    14.1 and he's got him first ball! Faster ball which squared him up on the back foot and the ball clips of the shoulder of the bat and through to McCullum for a routine catch. First blood to New Zealand and the danger man has gone. 43/1
    30.4 wow! Chattergoon takes a wild swipe and it flies off the outside edge straight towards Jamie How at second slip. He has no reaction time whatsoever and reaches up in to the air to grab the ball. Another stunning catch and New Zealand are well on top here. 74/4
    17.3 gone! Sarwan tries to make room for the cut shot and it was too close to the stumps to play that sort of shot. A thin edge carries it through to McCullum and New Zealand are joyous as Sarwan walks back to the pavilion. 54/2
    22.4 great catch! Perfect length from O'Brien draws Marshall in and he is uncomfortable coming forward. The ball angles off the bat and shoots to third slip where Jesse Ryder takes a stunning diving catch low to his right. Outstanding. 63/3

    84.5 finally a breakthrough! Slightly slower and fuller Nash tries to make a drive out of a nothing ball and doesn't quite time it. The ball pops up towards short cover and it's a routine catch for Flynn 237/5
    90.1 got 'im! An embarrassing dismissal as Ramdin goes to leave the delivery assuming it will turn away when in fact he has just left the straight one. Hits the top of middle and off. 257/6
    98.4 pitched up and he goes for the pull shot only to catch a thin edge and McCullum takes a routine catch 279/7
    99 and he's gone! Benn didn't last long as another fuller delivery tempts him to drive and a thin outside edge carries through to the gloves of McCullum 279/8
    102.4 shorter ball again and the pull shot doesn't come off and it's off the gloves through to the keeper. 5 for O'Brien. 299/9
    107 gone! Slower yorker which totally decieves Edwards and it hits him on the foot absolutely plum! Great ball from O'Brien who has totally deserved his 6 wickets this innings 307/10

    107 a slower ball which looked like it nipped in a touch and it sneaks through the batsmen's defence and on to the off-stump. 316/5
    12.1 and How's gone. Fidel Edwards first ball is pitched up in to the body and he tries to pull it away only to hit it straight down the throat of Chattergoon at square leg 19/1

    63 straighter ball on his toes and Flynn moves across to defend. It looks like going past Edwards but he reaches out and takes a great grab. Breakthrough for West Indies 137/2
    68.2 and an early breakthrough! Edwards probes the line of off-stump and Taylor tries to drive only to catch a thin edge through to the keeper 145/3
    92.2 Ryder goes chasing a wide one and it brushes a thin outside edge on the way through to the keeper. Another wicket for Edwards and maybe the breakthrough West Indies need 245/4
    108.3 probing line outside off and McCullum follows it and this time Ramdin makes no mistake taking the catch diving to his right. Another scalp for West Indies and they could well be in this match if they can wrap up the tail smartly 317/6
    109.5 shorter length again and Franklin prods at the defensive shot. A thin outside edge carries to Gayle at first slip who juggles the ball at chest height before gratefully clutching on to the ball 319/7
    122.5 he gets caught trying to cut a wide one and he's just feeling for it. The ball nicks off the bottom edge of Vettori's bat and straight through to the keeper for a routine catch. A decent partnership there that West Indies will be glad to break up 367/8
    124.1 referral, a big lbw appeal goes up and the on-field umpire says not out. There were two definite noises but it hit the front pad first and then the back pad and the first indications is that it is sliding down the leg-side. The decision comes back and there are shocks all round when Mills is given the send-off! 368/9
    126.4 short length again and Patel defends up high only for the fielder at silly midwicket to pounce on the ball with a routine grab 371/10

    135.2 gone! Patel bowls down the leg-side again and Gayle tries to glance it down the leg-side. It hit's off hit bat and pad on the way down to the ground but smacks off McCullum's right foot before popping up in to the air and in to the keeper's gloves. Game on 342/8
    11.5 great bowling! Flighted up brilliantly again and it turned sharply and bounced up off the bat straight to Taylor at first slip. 58/1
    15 referral, Sarwan goes to play the forward defence and there's a big shout for lbw. The umpire says no and Vettori refers the decision. He's striding forward but it's bat first and it hits him below the knee roll and the decision is given out. Sarwan sent packing and New Zealand on top 61/2
    33.2 gone! Great bowling from Patel spins the ball away off the outside edge and it hits McCullum's fingertips again. The ball is rising this time and carries straight in to Taylor's hands at first slip 106/3
    33.3 extraordinary! A disgusting full toss from Patel and Chanderpaul tries to turn it away to the leg-side. It catches the leading edge and pops straight back in to Patel's hands. New Zealand go wild! 106/4
    89 another bouncer and Nash tries to duck but it comes on to him fast and bounces up high all the way to second slip. Big appeal from the Kiwis and the umpire raises the finger as he deemed it clipped the glove on the way through. Painful end to the innings for Nash 230/5
    96.1 pitched up and swinging away he flashes at a wide one and Flynn takes a simple catch just behind point . Wayward shot there that should have been left well alone 252/6
    107 brilliant bowling. Follows up the bouncer with a superb slower yorker and it hits him on the toe absolutely plum! O'Brien and New Zealand will be looking to rattle through the tail now 272/7
    141.5 some good drift and turn from Patel coming round the wicket and its nicks it away to Taylor at first slip. Great piece of bowling 363/9
    145 referral, Vettori flights the ball in and it hits the front pad as he attempts a sweep shot. Powell doesn't seem happy and wants the decision referred but the third umpire doesn't see enough evidence to overturn the decision. 375/10

    2.2 referral tries a straight drive and it comes off the pad in front of middle and off and on to the bat. The on field umpire gives it not out and West Indies want the decision referred. The third umpire makes the correct decision to overturn and McIntosh is given out. First blow to West Indies 8/1
    22.2 Jamie How takes another vicious swipe but catches an outside edge as he swipes at the cut shot and it races through to Gayle at first slip. He scored some quick runs but is has come at a price. Great catch though 96/3
    17.5 dropped down to extra cover and they hesitate before going for a quick single. The fielder picks the ball up and throws to the keeper who knocks the bails off and Flynn is miles out 62/2
    37.5 referral Benn flights one up and it hits Taylor's front pad as he tries to lean the ball in to the leg-side. Huge appeal from the West Indies and the umpire raises the finger. Ross Taylor request a referral and there was no bat involved and the ball looked certain to hit leg-stump. Taylor is sent packing and the West Indians are jubilant 170/4

    44.1 referral, McCullum takes another swipe at a short one and it looks nothing but the West Indies go up for a big appeal for caught behind. To the batsmen's surprise the umpire raises the finger and McCullum instantly challenges the call. It's even hard to tell in the slow motion replays whether he has hit it or not and the decision comes back given out. McCullum walks off furious and he looks very hard done by there. Surely the referral system is to stop these wrongful dismissals? 203/5
