M Morkel to Nicol, SIX, and gets slammed out of the ground first ball! This was absolutely crunched, short on off and he came down and pulled with reckless disregard for the safety of the crowd and sent it sailing high and long over cow corner

Botha to Guptill, SIX, comes down the track and cleanly strikes this over the bowler's head into the pavilion where one of the TV crew drops the catch

M Morkel to BB McCullum, SIX, comes down and picks Morne up and deposits a full ball on leg over the picket fence at long-on

15.4

de Lange to Franklin, SIX, this is full on off and Franklin swings cleanly and connects nicely, sends the ball sailing over the rope at long-off

New Zealand 123/3   JEC Franklin 7* (3b 1x6)   M de Lange 2.4-0-26-1

15.5

de Lange to Franklin, SIX, short and wide outside off and Franklin upper-cuts with good timing and sends it sailing over the short boundary at third man

New Zealand 129/3   JEC Franklin 13* (4b 2x6)   M de Lange 2.5-0-32-1

16.1

Duminy to Franklin, SIX, comes down the track once more, doesn't get hold of this completely but still has more than enough on it to send it sailing over long-off

New Zealand 136/3   JEC Franklin 20* (6b 3x6)   JP Duminy 2.1-0-18-0

16.2

Duminy to Franklin, SIX, swings this with perfect timing over the rope at wide long-on, in fact that is out of the ground and onto the road, Franklin is driving New Zealand here with a six blitz

M Morkel to Williamson, SIX, fantastic stroke from Kane, gets down on one knee and slog sweeps a full ball on off with nonchalance into the stands at square leg

New Zealand 152/3   KS Williamson 12* (11b 1x6)   M Morkel 3.1-0-31-0

19.5

de Lange to Williamson, SIX, New Zealand finally connect with one, Kane swings a full ball on off over his favourite boundary at square leg, not well timed but it didn't need to be with the short boundary

New Zealand 172/4   KS Williamson 28* (19b 1x4 2x6)   M de Lange 3.5-0-43-1
