0.2

Khan to BB McCullum, OUT, edged and gone! Good length outside off and moves away just a hint, McCullum pokes at it, fatally, gets a thick outside edge straight to Vijay at second slip, poor return from injury for the man, almost guided it to Vijay there

BB McCullum c Vijay b Khan 0 (2m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

New Zealand 2/1   MJ Guptill 1* (1b)   Z Khan 0.2-0-2-1

Khan to Guptill, OUT, run-out, Guptill has to go, pushed firmly down the ground past the bowler to mid-on, Gambhir at mid-on picks it up and throws down the stumps at the non-striker's end, Guptill dives but is well short of the crease, India have struck again

New Zealand 19/2   KS Williamson 2* (13b)   Z Khan 2.5-0-15-1

10.5

Khan to Taylor, OUT, gone! Big appeal, and it's upheld. Lands on a good length and Taylor, quote subdued until now, decides to expand, trying to drive it on the up through the covers, gets a faint inside edge straight to Saha, no doubts about that one, Zaheer has struck again

LRPL Taylor c †Saha b Khan 4 (25m 16b 0x4 0x6) SR: 25.00

15.2

Patel to Williamson, OUT, given out lbw, swing for Munaf, came back in and Williamson has to go, good length on middle, landed around there, Williamson tried to drive it through the line, missed and it struck him on the back pad, appeared as though it would have struck middle and leg. It's umpire Kettlebrough this time, getting it right, or so it seems. Hit on the back leg, seaming in from just outside off. Dead plumb

KS Williamson lbw b Patel 21 (71m 50b 1x4 0x6) SR: 42.00

New Zealand 49/4   SB Styris 3* (10b)   MM Patel 2.2-0-4-1

22.6

Ashwin to Styris, OUT, good catch by Yuvraj at leg slip, tossed up on middle and leg, Styris, who had struggled to pinch a single for the previous four deliveries, turned the face again to play it fine, and that he did but there was a leg slip in place, Yuvraj was alert there and snapped a sharp, low catch to send back Styris, who had been extremely fortunate to bat for as long as he did

SB Styris c Yuvraj Singh b Ashwin 22 (57m 35b 3x4 0x6) SR: 62.85

New Zealand 77/5   JEC Franklin 3* (21b)   R Ashwin 3-1-10-1

27.6

Pathan to Vettori, OUT, guided it to slip, quicker through the air, good turn and bounce for Yusuf, Vettori had shaped up to play the cut and just played it to slip where Yuvraj took another sharp one, straight onto his chest

New Zealand 96/6   JEC Franklin 19* (44b 2x4)   YK Pathan 1-0-3-1

29.3

Pathan to Hopkins, OUT, another one to leg slip, Yuvraj is having a ball there, on middle and leg, turning further down, Hopkins is hunting for the single, turns the face and it's straight to Yuvraj who takes an easy one this time
