    20.5 the flight has worked, very well bowled from Cremer to draw Guptill forward with a defence. He pressed and prodded and the ball turned away to get the outside edge, to Masakadza's right for a sharp, low catch 100/2
    9.6 comes down again but he's given a catch this time, Nyumbu strikes in his first over! Latham charged down, unleashed a cross-bat heave against the turn and Cremer took a sharp catch to his left at midwicket. Umpires check for a no ball, it's fine. They check if the catch is clean and if Cremer rubbed the ball on the ground when he landed, and that looks fine too 44/1
    40.2 he's fallen in the 90s again, what a stunning catch at long-on! KW came down and lofted the ball down the ground, Ervine ran to his left from long-on, caught the ball right at the boundary and was then going over so threw ball in, kept himself in the chase and jumped back in just in time to catch it again. He knows he's caught it cleanly. KW did come down the track on the off side but never got close to the ball 202/5

    26.3 plays across the line and is beaten comprehensively, bowled'im! Some flight for the ball outside off, Munro hardly moved to get into position to play that, it turned in sharply and went through the massive gap between bat and ball to hit top of middle stump 128/3
    39.4 that's the third wicket for Cremer, Elliott gone too! He swept again, but the ball wasn't full and turned to get a leading top edge to balloon towards Chigumbura at short fine leg 198/4

    45.5 he's holed out to deep midwicket, Ronchi falls too! It was a short ball, he opened up and went on the back foot to pull it to Madziva at deep midwicket 223/6

    23.5 oh my, he's given a straightforward catch to deep midwicket! It was a poor short ball, Masakadza went back to pull it, but handed it straight to Wheeler in the deep. He's absolutely gutted 105/2
    22.1 gone, off stump goes for a stroll! McClenaghan angled the ball in from just outside off stump, the ball just about held its line as Chibhabha played inside it and missed the ball completely 97/1
    32.6 is he run out, depends if it's a direct hit or not, it goes up to the third umpire! Williams defended the back of length ball close to himself on the off side but Ervine was way out of the crease by the time Williams said no, wasn't a late call. Wheeler ran to the ball, picked it and turned around early for a direct hit too! He's gone despite the dive, big big wicket 159/4
    26.3 chipped straight to cover, another wicket given away! Tossed up outside off and Chiggi drove that for an easy catch to Guptill around shoulder height 114/3
    45.6 another one held in the deep, big wicket of Williams this time! He slogged that length delivery on the leg side, it wasn't quite that full and Guptill came in a few yards to catch that comfortably. Williams looks at the toe end of his bat while walking back 224/8
    36.3 stunned silence at the ground as Raza holes out too! It was flighted outside off, Raza swung his arms and punched a lot of power into that lofted drive, but gave a simple catch to long-off, who was not even right at the boundary. Raza is stunned too! 172/5
    37.3 stunning catch from McCullum! Chakabva pushed the short of length ball back, but uppishly, and McCullum leapt to his right, rather flew and grabbed it with both hands 177/6
    44.4 that's a suicidal run out, that too after a full toss was pushed straight back to the bowler! The full toss was on the stumps, not smashed away but down the ground and Wheeler turned around quickly after stopping it to rattle the stumps at the non-striker's end because Cremer had walked a few yards by then 212/7
    47.4 that's it, last wicket falls and NZ take the series! Madziva was not in great position to pull that short ball and got a leading edge high on the leg side. Neesham at fine leg got under it nicely to take it in the deep 235/10
    47.1 it's full, it's straight and the middle stump is uprooted! Panyangara went too far and across to glance the ball to leg but missed it completely and the ball took out only one stump 232/9
