SW Masakadza to Guptill, OUT, against the run of play Zimbabwe break through, it was a short ball outside off and Guptill tried to force it off the back foot through the covers but there wasn't enough room, ends up getting a thick edge taken up high by Taibu

38.1

Cremer to Williamson, OUT, oh dear, the spinner's introduction brings a wicket but not in the manner expected, full ball driven into the covers and he sets off for an easy single, but McCullum is statue-esque at the other end, Kane tries to turn back but is out by the pitch length, horrible running from New Zealand has gifted Zimbabwe another wicket

KS Williamson run out 4 (18m 8b 0x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

New Zealand 131/2   BB McCullum 62* (114b 6x4 1x6)   AG Cremer 0.1-0-0-0

Jarvis to McCullum, OUT, Jarvis strikes and removes the dangerous McCullum with a ball angling into middle, tried to flick across the line and missed, struck on the pad and given, height was the only possible issue but the replays showed it clipping the top

H Masakadza to Brownlie, OUT, dreadful stroke from Brownlie, his feet were well and truly cemented to the crease there, waved the bat at a wide one outside off and got a thick edge which was gleefully gobbled up by Taibu, Brownlie comes crashing back to earth with a duck

DG Brownlie c †Taibu b H Masakadza 0 (7m 7b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Cremer to Vettori, OUT, brilliant work from the pocket rocket Tatenda Taibu behind the stumps sends Vettori on his way, the wrong'un from Cremer deceived Vettori and lured him out of the crease, he missed it and dragged his foot out, the Kiwis five down
