View dismissal G Gambhir c †BB McCullum b Butler 10 29 13 0 1 76.92
6.1 oh well another poor shot, Butler pitches it outside off and gets it to move away, Gambhir stays rooted to the crease and tries to dab it away to third man but succeeds in getting a thick edge to the keeper, no foot movement whatsoever, it's New Zealand's evening so far 47/3
View dismissal V Sehwag c Vettori b O'Brien 24 15 11 5 0 218.18
3.3 Sehwag's fun ends! O'Brien delivers from wide of the crease and pitches it up, Sehwag goes for the bait but his bat turns at the point of contact and as a result he ends up splicing it to Vettori at mid-off, for more description wait for O'Brien's blog later today 29/1
View dismissal SK Raina c Southee b Butler 0 4 4 0 0 0.00
4.3 another Indian batsman gives away his wicket, Butler bangs it in short and Raina tries to pull it over mid-on, there was a lot of bat speed on that one but the ball hit the top half of the bat and spliced to Southee who jumps and takes it at mid-on, it was a lot like Alastair Cook's dismissal in Kingston 36/2
View dismissal Yuvraj Singh c Oram b O'Brien 50 33 34 3 4 147.05
12.4 Oram pulls it off just before the rope, O'Brien fires it outside off from wide of the crease and Yuvraj plays a front foot scoop over extra cover, Oram's there and he looks back to see it he's safe from the rope 92/4
MS Dhoni*† not out 28 57 30 2 0 93.33
View dismissal YK Pathan b Vettori 0 3 2 0 0 0.00
13.2 another one bites the dust, Vettori lands it just outside off and cramps Yusuf for room, he tries to dab it away down to third man but gets a tame inside edge onto his stumps, wrong choice of shot 94/5
View dismissal RA Jadeja c Guptill b Southee 19 14 16 1 1 118.75
16.5 Jadeja tries to take him downtown again but the loft it mistimed, he doesn't get the desired elevation and Guptill has a fairly easy take at long-off 121/6

View dismissal JD Ryder b Khan 26 22 15 3 2 173.33
4.4 Zaheer just manages to hit the timber, the ball comes back in and the faintest of touches clips the off bail, I don't think Ryder saw that properly 53/1
BB McCullum not out 69 94 55 8 1 125.45
View dismissal MJ Guptill lbw b Harbhajan Singh 10 15 19 1 0 52.63
8.5 very bizarre decision! Guptill aims to pull a short delivery and gets a thick inside edge onto his thigh, the Indians appeal and the inside edge was obvious to the naked eye, umpire Gary Baxter doesn't appear as if if he's going to give it out and then all of a sudden raises the finger, Guptill doesn't want to go and McCullum can't believe it either 69/2
View dismissal LRPL Taylor b IK Pathan 27 35 25 2 0 108.00
17.2 that's a classic delivery and Irfan has done it for his captain, he bowls a searing inswinging yorker angling in on the off stump, Taylor makes a bit of room to forces it through the off side but the speed and movement beats him and clips the off stump 125/3
View dismissal JDP Oram c †Dhoni b IK Pathan 0 1 1 0 0 0.00
17.3 That's two in two! What a bowling change! It's a rank bad delivery outside off and Oram has himself to blame, he chases a short and wide delivery, tries to slice it over the slips and tamely edges it to Dhoni, 125/4
View dismissal NT Broom c IK Pathan b Yuvraj Singh 5 5 3 1 0 166.66
18.4 and it's Irfan again, Broom gets on his knee to a flighted delivery and tries to slog him over midwicket but the top edge is skied to Irfan at midwicket 134/5
