New Zealand 7/1   BB McCullum 2* (3b)   RJ Harris 1-0-7-1

Bollinger to McCullum, OUT, good length, McCullum moves back and looks to push into the off side, it takes the inside edge back onto his pads and then onto the stumps and Bollinger is rapt with that. Well bowled, the change of angle did the trick

BB McCullum b Bollinger 23 (33m 25b 3x4 0x6) SR: 92.00

New Zealand 55/3   LRPL Taylor 4* (10b 1x4)   MG Johnson 2.4-0-8-1

Johnson to Broom, OUT, cracking ball from Johnson as he spears it into leg stump, it swings away just enough and Broom is squared up trying to play to mid on/mid wicket and it takes the edge through to Watson at first slip. Australia and Johnson break what was a promising partnership

New Zealand 126/4   LRPL Taylor 47* (44b 3x4 2x6)   MG Johnson 5-1-16-2

Watson to Taylor, OUT, bumper from Watson and Taylor takes the bait, pulling off the top edge out to Hussey on the square leg fence, he moves forward and takes the catch low down. Watson has a real knack of taking wickets at crucial times and there's another. Advantage Australia. Taylor absolutely furious with himself

LRPL Taylor c Hussey b Watson 62 (90m 66b 4x4 2x6) SR: 93.93

Johnson to Vettori, OUT, Vettori moves back and pushes into the off side and sets off for a run, taking on Ponting at cover, Ponting picks it up and hits the stumps to find Vettori just short of his ground, superb fielding from the skipper!
