33.1

Malinga to Southee, no run, loud loud appeal! It was inswinging fuller length delivery, it pitches around middle stump and hits the pads, heading down the leg side

33.2

Malinga to Southee, FOUR, now a pacy yorker and another loud appeal for lbw, but the ball heads to the third-man boundary.. Was it bat, was it the boot first? It was the boot, and it would have been out.. Lucky escape for New Zealand

33.3

Malinga to Southee, no run, this time it's a low full toss on the leg stump, this time Southee is lucky that he gets an inside edge on to his pads.. The sound was loud and clear and it shut all the fielders up.. But how good is this over!

33.4

Malinga to Southee, 1 run, goes for a yorker, but this is outside off and it's driven past the non-striker, the mid-on fielder dives and stops it, and pushes it towards the mid-off fielder.. Easy single though

Eranga to Southee, OUT, another yorker! the batsman digs it out towards mid-on and sets off for a single, the fielder at mid-on - Thisara - aims at the non-striker's end, but misses. However, his throw goes on to hit the stumps at striker's end and guess what, Mills is short!

KD Mills run out 3 (21m 10b 0x4 0x6) SR: 30.00

New Zealand 134/9   TG Southee 12* (14b 1x4)
