    18.4 slower ball and Guptill goes hard it and puts it miles into the air towards midwicket, Finn is running back and takes the catch! A superb take, very difficult that watching it come over your shoulder and he's held on very well here. False stroke from Guptill, took one hand off the bat, and had no control, was just hoping it would evade Finn but he's taken a great catch 116/2
    13.1 there it is, back of a length from Wood, excellent line and McCullum nicks off! Good pace, there's some extra bounce and no room for McCullum to cut, still he tried only to get a thin deflection through to Buttler, who holds on this time 88/1
    41.3 tries again and this time picks out mid-on! Big wicket for England, Williamson falls short of his ton. Trying to drive over the leg side again with the fielder up at mid-on but hasn't got enough on this and it's taken by Rashid above his head, claiming a solid chance. Great time for England to strike 250/4
    34.3 full and straight, Taylor tries to heave it over long-on... but is smacked flush on the pads, that is gone! That was a cutter from Finn, slightly slower and it gripped a fraction, beat Taylor's big ole swing and pinned him on the back leg in front of middle and off - easy decision for Rob Bailey 217/3

    43.4 goes to flick a straight ball leg side and picks out midwicket. Simply not a great connection and finds the fielder right on the edge of the circle where Stokes took the catch above his head. Trying to whip this across the line was Ronchi and it didn't pan out as expected, another good scalp for England 271/5
    48.4 fuller length, whacked over the off side but picks out deep cover. Not this time for Santner, leaning back trying to find the same stand as the previous over, nowhere near as good a connection and picks out the fielder taking a straightforward catch 342/6
    49.2 another swing, gets this out over the leg side but not far enough, deep midwicket is under it and takes the catch! Very smartly taken moving forward, a inch or two from the turf, nice work from Stokes. Southee going for the big swing but not getting enough of this 344/7

    12.5 on the charge again, not to the pitch but he rifles a drive... straight to extra cover! Instinctive catch from Williamson, he can't have had any time to process it, just got the hands in the right position and braced for impact - took a scorcher right in front of his chest 111/2

    10.4 advances and heaves across the line, Hales has dragged on! That's the way for bowlers to succeed in these crazy times - take wickets. Henry bellows in delight, middle stump out of the ground, NZ have got one 100/1

    39.1 short ball from around the wicket, tucks Morgan up a little and he hooks in the air, straight to fine leg! Morgan goes for a brilliant hundred, roundly applauded from the field. Possibly a slower-ball bouncer from Southee, caused the misjudgement 309/3
