Finn to Rutherford, OUT, he's thrown it away, what a waste with lunch beckoning, widish delivery, but not short enough, Rutherford slashes, and a delighted Cook is in the way of the thick edge at first slip

HD Rutherford c Cook b Finn 37 (116m 77b 2x4 2x6) SR: 48.05

New Zealand 79/1   PG Fulton 41* (83b 6x4 1x6)   ST Finn 7.4-1-19-1

Anderson to Williamson, OUT, that is the breakthrough, Anderson with the wicket-taking delivery, angled in, fullish length, KW not as forward as he would have liked to be, in fact, he's just half-forwardish, the ball moves away to take the edge through to a diving Prior's right

KS Williamson c †Prior b Anderson 91 (266m 199b 15x4 0x6) SR: 45.72

New Zealand 260/2   PG Fulton 124* (293b 15x4 3x6)   JM Anderson 21.4-6-52-1

Panesar to Taylor, OUT, Taylor has given it away with too much eagerness, he was thrusting forward trying to score almost every delivery, tried to turn it to leg and has ended up popping back a leading edge to the bowler, reward for Panesar for flighting it again

LRPL Taylor c & b Panesar 19 (51m 34b 2x4 1x6) SR: 55.88

New Zealand 289/3   PG Fulton 133* (327b 15x4 3x6)   MS Panesar 28-11-81-1

Finn to Fulton, OUT, what a ripper from Prior, one-handed leaping take at full stretch down the leg side, Fulton flicking a thin edge, and would have thought it was far enough from the keeper to be safe, wasn't to be, he'd gone nowhere this morning Fulton, and England have done all the running

PG Fulton c †Prior b Finn 136 (458m 346b 15x4 3x6) SR: 39.30

New Zealand 297/4   DG Brownlie 5* (20b 1x4)   ST Finn 27.3-6-72-2

Trott to McCullum, OUT, Trott has his fourth Test wicket, he's sent back the dangerous McCullum, who went to drive a pitched up delivery, but only edged with the slight away swing through to Prior, standing up

BB McCullum c †Prior b Trott 38 (83m 62b 6x4 0x6) SR: 61.29

New Zealand 365/5   DG Brownlie 35* (79b 6x4)   IJL Trott 3.4-1-7-1

Anderson to Brownlie, OUT, not the best delivery Anderson's bowled, short, wide, but he's cut it straight and low to backward point

DG Brownlie c Compton b Anderson 36 (134m 91b 6x4 0x6) SR: 39.56

New Zealand 373/6   BJ Watling 7* (18b 1x4)   JM Anderson 29.4-8-78-2

Finn to Southee, OUT, wicket for England early after tea, and Southee's important cameo is over, makes room to steer a short ball over slip, finds the keeper

TG Southee c †Prior b Finn 44 (44m 33b 4x4 2x6) SR: 133.33

New Zealand 424/7   BJ Watling 14* (49b 2x4)   ST Finn 35.2-8-112-3

Finn to Martin, OUT, Finn has one more, his fourth, Martin forward to defend a length ball, some extra bounce, and edge travels decently to second slip

BP Martin c Trott b Finn 10 (11m 10b 2x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

New Zealand 436/8   BJ Watling 16* (53b 2x4)   ST Finn 36.4-8-123-4

Finn to Watling, OUT, Finn has his fifth, appeal for a catch down the leg side, and England review the not-out call from umpire Reiffel, Cook looked especially convinced, Watling tried to flick a length ball that was headed down leg, and Prior was around to collect, HotSpot shows a faint inside edge, and New Zealand are nine down

BJ Watling c †Prior b Finn 21 (91m 60b 3x4 0x6) SR: 35.00

New Zealand 443/9   N Wagner 2* (3b)   ST Finn 37.2-8-125-5

Finn to Boult, OUT, that is the end, it has come swiftly after tea, Boult gone first ball, tries to steer it past gully, and Compton takes a diving catch

TA Boult c Compton b Finn 0 (2m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

New Zealand 443/10   N Wagner 2* (3b)   ST Finn 37.3-8-125-6
