Briggs to Guptill, FOUR, flighted on middle and off, Guptill skips out and punches forcefully between the bowler and mid-on for the first boundary

New Zealand 6/0   MJ Guptill 5* (3b 1x4)   DR Briggs 0.5-0-6-0

Briggs to BB McCullum, FOUR, tossed up on middle, McCullum backs away and lasers the ball back past the bowler for a driven four, beaten Wright's dive at long-off

New Zealand 15/1   BB McCullum 6* (7b 1x4)   DR Briggs 1.5-0-12-0

Briggs to BB McCullum, FOUR, four more, clubbed down the ground! Briggs went full, on the stumps and McCullum flexed those biceps to bunt the ball aerially to long-on, one bounce and over the rope

New Zealand 19/1   BB McCullum 10* (8b 2x4)   DR Briggs 2-0-16-0

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

New Zealand 34/2   KS Williamson 6* (7b 1x4)   ST Finn 2.4-0-9-2

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   RJ Nicol 10* (12b 1x4)   ST Finn 3-0-14-2

Broad to Taylor, FOUR, short ball and Taylor clatters a pull shot in front of deep midwicket for the first boundary since the sixth over

New Zealand 54/3   LRPL Taylor 9* (7b 1x4)   SCJ Broad 1.1-0-8-0

Swann to Taylor, FOUR, gets this one away, Taylor brings out the sweep to quite a short delivery and sends it backward of square on the leg side

New Zealand 73/4   LRPL Taylor 19* (18b 2x4)   GP Swann 3.4-0-18-1

Briggs to Franklin, FOUR, tough chance, perhaps that's harsh because Franklin comes down the pitch and crunches this back in Briggs' direction and it was more self preservation than an attempt to catch it as it whistles to the boundary

New Zealand 94/4   JEC Franklin 21* (14b 1x4 1x6)   DR Briggs 3.5-0-34-1

Broad to Franklin, FOUR, that's a lovely shot, short of a length again and deflects it down to third man...Finn makes a good effort to stop the boundary, gets a hand to it, but can't flick it back

New Zealand 101/4   JEC Franklin 27* (17b 2x4 1x6)   SCJ Broad 2.3-0-17-0

Broad to Franklin, FOUR, big full toss, poor delivery, and it gets dispatched as he swings it backward of square and beats long leg

New Zealand 105/4   JEC Franklin 31* (19b 3x4 1x6)   SCJ Broad 2.5-0-21-0

Bresnan to Franklin, FOUR, now he paddles, or scoops, him straight over the wicketkeeper. It was a low full toss and he got right underneath it. Excellent batting

New Zealand 124/5   JEC Franklin 46* (27b 4x4 2x6)   TT Bresnan 3-0-23-0
