    7.2 good length, McCullum moves back and looks to push into the off side, it takes the inside edge back onto his pads and then onto the stumps and Bollinger is rapt with that. Well bowled, the change of angle did the trick 45/2
    0.6 cracking delivery from Harris, he hits a good length and Ingram plays without intent and edges through to Haddin who takes the simplest of catches. Great start for Australia 7/1
    10.4 fuller, a fraction slower and Guptill drives from low on the bat in the air to White at short cover who takes a very easy catch, well bowled Johnson and the Australians are delighted 55/3
    29.2 bumper from Watson and Taylor takes the bait, pulling off the top edge out to Hussey on the square leg fence, he moves forward and takes the catch low down. Watson has a real knack of taking wickets at crucial times and there's another. Advantage Australia. Taylor absolutely furious with himself 146/5
    22.6 cracking ball from Johnson as he spears it into leg stump, it swings away just enough and Broom is squared up trying to play to mid on/mid wicket and it takes the edge through to Watson at first slip. Australia and Johnson break what was a promising partnership 126/4
    41.5 fuller from Watson, Styris tires to hit him straight down the ground over the top, he plays too early and gets it high in the air and Harris moves forward from long off to take the catch at mid off 213/6
    45.1 low full toss and Hopkins drives in the air to Watson at mid off. He got underneath it but got it high on the blade with no timing whatsoever. Important breakthrough for Australia with only Southee and Mason to come 240/8
    42.2 Vettori moves back and pushes into the off side and sets off for a run, taking on Ponting at cover, Ponting picks it up and hits the stumps to find Vettori just short of his ground, superb fielding from the skipper! 213/7
    46.2 full and straight and Bond drives and edges through to Haddin and Australia wrap up the innings quickly. 245/10
    45.5 Southee walks slightly across his stumps and tries to work it through the leg side and it sneaks past his pads and takes leg stump and New Zealand sink further into trouble! Harris with another breakthrough 243/9

    7.1 Southee bends his back and Haddin is forward and it takes the outside edge, Hopkins runs around to pick up while Watson has called him through for the single and Hopkins hits the stumps to find Watson short of his ground. Great work from the wee fella behind the stumps 25/1
    41.5 76 kph, well flighted and Haddin tries to hammer it out of the ground but misses and Hopkins has plenty of time to remove the bails. The end of a great innings from Haddin, not a bad replacement at the top of the order... 230/4
    32.3 back of a length, Ponting moves back and pulls firmly to Taylor at mid wicket who makes no mistake 176/2
    35.3 back of a length and Hussey pulls off the top edge high into the night sky and Ingram gets safely underneath it and holds on. Good reward for Southee who has bowled very well tonight 190/3
