    22.3 yorker, gets some late swing into the left-hander, and it's given lbw almost as soon as he turns around to appeal. Hits him flush on the front toe, and Latham walks off after consulting with his opening partner whether or not to review. Clipping leg stump, according to ball-tracking. Impact on middle, right up on the crease. 44/1
    41.3 and there's the wicket! Quicker, flatter, and it turned in just a touch. Guptill went back and across to defend, and was done in by the extra pace, was a little late getting across and played marginally down the wrong line. The ball took his outside edge, simple catch to slip 98/2
    51.1 given! Williamson goes for the pull and the ball turns in from outside off to strike him on the upper part of the back thigh. Williamson has reviewed. His back leg was bent, but it still looked a little high, let's see. Impact right on the edge of off stump, and it's clipping the upper edge of the bails. Umpire's call. That's a little unfortunate, I think. 136/3
    57.5 short ball does the trick. Was rising over the left shoulder, and Taylor went half-heartedly at the hook. Ball pops up for an easy catch to first slip, and it's gone off the wristband of the glove. Seemed to be a touch too early into the shot 165/4
    78.3 keeps a bit low and comes in off the pitch as McCullum jumps back to work a back-of-a-length ball into the leg side, and there are two appeals. One for lbw, one for a catch at slip as Smith dives forward to grab it low. Nigel Llong raises his fingers, gestures to indicate he gave it out caught, and replays have shown quite clearly that it went straight off the flap of the pad. McCullum doesn't look happy as he walks off. New Zealand have no reviews left, and are eight balls away from regaining them. Hit him on the jump too. Will be interesting to see if it was lbw 243/7
    68.4 wow. This one bounces higher, dug in with extra effort, and Neesham can't do much about it, it's right on target, neck-high, and he jumps back, fends at it, takes his eye off the ball, and pops it up to short leg off the bat handle 205/5
    77.3 given! Went deep in his crease and looked to work this into the leg side. Spun more than he expected, perhaps, to beat his inside edge and hit his pad. He's reviewed it. Let's see. Hit in front of middle and off, on the flap of the pad. Hitting the top of leg stump, a decent chunk of it, says ball-tracking, and Watling has to walk back. Didn't really execute that shot too well. 242/6

    78.4 full and inswinging, and Marsh is on a hat-trick. Right up there, and it pinned Bracewell's front pad on the crease as he aimed an on-drive at it. Looked plumb on first viewing, and ball-tracking thinks so too. Hitting middle and leg stump 243/8
    80.2 full outswinger outside off, and it looks like Southee has nicked it to the keeper. Looked to smash it over mid-on, and it seemed like an obvious nick, but he's reviewed the out decision. Maybe it was bat on ground. Tiny Hotspot mark, but it's at the bottom of the bat rather than where it seemed to hit the edge, but Snicko goes crazy at the point where the ball is up next to the edge, so the third umpire has gone with the umpire's decision. Only thing that could have possibly saved the batsman was that the potential outside edge and the potential bat-on-ground seemed to happen at the same time 249/9
    88.3 full, slanting away in the channel, and Australia have won. Boult makes room to drive that through extra cover, and he gets a healthy edge through to Nevill 295/10
