1.1

Anderson to McCullum, 1 run, dropped a flashing drive from McCullum outside off stump and Mustard can only palm the chance wide of first slip...he went with one glove to his right and couldn't hang on. Could be costly

New Zealand 2/0   BB McCullum 1* (1b)
2.1

Sidebottom to McCullum, no run, on off stump and driven with real power in the air towards mid-off, it doesn't quite carry and becomes an awkward stop

Sidebottom to McCullum, FOUR, top shot from McCullum as he takes a big stride towards the ball and picks up a hint of width, finds the gap between backward point and cover

2.6

13.4

Swann to McCullum, 1 run, wide outside off stump, drilled down to long-on
