    0.6 gone, too much walking and shuffling across in the opening over, was outside off as he swung at a length ball, missed, ball brushes pad and strikes leg stump 2/1
    1.3 and another one, they are walking into their dismissals, Guptill makes some room outside leg stump and outside his crease, has a big heave at a pitched up ball, it moves in past his swing, brushes the back pad and crashes into the stumps 2/2
    16.4 falls 9 short of his century! Irfan can't believe he has got him with that delivery, it was the slower ball from the back of the hand, landed outside the leg stump and McCullum was on his knee to slog, came on much slower than expected and he swished at it too early, hits his arm and then onto the stumps 139/4
    12.3 Ashwin judges it well running backwards, Williamson moved a long way across the stumps to fetch that one, tries to scoop it down to fine leg, he skies it and Ashwin runs backwards from short fine leg and takes it well, these catches are quite tricky 92/3

    17.2 it's that man Yuvraj who takes the catch! Franklin was foxed by the slower ball, he wants to loft him but gets a top edge that swirls towards cover point where Yuvraj takes it 142/5

    2.6 Mills times his dive and takes a good catch! It was the off cutter and Gambhir was back at the crease trying to work it away to the on side, ends up chipping it towards the bowler, the ball dipped but Mills dived and managed to catch it inches from the turf 26/1
    13.2 Southee times his dive well! Looked like the slower one from Franklin, Kohli made room and tried to loft it over long-off, it was flat and Southee ran forward and took it well on the dive 120/3
    10.2 soft dismissal! Mills gets his second wicket with the off cutter, full outside off and chipped straight to Taylor at short cover 86/2
    19.4 Yuvraj swings and misses! Relief for Franklin, it was a slower delivery from the back of the hand, Yuvraj was at the crease to smash that over the on side and he swung too early and the ball crashed on middle and off 162/4
