View dismissal TG McIntosh c †Karthik b Sharma 12 29 27 2 0 44.44
7.1 It seemed inevitable. And it was. McIntosh has been tortured outside off by Ishant, rather by his own technique and has succumbed now. It landed on a length around off and middle, sucking McIntosh into a forward prod. Again, he didn't shift forward his weight well, ended up pushing at the ball on a walk and got the edge. Got to see replays to confirm whether McIntosh edged it or not. ... Oh it was bat on the pad and not wood on leather. The bat was pushed inside the line and the ball went past the edge .. Oh dear .. 21/1
View dismissal MJ Guptill c Sehwag b Khan 8 45 21 1 0 38.09
10.1 Zaheer has bounced out Guptill. Done in by the surprise weapon. It kicked up at the face, a startled Guptill took his eyes off the ball, tried to fend it away by bringing up his gloves as a shield and the ball bobbed away, off the gloves, to gully where the fielder takes couple of steps before diving forward to take it. On a batting track, after chosing to bat first, New Zealand are wobbling. 23/3
View dismissal JM How b Khan 1 8 11 0 0 9.09
8.6 Oh boy .. he has cleaned him up by the change in length. Comprehensively. It was not the yorker but really well up, full delivery and How played all around it. The ball shot through to disturb the furniture. The bat came outside the line and he edged it back to his stumps 22/2
View dismissal LRPL Taylor c Yuvraj Singh b Harbhajan Singh 151 262 204 26 1 74.01
69.3 Ross Taylor departs after an thrilling entertaining knock. It was the doosra outside off and Taylor tried to drag it from there with a slog sweep and skied it towards deep backward square leg where Yuvraj positions himself under the swirling ball and lunges sideways in the end to hold it. 294/4
View dismissal JD Ryder b Khan 201 489 328 24 1 61.28
123.4 The stumps are in disarray. Ryder has dragged one on. Fullish, outside off, Ryder, who just brought up the 200, went for the big drive and got the thick edge. It happens after a landmark. What a fine innings from the boy from Wairarapa. Ryder bangs his bat on the ground as he walks off. 477/6
View dismissal JEC Franklin run out (Yuvraj Singh/†Karthik) 52 180 122 7 0 42.62
110.2 Harbhajan Singh to Ryder, Franklin is run out. What a mess. He has himself to blame. It was slower, bit more air on the off and middle and was pushed to left of covers and Ryder calleds him over for a quick single. Franklin was not ready at all , didn't back up properly and was late to respond. The throw from Yuvraj comes in to Karthik who breaks the stumps. 415/5
View dismissal BB McCullum c Tendulkar b Sharma 115 162 140 13 0 82.14
153.5 short delivery outside the off stump. McCullum, stands tall and slaps it straight to deep point, where Tendulkar not only takes the catch but also ensures that he keeps the dodgy finger out of the way 618/8
View dismissal DL Vettori* b Sharma 55 100 72 6 0 76.38
151.6 the one-two-three trick works as he bowls a fuller delivery this time around after three short deliveries. Vettori, falls for the trap and goes for the drive, managing only an inside-edge 605/7
View dismissal JS Patel c Sharma b Harbhajan Singh 1 14 9 0 0 11.11
154.4 Patel has to go! What a soft dismissal that as he whips it straight to midwicket and Ishant latches onto it. No mistakes this time around and whats more we have the declaration too 619/9

View dismissal G Gambhir c Vettori b Patel 16 77 53 1 0 30.18
16.6 and the move to get Patel into the attack works! Gambhir comes skipping down the track, is beaten in flight and tamely lobs a catch to Vettori at mid-off. He would be frustrated at throwing a start away 73/2
View dismissal V Sehwag* c †McCullum b Vettori 34 39 25 5 1 136.00
8.6 outside the off stump. In fact, he could have had nothing to do with it, but then he looks to slog sweep it from outside the off stump and gets a faint edge back to McCullum, who does no mistakes 48/1
View dismissal R Dravid c †McCullum b Ryder 83 282 206 12 0 40.29
77.6 The change to Jesse Ryder has done the trick. As it happens now and then in these situations with a change-up bowler, it was the short and wide delivery that does the trick. Dravid saw the length and the line, thought it was perfect to pick up a four, chased it, went for the square cut but edged it behind 246/5
View dismissal I Sharma lbw b Vettori 0 14 13 0 0 0.00
21.2 now there's the wicket! Ishant fails to pick the straight delivery and thrusts his pad in front of the bat. There is only one way to go and that is to pavilion 78/3
View dismissal SR Tendulkar c Taylor b Patel 49 98 65 7 1 75.38
45.1 Jeetan catches the big fish. SRT is gone. It was curled outside off on a length, Tendulkar stretched across to push it to cover point for a single that would bring up his fifty but the ball held its line to take the edge and went to first slip. Neat dismissal from the offie. Tendulkar was looking good but he is gone now. Lovely moment for Jeetan Patel. 165/4
View dismissal VVS Laxman c McIntosh b Martin 76 197 149 14 0 51.00
92.3 Laxman departs. Martin is running hot. It was full in length, and cutting away a touch outside off, Laxman hung his bat out to dry and the edge flew to the slip cordon. Gone! The black caps are ruling. 291/8
View dismissal Yuvraj Singh c McIntosh b Martin 0 17 11 0 0 0.00
82.2 Martin has struck, Yuvraj's technique against new ball is exposed. It was full in length and outside off, Yuvraj lunged out to drive, body in no position for the shot, no balance, and his intended cover drive settled into second slip's hands. And what's more, this is Martin's 150th Test wicket 253/6
View dismissal KD Karthik c Ryder b Martin 6 38 31 1 0 19.35
90.1 Old 'new' ball or the new 'new' ball?! We have our answer now! Martin picks his 151th Test wicket! It was full in length and outside off stump, quite similar to the delivery that knocked out Yuvraj- perhaps, a touch wider- Karthik too lunged out to drive and got a nice thick fat edge to slips. 270/7
View dismissal Harbhajan Singh c Martin b O'Brien 18 22 11 2 1 163.63
93.4 Harbhajan Singh pings Martin at deep square leg. It was another bouncer, Harbhajan went for another pull but no so successful this time. Martin holds on to it. India tottering here at Napier. 305/9
View dismissal Z Khan c Ryder b O'Brien 8 12 6 0 0 133.33
93.5 India all out 305. New Zealand have scythed through after they took the new ball. It was short in length outside off, Zaheer flashed it over gully where Ryder intercepted with a well-timed jump! We don't know whether NZ have enforced the follow-on yet. But what a super hot phase for the hosts. 305/10

159.4 Gambhir departs after a marvelous marathon effort. 642 minutes. It drifted in from round the stumps, landed on the middle and off and drifted towards leg. Hawk eye says it would have clipped the leg. McCullum was already pushing down leg. What a fine innings, though. 356/4

9.2 Jeetan Patel takes out Sehwag. You can also say Sehwag has taken out himself. It was floated on the off stump line, Sehwag went for the big swing over midwicket, on a bent knee and missed. The ball wobbled on to hit the back leg around the line of off stump. Critics will go after him for his shot selection, his supporters will say that's how he plays, why crib when he fails now and then. 30/1

72.2 Caught at short leg! Vettori has broken through here. Dravid doesn't seem to be happy with the decision. And we can see why. The bat hit the pad and the ball bounded off the pad to short leg where How dives forward to take it. It drifted in from round the stumps on the leg and middle line, Dravid shaped to defend, the bat brushed the front pad. That must have been the double noise. A fine innings, though.
