View dismissal BJ Haddin run out (†McCullum) 109 156 114 8 3 95.61
37.2 Southee to White, run out, yorker length on middle, dug out awkwardly and Haddin storms down the pitch for a quick single, the ball rolls to McCullum who dives forward to throw down the stumps at the strikers end, to find Haddin well short of his ground. End of a superlative century from Haddin, but the middle-order now needs to step up with some quick runs 200/4
View dismissal MJ Clarke c Guptill b Elliott 64 100 69 6 1 92.75
23.3 slower one bowled full outside off, Clarke makes room and drives it powerfullu but straight to Martin Guptill at short cover. Finally a wicket but not after an excellent start by the Australian openers 135/1
View dismissal RT Ponting* c Mills b Elliott 16 26 23 1 0 69.56
31.3 top-edge and excellent catch at fine-leg by Mills, short of a length on middle and off, tries to pull it away over square leg, gets the leading edge and Mills, despite the sun being being in his eyes, pouches it superbly 169/2
View dismissal DJ Hussey c †McCullum b O'Brien 7 10 7 1 0 100.00
34.1 edged and gone! The bowling change works wonders. Short of a good length outside off and a hint of away movement and some sharp bounce, tries to run it down to third man, gets a thick outside edge that's snapped up comfortably by McCullum. Important breakthrough there, Hussey was looking good 187/3
View dismissal CL White c Vettori b O'Brien 10 23 16 1 0 62.50
38.4 poor shot, bowled on a good length on the off stump, he goes for a blind loft over mid-off, mistimes it completely, gets a lot of elevation on it, Vettori takes a couple of steps back and takes a well-judged catch 212/5
View dismissal MEK Hussey c Taylor b Mills 51 58 32 6 0 159.37

View dismissal CJ Ferguson lbw b Vettori 28 33 23 4 0 121.73
45.4 plumb in front! Tossed up on middle, bowled really slow at 78 kmph, he is into the sweep shot really early, is done is by the pace, strikes him on the back leg on line with the stumps and Bucknor makes a straightforward decision 274/6
View dismissal JR Hopes b O'Brien 8 14 11 0 0 72.72
48.6 full and straight, and it's timber! Yorker length on middle, Hopes makes room to slice that over point, misses it completely and hears the death rattle behind him 297/7

View dismissal LRPL Taylor lbw b Hilfenhaus 4 3 2 1 0 200.00
5.2 he's given him! Good length on middle, and held its line this time. Taylor came forward to defend, missed it completely and was struck in line. Correct decision there, Taylor showed his bat to the umpire immediately upon being struck on the pads, but Bucknor is having none of the nonsense 16/2

46.2 that's it, almost all over for New Zealand, full toss outside off stump, tries to smash it over the covers, mistimes it straight to Ponting who's standing there at the edge of the circle. The bat slips out of McCullum's hands as he goes for the shot 262/9
