    8.4 gone! Came down the track there, met the ball on the full, and hit through the line, fairly cleanly, but ended up picking out the man on the long-off boundary 75/2
    3.1 short ball angled into the body, and Williamson has holed out. Opened up at the hips to pull it, and ended up hitting it in the air. Ervine, the fielder at deep square leg took it well, diving to his right and getting both hands to the ball 26/1

    15.4 down the track and he ends up yorking himself. It's flat, full and straight, and it straightens a touch, sneaks under Worker's bat as he goes for the big shot, and crashes into middle and leg stump 142/4
    11.2 a bit more flight, on leg stump, drops on a good length, and it produces the wicket. Elliott clears his front leg to hit it over the top, and ends up hitting straighter than he would have liked, picks out long-on 93/3
    17.2 moves his line a bit straighter and legs it hang in the air. Goes for the slog-sweep and ends up whipping it towards deep backward square leg, where Ervine takes another good catch, tumbling forward to catch it low with both hands 157/5

    2.3 short and wide, and that's bye, bye, birthday boy. Maybe some extra bounce, but he was moving away from the line to make room, ended up having to reach for the ball to cut it, with his weight going backwards, and could only get a top edge through to the keeper 12/1
    3.1 and he strikes first ball. Length ball, angling into middle stump. It's the old-fashioned stump-to-stump military medium that New Zealand have long excelled at, and Chibhabha plays a poor shot, slogging across the line. You miss, I hit. Chamu miss, Jimmy hit. 12/2

    19.3 another slower ball, straighter this time, and it takes out off stump as Ervine slogs all around it 108/8
    5.4 that's quicker, back of a length, and Raza, looking to dab it into that third man region again, only manages to feather it through to the keeper 25/3
    6.6 fuller, on off stump, and Chigumbura clears his front leg, heaves at it, and holes out to long-on. It was bowled fairly quick, and Chigumbura didn't quite middle it, ended up hitting it near the bottom of the bat 34/4
    11.5 down the track again, meets it on the full again, but this time he doesn't get the elevation, smashes it hard towards the umpire, and Sodhi stretches his right arm out and completes a superb one-handed grab 64/5
    16.3 short, angling into the body, and Chakabva tries the same shot again, leaning away to dab/ramp it towards third man. Was too cramped for room to do that, and he ended up popping it in the air, off the glove, behind the wicket, and Ronchi swooped forward to take the low catch 89/6
    18.1 banged in short, goes for the pull from over his right shoulder, and spooned it in the air to the right of midwicket, and that;s a super catch from Neesham, diving to his right and catching it low with one hand 101/7
