    39.3 sneaked through! Beaten for pace, or perhaps Guptill just wasn't quick enough to respond to that, this was pitched up a bit further, coming in towards off stump, Guptill was trapped on the back foot and the ball skidded between pad and bat and hit the top of the off stump, the stumps are erect, the bails are elsewhere 84/3
    20.2 sliding on and hit on the pad, it's given... but McCullum asks for the review. Oh, this doesn't look good for the batsman, he played for turn that wasn't there and was hit on the back leg, there was no inside edge and the ball would have clipped leg stump - McCullum's stodgy rearguard is over! For the second time in the match, he's seen off the quicks only to get out to Peterson 40/1
    30.4 goes back and misses as the ball stays low, Williamson is castled! Peterson has done it again, this time the pitch giving him a bit of assistance and an arm ball shot through, Williamson was shaping to cut off the back foot and it slipped under the bat to tickle off stump and make the bails go pop 64/2
    76.1 and friends, it is time for Brownlie to head back. It was a full delivery in the channel, there was no need to play at that, but he did. The ball just did enough and took an edge, straight through to the keeper 182/5
    39.4 two in two! What a bowling change this is turning out to be. This was pitched up from over the wicket, Flynn was forward and shaping to drive through the off side, takes the outside edge. Kleinveldt looked back just to confirm but he was certain 84/4
    82.4 repeat of the previous delivery, but this one was fuller pitches around off stump after angling in and then leaves the batsman, the batsman thought he had covered the line but he hadn't. The bowl takes the off stump. Outstanding 203/7
    81.5 caught at third slip! Oh I can say it was coming. Morne bowls it at short of length angling into the batsman, but Munro stays on the back foot and plays inside the line. The ball takes a healthy edge to Alviro who gobbles it up easily. 203/6
    84.2 caught at third slip! And he gets another corker. It pitches on the middle and it's full too. For batsmen with limited techniques, that means you have to play it on the on side, but it swings away from there and takes an outside edge that flies low to third slip. Alviro completes a diving catch 204/8
    86.4 and it is all over! Finito! It was a quick short ball on the middle, Wagner goes for a mighty pull but the ball takes an edge and goes to the keeper. 211/10
    85.3 caught at point! There goes another one. It was a short delivery on off stump and the batsman tries to play a cute upper cut (there was a third man there), but he manages to just pop it up tamely around point where the dolly is taken 207/9
