  • Overs 1-50
  • Overs 51-100

Bollinger to McIntosh, OUT, McIntosh had no idea where his off stump was! Bollinger lands it on a fullish length just outside off and gets it to nip back in, McIntosh shoulders arms but looks back to see his off stump pegged back, Bollinger kisses the Australian crest and not the VB sponsor logo!

TG McIntosh b Bollinger 4 (4m 6b 1x4 0x6) SR: 66.66

New Zealand 4/1   BJ Watling 0* (0b)   DE Bollinger 1-0-4-1

Johnson to Sinclair, OUT, this is smart bowling, follows that bouncer with an off-stump yorker, swinging in, and Sinclair is clearly not expecting it as it squeezes under his bat before it comes down. Too good for Sinclair

MS Sinclair b Johnson 11 (70m 53b 1x4 0x6) SR: 20.75

New Zealand 30/2   BJ Watling 13* (56b)   MG Johnson 5.5-2-6-1

Bollinger to Watling, OUT, Bollinger has got the breakthrough! Played on! Looks to play his punch shot through the covers, but it is too close to him and sort of hand cuffs him, taking the inside edge onto top of leg stump

BJ Watling b Bollinger 46 (139m 103b 5x4 0x6) SR: 44.66

New Zealand 114/3   LRPL Taylor 50* (34b 7x4 1x6)   DE Bollinger 8.1-2-33-2

Harris to Guptill, OUT, what a time to get a wicket, three minutes before lunch! softish dismissal, fends at a back-of-a-length delivery, away from his body, edges it at a comfortable height to second slip

MJ Guptill c Ponting b Harris 4 (29m 21b 0x4 0x6) SR: 19.04

New Zealand 143/4   LRPL Taylor 74* (52b 12x4 1x6)   RJ Harris 10.4-3-31-1

Harris to Vettori, OUT, gone, loose shot again, and Australia are right back in! Straight delivery really, not wide enough to be playing the cover drive, ends up playing outside the line and gets an inside edge through to Haddin

DL Vettori c †Haddin b Harris 15 (15m 12b 3x4 0x6) SR: 125.00

New Zealand 167/5   LRPL Taylor 83* (62b 13x4 1x6)   RJ Harris 12.2-3-39-2

Johnson to McCullum, OUT, another soft dismissal, poor cricket by McCullum, straight delivery, going with the angle, McCullum drives hard, gets an edge, and Ponting takes it easily at second slip

BB McCullum c Ponting b Johnson 5 (31m 26b 1x4 0x6) SR: 19.23

New Zealand 193/6   LRPL Taylor 104* (85b 17x4 1x6)   MG Johnson 9.3-2-27-2

Johnson to Patel, OUT, and that's the problem with tailenders when they get confident, they play shots they shouldn't, as Patel goes chasing this wide delivery without moving his feet and Ponting takes a nice catch to his right at second slip

JS Patel c Ponting b Johnson 7 (32m 25b 1x4 0x6) SR: 28.00

New Zealand 234/7   LRPL Taylor 137* (100b 19x4 4x6)   MG Johnson 13-2-37-3

Bollinger to Taylor, OUT, review, Taylor goes for the boundary with the field up, goes for the pull shot, the ball is too full, Aussies appeal for a bottom edge, Asad Rauf doesn't move. Hot spot shows a faint tickle as the ball passes the bat, and Rauf overturns his decision

LRPL Taylor c †Haddin b Bollinger 138 (180m 104b 19x4 4x6) SR: 132.69

New Zealand 236/8   TG Southee 1* (2b)   DE Bollinger 12-3-52-3

Johnson to Arnel, OUT, Johnson finally gets his way, it pitches around off, Arnell hangs his bat to this one, and the angle takes the edge, end of an important little partnership

BJ Arnel c †Haddin b Johnson 7 (20m 18b 1x4 0x6) SR: 38.88

New Zealand 263/9   TG Southee 21* (14b 2x4 1x6)   MG Johnson 16-2-59-4

Harris to Martin, OUT, too good for Martin, duck No. 28! Full and straight, Martin stays outside the line, gets an inside edge and is bowled

CS Martin b Harris 0 (2m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

New Zealand 264/10   TG Southee 22* (15b 2x4 1x6)   RJ Harris 15.3-3-50-3
