  • Overs 1-50

Ntini to Papps, OUT, but he's not so lucky this time! Ntini pitches short of a length outside off stump, gets it to kick up off the surface and Papps, initially coming forward, is unable to get back in time and edges it to a diving Gibbs at gully, who gets forward and takes it inches off the ground

MHW Papps c Gibbs b Ntini 9 (32m 22b 2x4 0x6) SR: 40.90

New Zealand 26/1   CD Cumming 17* (26b 3x4)   M Ntini 4-2-13-1

Steyn to Vincent, OUT, and would you look at that! After unsettling him with a snorter last ball, Steyn hustles in and digs one in short again and Vincent is simply hurried into his pull shot, lobbing it up in the air for Harris to run across to square leg and pouch an easy take, very clever bowling from Steyn

L Vincent c Harris b Steyn 33 (96m 64b 4x4 1x6) SR: 51.56

New Zealand 88/2   CD Cumming 42* (94b 7x4)   DW Steyn 7.4-2-20-1

Steyn to Cumming, no run, ouch! Steyn flattens Cumming with another snorter of a short delivery, dug in on middle and leg and as he swivels to pull he misses the line of the ball, he's fairly felled as it sneaks in and clangs him on the visor. Cumming is down in a second as everyone, Steyn right in front, rush to attend to him. He was hit flush in the cheek and there's a good amount of blood. Very nasty. Off goes Cumming now with a towel to his right cheek. Here's Scott Styris in next.

CD Cumming retired hurt 48 (151m 107b 8x4 0x6) SR: 44.85

New Zealand 101/2   SP Fleming 6* (13b)   DW Steyn 9.5-3-25-1

Steyn to Styris, OUT, trapped him! Steyn follows up with a slower delivery, full on middle and leg and swinging in nicely, Styris is back and rooted to the crease, attempting to work it across the line but the bat comes down way too late and he's caught plumb in front, another excellent change-up from Steyn!

SB Styris lbw b Steyn 3 (11m 8b 0x4 0x6) SR: 37.50

New Zealand 105/3   SP Fleming 7* (17b)   DW Steyn 10.5-3-25-2

Nel to Taylor, OUT, excellent catch at gully! This one is short and wide and Taylor slashes it very hard, its traveling like a rocket but Prince intercepts it with a lovely catch above his head to his left! There's not much you can do when someone as sharp as Prince holds onto a firm cut shot like that, and Taylor walks off shaking his head. Really a good catch at gully, that ball was asking to be hit however.

LRPL Taylor c Prince b Nel 17 (38m 20b 4x4 0x6) SR: 85.00

New Zealand 147/4   SP Fleming 32* (41b 4x4 1x6)   A Nel 8.1-2-27-1

Kallis to Fleming, OUT, another good catch, to a poor ball! Kallis offers him another short and wide delivery and Fleming again gets back to slap this over the infield, except its that man Prince at point once more, standing in the way and plucking another stinger in front of his face to get rid of him

SP Fleming c Prince b Kallis 43 (97m 57b 6x4 1x6) SR: 75.43

New Zealand 165/5   BB McCullum 7* (19b)   JH Kallis 10-2-32-1

Nel to McCullum, OUT, edged and gone! On the stroke of tea, Nel strikes, pitching on a length and sucking McCullum forward, pushing at it and edging low and fast to an excellent de Villiers at third slip, diving to his left and taking it in front of Kallis, another good catch sums up the second session for you!

BB McCullum c de Villiers b Nel 13 (43m 28b 1x4 0x6) SR: 46.42

New Zealand 184/6   DL Vettori 13* (15b 2x4)   A Nel 13-3-42-2

Steyn to Gillespie, OUT, gone! Gillespie departs for 0 on debut, staying back in his crease and bringing the bat down late, he's caught dead in front of middle stump to a full delivery coming back off the seam

MR Gillespie lbw b Steyn 0 (10m 3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

New Zealand 187/7   DL Vettori 16* (27b 2x4)   DW Steyn 13.3-4-42-3

Steyn to O'Brien, OUT, and he goes first ball! Steyn bowls it full in that channel outside off stump and O'Brien cant stop himself from having a flirt, edging to Gibbs at gully, moving to his left and taking an easy catch

IE O'Brien c Gibbs b Steyn 0 (3m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

New Zealand 187/8   DL Vettori 16* (27b 2x4)   DW Steyn 13.4-4-42-4

Ntini to Martin, OUT, all over! Pitches on a length and moves away, and he can only edge to Kallis at second slip!

CS Martin c Kallis b Ntini 0 (5m 3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

New Zealand 188/9   DL Vettori 17* (30b 2x4)   M Ntini 15.4-4-52-2
