    17.6 back of a length just outside off, Guptill pulls and picks out short midwicket! Trap set there by Eoin Morgan and Guptill has been taken as planned. Going for a paddle pull, not really a full-bloodied stroke, but it was still struck firmly and it was a very smart catch from Chris Jordan going to his left, a good height for him and he held on well 114/2
    7.2 the change has worked! Excellent catch by Stokes. McCullum went for another pull, the ball seemed to skid onto McCullum, he was rushed into the shot and it went high towards midwicket. Still, Stokes had to make decent ground as the ball came over his shoulder. Well judged. 61/1
    35.4 caught at mid-on off a full toss, which is called no-ball on field! Williamson taken by surprise, the ball dips on him, skews it without any timing and it's well caught by Plunkett diving forward...it goes up to the third umpire, who rules it's below waist height so it's given out 235/3

    40.6 full and straight, Elliott shuffling across his stumps trying to flick leg side, misses and is given out lbw! Looked straight enough, umpire Davis raising the finger, Elliott declines the review after consulting with his partner but that looked good live. Yorker length, angled in, caught Elliott on the boot and surely that was going on to hit leg stump at least 307/4
    45.2 steps to leg, tries to slap a back of a length ball over the off side and gets a thin edge behind! Useful wicket for England because Ronchi was looking very dangerous but here has just miscued a cut stroke and got a feather edge through to Buttler. Some relief for England 352/5

    12.3 picks him out! The reverse sweep brings his downfall, didn't keep the ball down and Taylor did not have to move an inch at short third man 85/1
    15.6 tries a slog sweep from outside off and Hales picks out deep midwicket! Straight to the fielder a few yards inside the rope and an easy catch for Trent Boult. England losing wickets quickly here to kill their early momentum. Hales was well set but just didn't get enough of this, it was a bit of a top edge and never threatened to clear the boundary. A few strokes finding the fielders and England are suddenly in trouble 100/3
    15.4 he's got him! That's a huge wicket for Santner. Root getting too far under this slog-sweep, getting more height than distance, he had to reach for it a little. Nathan McCullum takes a well-judged catch at midwicket 100/2
    35.2 massive moment! Morgan finds deep point. He came down the pitch, aimed in the air over the off side again but got it too square and Elliott barely had to move on the boundary 274/6
    21.4 backs away to leg and tries to swing a full delivery through the off side but edges behind! Healthy edge to the keeper and the change of bowling works. A brief flurry from Stokes but perhaps not enough for this chase. He had a fair old swing once more here but nicked off here trying to belt another ball away, thin outside edge with Stokes slightly off balance and it was an easy catch for Ronchi 163/4
    32.1 there's the breakthrough for New Zealand! And it's that man Boult. Wasn't a great delivery, short of a length and angled across Buttler who went for the cut and got a thin toe end low to Ronchi 259/5
    36.1 and another! Some width outside off, Billings going for the cut but couldn't keep it down and finds backward point 275/7
    44.6 slapped down the ground has Rashid done this here, no!! Long-on come around to take the catch but he's running over the rope so throws it back and then another catch! What a superb piece of fielding and surely that's the game. Tim Southee with the initial catch, realised he was going over the rope so flicked the ball back at the last second but Boult was there in time to reach up with a left-hand and make the second grab. What a bit of work, typically brilliant from New Zealand 355/9
    44.4 aims off side with all the fielders up but doesn't get all of it and finds mid-off jogging back! Slightly off balance trying to swing over the off side and didn't time this at all and Brendon McCullum went back a few yards to take an easy catch 351/8
