hussey c †McCullum b Southee 22 65 48 5 0 45.83
39.2 we saw it coming! Southee had beaten Hussey just a short while back outside the off stump, this time he pitches it up outside off and draws Hussey to drive forward, takes the edge which was loud and clear, Rauf confirms it 129/3
View dismissal MJ Clarke c Southee b Patel 28 50 33 4 0 84.84
49.3 yet another Australian gives his wicket away! Flighted on the off stump, Clarke chips down the track but doesn't loft with any conviction at all, Southee's there at long-on and he runs forward and takes it comfortably, Clarke fell for the trap 172/4
View dismissal MJ North lbw b Southee 9 66 47 1 0 19.14
67.1 North is referring this, the ball lands on middle and goes through with the line, North plays all around it and is hit flush on the pad bang in front of middle, looked obvious to us and Asad Rauf, North challenges it but in the end it's a referral used up by Australia 200/8
View dismissal BJ Haddin c & b Southee 12 32 31 2 0 38.70
65.6 another soft dismissal and New Zealand are taking them all, Haddin shapes to punch it through the off side but checks his shot and ends up tamely tapping it back to the bowler, that fielder at silly mid-off may have played on his mind 199/6
View dismissal MG Johnson c McIntosh b Vettori 0 3 3 0 0 0.00
66.6 New Zealand are chipping away, Vettori bowls it flatter on the off stump, Johnson gets forward and offers a bat-pad catch to McIntosh at silly point who takes it inches off the turf, Aleem Dar sends him on his way immediately 200/7
NM Hauritz not out 12 32 21 2 0 57.14
View dismissal RJ Harris lbw b Vettori 10 20 17 2 0 58.82
72.2 Vettori strikes, the Australian collapse continues, the arm ball does the job, Harris is hit on the front foot as he looks to whip it square, in front of middle and leg, Harris is gone 217/9
View dismissal DE Bollinger b Vettori 4 9 6 0 0 66.66
74.3 the bails are down and the innings is over, Vettori bowls this one quicker and flatter, the ball clips the pad and clips the stumps as Bollinger gets forward to defend, leaves a big gap between pad and bat 231/10

  New Zealand 1st innings R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal TG McIntosh b Bollinger 4 4 6 1 0 66.66
0.6 McIntosh had no idea where his off stump was! Bollinger lands it on a fullish length just outside off and gets it to nip back in, McIntosh shoulders arms but looks back to see his off stump pegged back, Bollinger kisses the Australian crest and not the VB sponsor logo! 4/1
View dismissal BJ Watling b Bollinger 46 139 103 5 0 44.66
32.1 Bollinger has got the breakthrough! Played on! Looks to play his punch shot through the covers, but it is too close to him and sort of hand cuffs him, taking the inside edge onto top of leg stump 114/3
View dismissal MS Sinclair b Johnson 11 70 53 1 0 20.75
18.5 this is smart bowling, follows that bouncer with an off-stump yorker, swinging in, and Sinclair is clearly not expecting it as it squeezes under his bat before it comes down. Too good for Sinclair 30/2
View dismissal LRPL Taylor c †Haddin b Bollinger 138 180 104 19 4 132.69
57.6 review, Taylor goes for the boundary with the field up, goes for the pull shot, the ball is too full, Aussies appeal for a bottom edge, Asad Rauf doesn't move. Hot spot shows a faint tickle as the ball passes the bat, and Rauf overturns his decision 236/8
View dismissal MJ Guptill c Ponting b Harris 4 29 21 0 0 19.04
38.4 what a time to get a wicket, three minutes before lunch! softish dismissal, fends at a back-of-a-length delivery, away from his body, edges it at a comfortable height to second slip 143/4
View dismissal DL Vettori* c †Haddin b Harris 15 15 12 3 0 125.00
42.2 gone, loose shot again, and Australia are right back in! Straight delivery really, not wide enough to be playing the cover drive, ends up playing outside the line and gets an inside edge through to Haddin 167/5
View dismissal BB McCullum c Ponting b Johnson 5 31 26 1 0 19.23
50.3 another soft dismissal, poor cricket by McCullum, straight delivery, going with the angle, McCullum drives hard, gets an edge, and Ponting takes it easily at second slip 193/6
View dismissal JS Patel c Ponting b Johnson 7 32 25 1 0 28.00
56.6 and that's the problem with tailenders when they get confident, they play shots they shouldn't, as Patel goes chasing this wide delivery without moving his feet and Ponting takes a nice catch to his right at second slip 234/7
TG Southee not out 22 31 15 2 1 146.66
View dismissal BJ Arnel c †Haddin b Johnson 7 20 18 1 0 38.88
62.6 Johnson finally gets his way, it pitches around off, Arnell hangs his bat to this one, and the angle takes the edge, end of an important little partnership 263/9
View dismissal CS Martin b Harris 0 2 2 0 0 0.00
63.3 too good for Martin, duck No. 28! Full and straight, Martin stays outside the line, gets an inside edge and is bowled 264/10

