  New Zealand innings (20 overs maximum) R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal MJ Guptill lbw b Finn 5 7 6 1 0 83.33
1.3 88.8 mph, pitched up and Guptill gets his feet in a tangle - that's out, lbw! Finn went full, fast and bang on off, the batsman took a half-step across and then couldn't get his bat down, banging into his boot as the ball struck pad 7/1
View dismissal RJ Nicol c Bairstow b Swann 11 34 15 1 0 73.33
6.5 57.1 mph, Nicol goes for the six-hit to deep square leg that served him so well against Sri Lanka ... but this time he picks out the man on the fence! This pitch is a touch slower, the ball came off the toe of the bat rather than the meat and sailed to deep square, who set himself a few yards in from the boundary 42/3
View dismissal BB McCullum c Wright b Finn 10 11 10 2 0 100.00
3.4 89.8 mph, and gone, sliced high to third man! McCullum has been snuffed out by Finn, the batsman took him on, couldn't control the shot and it soared high off the edge to Wright, who took a comfortable low catch. Went for the hurry-up but only hastened his demise 20/2
View dismissal KS Williamson c †Kieswetter b Briggs 17 36 23 1 0 73.91
11.4 58.6 mph, edged! Touch short from Briggs, Williamson eyed the chance to cut, but the ball skidded through and took the top edge 67/4
View dismissal LRPL Taylor* c Hales b Finn 22 43 23 2 0 95.65
16.2 90.9 mph, a third for Finn. He's perhaps a touch fortunate because it was short outside off and Taylor picked out his favourite area towards deep midwicket but couldn't clear the man on the boundary 107/5
View dismissal JEC Franklin run out (Bairstow/†Kieswetter) 50 48 33 4 2 151.51
19.5 from Bresnan, low full toss, paddled into the leg side to bring up a superb half century off 33 balls and he's run out coming back for a second. Didn't bring out the dive this time. 146/6

View dismissal C Kieswetter b Vettori 4 14 14 0 0 28.57
3.5 61.8 mph, tossed up and bowled him! Kieswetter flailed across the line but the delivery was too full to sweep, it dipped under the swinging blade and spread the stumps like a sunburst 21/1
View dismissal AD Hales b NL McCullum 22 26 15 3 0 146.66
6.2 55.2 mph, bowled him - he's now the leading wicket-taker again! This was flat, pushed through and gripping just a touch off the pitch, Hales left a gap as he advanced and swiped across the line and looked round to see leg stump rocking in the wind 38/2
View dismissal LJ Wright c Taylor b Bracewell 76 59 43 5 5 176.74
18.2 74.2 mph, he's struck second ball, Wright slaps this straight to cover as he tried to give himself a touch of room to go through the off side 142/4
View dismissal EJG Morgan c Bracewell b Mills 30 38 31 1 1 96.77
16.2 70.2 mph, wonderful catch! Morgan picked this up from off stump and connected well, but Bracewell made a lot of ground to his left at long-on and hurled himself under the catch 127/3
