    5.1 beautifully bowled. Going away from off-stump but the balls swings in a bit before nipping of the surface and turning in to the top of Jesse Ryder's off-stump. Great delivery and Edwards picks up a wicket first ball 37/2
    3 pitched up and McCullum goes for the big shot. He miss-hits the shot and the ball floats to Benn at mid-off. Easy catch. 21/1

    18.3 fast and straighter ball which Taylor misses and it rips leg-stump out the ground. Good bowling but Taylor's done his damage 142/6
    9.2 tries to manipulated the ball and it bounces off the top edge again this time straight up in to the air and Pollard takes a routine catch 70/3
    14.1 sliced away in the air over cover and it's a long boundary out there. Good catch taken on the boundary by Marshall. Oram just didn't quite get that in the middle of the bat 104/4
    15.3 fuller ball again and a powerful straight drive but Gayle gets his hands down quick to take a stunning catch. Good reflexes from the West Indies captain 112/5
    19.1 shorter slower ball which Flynn get's underneath too much and Fidel Edwards back pedals from extra cover to take a simple catch 149/7

    14.1 pitched up from Gayle and he goes for one to many and doesn't get hold of it. Taylor has plenty of time to think about it at long-off and takes a crucial catch 114/4
    2.1 superb catch! A straight drive from Chanderpaul and it's going left of Mills but he dives down quick and takes a stunning grab with his left hand 19/1

    9.1 first ball! Vettori bowls one which keeps low and escapes under Marshall's defensive drive before going on and clipping his off-stump 82/2
    13.1 Sarwan goes for the heroics but gets underneath it too much. The ball spins away high to Flynn at deep square leg where he takes the catch well 109/3
    19.1 pitched up and going away from the batsmen. He takes a wild swipe at it and the ball just nicks off the toe and McCullum gathers the ball. First blood to the Kiwis 149/7
    15.3 slower ball and he gets under it too much. The ball soars high in to the air and Patel takes a simple but important catch at long-off 124/5
    16.2 slower delivery and pitched up. He gets under it too much and McCullum calls for it early and makes good ground to get underneath it with the gloves 130/6
