    70.2 got him, finally! that was tossed up, on leg stump, and for what might be the first time all day, Latham's looked to work a full ball against the turn. Gets a leading edge and it loops back to Shillingford for the simplest of catches 174/2
    8.1 oh, yes. He's finally pitched it in the perfect spot, angling in from wide-ish on the crease and leaving him just that little bit, forcing him to poke and edge to the keeper. Once again, no footwork from Fulton. 9/1

    103.3 got him! Benn looked dangerous with this slider yesterday morning, and this one skids through and hits off stump as Williamson inexplicably lets it go. Kept going with the arm from outside off 259/3
    110.2 what a soft dismissal! That's tossed up on the stumps, and Taylor flicks it uppishly and straight to midwicket. The umpires want to check something, though. It's not a no-ball, that's for sure, and it isn't a bump ball either. It's bounced close to the bat, but it's gone straight off it and up in the air. Edwards took it at chest-height, with both his hands 277/4
    111.3 and he's gone! that was a monstrous delivery. Turn and bounce and the ball goes off the shoulder of the bat, ricochets off Ramdin's chest, and loops up for Gayle to take a dolly at slip 279/5
    171.6 what happened there? That didn't turn and Neesham, poking from the crease, seemed to get an outside edge that Ramdin grabbed after a bit of a juggle. The umpire gives it not out. West Indies call for the review. It isn't a no-ball by any stretch of the imagination, and it's a thick edge... and he's been given out 480/6
    174.3 holes out, and New Zealand have declared. Down the pitch, and swats across the ball and hits it squarer than he would have liked. Drops into deep midwicket's hands and the batsmen sprint off the ground. 508/7

    40.2 got him! Gayle will have to wait a while to get to 7000, and Southee finally has his man. Angled across Gayle, very close to off stump, and Gayle's actually pulling his bat out of the way but can't do it quickly enough, and it kisses his outside edge through to Watling 104/4

    27.1 that's out, surely! Yes, he's raised his finger, and it's Craig's first wicket in Test cricket. He angles this in towards middle stump, and it straightens and strikes Powell on the front pad as he defends down the wrong line. Powell asks Gayle if he should review and Gayle says no. 60/1
    27.3 another! that turns in just a touch from back of a length, and Edwards poked at it with no feet at all. Gets a thick outside edge and Taylor takes a good catch diving low to his right from first slip 60/2
    28.5 he's gone, is he? They're checking for the bump-ball. That was full, on the stumps, and Bravo popped it straight back to the bowler. A lollipop catch, and everyone went up immediately. That isn't a no-ball, and that isn't a bump-ball either. Half-volley, onto the base of Bravo's bat, and loops straight back to Sodhi 61/3

    40.4 got him! This reversed in from just outside off, from a nice full length, and Marlon was caught on the crease with his feet going absolutely nowhere. The umpire didn't hesitate, and Chanderpaul dissuaded Samuels from reviewing it. 104/5
    62.4 got him, and the slower ball has done the trick! It was down the leg side, and he tried to flick it into the leg side but edged it onto his hip and it ballooned up to Watling behind the stumps. And with that wicket, it's tea. 176/6
    65.5 given! He seemed to be unmoved, until Roach turned as if to walk, and then raised his finger. sharpish turn, and Roach got a bit of inside edge onto pad as he came half-forward to defend, and it ballooned up to leg slip 185/7
    68.5 what a catch! That bounced a little too, and he pushed at it with a straight bat. Hit him high on the bat and McCullum at short cover took a blinder, diving forward, as it died on him. It was inches from the ground, and was well out in front of where he was initially stationed 194/8

    73.6 that's Craig's fourth wicket. It's tossed up on off stump and Benn slogs wildly across the line and misses. Crashes into off stump. 223/9
    81.2 that cut away again, and he pokes at it and gets a thin edge through to the keeper. It went off the inside edge, in fact. Are they enforcing the follow-on? Let's wait and watch... 262/10

