Finn to Nicol, 1 run, length ball on the stumps, Nicol gets a thin edge on a leg glance, which then comes off the pad towards backward square as Finn appeals for lbw


Finn to Guptill, no run, on a length outside off, pushed towards point


Finn to Guptill, OUT, pitched up and Guptill gets his feet in a tangle - that's out, lbw! Finn went full, fast and bang on off, the batsman took a half-step across and then couldn't get his bat down, banging into his boot as the ball struck pad

MJ Guptill lbw b Finn 5 (7m 6b 1x4 0x6) SR: 83.33


Finn to BB McCullum, no run, fierce lifter in the corridor outside off and this has McCullum hopping around the crease, the ball searing past the outside edge


Finn to BB McCullum, 1 wide, slides this one down the leg side


Finn to BB McCullum, no run, short of a length again and seaming away a touch, again beats McCullum outside off


Finn to BB McCullum, 1 run, length delivery, opens the face and squirts a drive down to third man

New Zealand 9/1   ST Finn 1-0-3-1

Finn to Nicol, no run, touch short of a length, defended in front of the stumps


Finn to Nicol, 1 bye, another fierce lifter from Finn, cuts Nicol in half and then nearly hits Kieswetter on the nose, he can only glove it towards short fine leg and they get a bye


Finn to BB McCullum, no run, banged in short as McCullum gives him the charge, swipes across the line but is beaten


Finn to BB McCullum, OUT, and gone, sliced high to third man! McCullum has been snuffed out by Finn, the batsman took him on, couldn't control the shot and it soared high off the edge to Wright, who took a comfortable low catch. Went for the hurry-up but only hastened his demise

BB McCullum c Wright b Finn 10 (11m 10b 2x4 0x6) SR: 100.00


Finn to Nicol, 4 leg byes, good length ball, sliding towards leg, Nicol misses with a flick but there's a tickle of pad and it race to fine leg


Finn to Nicol, 2 runs, short and outside the line of off, goes across and worked behind square on the leg side

New Zealand 26/2   ST Finn 2-0-5-2

Finn to Williamson, no run, back of a length and coming back in at the batsman, turned short on the leg side


Finn to Williamson, no run, short ball outside the line of off, Williamson blocks short on the off side from deep in the crease


Finn to Williamson, no run, touch fuller, in the corridor and tailing in, Williamson tries to drive but mistimes the ball back to the bowler - another dot


Finn to Williamson, FOUR, short and straight, at the man but the man backs away and smartly cuts through gully for a well-timed four


Finn to Williamson, 1 run, short ball pulled through square leg for one


Finn to Nicol, FOUR, pitched up on the stumps, Nicol is ready for this one and carves a flat four back past mid-on, cracking hit

New Zealand 39/2   ST Finn 3-0-14-2

Finn to Franklin, 1 run, full outside leg stump, Franklin backs away and clubs down to long on


Finn to Taylor, OUT, a third for Finn. He's perhaps a touch fortunate because it was short outside off and Taylor picked out his favourite area towards deep midwicket but couldn't clear the man on the boundary

LRPL Taylor c Hales b Finn 22 (43m 23b 2x4 0x6) SR: 95.65


Finn to Franklin, 1 run, full outside off, a slightly slower ball, and it's dabbed towards point


Finn to NL McCullum, 1 leg bye, comes across his stumps to try and work to leg, doesn't make contact and the ball bobbles to the leg side


Finn to Franklin, 1 leg bye, back of a length, takes Franklin's leg and lobs to the off side so a four effectively becomes a leg bye


Finn to NL McCullum, no run, finishes with a bouncer, flies over McCullum's head as he ducks

New Zealand 110/5   ST Finn 4-0-16-3
