    8.3 Oram gets the breakthrough. He really hist the deck with this one and it bounces a little more than Watson expects and it takes him high on the bat as he pulls high into the leg side wehre Ingram comes in from the boundery and takes a good catch low down 58/2
    5.6 superb delivery from Bond as he angles it towards the batsman from wide on the crease then it straightens, Haddin looks to play through mid on and the ball takes out off stump 50/1
    26.1 Franklin rolls his fingers over the ball and Ponting plays too early, it takes the bat closer to the stickers than the middle and floats in the air towards cover and Guptill runs to his right, sticks his right hand out high into the air and takes a beauty. It surprised Guptill for pace and he looks pretty relieved to hold onto it. Good grab 148/4
    17.6 Clarke comes down the track and Tuffey bends his back and surprises Clarke as he tries to guide it fine through third man but it takes the outside edge and through to McCullum to complete the catch 100/3
    34.1 Tuffey strikes right away with the new-ish ball as he hits a good length, it seams back in just a fraction and White plays all around it. Big strike for New Zealand 172/5

    47.5 Bond goes full but not quite yorker length and he looks to swing it over the leg side but misses and it clips the outside of off stump and the bails trickle off the stumps 252/7
    46.5 Southee strikes with the yorker. If it ain't broke why fix it seems to be the mindset from Southee as Hopes tries to swing it over mid wicket but the ball cannons into middle stump 244/6

    11.2 fullish delivery and Ingram drives in the air over mid off, Hussey moves back very quickly and takes a great catch over his shoulder and has to fall to the ground to complete the catch. Superb snare from Mr. Cricket 75/1
    20.5 slower ball from Hopes does the trick and Guptill pushes staright to mid wicket. Hopes bowling superbly to the plan but that's a soft dismissal from Guptill who will be disappointed 106/3
    38.6 Watson goes short and hurries Taylor for room and he pulls the ball high on the bat out to mid wicket where Hussey moves around safely to complete the catch. Great break through for Australia 204/5
    33.2 tossed up by Hauritz, Franklin tries to play inside the line and play the ball into the off side but it takes the outside edge and Haddin juggles it but takes it on the third attempt behind the stumps. Good catch and an important break through for Australia 175/4
    41.1 Bollinger hustles in and bowls back of a length and Broom looks to cut but chops it back onto his stumps. The Aussie's are joyous and Bollinger strikes again! The momentum has really shifted since Taylor's dismissal 207/6
