View dismissal T Taibu c Oram b Southee 21 18 14 3 0 150.00
4.4 67.9 mph, The slow bouncer does the trick. Taibu waited and crashed a pull shot but found the fielder at square-leg. Oh well. Breezy. Entertaining. But it's over now. 36/1
View dismissal H Masakadza run out (Oram/†Hopkins) 20 30 20 2 0 100.00
6.4 from NL McCullum, Masakadza is run out. It was slog swept to deep square-leg and Oram moved to his left and released the throw quickly. It wasn't accurate but the keeper reached out, collected it and broke the stumps. Masakadza tried to dive in but ... 58/2
View dismissal AM Blignaut b Vettori 8 13 8 1 0 100.00
7.2 50.2 mph, Clatter! Blignaut, who showed an immense liking for the slog sweep today, is bowled, going for yet another slog sweep. The ball went past the big heave to fall on the stumps. It landed around leg, turned down leg side, caught the glove and went in to hit the stumps 60/3
View dismissal E Chigumbura c Guptill b NL McCullum 3 4 4 0 0 75.00
8.1 53.9 mph, Caught at long-on. He went for the big shot but couldn't clear the man in the deep. Three quick wickets threaten to peg back Zimbabwe. Chigumbura, who starred in the warm-up games, is gone. 62/4
View dismissal CR Ervine st †Hopkins b NL McCullum 1 5 5 0 0 20.00
8.6 50.5 mph, Bogo Jonito! Nathan slowed it up nicely, it drifted in the air from round the stumps, drew the batsman out of his crease before it dipped and turned away past the lunge. Stumped! Ervine was not looking for the big shot, he was just fataly attracted by the flight and leaned forward to turn it to the on side for a single 63/6
View dismissal CK Coventry c & b NL McCullum 0 1 2 0 0 0.00
8.3 49.9 mph, Five down and struggling. What a quick turn around. It was a slow loopy off break, Nathan has been constantly slowing up the pace, and the batsman lunged forward as he was beaten in flight and ended up tamely scooping it back to the bowler 62/5
GA Lamb not out 14 25 21 0 0 66.66
View dismissal T Maruma c Guptill b Styris 4 8 11 0 0 36.36
12.3 77.3 mph, Seven down and what a staggering turn around. This time it was Maruma who charged down the track and went for the lofted six but holed out at long-on 73/7
View dismissal AG Cremer b Styris 0 1 1 0 0 0.00
12.5 78.1 mph, Gone! Clatter! Mucherly fun if you are an Kiwi fan. It cuts in from outside off stump, the bat was pushed outside the line, the ball collided with the inside edge and fell on the stumps 74/8
View dismissal P Utseya* lbw b Styris 0 1 1 0 0 0.00
12.6 78.0 mph, Plumb! Another in cutter, another wicket. It darted in from just outside off, Utseya played around it and was hit in front. As Fred Trueman would have said, "What's going off out there?!" 74/9
View dismissal RW Price b Vettori 2 9 4 0 0 50.00
15.1 57.1 mph, The big slog sweep was attempted but he missed it completely. No wood on leather but there was leather on the wood. Clatter! 84/10
Extras (b 1, lb 1, w 9) 11
