    11.5 scooped out towards deep backward square and Guptill perishes! Tredwell gave it some air, maintained his accuracy and Guptill went down on one knee, only to pick out the fielder on the rope three runs short of a fifty 105/2
    8.2 and then gone, just a tickle through to the keeper! Wright has made the breakthrough, Rutherford trying something a little more delicate, maybe a slightly slower ball that just gripped a little and the attempted glide to third man ended up as a gimme to Buttler 75/1
    19.5 short of a good length and outside off, swatted high into the off side... and taken! McCullum goes but not before stamping his mark on the match, dying by the sword that has taken a good few chunks out of England today 188/6
    14.1 scooped high out towards the deep midwicket rope but that won't get there, even with the short boundary, Bairstow takes the catch! Wright has his second wicket, it was a length ball on the stumps, an ugly smear across the line by Taylor, who's still searching for form after his NZ return 124/3
    16 this time he goes, slogging a slower ball to YJB at deep midwicket again! Dernbach took the pace off and Munro was slightly through the shot, trying to muller the ball over the ropes but picking out the man 139/4
    18 bowled him, a slowy just nudges the off bail! Even Dernbach was duped by that one, turning away in disappointment as Elliott pushed forward and was beaten ... but the magic had worked and that's another wicket, and another important dot ball 154/5

    9.1 advances, flicks the pad and bowled! Lumb's birthday party has been pooped and he goes for a pedestrian 17 from 23 balls, he was aiming to hit McCullum over midwicket, the ball skidded on, hit the knee roll and clipped the top of leg stump 43/4
    1.3 bowled 'im, taxi for Hales! He tried to turn the ball to leg, playing across the line, and there was just a touch of seam movement away, enough deviation off the pitch to take it past the bat and thundering into the top of off stump 9/1
    1.4 full and drives... and edged low to gully! That's a golden duck for Wright and England are quacking, quaking, cracking up. McClenaghan maintained a fullish, straightish line, Wright didn't really move his feet and a tentative prod resulted in a thick outside edge - plenty on it to reach Guptill, crouching low to safely pouch 9/2
    4.3 dug in, loops off the glove and plops into the hands over short fine leg - another one down! Bairstow has thrown it away there, a short ball down the leg side, maybe a touch quicker than the batsman expected and instead of ramming it to the boundary he tamely flipped it to the man on the edge of the circle 24/3
    10.1 a scratchy innings is put out of its misery but a high top edge towards deep backward point. There was a bit of width but another England batsman fails to time the ball, Morgan slopes off and that's a second scalp for Butler 47/5
    17.1 drives aerially, high off the bat and picks out extra-cover - Buttler's rearguard is snuffed out! Franklin hit the deck hard and Buttler at last mistimed one after a gunpowder-fuelled fifty 115/8
    12.4 it's all going wrong for England and New Zealand are steamrollering this, as Patel scoops a drive to mid-off and is run out by a direct hit. He was yards short, good arm from Boult 62/6
    14.4 back of a length, no foot movement and chipped lamely into the hands of mid-off. New Zealand are drawing the curtains on this sorry England effort 80/7
    19.2 full and straight, you miss, I'll hit - Tredders is castled and Franklin has three. Tredwell was looking to continue his happy thrash but played across the line and saw his stumps splattered 137/9

    19.3 back of a length, hit uppishly towards mid-off and there's a stretching leap to snag the final wicket! New Zealand have completed the job to wrap up a bruising, brutal victory 137/10
