29 September 2012 - day/night match (20-over match)

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

New Zealand 7/1   RJ Nicol 2* (3b)   ST Finn 0.3-0-1-1

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

New Zealand 20/2   RJ Nicol 3* (6b)   ST Finn 1.4-0-3-2

Swann to Nicol, OUT, Nicol goes for the six-hit to deep square leg that served him so well against Sri Lanka ... but this time he picks out the man on the fence! This pitch is a touch slower, the ball came off the toe of the bat rather than the meat and sailed to deep square, who set himself a few yards in from the boundary

RJ Nicol c Bairstow b Swann 11 (34m 15b 1x4 0x6) SR: 73.33

New Zealand 42/3   KS Williamson 9* (10b 1x4)   GP Swann 0.5-0-3-1

Briggs to Williamson, OUT, edged! Touch short from Briggs, Williamson eyed the chance to cut, but the ball skidded through and took the top edge

KS Williamson c †Kieswetter b Briggs 17 (36m 23b 1x4 0x6) SR: 73.91

New Zealand 67/4   LRPL Taylor 15* (16b 1x4)   DR Briggs 2.4-0-19-1

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

New Zealand 107/5   JEC Franklin 33* (21b 3x4 1x6)   ST Finn 3.2-0-15-3

Bresnan to Franklin, 1 run, OUT, low full toss, paddled into the leg side to bring up a superb half century off 33 balls and he's run out coming back for a second. Didn't bring out the dive this time.

JEC Franklin run out 50 (48m 33b 4x4 2x6) SR: 151.51

New Zealand 146/6   NL McCullum 16* (10b 2x6)   TT Bresnan 3.5-0-27-0
