Botha to Nicol, FOUR, comes down the track and lofts away through wide mid-on and to the fence to get underway

New Zealand 4/0   RJ Nicol 4* (4b 1x4)   J Botha 0.4-0-4-0

1.3

Tsotsobe to Nicol, FOUR, charges down the track to a full and wide ball outside off and flatbats this over the head of a leaping mid-off with superb timing

New Zealand 11/0   RJ Nicol 8* (6b 2x4)   LL Tsotsobe 0.3-0-5-0

2.3

M Morkel to Nicol, FOUR, poor ball as Morne strays on the pads, flicked away past fine leg who is up in the circle

New Zealand 23/0   RJ Nicol 19* (11b 3x4 1x6)   M Morkel 0.3-0-10-0

3.2

Tsotsobe to Guptill, FOUR, full ball outside off and he crunches it past mid-off who dives in vain, superbly timed as the New Zealand openers start brightly

New Zealand 29/0   MJ Guptill 6* (6b 1x4)   LL Tsotsobe 1.2-0-12-0

3.3

Tsotsobe to Guptill, FOUR, too easy to get under and Guptill picks up a ball outside off and swings it away to the midwicket boundary

New Zealand 33/0   MJ Guptill 10* (7b 2x4)   LL Tsotsobe 1.3-0-16-0

4.4

de Lange to Guptill, FOUR, this is short down leg and Guptill only needs to get bat on it to send it to the fine leg fence, and he duly obliges

New Zealand 41/1   MJ Guptill 16* (11b 3x4)   M de Lange 0.4-0-6-0

5.5

Tsotsobe to Guptill, FOUR, comes down the track and blazes a full ball outside off through the covers with an easy clearance of the infield

New Zealand 49/1   MJ Guptill 22* (14b 4x4)   LL Tsotsobe 2.5-0-23-0

7.1

Parnell to Guptill, FOUR, starts with a loose ball on leg which Guptill cheerily flicks away behind square to the boundary

New Zealand 57/1   MJ Guptill 27* (18b 5x4)   WD Parnell 0.1-0-4-0

7.5

Parnell to BB McCullum, FOUR, Parnell again strays onto the pads and McCullum swivel-pulls him along the ground through backward square

New Zealand 62/1   BB McCullum 8* (10b 1x4)   WD Parnell 0.5-0-9-0

7.6

Parnell to BB McCullum, FOUR, this is fuller but still on leg and again McCullum makes him pay with a neat clip past the diving AB behind the stumps to the fine leg fence

New Zealand 66/1   BB McCullum 12* (11b 2x4)   WD Parnell 1-0-13-0

9.5

M Morkel to Guptill, FOUR, superbly played, that was just a chip pull, it was on middle and Guptill just jabbed it away in short-arm fashion without much power but the timing was in sync as it headed over the midwicket rope

New Zealand 79/1   MJ Guptill 40* (29b 6x4 1x6)   M Morkel 1.5-0-17-0

10.6

Duminy to Guptill, FOUR, full toss which Guptill heaves away to the right of long-on but Botha is completely unsighted and starts to head the wrong way before seeing the ball and by then it's too late

New Zealand 88/1   MJ Guptill 46* (33b 7x4 1x6)   JP Duminy 1-0-9-0

11.1

de Lange to BB McCullum, FOUR, this is a full toss on leg and McCullum clips it past the midwicket fielder and out to the boundary

New Zealand 92/1   BB McCullum 20* (17b 3x4)   M de Lange 1.1-0-13-0

14.3

Botha to BB McCullum, FOUR, charges down the track and belts a drive down the ground with such ferocity that long-on, only needing to move a few metres to his left, couldn't cut it off with a dive

New Zealand 114/2   BB McCullum 35* (30b 4x4 1x6)   J Botha 3.3-0-22-0

17.2

M Morkel to Williamson, FOUR, Kane goes all Vettori on Morne, walks miles outside off stump and flicks a full ball following him through fine leg with pinpoint placement

New Zealand 156/3   KS Williamson 16* (12b 1x4 1x6)   M Morkel 3.2-0-35-0
