Sidebottom to McCullum, FOUR, streaky, but safe in the end. McCullum comes forward in a checked drive that loops over the bowler's head and all the way to the fence. A fraction early on the stroke, but well timed all the same

New Zealand 6/0   BB McCullum 4* (2b 1x4)   RJ Sidebottom 1-0-6-0

Sidebottom to Ryder, FOUR, thrashed through the off side, just a fraction too much width, but hit on the up, and past the diving Collingwood at point

New Zealand 19/1   JD Ryder 13* (16b 1x4 1x6)   RJ Sidebottom 2.2-0-12-0

Anderson to Ryder, FOUR, short and driven backward of point with immense timing, it's a short boundary down there as well

New Zealand 26/1   JD Ryder 19* (23b 2x4 1x6)   JM Anderson 2.5-0-12-1

Sidebottom to How, FOUR, that's a fantastic strike, straight through the line and all along the ground to the long-off boundary

New Zealand 34/1   JM How 6* (14b 1x4)   RJ Sidebottom 4.1-0-19-0

Anderson to Taylor, FOUR, cut from close to the body, it goes at catchable height inches to the left of Cook in the gully

New Zealand 49/3   LRPL Taylor 7* (5b 1x4)   JM Anderson 6.1-0-26-2

Sidebottom to Oram, FOUR, stands tall and plays a very loose back-foot drive with no footwork, gets a thin inside edge and Mustard has no chance

New Zealand 70/5   JDP Oram 5* (4b 1x4)   RJ Sidebottom 7.1-0-29-0

Collingwood to Vettori, FOUR, dropped ... checked drive clips the fingers of the outstretched hands of Anderson and it carries on for four

New Zealand 99/6   DL Vettori 4* (3b 1x4)   PD Collingwood 3-0-9-2

Collingwood to Vettori, FOUR, short, and clobbered through midwicket. Top biffing

New Zealand 105/6   DL Vettori 9* (5b 2x4)   PD Collingwood 3.1-0-13-2

Wright to Oram, FOUR, a fraction too much width, and that's flashed hard up and over backward point

New Zealand 111/6   JDP Oram 23* (36b 2x4 1x6)   LJ Wright 2-0-8-0

Collingwood to Vettori, FOUR, slower ball, emerges as a rank full toss, and it's merely placed down the ground through long-off

New Zealand 115/6   DL Vettori 14* (13b 3x4)   PD Collingwood 4.1-0-17-2

Anderson to Oram, FOUR, leg-stump half-volley, and that's sweetly threaded through midwicket. Lovely timing

New Zealand 130/6   JDP Oram 32* (42b 3x4 1x6)   JM Anderson 8.2-1-30-2

Wright to Oram, FOUR, an energetic thump over cover. Shouts of "catch" but never close to a fielder. Good strike

New Zealand 137/6   JDP Oram 37* (46b 4x4 1x6)   LJ Wright 3.2-0-19-0

Collingwood to Vettori, FOUR, he steps to leg and heaves inches past the outstretched hand of mid-on who is at full stretch

New Zealand 169/6   DL Vettori 42* (34b 4x4 1x6)   PD Collingwood 7.2-0-36-2
