    16.4 got him, slogged into the leg side! Guptill finally plinks one short of the rope, Tye gets another, although it was close to being a no-ball... Swung towards deep midwicket from high on the bat and Maxwell again takes the catch coming in off the rope 212/3
    10.4 slogged down the ground... but this is pouched at long-on! Australia finally get their breakthrough, Maxwell running around to bag it safely. Didn't quite get hold of this one, Tye back off the canvas, bloodied but not beaten 132/1
    12.5 Agar baits the trap, and Seifert picks out deep square leg! Hitting towards the longer part of the ground, against the spin and the connection wasn't good, sailed down the throat of Finch, who holds it safely 155/2
    17.6 oof, that's a blow on the helmet - and it's knocked clean off his head and into the stumps! Very unfortunate for Chapman, he's unhurt but he is out... Reminiscent of Pietersen getting out against WI a decade ago, the helmet slipped straight off his head and bounced into the wicket. Stanlake strikes, closing out a decent over 220/4
    18.2 bowled 'im! De Grandhomme clears the front leg but is done by the slower ball, thick-edges into his back leg and on to the stumps! Another wicket at the death, Richardson snaffles the dangerous Bigman 222/5

    18.5 full outside off, Williamson chips it to long-off running in! Completely mistimed, think it was a slower ball again from Richardson, floated up and plopped down the ground, Tye taking it well 224/6

    8.3 done him! Beaten all ends up. Very nicely bowled. A googly, think Warner read it, went back to pull but was through his shot a fraction early and the ball takes the top of off stump 121/1
    16.4 top edge, and taken! A short ball, Short goes for the pull, it goes high in the air and Seifert has plenty of time to get around to short fine leg 217/4
    11.1 taken at deep cover this time! Full outside off, jabbed out over the side, it's a skimming shot, reaches Guptill in a hurry and this time he holds on 143/2

    15.2 chopped on! Southee rolls his fingers across this, Maxwell giving himself some room to open up the off side, into off stump 199/3

    18.3 steers a full delivery through point, as he made it back for the second? No, he hasn't! A few inches short. Seifert did well to gather the ball and get it back to the stumps 238/5
