    5.1 crazy running, it nipped into the pad and dropped right at the stumps, they decide late to go for it, Latham races in from midwicket and hits the stumps direct from a foot away with Mawoyo well out even after the dive 14/1
    7 nips this back in from outside off past the tentative defensive stroke, given out after a long appeal, they think of reviewing but decide against it, replays show they should have as it struck him outside the line of off 14/2
    26.5 skied high towards long-on after he came down the pitch and de Grandhomme runs around to take the catch 115/5
    20.2 comes down the track and skies the heave all the way out to third man where de Grandhomme takes the catch to give his Auckland team-mate Bates his first ODI wicket 81/3
    23.2 nicely timed drive through the covers ends in disaster for the visitors as Waller wants the third and Taylor sends him back after he is more than halfway down, Waller doesn't bother to get back and is run out by half the pitch 101/4
    43.4 tries to loft inside out but slices a full ball straight to Southee at deep cover, on as a sub 171/9
    35.1 first ODI wicket for Nethula and well-deserved, he had Elton in a real tangle, Elton goes for the sweep to a full ball on middle and misses, is struck dead in front 137/6
    39.1 tossed up outside off and Prosper goes after it, gets a thick edge and Kane juggles at slip but holds on to give Nethula his second wicket 147/7
    42.5 full on middle and leg, plays a reverse pull, or more accurately a switch hit, but skies it straight to the cover sweeper, who gets under it and nervously juggles it before holding on 168/8
    44 New Zealand have wrapped up a comprehensive 3-0 clean sweep of the series as Vitori skies a sweep high up without any distance, Baz settles under it to give his brother a second wicket 171/10
