    13.4 gone! Watson tries to go over midwicket but he hasn't timed that well enough. There's a man on the boundary, it's Martin Guptill, and he takes a safe catch. 73/1
    22.3 what a catch! Magnificent return take from Vettori! Haddin has positively laced that drive after taking a couple of steps down the pitch, it flew wide of Vettori but he thrust his left hand out and somehow it stuck. That ball was seriously well struck, great stuff from Vettori. 114/3
    14.5 oh Ricky, what was that? So much for getting his eye in, Ponting tries for a big slog over midwicket but gets a thick top edge that flies high and is taken by Brendon McCullum at cover 79/2
    23.4 short and Clarke tries to pull, with both feet off the ground the ball lobbing to mid on for a simple catch 116/4
    42.3 he goes for three in a row, but doesn't get hold of it, Brendan McCullum holds on to the change running in from deep mid on 217/5
    45.2 full and drives in the air hard to Nathan McCullum at long on who falls forward and holds a good catch 238/6

    4.5 tries to work to leg, getting an edge and Haddin dives to his right, in front of slip and hangs onto a blinder of a catch. The end of a brief but entertaining innings 27/1
    7.4 tries to turn to leg and is hit on the pad and Umpire Koertzen has given him - looked a bit leg side to me 43/2
    16.3 plays back to one that moves away slightly, the edge is found and taken by Haddin - Guptil goneski!!! 89/5
    7.5 an appeal first up and he is gone - caught on the crease at this one looked pretty good - dead line, height not an issue 43/3
    10.1 tries to pull and he gets a glove down the leg side, Franklin walks and he is gone -- Kiwis in all sorts of bother as Franklin limps off 46/4
    26.2 same shot as the previous ball, but this time he hits it in the air and Ponting leaps up and takes a good catch - a vital wicket and the Kiwis chances take a bit of a dive with the loss of the hero of the first ODI 131/6
    32.4 bumper, hooks at it getting a top to long leg where Bollinger holds onto a catch. Might have been a fraction high for the shot, but when you need 8 an over to win you need to score off those deliveries 176/7
    43.2 steps to the off side and he tries to glance it, but misses and loses his off stump - Australia wins the game and levels the series at one apiece 253/10
    36.6 drives at a wide one and it's edge to White at slip - he's gone 213/8
    40.3 very full and he plays inside it and he loses his stump -- well bowled by Johnson, at last a bowler goes full and straight and it has paid off 239/9
