van der Merwe to Hopkins, no run, turn and bounce.. Hopkins looks to cut it, and is beaten square. Even the keeper can't make a clean collection

Auckland 22/3   GJ Hopkins 2* (6b)
5.2

Trego to Hopkins, no run, slower ball, it has the batsman foxed, and he pulls entirely out of the shot. Would have hit the fifth stump, so a brave leave

5.3

Trego to Hopkins, 3 leg byes, wide down the leg side, and it swings after passing the batsman, as it would in England. A drive from Snell can't save the extras

Auckland 26/3   GJ Hopkins 2* (8b)

Kartik to Hopkins, 1 run, slower through the air, he has to wait and wait before turning it to short fine. Vincent has to dve full length to get in

Auckland 46/3   GJ Hopkins 7* (14b)
8.1

Kartik to Hopkins, 1 run, Hopkins makes room Kartik fires this in, he punches it square for a single

8.4

Kartik to Hopkins, FOUR, lovely shot, makes room, chips this length ball over extra cover. Always good to watch batsmen going over extra cover. You can't slog there

Waller to Hopkins, 1 run, full on the pads, worked away for a single

9.6

Waller to Hopkins, 1 run, another slider, Hopkins recovers just in time to cut this from in front of leg for a single

10.1

Kartik to Hopkins, 1 run, OUT, 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

GJ Hopkins run out 22 (23m 22b 2x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

Auckland 63/4   GJ Hopkins 22 (22b 2x4)
