    3.1 Sibanda poked at that one, short of a good length and this nipped away just a hint, Sibanda had been kept quiet outside off and he couldn't resist stabbing at that one, nicked it faintly to the keeper, that's his first ODI wicket 5/1
    7.3 gone, Bracewell's had an excellent debut so far, teasing the batsman outside off again, moves away just a hint and it's sufficient to fetch him a wicket, it's Chibhabha's turn to play at it this time and he feathers it to Brendon McCullum 12/3
    5.6 cleaned him up, the middle stump is out of the ground, drew him forward with a good length delivery this time, Masakadza was half forward as he tried to drive it through the covers, got an inside edge that knocked out middle. New Zealand continue to be impressive 7/2

    10.6 Kane Williamson, superbly done, pitched up and he drove it uppishly towards extra cover, Williamson didn't have a lot of reaction time there but he timed his jump perfectly and palmed it with one hand before clasping it with both on the second attempt 21/4
    41.5 chased a really wide one and got a nick, pitched well outside off and would have probably bordered on being a wide had he left it alone but he went after it and edged one to the keeper 177/5
    44.6 edged and gone! Short of a good length, he tried to guide that past the keeper and towards third man, ended up guiding it straight to McCullum 192/6
