Southee to Watson, OUT, the miscued pull! Sudden rush of blood there, Southee pitched it on a good length outside off and Watson tried to pull it over midwicket, hit the bottom of the bat and the ball looped towards Arnel at mid-on who fell forward to take the catch

SR Watson c Arnel b Southee 12 (33m 25b 3x4 0x6) SR: 48.00

Australia 25/1   SM Katich 13* (21b 1x4)   TG Southee 3.4-0-9-1

Patel to Ponting, OUT, direct hit! Dan sets a fine example, Ponting pushes a full delivery down to mid-off but he hits it to Vettori's left, picks it up and fires a flat throw at the stumps at the bowler's end, they all know they've got him and the third umpire takes a look

RT Ponting run out 22 (62m 47b 4x4 0x6) SR: 46.80

Australia 63/2   SM Katich 29* (69b 2x4)   JS Patel 0.3-0-0-0

Southee to Hussey, OUT, we saw it coming! Southee had beaten Hussey just a short while back outside the off stump, this time he pitches it up outside off and draws Hussey to drive forward, takes the edge which was loud and clear, Rauf confirms it

MEK Hussey c †McCullum b Southee 22 (65m 48b 5x4 0x6) SR: 45.83

Australia 129/3   SM Katich 67* (117b 8x4)   TG Southee 10.2-1-32-2

Patel to Clarke, OUT, yet another Australian gives his wicket away! Flighted on the off stump, Clarke chips down the track but doesn't loft with any conviction at all, Southee's there at long-on and he runs forward and takes it comfortably, Clarke fell for the trap

MJ Clarke c Southee b Patel 28 (50m 33b 4x4 0x6) SR: 84.84

Australia 172/4   SM Katich 81* (146b 10x4)   JS Patel 7.3-1-22-1

Vettori to Katich, OUT, Katich falls just before tea! He shuffle across his stumps yet again and tries to clip it to the on side, but the ball goes straight off the bat and goes to Watling at forward short leg, no doubts about that at all

SM Katich c Watling b Vettori 88 (236m 171b 11x4 0x6) SR: 51.46

Australia 180/5   MJ North 1* (18b)   DL Vettori 10.4-3-15-1

Southee to Haddin, OUT, another soft dismissal and New Zealand are taking them all, Haddin shapes to punch it through the off side but checks his shot and ends up tamely tapping it back to the bowler, that fielder at silly mid-off may have played on his mind

BJ Haddin c & b Southee 12 (32m 31b 2x4 0x6) SR: 38.70

Australia 199/6   MJ North 8* (43b 1x4)   TG Southee 16-2-48-3

Vettori to Johnson, OUT, New Zealand are chipping away, Vettori bowls it flatter on the off stump, Johnson gets forward and offers a bat-pad catch to McIntosh at silly point who takes it inches off the turf, Aleem Dar sends him on his way immediately

MG Johnson c McIntosh b Vettori 0 (3m 3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Australia 200/7   MJ North 9* (46b 1x4)   DL Vettori 16-4-28-2

Southee to North, OUT, North is referring this, the ball lands on middle and goes through with the line, North plays all around it and is hit flush on the pad bang in front of middle, looked obvious to us and Asad Rauf, North challenges it but in the end it's a referral used up by Australia

MJ North lbw b Southee 9 (66m 47b 1x4 0x6) SR: 19.14

Australia 200/8   NM Hauritz 0* (0b)   TG Southee 16.1-2-48-4

Vettori to Harris, OUT, Vettori strikes, the Australian collapse continues, the arm ball does the job, Harris is hit on the front foot as he looks to whip it square, in front of middle and leg, Harris is gone

RJ Harris lbw b Vettori 10 (20m 17b 2x4 0x6) SR: 58.82

Australia 217/9   NM Hauritz 6* (14b 1x4)   DL Vettori 18.2-5-31-3

Vettori to Bollinger, OUT, the bails are down and the innings is over, Vettori bowls this one quicker and flatter, the ball clips the pad and clips the stumps as Bollinger gets forward to defend, leaves a big gap between pad and bat

DE Bollinger b Vettori 4 (9m 6b 0x4 0x6) SR: 66.66

Australia 231/10   NM Hauritz 12* (21b 2x4)   DL Vettori 19.3-5-36-4
