42.1

Patel to Southee, 1 run, full on the off stump, dragged towards long-on for a single

42.4

Patel to Mills, FOUR, third man is up and Munaf bowls short, Mills slashes hard and the ball flies away over short third for a boundary

42.5

Patel to Mills, SIX, what's happening here, some superb hitting combined with some dreadful bowling, slower ball bowled full on the off stump and Mills slogs it way over the deep-midwicket boundary, if only New Zealand had not lost a flurry of wickets in the middle overs

42.6

Patel to Mills, no run, good length on middle and off, pushed back to the bowler

New Zealand 312/8   MM Patel 7-0-68-0

44.1

Patel to Mills, SIX, continues to bowl his rubbish, full outside off, a length ball and Mills lofts it powerfully over extra cover for a massive six

44.2

Patel to Mills, (no ball) 1 run, caught off a no ball, waist high full toss on middle, tries to pull it away over deep square, doesn't connect it well enough, goes really high and Yusuf takes a simple catch in the deep.

44.2

Patel to Southee, 1 run, in the blockhole on the off stump, dug out wide of the bowler towards long-off

44.3

Patel to Mills, (no ball) 1 run, caught off a no ball again, another one, a beamer, and he's taken off, the attack, caught by Dhoni off an attempted pull but he's bowled two waist high no balls in one over, his painful spell has come to an end

New Zealand 333/8   MM Patel 7.2-0-79-0
