New Zealand 138/3   MJ Hoggard 13-1-50-0

99.1

Hoggard to Taylor, FOUR, driven slightly in the air but with real oomph through the covers, he really leathered that

Hoggard to Taylor, FOUR, he leans on that, where the previous one was all power, this is all timing, it leaves Hoggard on the ground and zips to the boundary behind him

99.3

Hoggard to Taylor, no run, outside off and with eight off this over already, he can leave with no qualms
