    25.4 not short enough to pull and ends up skying the ball for the easiest of catches for the keeper. Shows what can happen if the bowlers string good balls together 118/2
    12.5 played for turn but only managed to catch the edge and an easy catch low at first slip 79/1
    28.5 very nice piece of cricket there for NZ as the ball shapes away from the left hander, catches the edge as he pushes forward and Taylor's takes it cleanly low to his left 132/3
    43 hatrick of catches for Taylor as the consistent areas from Tuffey pays off. This time back of a length and pushed at but can only manage the edge to first slip 179/5
    38.4 catches a thick outside edge as Ashraful attempts to work it into the leg side but can only succeed in looping it to gully 162/4
    86.2 innocuous looking delivery outside off stump has in two minds whether to play or leave and in the end manages only to get a feather on it through to the keeper 341/7
    47.2 simple catch for the man in close on the off side as the batsman attempted to turn the ball to the leg side but gets a leading edge that pops up 196/6

    95.4 plays back to a ball that goes straight on and would have crashed into off stump. Refers the decision but no mistake from the umpire 402/9
    89 another big swing but can only manage a faint edge for the most comfortable of catches for the keeper 362/8

    5.4 dances down the wicket again but can't get to the pitch and skies it long off. Tuffey takes a very important catch running backwards above his head 35/1

    22.2 patel comes wide of the crease, pitches outside off, Imrul leaves the ball expected turn but there's none and it crashes into the top of the off stump 78/5
    8.2 UNBELIEVABLE! Bouncer catches the arm and balloons up in the arm, batsman looking all over for it as it drops behind him and into the stumps 51/2
    19.3 great piece of fielding from Patel as Aftab drops a good length ball into the off side, Patel runs around the ball picks up and throws in one motion and he's out by 6 inches 72/3
    21.5 sliding into the pads, Ashraful plays back and it catches him under the knee roll. Huge appeal, the umpire has no hesitation in raising the finger. Refers the decision, the ball is shown to be crashing into middle and leg half way up 78/4
    69.5 big swing to the leg side but straight enough to crash into the leg stump as he can't get hold of it. The end of a magnificant innings from Shakib, his maiden test century 252/8
    44.1 tremendous piece of bowling as he drags Mushfiqur forward catching the outside edeg. Safely taken at second slip moving to his left at waist height 157/6
    60.4 advances down the ground trying to smash it over mid on, doesn't quite get and finds Tuffey jumpin gin the air to take a very good catch. Any other man in the New Zealand team and Mahmudullah may have been safe 225/7

    75.5 straight ball outside the line of off stump. Shafiul pushes forward and catches a healthy outside edge, McCullum does the rest 282/9
    76 Southee charges in. Same line just outside the off stump has Rubel pushing forward with hard hands, ball sails through low to McIntosh who takes a sharp catch falling to his right to wrap up the match 282/10
