    24.3 uses his feet and chips it straight to White at mid wicket. Poor dismissal as the pressure told and Australia are extremely happy to remove the dangerman 130/4
    7.4 Watson is full again and Guptill isn't totally in control of the drive, nonetheless he hits it pretty cleanly but just off the carpet and Ponting swoops at short cover and collects a good catch low down, big wicket for Australia 63/1
    19.5 full on leg stick and Taylor clips it from the middle of the bat out to deep square leg where Hussey moves quickly and takes a good diving catch low down 120/2
    22.2 Stewart comes down the track, looks to hit it straight down the ground in the air but drags it towards Watson at long on who takes the simplest of catches 128/3
    29.2 Hopes hits a good fullish length and Styris plays a fraction early, it takes a leading edge and floats back to Hopes who takes a good catch low down in his follow through 152/5
    30.4 full and swings into Vettori who stays on the crease and is trapped dea in front, no problems giving that out for umpire Baxter, that was very adjacent 154/6
    41.1 back of a length and Hopkins tries to play square into the off side but it takes the outside edge and through to Haddin. Crucial breakthrough as it's the first ball of the Batting Power Play 213/8
    38.3 Franklin goes down on one knee and tries to sweep a ball that is down the leg side, he gets a glove on it and drags it back onto the stumps. That is unlucky but when things aren't goin so well those things tend to go against you 177/7

    43.3 half volley and Tuffey cracks it back at Harris and he twists in his follow through to take a superb grab and Tuffey's cameo is over. That is a superb cacth from Harris, you just can't keep him out of the action, nor the wickets 236/9
    44.1 pitched up on off stump, Bond tries to hit it over mid on but gets it low on the bat and Hauritz moves forward and takes a good catch at ground level and New Zealand are bowled out for the third consecutive match 238/10

    12.2 the arm ball strikes for Vettori as Watson is defeated in flight, he moves back and it takes him below the knee roll dead in front and Umpire Baxter raises his finger. Important breakthrough for the hosts 84/2
    0.3 Bond strikes! Good length delivery shapes slightly back into Haddin, he stands on the crease and Haddin pushes away from the body and edges to Styris at second slip. Important wicket for the hosts 2/1
    14.1 well flighted and it pitches in line with middle and straightens nicely, Ponting is defeated, it hits him on the pad and Umpire Baxter takes his time but gives that out. New Zealand have a sniff here. 85/3

    25.4 good delivery from Franklin hurries Voges up on the pull and he chips it to a diving Vettori at mid wicket who plucks it out of the air with his left hand. Not a bad grab from the skipper! 150/4
