    2.5 got him! Watling takes a comfortable chest-high catch on the deep midwicket boundary after Smith pulled this short ball uppishly and straight at the fielder. He had to fetch it from a fair distance outside off stump 10/2
    1.6 big appeal, and it's given! He was coming forward to that, but the ball swung in late and he ended up pad-batting it towards mid-off. It was hitting him in line with middle, fairly low down on the front pad 8/1
    14.1 got him! It's flat and quick, on off stump, and it spins sharply away and takes his outside edge as he rocks back and tries to club it over the leg side. Ball loops up to short third man, who has the simplest of catches to take 104/4
    12.6 the short ball has done the trick for New Zealand. Bravo has looked distinctly uncomfortable against it, and this was properly banged in. He tried to pull, and was in no position to do so, since it was shoulder-high, and he sent this top-edge steepling behind the wicket, where Ronchi doesn't have to move too much to take the catch 98/3
    17.5 taken! Another short ball, and Pollard connects this time but not very well, and he swats this uppishly towards deep midwicket. Anderson runs to his right and dives sideways to take it low, close to the ground, with both hands. 131/7
    15.3 short, and it surprised him for pace, and he was halfway between pulling and swaying out of the way and the ball looped up off the shoulder of his bat down to short third man. Excellent delivery, saw Sammy clear his front leg in a premeditated manner 123/5
    16.5 angled across, and Russell, backing away, tries to go over extra cover but ends up slicing it high in the air and the sweeper runs to his left and takes a simple catch on the boundary 128/6
    17.6 slower ball, and Ramdin had no idea where that was going, before he sees it late, dipping down towards the blockhole. He swats at it and hits it down towards mid-on. Neesham sprints in from long-on and throws to the keeper's end, where Ronchi takes off the bails as Ramdin looks for a non-existent second to boost West Indies' total. This has been a superb last over from Southee 132/8

    8.5 And Sammy's done the trick! It was the slower ball, and Williamson closed his face early, and the ball looped high over Sammy, who leapt up in his follow-through and took a super overhead catch with his left hand. 65/2
    1.5 bowled him! That's a good ball, much fuller, right up in the blockhole, in fact, and much closer to off, and he tries to drive without moving his feet and drags an inside-edge onto his stumps. 12/1
    12.3 Sammy strikes again! It's short, and McCullum pulls, but for once he doesn't get hold of it and it goes uppishly and drops comfortably into the hands of Dwayne Smith at deep square leg 95/3

    14.5 Sammy has three now. He bangs this in, and it goes looping off Anderson's outside edge as he looks to pull. Easy catch for Narine at short fine leg 115/4
