Kulasekara to Guptill, FOUR, fuller ball and Guptill has sent that to the long-on boundary with a clean bat swing, moving forward, getting under the ball and lofting it

New Zealand 10/0   MJ Guptill 6* (9b 1x4)   KMDN Kulasekara 1.2-0-7-0

Kulasekara to Guptill, FOUR, a deft late cut this time, placed fine of the fielder at short third man

New Zealand 16/0   MJ Guptill 12* (11b 2x4)   KMDN Kulasekara 1.4-0-13-0

Malinga to Guptill, FOUR, length ball on the pads, Guptill gets inside the line by moving towards off stump and glances the ball off his pads to the square leg boundary

New Zealand 21/0   MJ Guptill 17* (14b 3x4)   SL Malinga 0.1-0-4-0

Malinga to Nicol, FOUR, Nicol moves across his crease to chip a slower ball in the air but past the fielder at short fine leg, New Zealand are getting a move on here

New Zealand 26/0   RJ Nicol 6* (8b 1x4)   SL Malinga 1-0-9-0

BAW Mendis to Guptill, FOUR, short ball outside off stump to end the over, Guptill sends it racing to the point boundary with a cut off the back foot. Not a good start from Mendis, 10 runs off that over. Wonder if he's feeling that side strain.

New Zealand 36/0   MJ Guptill 27* (21b 4x4)   BAW Mendis 1-0-10-0

Malinga to Guptill, FOUR, stand and deliver stuff, Guptill lines up a short of a length ball and tees off on the front foot, hitting the ball over the bowler's head with a horizontal bat

New Zealand 41/0   MJ Guptill 31* (24b 5x4)   SL Malinga 1.4-0-14-0

Mathews to Guptill, FOUR, short of a length outside off, Guptill slashes at it and gets a thick outside edge towards third man, Malinga is on the boundary and he runs to his right and misses the ball. The ball spun past him and he was clutching at air. Horribly dozy effort

New Zealand 48/0   MJ Guptill 37* (27b 6x4)   AD Mathews 1.2-0-7-0

Mathews to Nicol, FOUR, full ball outside off stump, Nicol thumps it from his crease and he's hit it hard enough to beat the fielder at long off

New Zealand 55/0   RJ Nicol 15* (14b 2x4)   AD Mathews 2-0-14-0

BAW Mendis to Nicol, FOUR, superb shot, Nicol moves forward and swings across the line, slapping the ball into the gap on the midwicket boundary. The ball is doing very little for Ajantha Mendis

New Zealand 86/1   RJ Nicol 30* (23b 3x4 1x6)   BAW Mendis 1.3-0-16-0

Malinga to Taylor, FOUR, too full and too much on leg stump, Taylor glances the ball off the pads with almost no backlift, using the pace to find the fine leg boundary

New Zealand 148/3   LRPL Taylor 18* (12b 1x4)   SL Malinga 2.5-0-23-0

Kulasekara to Taylor, FOUR, the yorker outside off stump, Taylor jams his bat down on it and squeezes it to the third man boundary

New Zealand 154/3   LRPL Taylor 23* (14b 2x4)   KMDN Kulasekara 2.1-0-19-0

Kulasekara to Oram, FOUR, Oram swings hard at a low full toss, slicing the ball high over the bowler's head towards the boundary. Thisara Perera ran from long on and dived but couldn't reach the ball

New Zealand 159/4   JDP Oram 6* (4b 1x4)   KMDN Kulasekara 2.4-0-24-1

Kulasekara to Franklin, FOUR, a rubbish full toss and Franklin has swung hard enough to send the ball over the bowler's head for a one-bounce four

New Zealand 170/6   JEC Franklin 6* (3b 1x4)   KMDN Kulasekara 3.2-0-29-2
