    28.1 gully dives to his left and he takes it! Brilliant catch and Tim Southee has another. It was fullish and just a tad bit outside off stump. Edwards is lured into a drive away from his body and the thick outside edge seemed it would beat Williamson, but he had other ideas 85/3
    24.5 there goes the off stump! That is the perfect follow up to the bouncer. Pitches it right up there and gets the ball to swing in as well. Powell was playing across the line of the ball, hoping to whip it through midwicket, but it sneaks through, deflects off his pads and breaks his stumps 74/1
    25.2 and he's gone cheaply again! It was the short ball from Wagner, starting outside off stump and coming into the batsman who tried his best to fend it away as he went back and summoned all his height, but he ended up gloving it to the keeper. Wagner punches the air in triumph. He seriously enjoyed that 75/2
    32.2 Anderson grabs a sharp chance at third slip and Samuels' torrid stay in the middle comes to a close. Southee brought his length back a bit, but he was in that off stump corridor. The batsman goes for a desperate waft and looks back to see his outside edge safely pouched around shoulder height just to the left of Anderson 94/4
    not out
    38.4 got him again! Deonarine falls for the second time in the day to Boult as he inside edges the ball onto his stumps. It was short and a little wide outside off stump, Deonarine rose up with it and looked to fend it away, bit can't and he throws an agonised look to the heavens 117/5
    47.2 Boult has done it again, this time in the field! Anderson was certain that was going to be a boundary as Ramdin got up on his toes to play a rasping cut shot but Boult leaps up and was horizontal with the ground as he reaches his left hand out and grabs an absolute stunner! The entire team mobs Boult as Ramdin walks back and the West Indies tail is exposed 146/6
    48.3 another wicket and its Boult again! Full length ball pitching on middle stump and swaying inward a touch to beat Sammy's forward defensive. The umpire judges him out, but Sammy confers with his partner and goes for a review rather reluctantly. The replays show nothing that should endanger the original decision - pitching it line, no bat involved and the height was fine. So Darren Sammy picks up a pair on the same day and West Indies are crumbling again 147/7
    49.3 shortish ball just outside off stump but angling in at the body and Shillinford presents a tame prod only to see his outside edge being taken and second slip picking up a straight forward catch 148/8
    54.3 catching practice for Peter Fulton and West Indies are nine down. It was shortish and on that off stump corridor. Best wasn't sure whether he wanted to play or leave and in the end the outside edge goes at a good height to second slip who makes no mistake 175/9
    54.5 thats ten wickets in the match for Trent Boult and it is New Zealand's first win in 2013 as the ball shatters into the stumps. Full and swinging in, Gabriel tries his best to keep it out, but it was too quick and it was moving too much for him as Boult picks up his ninth wicket of the day 175/10
