View dismissal JJ Peirson lbw b Thornton 44 30 5 2 146.66
10.2 he's got his first one! 143 kph, full and straight, tries to clip it into the leg side but his favourite shot lets him down this time. That was too fast for him. Caught plumb in front of the sutmps. 94/3
View dismissal BB McCullum* c Botha b Abbott 30 21 2 1 142.85
6.6 and it's paid off! Abbott's consistency has done for McCullum's patience. Cramps him near his stomach yet again. McCullum throws yet another pull shot at it. He connects this time, but it's only a top-edge. Balloons to Johan Botha who takes it comfortably on the midwicket boundary 73/1
View dismissal CA Lynn c Roy b Abbott 13 7 0 2 185.71
8.2 full on leg stump, tries to lift it again, but doesn't get the elevation. Long-on takes a few steps to his left and takes it Aussie style 89/2
View dismissal AI Ross c Maddinson b Botha 6 10 0 0 60.00
11.5 Brilliant! Loops it on leg stump. Batsman steps out, gets to the pitch and slogs it in long-on's direction, where Nic Maddinson times his jump perefectly to take it. He loses balance on the landing, but loops it up with his left hand and regains composure to complete an excellent catch 100/4
JA Burns not out 51 33 3 2 154.54
View dismissal BCJ Cutting c & b Abbott 20 12 4 0 166.66
16.3 slow, short, climbing, induces the pull shot once more. Batsman gets a top edge and he runs slightly to the right, slightly backwards, to take the catch off his own bowling 142/5
View dismissal JD Wildermuth c Dwarshuis b Botha 8 4 0 1 200.00
17.4 tosses it up this time on a good length. Batsman gets down too early and his attemped sweep gets a top-edge, that should have been taken more easily by Dwarshius. Makes a meal of it, but hangs on with his left hand after a few fumbles 155/6

View dismissal DP Hughes b Cutting 85 55 7 4 154.54
19.1 he's dragged it on! Cutting angles it in on a length from around the wicket, Hughes goes for the pull but cramps himself with his step across and inside edges this one on to his stumps. Are we going to see some drama here? Surely not? 184/7
View dismissal JJ Roy lbw b Badree 7 6 1 0 116.66
2.1 drifted into middle stump on a good length, expects this to turn away from him but completely misses the wrong one as he tries to drive across the line. There's no doubt about this one. Plumb. 16/1
View dismissal NJ Maddinson c & b Cutting 24 15 3 1 160.00
6.4 slower ball, back of a length, angling away from off stump. Again Maddinson looks to go against the angle, doesn't have too much pace to work with, and is through his shot too soon, toe-ends it and it loops up slowly, giving the bowler loads of time to run forward and to his left and take a dolly 61/2
View dismissal MC Henriques* c Steketee b Buchanan 10 10 0 0 100.00
9.1 length ball close to off stump. Henriques looks to slog that over wide long-on, the line and a bit of extra bounce foil his plans, and it balloons up off the outside half of his bat, into the hands of mid-off 81/3
View dismissal SW Billings b Swepson 5 5 0 0 100.00
10.6 bowled him, that's the googly. Down the track comes Billings, looks to work it through wide mid-on, thinking his playing against the turn. He isn't, and all he does is leave a bit of gap between bat and pad for the ball to sneak through 91/4
View dismissal BJ Haddin c sub (AJ Doolan) b Wildermuth 32 13 3 2 246.15
15.2 a bouncer wide of off stump. That would've been called wide for height too if he hadn't hit it. Instead, Haddin tries to hook that into the leg side and hits it straight to square leg 150/5
View dismissal J Botha c Cutting b Swepson 13 10 1 0 130.00
18.2 tosses up again, on middle stump. That ball was a stunning 67 kph from Swepson. Pitches and spins away and Botha's attempted slog-sweep can only go as far as mid-on 181/6
