    2.1 and Kleinveldt strikes first ball, Nicol looking to step out and have a go for the third time, and Kleinveldt's bounce off a good length defeats him, de Kock snaps up the edge 9/1
    3.6 oh well, pitched up, swung, tamely and straight to mid on, who was placed a touch shortish 19/2
    4.5 got the big one, a few tight deliveries was all it needed, short of a length once again from Kleinveldt, into the pads, McCullum swivels and swipes hard at it, top edge cannot evade the backpedalling short fine leg 19/3
    6.2 another one goes, short of a length ball, attempted hook edged through to the wicketkeeper, replays show it came off the shoulder, could have brushed the glove, Franklin had a look at his shoulder before departing 27/4

    11.6 sigh^infinity, they refuse to learn, opens up and swings at a slowish good length ball, vertical top edge comes down to the bowler 60/8
    7.3 oh boy, coming apart for New Zealand now, standing in the crease and swatting a bouncing good length delivery straight to mid off, Morris gets his first international wicket, ball hit the bat close to the top 34/5
    8.5 this angled in even more, quite harmlessly and slowly it appeared at first, but Nathan backed away and went for the pull, missed, and was bowled, sigh, in his defence, the ball kept a tad low 36/6
    10.4 chopped on, one of the last things New Zealand needed, made room for the cut, wasn't enough of it in the end, stays a touch low too, and he loses a bail 54/7

    17.1 pitched up, he gets fron leg away and smashes it, straight to wide mid off 81/9
    18.2 this is a proper catch now, and the last NZ wicket falls to a botched pull off a good length delivery as well, straight to midwicket 86/10
