    3.3 first one gone, short ball works. Banged in on leg stump, 143kph which is lively and a good line, Rutherford gets into tangle as he tries to pull and the ball loops off his glove to short fine-leg 17/1
    18.5 short again, a wicket again. Guptill gets into a tangle as he tries to work this to leg and gets a top edge that Broad takes easily. Not a free-flowing innings, he never hit top gear. The value, or otherwise, will become clear a little later 128/6
    9.3 well caught! Key wicket. McCullum tries to go over midwicket with the slog sweep but it comes off a bit of a top edge, miles into the air, and Bairstow steadies himself expertly at deep midwicket. Would have been six in the previous two matches 62/2
    10.5 gone! Tries to repeat the short and picks out deep midwicket where Bairstow is lurking again. Superb bowling from Root, he held this one back, it was about 15ks slower, and he did Taylor in the flight. Impressive nerve 70/3
    14.2 good catch at third man, England have caught well this series. Short outside off stump, Dernbach tries to ramp it fine of third man but Finn makes good ground to his left. He didn't really go through with the shot. 95/4
    15.2 short ball works again, ordinary from Munro. Well-directed on middle and leg, Munro plays an ugly attempt to pull over the leg side and a top edge loops gently to Root trotting to his left from backward point 99/5
    20 neat catch off the final ball, trying to go over the off side and can't get it further than cover moving back from the edge of the ring 139/8
    19.2 Buttler doesn't need to throw this one because there's an edge on it. McCullum moving to leg to try and get it through the off side but can only guide it into the gloves 130/7
