    4 its wide of off-stump and Porterfield reaches out for the ball. Takes the outside edge and Latham takes a good catch diving to his right at second slip. Wicket maiden to boot. 19/1
    5.1 The Stumps go flying! Stirling was trying to play positively, looks to drive the ball and a little inswing does for him. Off and Middle stump gets taken out of the ground. 26/2
    44.2 that could well be it for Ireland's hopes. O'Brien decides to charge down the pitch to Santner, the ball spins past the bat and its another easy stumping for the keeper. What an innings from O'Brien though. 235/8
    23.3 what a way to get out! Balbirnie sweeps the ball, doesn't quite time it. Goes up and hits his helmet, Santner dives forward and takes the catch. What an unlucky way to get out. 112/3
    24.1 Well it didn't work. O'Brien goes back in the crease, to a ball he should have gone forward to. Gets hit on the pads in front of the stumps. No doubt about that one, he is a gonna. 113/4
    35.1 and he strikes first ball. Its outside off-stump and Wilson swings through the line. Can't get any height on the ball and its a head height catch for Taylor at extra cover 188/5
    38.5 Singh decides that he needs to push up the rate, charges down the pitch and misses the ball. Ronchi gathers the ball and takes off the bails, out by a country mile 212/6
    41 Dockrell goes forward to defend, the ball pops up and Latham takes a terrific one handed diving catch at short mid-wicket. 218/7
    44.5 bit of hit and hope here from the Ireland tail. Goes down on one knee and it flies high in the air. Latham gets under the ball at mid-wicket and takes the catch 236/9
    not out
    45.3 that's it its all over. Chase gets hit plumb in front of the stumps. New Zealand win by 51 runs. 238/10
