GJ Hopkins c Bollinger b Watson 35 (62m 39b 3x4 0x6) SR: 89.74

That ends a pretty good knock by Hopkins - his highest score to date in ODI's

They crossed, so the new man Tuffey is off strike

32.6

Watson to Tuffey, FOUR, swings hard at a full ball and gets an inside edge past leg stump and the' keeper to the boundary

35.4

35.5

Watson to Tuffey, 1 run, comes forward and gets an inside edge to mid wicket, Hussey dives but can't field the ball cleanly

35.6

Watson to Vettori, FOUR, drives in the air behind point and it flies away for another four - the Kiwis are right in this, making the most of the short boundary in that over

End of over 36 (16 runs) New Zealand 209/7 (57 runs required from 54 balls, RR: 5.80, RRR: 6.33)
DL Vettori    42* (30b 4x4 1x6)      SR Watson    5-0-33-2
DR Tuffey    17* (11b 3x4)      NM Hauritz    7-0-41-1

Wheels falling off here for Australia at the moment, the Kiwis showing typical fight in trying to chase these runs down. Johnson returns to the crease..................standby for the Boos and jeering!

36.1

Johnson to Tuffey, no run, swing and misses at a wide half volley

White comes into slip...............

36.2

Johnson to Tuffey, 2 runs, edges towards slip, White knocks it down and they scramble a couple

36.3

Johnson to Tuffey, 1 run, comes forward and defends to cover point, another single 54 off 51 needed for the Kiwis

36.4

Johnson to Vettori, 1 run, moves to the off side and plays it to deep square leg, hard to bowl at - mind you a yorker on middle stump might sort that out...................

36.5

Johnson to Tuffey, no run, defends off the back foot to mid off, "No" is the call as Clarke was onto it like a panther

36.6

Johnson to Tuffey, OUT, drives at a wide one and it's edge to White at slip - he's gone

DR Tuffey c White b Johnson 20 (18m 16b 3x4 0x6) SR: 125.00

Great work by Ponting getting the slip in -- not only got the wicket but saved four runs to boot. In comes Bond ahead of Southee, perhaps based on his effort the other night when he helped his team to victory

End of over 37 (4 runs) New Zealand 213/8 (53 runs required from 48 balls, RR: 5.75, RRR: 6.62)
     MG Johnson    6-1-28-3

So Bond comes in and still no sign of the four over powerplay

37.1

Bollinger to Vettori, FOUR, gets across the crease and leg glances to the vacant long leg boundary

37.2

Bollinger to Vettori, 1 run, drives back past the bowler to long off

Now can Bond keep a cool head like he did the other night?

37.3

Bollinger to Bond, no run, defends off the back foot to cover

37.4

Bollinger to Bond, no run, defends off the back foot to the bowler

37.5

Bollinger to Bond, no run, comes forward and defends to point

Just needs to keep a cool head here Bond, just over a run per ball needed

37.6

Bollinger to Bond, 1 run, drives with some style out to deep cover point to keep the bowling

End of over 38 (6 runs) New Zealand 219/8 (47 runs required from 42 balls, RR: 5.76, RRR: 6.71)
SE Bond    1* (4b)      DE Bollinger    7-0-56-0
DL Vettori    48* (33b 5x4 1x6)      MG Johnson    6-1-28-3

Right can Johnson get another wicket for Australia

38.1

Johnson to Bond, no run, plays forward and drives at a 149kph ball and misses

38.2

Johnson to Bond, no run, tries to drive at a yorker that is wide of the off stump

the key here for Bond is too make contact and run here........needs to try and get his skipper back on strike

38.3

Johnson to Bond, 1 wide, down leg side, tries to work it to long leg and misses - wide given

The Aussies are almost having their own Powerplay here, with six inside the circle

38.3

Johnson to Bond, no run, swings and misses outside off

38.4

Johnson to Bond, no run, wide outside off, just inside the guide line that helps the umpire

38.5

Johnson to Bond, FOUR, works off the pads and it flies away behind square leg, Bollinger does his best on the boundary but can't stop it

38.6

Johnson to Bond, no run, drives at another very wide ball and misses outside off - again just inside the guideline for the wide call

Powerplay time or not?

