  • Overs 1-50
  • Overs 51-100
  • Overs 101-150

Sammy to Fulton, OUT, Sammy strikes! The captain gets the first breakthrough. He persisted with the line and length outside off as Fulton poked this time and the ball moved away just a bit to get the outside edge to land straight in Ramdin's gloves

PG Fulton c †Ramdin b Sammy 6 (30m 19b 0x4 0x6) SR: 31.57

New Zealand 14/1   HD Rutherford 8* (18b 2x4)   DJG Sammy 1.1-1-0-1

Best to Rutherford, OUT, the change of end works! Best pitched it short and angled in it from outside off, good bounce and Rutherford tried to steer it on off side, trying to run it to third man but edged it to Ramdin for an easy catch. Rutherford didn't budge from the crease for some time after the dismissal, looked very unhappy with something, probably his shot selection

HD Rutherford c †Ramdin b Best 11 (55m 29b 2x4 0x6) SR: 37.93

New Zealand 24/2   KS Williamson 7* (20b 1x4)   TL Best 2.2-0-13-1

Best to Williamson, OUT, oh Best strikes and gets the big wicket of Williamson! This wicket came out of nowhere. Pitched it short of length outside off and KW had been leaving such ones but he played at it with firm hands this time and gave a catch to Sammy at second slip. He caught it this time around chest height

KS Williamson c Sammy b Best 45 (123m 83b 6x4 1x6) SR: 54.21

New Zealand 112/3   LRPL Taylor 41* (65b 5x4)   TL Best 9.4-0-41-2

Deonarine to McCullum, OUT, oh another soft dismissal! McCullum has gifted his wicket away to Deonarine. It pitched on length around off and was turning in and the batsman lobbed a simple and slow catch to Kirk Edwards at short midwicket. It was a half-hearted shot as he neither defended it, nor did he go hard at it

BB McCullum c Edwards b Deonarine 37 (89m 63b 5x4 0x6) SR: 58.73

New Zealand 189/4   LRPL Taylor 73* (140b 8x4)   N Deonarine 3.4-0-7-1

Shillingford to Anderson, OUT, there is an appeal for a catch at silly point, Anderson went for the sweep, but the ball hit pad and popped to the fielder, umpire Reiffel goes to the third umpire, there is a noise as ball passes bat, HotSpot shows a clear mark on the bottom edge and umpire Reiffel raises his finger

CJ Anderson c Powell b Shillingford 38 (62m 70b 3x4 2x6) SR: 54.28

New Zealand 257/5   LRPL Taylor 98* (196b 11x4)   S Shillingford 20.3-2-59-1

Gabriel to Taylor, OUT, finally Taylor's catch has been taken! Gabriel pitched it well outside off, Taylor chased and slashed, and Shane Shillingford ran to his left from deep point and dived full length to take a spectacular catch just above the ground

LRPL Taylor c Shillingford b Gabriel 129 (307m 227b 15x4 0x6) SR: 56.82

New Zealand 296/6   BJ Watling 6* (37b)   ST Gabriel 16.4-4-45-1

Sammy to Southee, OUT, he dies by the sword! Sammy tries a short ball which ends up being too tempting and he launches into a pull shot. But all he manages is a top edge which is safely pounched by deep square leg, who may well have been kept for shots of that variety

TG Southee c Bravo b Sammy 21 (34m 14b 4x4 0x6) SR: 150.00

New Zealand 334/7   BJ Watling 23* (63b 2x4)   DJG Sammy 20.2-3-72-2

Best to Sodhi, OUT, he's nicked off this time. That was a tailender's shot and Sodhi knows it as he knocks on his helmet with the bat. Length ball well outside off stump, but he was drawn into the drive on the up and a fine edge later, Best has his head angled to the sky in thanks

IS Sodhi c †Ramdin b Best 27 (52m 35b 3x4 0x6) SR: 77.14

New Zealand 383/8   BJ Watling 45* (101b 4x4)   TL Best 16.3-1-80-3

Best to Wagner, OUT, he's got two in two! Best kisses the cross on his lapel as he signals to the dressing room. Kept it full and got it to seam away a tad as well. Wagner, fresh to the crease, was stuck on the back foot as he prods at it. The edge flies away to the captain at second slip who grabs hold

N Wagner c Sammy b Best 0 (1m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

New Zealand 383/9   BJ Watling 45* (101b 4x4)   TL Best 16.4-1-80-4

Gabriel to Watling, OUT, but that is all she wrote as Watling goes for a rare hoick and has his stumps in disarray. It was a length ball coming into him, and the quest for quick runs consumes the NZ wicketkeeper

BJ Watling b Gabriel 65 (188m 125b 5x4 0x6) SR: 52.00

New Zealand 441/10   TA Boult 38* (27b 5x4 2x6)   ST Gabriel 25.1-5-86-2
