    13.1 Gayle pitches it up tempting Ryder and he takes the bait clubbing the ball across the line straight down the throat of Sarwan at long-off 142/3
    11.4 goes to cut the ball and it's in the air for a moment. Looks like it's dipping short of Chanderpaul at extra cover but he gets his hands underneath it to take a great catch 130/1
    12.4 Taylor takes a step down the track and makes good contact to lift the ball flat through square leg and it looks like six all the way but Xavier Marshall pulls off an absolute blinder of a catch right on the rope to the amazement of the crowd and Ross Taylor. Stunning! 139/2
    16.2 dropped down to midwicket and the lack of pace on the ball allows them to turn back for two. Looks like it's safe but a good pick up and throw makes things interesting. Oram looks home but the decision is sent to the third umpire and Oram is out by the smallest of margins 161/5
    15 slower ball pitched up and Flynn goes for it. Ramdin makes good ground running behind himself and the ball is spinning in the air for a long time before he makes a decent catch 152/4
    18.5 pitched up and he goes for more heroics but he can only help the ball to the man at long-off who takes a simple catch 184/7
    17.1 bowled up in to the body and Vettori gets caught for room and tries to lean the ball away to third man but can only play the ball on to his stumps 164/6
    19.3 yorker which Mills doesn't connect with and it removes his off-stump 189/8

    1.2 gone! Round the wicket and it's a slower ball on off-stump. Gayle lifts the ball over square midwicket but there's not enough of it to reach the boundary and Oram takes a grateful catch on the boundary. Huge wicket! 5/1
    12.3 rolls his fingers across the ball for the slower delivery which Sarwan gets underneath and Southee makes no mistake taking the high catch at deepish mid-on 87/5
    6.1 a hint of swing and the ball slices off the bat as Marshall gets under it. Flynn is waiting underneath it at long-off to take a decent catch in front of the rope 49/2
    7.4 gone! Goes for the sweep again and another top edge. This time it goes higher up in the air all the way to Oram at deep square leg. The danger man is out. 64/3
    11.3 goes for the big shot but misses and Vettori hits his target as the ball clips the pad on the way through to the stumps 87/4
    19.3 attacks the half volley on leg-stump and Ryder is waiting underneath it at long-off to claim the catch 155/7
    19.1 full toss which Ramdin goes after and scoops it high up in the air to Taylor at long-off who takes the catch with ease 155/6
