1.3

Martin to Cook, no run, outside off and defended off the back foot

1.4

Martin to Cook, 2 runs, driven, off a slight inside-edge, squirts through midwicket, and they get a bonus two as McCullum fields the throw and shies without checking to see if the slips are awake. They were not

Martin to Cook, FOUR, another emphatic clip off the toes - that's the second time Martin has strayed onto Cook's pads, and he's paid the full price

7.3

Martin to Cook, no run, bad bowling, feeding Cook's habit, and it's sheer good/bad luck that short fine leg was in the way of that shot. It was travelling

15.1

Oram to Cook, 1 run, push and stroll into the off side rather than push and run

15.1

Oram to Cook, 1 run, quicker one, pitches on leg, straightens and Cook is caught in his crease. It looked banged to rights and the umpire has no doubts either