    0.2 he's gone! Taylor's struck second ball! That was a full, wide outswinger that Fulton threw his bat at, and outside-edges it to the keeper. Why was he chasing that? 0/1
    59.2 got him! And Gayle has taken a good low catch at slip. Came down the track and went after this full, wide one angled across him. Ramdin dived full-length across to try and cling on to the edge, but Gayle kept his eyes on the ball and stayed nice and low. Did Latham get some sort of instruction to go after the bowling during the drinks break? 143/7
    7.4 bowled him! For the second time in the match Williamson's picked the wrong ball to leave alone. This was angled in from wide of the crease, and quite full as well, and it's crashed into the middle of off stump 7/2
    14.3 given! Was that hitting off? Sodhi doesn't dispute it, and it was a superb delivery. Angled in towards off, nice and full, and squares him up as it straightens off the pitch. Back foot comes across after the ball beats his outside edge, and the ball hits his back pad right in front of off. 14/3
    14.4 that's two in two! This is brilliant bowling! Even fuller this time, and Taylor was stuck on the crease as it angled in and hit him low on the back pad right in front of off. His bat was coming down from second slip, and that's always dangerous 14/4
    29.3 beauty! that was loopy, outside off, and it spins back through McCullum's gate as he reaches out to defend. Got a bit of inside-edge on it as well, I think. They're checking for no-ball, and there's absolutely no problem. His heel is well behind the crease. And no, there wasn't any inside edge, I think. Just a lot of turn 55/5
    52.5 down the pitch, tries to go over midwicket, and he didn't get to the pitch. Ends up lifting it high and much straighter than he wanted, and it drops into the hands of Brathwaite, the substitute fielder, at long-on 118/6

    3.3 Southee's got Gayle twice in two innings! Once again, it's the one that's angled across him. It was full, it was close to off, and he had to play, but you'd argue he should have been on the front foot. As it is, he pokes from the crease and gets a healthy edge to the keeper 11/2
    1.4 got him! McCullum had Latham in at short midwicket, and he tumbles to his right to take a smart catch after Powell flicks this in the air after it swung into him from middle-and-off 8/1
    11.2 was that bat-pad? Yup! Edwards walked, after he prodded forward and inside-edged this onto his front pad. Looped up to leg gully. Craig has got him twice in this match 30/3
    17.3 got him! there's some turn, there's a lot of bounce, and Watling has taken an exceptional catch to grab that thick outside edge. Off the shoulder of his bat, and Watling moved his hands up to take that above his left shoulder 54/4
    24.2 pads up again, it's closer to off, and the finger goes up after a protracted appeal from Sodhi. Chanderpaul reviews... it's missed his pad and it's come back a long way and hit him on the thigh, but is height an issue? He's stretched out well forward as well. What does Hawkeye say? Umpire's call, just about clipping the leg bail... and he raises that finger again! 76/6
    17.5 he's got a pair! That's two second-ball ducks, and that's a sensational catch from Latham, one-handed, diving to his left from short leg after Samuels poked forward and got a thick inside-edge onto his front pad 54/5
    36.6 bowled him! that was the leg break on the stumps, and just turned enough to straighten. Ramdin slogged across the line and missed. Crashed into middle stump, and they may not need that extra half-hour 121/8
    35.5 loads of turn from outside off, and Roach was looking to get his gloves out of the way as it spun down the leg side. Big appeal, after Williamson took it superbly high down the leg side, and the umpire raises his finger. Tickled his gloves, I think 115/7
    38.2 down the pitch, and that's a sensational catch from Watling, wide and high to his right, after that spun sharply away and took a thick outside edge. Would have gone to Taylor at wide slip if the wicketkeeper hadn't got his gloves in the way. How did he get his gloves in the way? 134/9
    47.4 he's got him! With three balls to go, he bowled one short and wide. Benn slashed at it, got a thick top edge, and Watling, who has been excellent all Test match, took a smart catch very close to the bat. 216/10