End of over 39 (5 runs) New Zealand 224/8 (42 runs required from 36 balls, RR: 5.74, RRR: 7.00)
SE Bond    5* (10b 1x4)      MG Johnson    7-1-33-3
DL Vettori    48* (33b 5x4 1x6)      DE Bollinger    7-0-56-0

39.1

Bollinger to Vettori, FOUR, drives over the bowlers head and that brings up a wonderful 50 off just 34 balls, what a knock!

39.2

Bollinger to Vettori, no run, moves to the off side and pushes to mid wicket, Clarke has a ping at the bowlers end and misses

39.3

Bollinger to Vettori, no run, moves to leg this time, slashes and misses

This is like trying to pin the tail on the donkey!

39.4

DL Vettori    54* (38b 6x4 1x6)      DE Bollinger    8-0-63-0
SE Bond    6* (11b 1x4)      MG Johnson    7-1-33-3

40.1

Johnson to Vettori, SIX, short outside off and he cuts it over the head of Bollinger at 3rd man - great shot and smart play trying to score at the shorter parts of the ground

40.2

Johnson to Vettori, 1 wide, full and leg side, a shocker of a ball and another run for NZ

40.2

Johnson to Vettori, 1 run, cuts to 3rd man again, this time along the ground for a single

27 off 28 now required, could NZ be favourites?

40.3

Johnson to Bond, OUT, very full and he plays inside it and he loses his stump -- well bowled by Johnson, at last a bowler goes full and straight and it has paid off

SE Bond b Johnson 6 (17m 12b 1x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

Southee is the new man in, can he stay with his skipper and guide NZ to a 2-nil lead in this series?

40.4

Johnson to Southee, no run, flashes at a wide ball outside off and misses it

40.5

Johnson to Southee, no run, defends off the back foot back to the bowler

one more ball to survive for Southee

TG Southee    1* (3b)      MG Johnson    8-1-42-4
DL Vettori    61* (40b 6x4 2x6)      DE Bollinger    8-0-63-0

Interesting, with six in the circle Southee is going to need to take score a single somehow. Harris back to bowl

41.1

Harris to Southee, no run, comes forward in defence, fielded by the bowler

Pressure starting to build..............

41.2

Harris to Southee, no run, plays back and is beaten outside off - good bowling

single needed here by Southee to get his skipper on strike

41.3

Harris to Southee, 1 run, has a wild swing at a good length ball and gets an edge to 3rd man, bit of panic in that shot - but got away with it

Now can Vettori keep his head..................

41.4

Harris to Vettori, no run, moves to leg and tries to hit a yorker, no contact

41.5

Harris to Vettori, no run, another yorker, he makes room but misses again

Harris just needs to get one on the stumps here...................perhaps?

41.6

Harris to Vettori, 1 run, full again, he digs it out behind the stumps to keep the strike - ending an excellent over for the Aussies

End of over 42 (2 runs) New Zealand 242/9 (24 runs required from 18 balls, RR: 5.76, RRR: 8.00)
DL Vettori    62* (43b 6x4 2x6)      RJ Harris    8-0-33-2
TG Southee    2* (6b)      MG Johnson    8-1-42-4

16 off 14 balls needed

42.5

Johnson to Vettori, 1 leg bye, late inswinger, hits him on the pad but angling down leg

42.6

Johnson to Southee, 1 run, edges on the bounce just short of slip, Haddin dives tries to catch it, White knocks it down and a single is scored

What tension ------ ten from the over for the Kiwis. Maybe a dot ball might have been better there for the Kiwis, as Vettori would have had the strike

End of over 43 (10 runs) New Zealand 252/9 (14 runs required from 12 balls, RR: 5.86, RRR: 7.00)
TG Southee    3* (7b)      MG Johnson    9-1-51-4

Harris to crank it up for Australia

43.1

43.2

Harris to Vettori, OUT, steps to the off side and he tries to glance it, but misses and loses his off stump - Australia wins the game and levels the series at one apiece

DL Vettori b Harris 70 (79m 49b 8x4 2x6) SR: 142.85

What a finish - full credit to the Aussies for getting over the line, another great game of 50 over cricket in the battle for the Chappell Hadlee trophy. Smart bowling in the end from Harris got the Aussies home when it looked like it was going to go the other way. Player of the match was Dan Vettori for his excellent bowling and bold batting - sadly his innovative batting was his undoing. Great to watch though. These teams appear to be very well matched up and they will meet again on Tuesday at the lovely Seddon Park in Hamilton for the 3rd ODI. On behalf of the team this is Lawrie Colliver signing off - make sure you join us on Tuesday from Hamilton
