    29.6 Stokes strikes again. Guptill undone by extra lift. Back of a length and zipping through, Guptill is caught napping in the corridor. He pushes and nicks off. Bairstow moves to his right to snaffle it 150/3
    0.6 Finn responds and how.. He exults.. Fractionally short and nips back in, Baz is crease-bound as he aims to push it or rather force it through the off side. He can only drag it back onto the stumps via an inside edge. The bails get tipped off. Six and out! 7/1
    19.5 Williamson throws his head back. Stokes breaks the partnership. Another batsman plays on. Shortish and jags in at 140.1ks, Williamson aims for a jabbing pull over the leg side and ends up dragging it back onto the stumps. The middle stump is splintered into half.. 101/2
    41.3 No fifty for Taylor. He edges it behind. Full and cuts away outside off, Taylor pushes with firm hands and feeds an outside edge. Bairstow dives across to his right and takes a smart catch 212/6
    32.1 The Santner experiment fails. Rashid gives this legbreak ample air. Santer steps out and misses the attempted strike over the leg side. The ball rips through the bat-pad gap and hits the leg stump. It pitched on a fourth-stump line and rattled the top of leg. Top ball from Rashid and New Zealand have been pegged back after the Guptill-Williamson stand 155/4
    40.5 Rashid has his man now. Wrong'un outside off, Elliott, who did not read it, skipped down the track and missed it. Bairstow collects it and whips off the bails to end Elliott's sprightly knock 210/5
    43.2 soft, soft dismissal for Ronchi. On a good length and outside off, may have stopped on Ronchi. He looks to loft-drive it but chips it to mid-off, where Morgan pouches an overhead catch. Ronchi examines the toe end of the bat as he trudges back. NZ have taken three wickets in four overs... David Willey's father - Peter - looks happy in the stands, wearing a smile 219/7

    46.6 The leg stump is tilted back. Back of a length, Southee goes for a big whoosh, perhaps down the ground. He does not connect, Stokes nails the leg stump 244/8
    49.3 Henry holes out to Stokes. Back of a length outside off, slowy ball at 114.2ks. Henry is early into the slog and skews it to long-on for a simple catch. The change of pace hoodwinked Henry.. 267/9

    8.1 And gets a wicket first ball on debut. Dug in short and swings away outside off, Roy was caught between carving it over backward point and perhaps leaving. He just hung it bat out, skewing it up in the air off the bottom half of the bat. Guptill runs back from backward point and takes it 45/5
    1.2 Whoa! Stunning, one-hander from Williamson. Santer drags it even shorter at 98.6ks, Hales skips back, pulls it in the air. Williamson at square leg, leaps and comes down with the ball in his left hand. Great start for New Zealand 8/1
    3.1 The third umpire called in for a stumping chace. Rochi fumbled on the first attempted but managed to take the bails off on the second. Santner's footing is fine. Santer gets turn outside off and lures Root out of the crease. He is beaten by spin, beaten in flight. The ball hit Ronchi just under the chin area, but he plucked it on the rebound off the chest to catch Root short. Santer strikes again! 20/2
    3.2 and Morgan is gone for a golden duck. Pushed through on middle, Morgan loads up, slog-sweeps and holes out to deep midwicket. Perhaps, he intended to go squarer. England in tatters at 20 for 3 20/3
    6.3 Baz takes it and England are in trouble. On a length and on middle, he clears his front leg and aims to launch it over mid-off. He does not time it well, though. Baz leaps off his feet and pouches it 40/4

    17.4 Another stunner, Taylor catches it. Billings comes down the track, Henry bags it short. Billings pulls tamely, Taylor flies to his left at short midwicket to break the partnership. 125/6
    20.1 Willey departs. Lifting ball outside off, he has to fetch the pull from there. The ball hits the bat as opposed to the bat hitting the ball. Splices it to mid-on, Santner moves to his right and snaps it up 138/7