32.4 Caught! Southee dropped short outside off, Watson pulls hard, gets a top edge that flies straight out to the man posted for the pull shot at deep forward square and Watling camped under it to take the simplest of catches. An error from Watson. He fell into the trap. 85/1
View dismissal SM Katich c †McCullum b Arnel 106 341 279 12 0 37.99
91.6 Caught behind! Almost a carbon copy of Hussey's. Angled in from around the wicket, good length, just straightens off the seam a fraction, Katich pushes at it from the crease and feathers an edge through to McCullum behind. Two big wickets to Arnel. New Zealand back in the game. 247/4
View dismissal RT Ponting* c Watling b Southee 6 8 4 0 1 150.00
34.2 Caught! Good length delivery on leg stump, Ponting clips it in the air straight to the short leg in place and Watling holds onto a very sharp catch! Not often Ponting gets caught at short leg. Good captaincy, great catch. 91/2

89.3 Caught behind! Angled in from around the wicket, good length, just seaming away, Hussey caught on the crease, pushed at it in hope rather than with intent, got a thin edge and McCullum takes a simle catch. The tea break has broke the wicket New Zealand so desperately needed. 246/3

127.6 LBW! Good length, seaming back, Clarke tries to drive gets hit on the pad half forward, big appeal, Aleem Dar gives it out. Clarke refers it upstairs. It looks to have hit him outside the line but Virtual says on-field call stands?! Confusing decision under the DRS 389/5
View dismissal MJ North c †McCullum b Vettori 90 193 135 16 1 66.66
136.1 Caught down legside! Vettori around the wicket bowls one well outside leg, North tries to paddle sweep fine, gets it off the face but straight into McCullum's waiting gloves. Good catch, North walks. Unlucky dismissal. It was a classy 90 from North. 443/6
View dismissal BJ Haddin b Patel 48 52 40 4 3 120.00
141.1 Bowled him! Tossed up well outside off, Haddin gets down on one knee to slog sweep over midwicket, it rips back out of the rough, through the gate, and hits off stump! What a delivery. Nathan Hauritz wouldn't have minded seeing that despite the fact his wicketkeeper is out. 453/8

13.2 Bowled him! Johnson delivers a good length angling in to middle and off, 150kph, McIntosh caught on the crease, leaves a gap between bat and pad and the ball zips through and cannons into middle and off. Johnson grabs the first in typical fashion. Raw pace, bails flying. 40/1

47.5 LBW! Hauritz delivers very full drifting in to off stump, Vettori sweeps, he gets hit on the pad, his bat is close it flies to slip and is caught. Big appeal, Asad Rauf gives it out lbw! Daniel Vettori refers it hoping he got outside the line. After what seams an eternity, virtual says part of the ball hit in line and it was hitting off stump flush. Very similar to Clarke's lbw this morning. Vettori has to go. 152/5
