    0.3 full and driven at edged and taken with a very smart grab at second slip, lovely catch from Graeme Swann. A duck for Ronchi on his New Zealand debut, he was trying to on-drive a very full ball but got a thick outside edge as it left him slightly, it went low to Swann's left and he got down very sharply to snap up the chance, very well held, it went quickly to him 1/1

    0.5 another edge and another outstanding catch this time from Jos Buttler diving with one hand to his right, blinding catch inches from the ground. It was a full length ball just outside off, Williamson came forward to it and got a healthy edge which just carried to Buttler who got down in a flash and held it in the right mitt, superb catch and what a start for England 1/2
    25.2 he's got him, Anderson makes the breakthrough via a thin inside edge! This may have just drifted down the hill slightly, a lenght ball and Taylor was driving away from his body, on the up, the ball scraped a bit of paint off the bat before landing up in Buttler's gloves. A 120-run partnership has made NZ favourites but England have an opening 121/3

    37.1 floated up, goes to drive and gets done through the gate cleaned bowled. Went to drive from off stump but didn't get in a great position to do so at all, foot wasn't to the pitch, the bat was slightly outside the original line and went it turned a little and went down the slope, Elliot was done for, losing his leg stump 168/4
    40.3 full and wide, swung away off a big outside edge and deep cover takes the catch and that ends a very curious innings from McCullum, he was thrashing awkwardly at a lot of stuff and has now holed out to Morgan running in from the cover rope, simple chance 185/5
