    5.3 bowled 'im! That's what he was looking for when he bowled that wide, this time he gets the inswinger bang on! It was full, it moved very late and Charles was late on the shot and was playing all over the line of the ball with a closed face of the bat and has to endure the sound of the death rattle 19/2
    1.5 what has he done! That was not swinging away, it was not outside off and he has just let that knock over his off stump! McClenaghan puts this one a length and angles it in and the batsman, who was hoping for the ball to seam away or at least bounce over the stumps, none of which happened and he has to walk back to the pavilion 5/1
    7.3 oh dear, flays the full, wide ball and finds Williamson at a short point position. He had drilled that square drive but much to West Indies' chagrin, cannot find the gap. Bravo wastes a start and New Zealand smell a comeback here. Was it an issue with the bounce on this drop in pitch? So many batsmen are middling the ball but striking it uppishly 32/3
    18.3 edged and it goes to first slip, but Ross Taylor is not sure it carried. So the umpires have a mid-pitch conference. It was a lovely ball just a touch outside off and draws Simmons into a flashy drive outside off. A thick outside edge results and Taylor seems to have got his fingers just about under the ball. The third umpire is making extra sure, as the magnifying glass comes out. And after tons and tons and tons of replays, New Zealand have five and the well-set Simmons walks back 94/5
    11.1 full, swinging in, rapped on the pads and he raises the finger. Bravo chooses to review. Pitches in line, seams in quite a bit and Bravo was playing the angle and even as he looks to adjust, the ball thuds rather high on the pads. HawkEye says it would hit the stumps. All three reds and off he goes 60/4
    20.1 he has been leaving his leg stump unguarded for a lone time and this time Mills is on target. Bowls fuller and Deonarine was shuffling way across to the off side to tuck it to fine leg and instead allows clear passage for the ball to hit leg stump. The leg bail is broken as well 96/6
    23.3 driven uppishly and Brendon McCullum at short cover makes no mistake. Another lovely, low catch and that's Mitch McClenaghan's fifth wicket. It was there to drive but he can't pierce the field either. Poor judgment, poor shot and key wicket for New Zealand 121/7
    not out
    26.6 and he has a wicket off the last ball of the over. It wasn't the best ball he's bowled as Holder sees this on the pads and looks to flick it away for some easy runs, but doesn't get as much bat as he would have hoped. Ronchi makes no mistake in pouching the edge and New Zealand are back in this 147/8
