New Zealand 120/2   BB McCullum 56* (62b 3x4 4x6)   JR Hopes 2.5-0-15-1

Hauritz to Stewart, OUT, Stewart comes down the track, looks to hit it straight down the ground in the air but drags it towards Watson at long on who takes the simplest of catches

SL Stewart c Watson b Hauritz 4 (9m 9b 0x4 0x6) SR: 44.44

New Zealand 128/3   BB McCullum 59* (68b 3x4 4x6)   NM Hauritz 2.2-0-6-1

Hauritz to McCullum, OUT, uses his feet and chips it straight to White at mid wicket. Poor dismissal as the pressure told and Australia are extremely happy to remove the dangerman

BB McCullum c White b Hauritz 61 (107m 75b 3x4 4x6) SR: 81.33

New Zealand 130/4   SB Styris 0* (6b)   NM Hauritz 3.3-0-7-2

Johnson to Vettori, OUT, full and swings into Vettori who stays on the crease and is trapped dea in front, no problems giving that out for umpire Baxter, that was very adjacent

New Zealand 154/6   GJ Hopkins 2* (6b)   MG Johnson 5.4-0-28-1

Hauritz to Franklin, OUT, Franklin goes down on one knee and tries to sweep a ball that is down the leg side, he gets a glove on it and drags it back onto the stumps. That is unlucky but when things aren't goin so well those things tend to go against you

JEC Franklin b Hauritz 10 (30m 27b 0x4 0x6) SR: 37.03

New Zealand 177/7   GJ Hopkins 13* (26b)   NM Hauritz 6.3-0-22-3

Watson to Hopkins, OUT, back of a length and Hopkins tries to play square into the off side but it takes the outside edge and through to Haddin. Crucial breakthrough as it's the first ball of the Batting Power Play

Harris to Tuffey, OUT, half volley and Tuffey cracks it back at Harris and he twists in his follow through to take a superb grab and Tuffey's cameo is over. That is a superb cacth from Harris, you just can't keep him out of the action, nor the wickets

DR Tuffey c & b Harris 34 (25m 17b 1x4 4x6) SR: 200.00
