View dismissal AJ Finch b Southee 14 10 7 1 1 200.00
2.2 86.3 mph, Southee draws first blood, the crowd erupts! He took the risk of pitching it up again just outside off, swung it in a bit and the ball went through the drive Finch unleashed. Off stump knocked over, Southee pumps his fists and is mobbed by his team-mates 30/1
View dismissal DA Warner lbw b Southee 34 58 42 2 1 80.95
13.1 87.6 mph, two in two for NZ, Southee gets Warner lbw but he wants a review! This one swung into the batsman to cram him up as the ball probably headed towards middle leg, Warner went on is toes to defend as the ball hit just above the knee roll after pitching on leg. It's hitting the stumps, with umpire's call so Warner has to go! 80/3
View dismissal SR Watson c Southee b Vettori 23 44 30 2 0 76.66
12.6 60.7 mph, Watson has holed out! It was a innocuous short ball on the stumps, Watson went back in the crease and pulled it to the leg side where Southee went to his right to complete an easy catch at deep midwicket 80/2
View dismissal MJ Clarke* c Williamson b Boult 12 37 18 1 0 66.66
19.6 81.3 mph, oh my, Clarke has given it away, Boult gets his third! He gave Clarke room on the off side, Clarke swung his arms uppishly and gave a straightforward catch to Williamson at short cover 104/7
View dismissal SPD Smith c †Ronchi b Vettori 4 17 11 0 0 36.36
16.3 59.7 mph, caught behind, one more for Vettori! It was a bit flatter outside off, Smith pushed at it towards the off side and the ball went straight into Ronchi's gloves after a thick outside edge 95/4
View dismissal GJ Maxwell b Boult 1 4 3 0 0 33.33
17.2 86.5 mph, he's chopped it on, Australia crumbling here! The ball was angling away from Maxwell from outside the off stump, he looked to force it through the off side without any footwork and get an edge to disturb his stumps 96/5
View dismissal MR Marsh b Boult 0 3 2 0 0 0.00
17.4 88.0 mph, one more, what's going on?! Marsh also drags it on and goes for a duck! This back of length delivery was seaming away from the batsman, he went to the back foot to defend on the off side but played the wrong line and got an edge onto his stumps. The crowd is roaring! 97/6
View dismissal BJ Haddin c sub (TWM Latham) b Anderson 43 70 41 4 2 104.87
32.2 76.1 mph, goes this time, gives a catch to short third man! Anderson pitched it shorter this time, Haddin went through the shot little early with a drive and got a thick edge for short third man. The last man falls 151/10
View dismissal MG Johnson c Williamson b Boult 1 6 7 0 0 14.28
21.3 87.2 mph, that's a wonderful catch, one more falls! Johnson made room for the full delivery just outside off, drove it in the air and Williamson was there again, this time to dive to his right to grab it with both hands 106/8
View dismissal MA Starc b Boult 0 2 3 0 0 0.00
21.6 89.3 mph, missing - the middle stump's gone missing! What a beaut there from Boult - it pitched right on middle stump on length, looked like it was angling in, which Starc played for, but it held its line after pitching and knocked over only the middle stump. The crowd is loving it 106/9

  New Zealand innings (target: 152 runs from 50 overs) R B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal MJ Guptill c Cummins b Starc 11 14 1 1 78.57
3.5 91.2 mph, taken at mid off, Guptill's gone! It was pitched up again, Guptill merely chipped it down the ground with a drive, maybe looking to clear mid off, but Cummins went to his right to complete a good catch 40/1
View dismissal BB McCullum* c Starc b Cummins 50 24 7 3 208.33
7.4 86.5 mph, he gets it off the middle but finds the man at mid-off! End of a superb innings by Baz, played, I am sure, with a badly hurting left hand. He gave himself room and looked to clear this over the off side, but just did not get the elevation. Easy catch for the fielder. But yet again, he has set New Zealand on the road to victory with a massive thrust up the order 78/2
KS Williamson not out 45 42 5 1 107.14
View dismissal LRPL Taylor b Starc 1 2 0 0 50.00
8.1 90.1 mph, knocks him over, there goes the off stump! Taylor tried a cross-batted shot for the length delivery just around off, the ball swung in and went right through the gate to rattle the off stump. The players head off for what was supposed to be innings break at this time 79/3
View dismissal GD Elliott b Starc 0 1 0 0 0.00
8.2 92.8 mph, middle stump's gone, first ball! Elliott left a big gap between bat and pad for the straight delivery that pitched around off and came in to rattle middle stump, he didn't have much footwork either and pushed only tentatively at the ball. Happens on the first ball 79/4
View dismissal CJ Anderson c Cummins b Maxwell 26 42 2 1 61.90
19.4 52.8 mph, he slogs and he gives a catch! It was a length delivery just outside off, Anderson went down on a knee for the slog sweep and slammed it straight to mid on where Cummins took a good, low catch. They are checking for the catch now, Anderson waiting at the boundary. Cummins was down on his knees as the ball was dipping on him, replays show a part of the ball was out of his hands and they aren't clear enough to say if the ball hit the ground for sure or not. Given out finally, Anderson walks back again 131/5
View dismissal L Ronchi c †Haddin b Starc 6 7 0 1 85.71
20.6 87.8 mph, peach of a delivery from Starc and that deserves a wicket! Nasty bouncer around middle stump, it was quick, and by the time Ronchi could sway out of the line by bending back like Keanu Reaves, the ball took some glove on the way 139/6
View dismissal DL Vettori c Warner b Cummins 2 3 0 0 66.66
21.5 89.1 mph, wicket off a full toss, chipped straight to mid on! Innocuous and low full toss on the pads, Vettori hangs his head down after handing a straightforward catch to mid on 145/7
View dismissal AF Milne b Starc 0 2 0 0 0.00
22.3 88.7 mph, Starc pumps the air, he's hit the stumps! Full delivery on middle, Milne exposed his stumps a bit, went for the drive and missed it completely 146/8
View dismissal TG Southee b Starc 0 1 0 0 0.00
22.4 89.9 mph, GONE, Starc's on fire! He knows how to bowl those yorkers, doesn't he! Targets the off stump, Southee tries to put it away on the leg side but it's too quick at 150kmh and rattles the stumps 146/9
