View dismissal MJ Guptill c Hildreth b Trego 9 15 10 1 0 90.00
3.1 Smart thinking from Somerset, not that smart by Guptill. They saw him drive well in the last over, brought the third man up and sent long-on back. Trego bowled straight, Guptill couldn't stop himself going for the lofted drive, and found out the long-on to perfection. Guptill is stunned, but he should have known better 14/3
View dismissal JHK Adams lbw b Trego 0 8 4 0 0 0.00
1.6 Adams is not pegged in the crease, and flicks across the line of a straight delivery. The umpire's finger shoot sup immediately. Adams doesn't look pleased. Height didn't seem an issue to me. The line is good too. Pitches outside off, hits him in front of middle, would have taken out leg 8/1
View dismissal RJ Quiney lbw b Thomas 4 3 4 1 0 100.00
2.5 and another left-hand batsman is gone lbw to the round-the-stumps angle. This is short of a length, Quiney pulls across its line, the ball seems to have stayed a touch low. Pitched just outside off, hits him in front of middle and off, and would have taken top of middle 14/2
L Vincent not out 47 65 47 3 1 100.00
View dismissal GJ Hopkins*† run out (Suppiah) 22 23 22 2 0 100.00
10.1 from Kartik, short of a length, bunted into the on side, he thinks he has hit it softly enough, and charges back for the second. Arul Suppiah charges in from deep midiwcket, picks up and throws in one motion, goes at the end of Hopkins, who struck the ball and is thus slower, and hits the stumps direct. The full-length dive is not good enough. Good work, Arul 63/4
View dismissal C Munro b Waller 6 6 8 1 0 75.00
11.6 Gone. Not a big surprise really. He has moved around all over the place, Waller has stayed straight, and this time Munro pushes forward, then rocks back and misses a length ball. Off stump gone. Was a matter of sooner or later 70/5
View dismissal KD Mills b van der Merwe 10 15 15 0 0 66.66
16.3 yorker on the base of leg, and van der Merwe has squeezed through this time. Mills has been looking to give himself room, but van der Merwe has provided him neither space nor length 97/6
View dismissal RM Hira c Hildreth b Thomas 2 5 3 0 0 66.66
17.3 Hira comes down the track and drives well, but unfortunately straight down mid-off's throat. Well done, Thomas for having the mid-off in the circle in the first place 104/7

View dismissal CR Jones c JHK Adams b Mills 16 9 11 3 0 145.45
2.4 Jimmy Adams is some sort of electric fence at point. Another New Zealand side stays alive through its fielding. This is cut away fiercely, but Adams has dived to his unnatural side to pouch this 22/1
View dismissal PD Trego c Guptill b Bates 19 35 24 2 0 79.16
9.1 and Bates has struck with his first ball back. Trego gives him the charge, makes room, and smashes this cover-drive, smack off the middle of the bat, but straight to Guptill at short extra cover. Lovely catch. Too close for comfort, was Guptill, when batsmen connect with their drives 54/3
View dismissal RE van der Merwe c Mills b Hira 18 21 16 2 0 112.50
8.1 One of those trademark van der Merwe shots where he is looking at fine leg and hits to third man. Gives this an almighty thwack, and the outside edge lobs to short third. Auckland still alive, only just 52/2
View dismissal JC Hildreth run out (Munro/†Hopkins) 34 46 34 2 0 100.00
19.5 from Bates, low full toss, driven to deep cover, they take risking the new batsman by going for the second here. The throw is not accurate but is quick enough to catch him short. Hildreth has played a good hand, but Somerset needs one more run here 125/6
View dismissal NRD Compton c †Hopkins b Bates 0 1 1 0 0 0.00
9.2 Bates has opened the gates here! Lovely offcutter here. Short of a length, middle and leg, and seams a way a touch. Compton wants to open the face on it, the edge is taken, and Bates is on a hat-trick 54/4
View dismissal AV Suppiah c Hira b Martin 3 7 8 0 0 37.50
11.5 Tom Martin strikes too. Auckland's aces are falling right here. Suppiah plays the big pull, this seems to be the slower ball, and the massive top edge is safely pouched in the mid-on region 64/5
