Singh to Taylor, FOUR, almost caught at square-leg. It held its line on the leg and middle line, Taylor was getting too much across, fell over a touch, got his bat around the front pad and some how manages to wrist it past the lunging Yusuf Pathan

New Zealand 9/2   LRPL Taylor 5* (3b 1x4)   RP Singh 1.1-1-4-0

Singh to Taylor, FOUR, edged but it falls short of Sachin at first slip. Another full delivery angling away, Taylor pushes at it and nicks it to the left of the diving SRT who couldn't stop it from running away to the boundary

New Zealand 13/2   LRPL Taylor 9* (8b 2x4)   RP Singh 2-1-8-0

Nehra to Guptill, FOUR, Wallop! Lovely pull from the happy hooker. Guptill rocked back to pull the short delivery through wide midwicket region

New Zealand 23/3   MJ Guptill 8* (10b 1x4)   A Nehra 3.1-0-9-2

Sharma to Guptill, FOUR, overpitched on the middle, Guptill leans forward to ease it past the diving mid-on fielder.

New Zealand 44/3   MJ Guptill 18* (34b 2x4)   I Sharma 2.1-1-9-0

Sharma to Guptill, FOUR, Edged but well clear of the lone slip fielder in Tendulkar. It straightened outside off stump, off the good length, stabbed off the outer edge and it runs down to the boundary.

New Zealand 48/3   MJ Guptill 22* (37b 3x4)   I Sharma 2.4-1-13-0

Harbhajan Singh to Oram, FOUR, pushes it through a tad quicker, full and down the leg side, glanced away to the fine-leg boundary

New Zealand 72/5   JDP Oram 11* (17b 1x4)   Harbhajan Singh 2.2-0-11-0

Harbhajan Singh to Oram, FOUR, skips down the track, reaches out to chip it over mid-on ... clears the fielder comfortably

New Zealand 98/5   JDP Oram 23* (43b 2x4)   Harbhajan Singh 5.4-0-27-0

Sharma to Vettori, FOUR, that's overpitched, and he uses his wrists to fetch it from outside off to beat mid-on - almost a whip - he uses his wrists to good effect

New Zealand 111/6   DL Vettori 7* (9b 1x4)   I Sharma 6.3-2-19-1

Nehra to Bond, FOUR, Wallop! It was full and outside off and it has been thrashed over cover

New Zealand 147/9   SE Bond 5* (7b 1x4)   A Nehra 8-0-24-2
