    6.1 Sammy strikes! The captain gets the first breakthrough. He persisted with the line and length outside off as Fulton poked this time and the ball moved away just a bit to get the outside edge to land straight in Ramdin's gloves 14/1
    11.2 the change of end works! Best pitched it short and angled in it from outside off, good bounce and Rutherford tried to steer it on off side, trying to run it to third man but edged it to Ramdin for an easy catch. Rutherford didn't budge from the crease for some time after the dismissal, looked very unhappy with something, probably his shot selection 24/2
    32.4 oh Best strikes and gets the big wicket of Williamson! This wicket came out of nowhere. Pitched it short of length outside off and KW had been leaving such ones but he played at it with firm hands this time and gave a catch to Sammy at second slip. He caught it this time around chest height 112/3
    87.4 finally Taylor's catch has been taken! Gabriel pitched it well outside off, Taylor chased and slashed, and Shane Shillingford ran to his left from deep point and dived full length to take a spectacular catch just above the ground 296/6
    55.4 oh another soft dismissal! McCullum has gifted his wicket away to Deonarine. It pitched on length around off and was turning in and the batsman lobbed a simple and slow catch to Kirk Edwards at short midwicket. It was a half-hearted shot as he neither defended it, nor did he go hard at it 189/4
    76.3 there is an appeal for a catch at silly point, Anderson went for the sweep, but the ball hit pad and popped to the fielder, umpire Reiffel goes to the third umpire, there is a noise as ball passes bat, HotSpot shows a clear mark on the bottom edge and umpire Reiffel raises his finger 257/5
    115.1 but that is all she wrote as Watling goes for a rare hoick and has his stumps in disarray. It was a length ball coming into him, and the quest for quick runs consumes the NZ wicketkeeper 441/10
    94.2 he dies by the sword! Sammy tries a short ball which ends up being too tempting and he launches into a pull shot. But all he manages is a top edge which is safely pounched by deep square leg, who may well have been kept for shots of that variety 334/7
    106.3 he's nicked off this time. That was a tailender's shot and Sodhi knows it as he knocks on his helmet with the bat. Length ball well outside off stump, but he was drawn into the drive on the up and a fine edge later, Best has his head angled to the sky in thanks 383/8
    106.4 he's got two in two! Best kisses the cross on his lapel as he signals to the dressing room. Kept it full and got it to seam away a tad as well. Wagner, fresh to the crease, was stuck on the back foot as he prods at it. The edge flies away to the captain at second slip who grabs hold 383/9

    25.3 Anderson it is again with the breakthrough, it was bowled full on the stumps, Edwards eagerly leaned forward to work it to the leg side, but a leading edge is all he's got, and cover dives to take it low 103/3
    14.3 loud, long shout for lbw from Southee and umpire Gould raises the finger, Powell walks up to Edwards for a word and goes for the review, he tried to flick this pitched up ball but missed as it straightened into him, HotSpot shows nothing on the bat, Powell is hit on the knee roll, and ball tracker shows that clipping the top of middle, umpire's call stays and Powell has to walk back 46/1
    17.5 Corey Anderson with the big wicket of li'l Bravo, straightens it again from good length, but this time it is close enough to make Bravo play, even as he tries to play softly without getting forward, Anderson generates enough bounce and bite for the ball to carry neatly to second slip 67/2
    46.4 inside edge and Watling has taken it! There's the big wicket. Samuels goes for a decent 60, but West Indies needed him out there this morning. Full and swinging in from outside off, the batsman was wanting for footwork again as he went for an airy drive and succumbs to some excellent fast bowling by Boult 182/6
    30.4 the move's worked, Boult's removed Chanderpaul, who's reached out to this length delivery but has only scooped it in the air to cover-point 119/4
    44.1 he's worked him over! Taylor juggles once at first slip but holds on! He'd kept Deonarine guessing with his swing going in once and out the next. This one was on a length and it shapes away. The batsman hid behind a defensive stroke from the crease, but Boult snares the outside edge with a lovely delivery 175/5

    46.6 looks like he should have done a better job of getting that thing out of his eye. Through the gate and the stumps are splayed! Boult persist with a full length and this one swings in late. Sammy was a little lazy as he walks into a drive on the up. The bat and pad gap was there to be exploited and sure enough it was 182/7
    48.1 Boult has five! Full, straight and swinging in and bye-bye stumps! Shillingford goes for a golden duck not being able to get his bat down in time to negotiate another excellent delivery from the left-arm quick 188/8
    48.3 another one! Sneaks thorough bat and pad and he knocks over the stumps for the third time in his last four balls. It swings in off a fullish length and was too good for a No. 10, who goes for a lazy little drive on the up 188/9
    49.5 clips top of off and that is that. That would have made a top-order batsman's job difficult. New Zealand are still out in the field, possibly discussing about the follow on. And yes, McCullum is enforcing the follow-on. Southee keeps this full and an excellent position of the seam - towards the slips and gully - gets this to shape away after pitching, beat the outside edge of the No. 11 and then timber! 193/10

    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

    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
