Sreesanth to McCullum,
Sreesanth has produced a beauty! Cracker! It lands short of length - that lovely seam rushing on straight - around the off stump and straightened. And bounced. McCullum was squared-up and pushed out at it. The ball clipped the outer edge and flew to the keeper. McCullum swung around but his worst fears were confirmed. Gone!

Ojha to Guptill,
Out for 85! A very fine innings but its over now. He shuffled too far across. It landed on the leg and middle line and straightened a touch. Guptill shuffled across and tried to work it to square-leg region for a single but missed it completely. Trapped! It would have hit the leg stump.

Khan to Taylor,
That round-the-stumps angle has worked for Zaheer. This landed well outside the off stump but perhaps that angle forced Taylor to flirt with it. The ball shaped away, with the shiny side, after landing and took the edge. It was an halfhearted attempt in the end; he just sort of wafted at it.

Khan to McIntosh,
Fatal inside edge. It was a length delivery outside the off stump line and McIntosh pushed out at it, bat away from the body, and stabbed outside the line. The ball collided with the inside edge and fell on the stumps. McIntosh departs after setting up a good base for New Zealand.

Khan to Hopkins,
Trapped! Hopkins couldn't handle the round-the-stumps angle this time. It came in from outside off stump - it landed close to the off - but he chose to shoulder arms. Mistake. The ball kept coming in and hit his pad. No shot offered. It doesn't matter where it hits him as long as its going to crash into the stumps. Gone!

Khan to Williamson,
Dead plumb! Zaheer is creating problems from round the stumps. It was the normal delivery coming in from that angle. it didn't straigthen, it didn't jag back in, it just came in with that angle but Kane got into a tangle. He was trying to drive it to the leg side without getting into a right position and missed. It would have definitely crashed into the stumps. He played all around it, he moved that front leg too far across and couldn't get his bat around in time.

Harbhajan Singh to Vettori,
Gone this time! It landed on a length on the off and middle and straightened. Vettori went down on his knee and tried to sweep it but didn't connect. It hit him on the back thigh in front of the off stump. Will confirm whether there was any edge post the replays. Replays in: They don't show any edge. That would have hit the off and middle stump line. Vettori didn't look too happy. Was there a thin bottom-edge? The replays don't confirm it We need snicko and hotspot.
Snickometer thing in: It doesn't show any edge

Harbhajan Singh to Ryder,
Ryder is gone. New Zealand continue to collapse. It dipped on Ryder who stuttered out to defend and the ball turned to clip the outer edge and went to first slip. Harbhajan signals 'bye bye'! Fine delivery. It came in from round the stumps, dipped in front of the middle and leg line and turned

Harbhajan Singh to Southee,
Stumped! Southee rushed down the track for the big hit but the ball went on straight, winked past the edge, and Dhoni did the rest.

Harbhajan Singh to Martin,
And the phantom, who has never got out against India before, decides to gift his wicket. It turned in towards his pad and Martin nudges it to right of leg slip where Sehwag pouches it. And Sehwag runs back to the pavilion to get ready to bat.The ghost who bats walks back casually.
