18.5 TG Southee to A Lyth, 4 runs, playing a little away from his body at a length delivery, but was pretty well in control as he opened the face and it ran wide of gully to third man | May 30, 2015
16.6 TG Southee to A Lyth, 4 runs, ah, loses his line to end the over, that will ease the pressure on Lyth a little as he clips it away very fine | May 30, 2015
15.2 MJ Henry to AN Cook, 4 runs, short, and hammered...he struck that very sweetly, and placed it wide of the deep square leg as he pulled strongly. Not that far from the fielder, but he had no chance | May 30, 2015
11.1 MJ Henry to A Lyth, 4 runs, well controlled, guides a short-of-a-length delivery behind point with a straight bat, uses the pace of the ball and just opened the face a fraction | May 30, 2015
10.2 TA Boult to AN Cook, 4 runs, the fact that Cook has left so well gets Boult to bowl straighter and he's able to clip it easily off his pads to fine leg | May 30, 2015
6.5 TA Boult to A Lyth, 4 runs, just a push, Lyth strides forward into a length delivery and basically blocks it through the covers then the ball races away | May 30, 2015
5.5 TG Southee to AN Cook, 4 runs, lovely stroke, comes forward into a full delivery and drives it positively through the off side gap at cover...McCullum chases it hard, but can't quite haul it back | May 30, 2015
0.5 TA Boult to AN Cook, 4 runs, on the stumps now, curling into line but that's in Cook's court, gets an inside edge down to fine leg for a boundary to get going | May 30, 2015
72.1 SCJ Broad to TA Boult, out, length outside off, Boult carves it straight up in the air... and Lyth positions himself safely under it at point. Boult's happy slap is over, the fourth NZ batsman to have scored at more than a run a ball. Broad finishes | May 30, 2015
