    9 comes forward and inside edges it onto the stumps. Massive wicket that for New Zealand then 35/3
    0.4 good length delivery induces Marshall to edge to the second slip 1/1
    4 Sarwan goes and how? He looks for the drive and ends up edging it to the left of second slip, where How dives to the left and takes a blinder 15/2
    34.1 and Ryder as he has done this summer strikes. He catches Chanderpaul on the wrong foot as he bowls one full and quick, also gets to swing in late into him. Chanderpaul is rapped on the pads and it is a straightforward decision for the umpire and they are nine down now 101/9
    18.2 and Findlay goes! He is bowled by an inswinger that is relayed onto the stumps by the pads 55/4
    20 on the leg stump, Ramdin is struck flush on the pads and has to go 56/5
    21.4 Vettori has his man now as Pollard stretches forward and looks to defend it as the ball cannons into the pads and Benson has no hesitation in giving it. West Indies are in serious trouble now 58/6
    27.5 outside the off stump, Taylor is looking for that powerful shot and all that he manages is an outside edge to first slip. West Indies further slip into abyss here and Vettori is playing his part in it 70/7
    29.2 well well well! Vettori has his fourth as Powell has another wild swing and predictably, misses. Ball hits the top of middle and leg stump. Powell has to walk back after that horrid attempt 74/8

    41.4 outside the off stump, Edwards comes down the track and gets an edge that bobbles up in the air which is taken well by How, considering it went high in the air and there were three fielders converging on it. So thats the end of the innings 128/10

    5.4 now a double blow as both the openers are back in the hut . Ryder, drives it low to cover where a good catch is taken and Powell will be on a hat-trick 34/2
    5.3 gone! McCullum makes room for himself and launches into a shot but the hitch being the fact that he gets an outside edge and Sarwan, positioned at third man takes the catch 34/1
    7.2 short on the off and middle. How, rocks back and lets go off a pull shot. It was flying on it's way to deep square leg but Taylor pulls off a stunner just inches in front of the rope and it's three wickets in space of two overs for West Indies 40/3
